The iPhone 5s first arrived in 2013, at the same time as the brightly-coloured iPhone 5c. For the 5s, Apple kept the same design as the previous iPhone 5 - complete with a four-inch screen, blocky build, and smooth aluminium frame - but boosted the processors and the camera. It was also the first iPhone to have Touch ID for added security.

Though it may have been a welcome innovation at the time, this smartphone is a bit outdated now. If you bought an iPhone 5s, you probably upgraded to a newer iPhone some time ago - and likely filled up the storage space too.

Can I sell a broken, damaged, or faulty iPhone 5s?

A good number of recycling companies buy damaged iPhones, so you could be in luck. To find offers on a faulty iPhone 5s, select the 'broken' condition above, and we'll show you everything we can find.

A smartphone classifies as broken in recycling companies' eyes if it has damage like a smashed screen, broken buttons, or big chips or dents in the body. What's accepted can vary a lot depending on the recycler, however, so make sure you're honest about your phone's condition to get the most accurate quotes.

Can I sell a water damaged iPhone 5s?

Not as many recyclers will buy an iPhone with water damage, but some certainly do. To sell yours, choose the 'broken' condition to see offers. Check the terms and conditions of the recycler once you've clicked through if you're not sure whether they'll accept a water damaged phone.
