iPhone 6s upgrade: Now is the time to sell your ‘old’ iPhone 6 for the best possible price

iPhone 6s Upgrade Best Sell Prices iPhone

You might be one of the millions of buyers eying the upcoming iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus launch, which means you might also be looking at ways of ditching that old iPhone or Android device you currently own. Sure, you could pass the device to a family member or sell it yourself on eBay or Craigslist, but there’s another hassle-free way of doing it: Sell your device to an online reseller that will take care of everything for you.

Luckily, there are at least two such companies willing to guarantee the best price you can get for the iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5 and other devices, as long as you’re ready to act fast. Or, if you’re looking to buy used iPhones, you can check the same sites for competitive offers.

Starting on September 2nd through September 9th, Gazelle guarantees the best price for iPhone trades. That means the company will pay you more cash than any of the wireless carriers (or Apple) that are accepting iPhone trade-ins.

Better yet, if customers find better offers, Gazelle will beat them. The company is buying iPhone models regardless of carrier status, with prices ranging from $176 for an unlocked 16GB iPhone 5s to $481 for a Verizon 128GB iPhone 6 Plus model.

Pricing varies depending on iPhone model and the condition of the phone. Obviously, the better the device, the more cash you’ll be receiving for it, which can then be used towards an iPhone 6s purchase. Check the following tables to see how much Gazelle is willing to pay for your device.


UpgradeSwap is also looking to guarantee iPhone prices so that you can sell your existing iPhone model in time for the iPhone 6s launch for the best possible price.

Unlike Gazelle, UpgradeSwap has an extended lock-in period, expiring on September 22nd. Moreover, the company also says that you can send in your used phone by November 10 and still receive the quoted price that you received when you locked it in.

However, UpgradeSwap doesn’t offer any cost quotes for iPhone 6 or older models.
