Apple recently launched the iPhone 14 lineup, which brought new features such as an improved camera system, the Photonic Engine, and Crash Detection. Not to mention the Dynamic Island, always-on display, and Apple A16 Bionic chip found on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. If you’ve recently upgraded to an iPhone 14, now’s the perfect time to sell your old phone.
Selling your old phone comes down to considering two options — selling it directly to another person, or using a trade-in service. Feeling overwhelmed trying to decide which option is better? Don’t worry…we compared iPhone sale data and trade-in values to help you figure out where you can sell your gently used iPhone for the most money in 2023.
Where can I get the most for my iPhone?
For lots of people, the most important factor is finding out where they can get the most money. This is simple — selling your used iPhone directly to another person always gets you the most money. Not to mention, selling to another person means you’re not going to be paid in gift cards that limit where you can spend your money.
The problem is that there are many potential scams and risks when selling directly — so make sure to use a trusted marketplace with an expert moderation team and hand-screened listings like Swappa.
On the flip side, trade-in services like the Apple Trade-In program are also safe, and convenient. But…because the trade-in business model revolves around reselling the device, you will not get the full value for your phone. Essentially, you will be trading some value (money) for convenience.
Because we realize some people may value the convenience that comes with using a trade-in service — Swappa also offers a trade-in program in addition to our marketplace.
To help you figure out where to sell, we looked at current iPhone trade-in values through Apple’s trade-in service and for Swappa’s trade-in partners. We also looked at the current average selling prices here on Swappa.

Benefits of using Swappa
Unlike the other guys, Swappa sets itself apart by making sure that the buying and selling process is as smooth as silk. Listings are screened by our expert moderation team before it goes live to make sure that buyers get a fully functional, gently used iPhone with a clean ESN that’s ready for activation on whatever network they choose.

And don’t forget: Sellers pay a fair sale fee, and get paid as soon as their item is purchased.
Drawbacks of using Swappa
Swappa is a people-powered, user-to-user marketplace with excellent moderation to keep you safe, so we’re really grasping at straws to come up with any drawbacks. But if you’re looking to sell an iPhone with a cracked screen or one that doesn’t power on, Swappa isn’t the place.

Swappa iPhone Trade-In Program
The Swappa iPhone trade-in program is a newer offering from Swappa. Essentially, this means you can now list your iPhone for sale in the Swappa marketplace, or consider one of the various trade-in offers from Swappa’s trusted trade-in partners.
Swappa Trade-in Program benefits
A key benefit of the Swappa trade-in program is its simplicity. You just select the iPhone you want to trade, answer a few quick questions, and get a few offers from Swappa’s buy-back partners. Everything is outlined clearly, and the amount you will get is shown right up front.
Swappa Trade-in Program drawbacks
As with any trade-in program, the amount you’ll get for your iPhone will be less than you would get if you sold your phone directly to another person. Of course, some people are willing to accept a little less money in exchange for a quick and easy turnaround.
Apple iPhone Trade-In Program
Apple’s Trade-In Program is another way to sell your phone — either online or in person. After answering a few quick questions about the condition of your phone, Apple will give you a quote for what they think your iPhone is worth.
Apple Trade-in Program benefits
Like much of the Apple user experience, getting rid of your old phone using the Apple Trade-In Program is easy. You simply answer a few questions online or bring your device into an Apple retail store for evaluation and you are given a quote. If you’re happy with what Apple offers, they give you an Apple gift card and you go on your merry way.
Apple Trade-in Program drawbacks
Unfortunately, the only way to get paid when using the Apple Trade-In Program is by getting an Apple gift card. In other words, you don’t get cash for your used phone, and you’re stuck with a gift card that’s only good in Apple stores.
The bottom line is that trade-In programs can be a convenient way to sell your iPhone. You just need to remember that you will make more money if you sell your used iPhone for cash in the Swappa marketplace.
