The iPhone X dropped the home button in favor of an all-screen front face and gesture-driven UI. Apple said the iPhone X was the future and touted how it was packed with “innovative” features — but that was in 2017 and we’re in 2022 now.
Here at Swappa, we believe that smartphones can easily last several years. Despite the iPhone X coming up on the five-year mark, it remains a capable and popular phone. In fact, used iPhone X phones are regularly among the top-ten best-selling phones on Swappa because they’re fast, sleek, and can run all the latest games and apps.
But if you are still rocking an iPhone X as your daily driver, you may be tempted to upgrade. It doesn’t matter whether you’ve already upgraded to a newer iPhone and have a gently used iPhone X sitting around, or if you are planning on upgrading soon — you are probably wondering something along the lines of, “How much can I sell my iPhone X for?”

How much can I sell my iPhone X for in 2022?
The iPhone X was announced in September 2017 as part of the 11th generation iPhone lineup. The 11th generation includes the iPhone X along with the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. But unlike the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus which arrived for sale in late September 2017, the iPhone X wasn’t available until early November 2017.
The iPhone X was the first iPhone to ditch the home button and Touch ID in favor of a gesture-based user experience and Face ID. It was also fairly expensive at the time with an MSRP of $999 for the 64GB model. Apple also released a 256GB version of the iPhone X, which was priced at $1,149. The initial price likely turned some would-be buyers away, but it also means you stand to get a decent return if you are selling in 2022.
The table below shows the difference between selling an iPhone X for cash and using a trade-in service as of September 2022.
|Apple iPhone X||$310 (average)||Up to $190||Up to $180|
We’re pretty sure that you noticed the difference — you will get much more if you decide to sell your used iPhone X.
The Swappa price shows the average of all iPhone X sales, which includes models listed in Mint, Good, and Fair conditions, and those with 64GB and 256GB of storage space. That said, the amount you get for your iPhone X may be a little higher or lower depending on the condition and storage. The Apple trade-in price is listed as being “up to” which is to say that is the most you can expect regardless of the condition or storage. The Best Buy price is noted as being an “estimate” and it was based on a Good condition iPhone X with 256GB of storage.
Sell your iPhone X on Swappa
It seems pretty clear that selling directly to another person is the way to go. Not only will you get more money in return with a sale, but you will also be able to spend that money wherever you want. With trade-in services, your payment is often in the form of a gift card and that means your spending will be limited to a specific retailer.
Fortunately, selling an iPhone X for cash in the Swappa marketplace is an easy process. Swappa is an active marketplace and has a strict no junk, no jerks policy. This means all phones must meet our criteria requirements such as being fully functional and not having any cracked glass.
