How to prepare my iPhone 12 to sell
First of all, make sure your iPhone 12 is backed up. You can do this by heading into Settings and tapping on iCloud.
If you need more storage in iCloud when transferring data to a new iPhone, the Transfer or Reset iPhone option under General will let you do so, as long as you have a new iPhone to hand.
Once this is done, we recommend wiping the iPhone 12 of all data for your own security.
Do I need to wipe my iPhone 12 before selling?
Recyclers will wipe your iPhone 12 for you, as long as you disable Touch ID and your pass code.
We don’t recommend doing this, just in case of the unlikely event of your iPhone going missing in the post. Instead, tap Settings, General and Transfer or Reset iPhone, before choosing Erase.
This is the best way to keep your data safe. Just be sure to back it up first.
What will happen to my iPhone 12?
Your iPhone 12 will be checked over by your chosen recyclers first. Then they’ll fix any problems and, if it’s still usable, may sell it as a refurbished device.
If it’s badly damaged, it may be taken apart and its components used to refurbish other iPhones, while the rest will be disposed of safely.
