- Receive your payment – The buyer will pay you by your chosen payment method, usually within one or two days of receiving your phone
How much can I sell my iPhone 11 for?
Take a look above for current quotes on the iPhone 11. You can generally sell your phone for a higher price if:
- It’s in good condition
- It has a higher storage capacity
- It isn’t locked to a network
Prices from recyclers fluctuate constantly, often even changing from one day to another. If you see a price you like, be aware it might be different tomorrow.
When is the best time to sell my iPhone 11?
If you’re not using your old iPhone 11 and want to get rid of it, the best time to sell it is right now – especially as the value of mobile phones decreases over time.
In the case of iPhones, you’ll usually see a sharp dip in the selling price when new iPhones are announced, usually in September. So it’s a good idea to sell your iPhone 11 before then, if you can.
iPhone 11 price history
The iPhone 11 launched in 2019. Its prices then were £729 for the 64GB model, £779 for 128GB, or £879 for 256GB.
It arrived alongside the iPhone 11 Pro, which had a bigger screen, retailing from £1,049. And the iPhone 11 Pro Max, which had bumped-up specs too, and retailed from £1,149.
Since then, the price for all the models has significantly reduced – and continues to see a big decrease in price whenever a new set of iPhones is announced.

Will my iPhone 11 be recycled?
Probably! The fate of your iPhone 11 will depend on the condition and exact model of your phone, as well as the current smartphone market.
Mobile phones in good condition, especially more recent models, are most likely refurbished and sold on. Phones in less good condition, as well as older handsets, may get their parts stripped and used to refurbish other phones.
Or, they may be taken apart entirely, and their individual pieces recycled, melted down, or disposed of safely.
Can I get paid for a broken iPhone 11?
Yes, you can sell a broken iPhone 11 to recyclers. Just select the ‘broken’ condition on our comparison tool above, and be honest about its condition to get the most accurate quotes.
Just be aware that you’ll get less cash for it than you would for a fully functioning handset.
Cracked screens, broken buttons, chips and dents, corrupt operating systems, and damaged cameras all count as ‘broken’ – and can most likely still be sold.
Some damage, however, is too severe – such as if the phone is snapped in two – and is considered beyond economic repair.

Can I trade in my old iPhone 11 for a new one?
You can trade your old iPhone 11 in directly to Apple to get a discount on a new iPhone, provided you’re happy to buy it outright from Apple.
However, Apple’s trade-in programme may not necessarily offer the best deal on your old phone. It’s competing with other mobile recycling companies.
To get a view of the current trade-in market for the iPhone 11, see the table above. We’ll show you the quotes currently offered by other companies we work with, so you can make a direct comparison and choose the best firm to trade your phone in with.
