The cool thing about the ‘S’ cycle of iPhones is that they always offer a few little subtle improvements on the main numbered models - smoothing out the bits and pieces that didn’t go down too well the first time around. In the case of the iPhone 5s, that meant giving it the next level processor, better camera lenses, a bigger battery… and, for the first time in iPhone history, a fingerprint sensor.

Other than that, it was identical to the iPhone 5 in pretty much every other way, featuring the same blocky aluminium design - though the 5s was available in a new space grey colour as well as silver and gold.

How to sell your iPhone 5s 32GB

Can I sell a broken iPhone 5s 32GB?

Don’t worry if your iPhone 5s 32GB is broken or damaged - many phone recyclers will still buy it. A phone usually counts as broken if it has:

  • a cracked screen
  • broken buttons
  • power issues
  • lots of chips and dents
  • a corrupt operating system

A broken iPhone 5s 32GB will sell for less than a working one, and even less than a brand new one - obviously - but nonetheless, they’ll sell. Just make sure you’re honest about your gadget's condition and you’ll get the most accurate quotes. If a recycler receives your device but decides it is not in the condition they expected, they’ll send you a revised quote by email, which you can choose to accept or reject. Some will charge postage if you want your gadget back, though others will do it for free.

Can I sell a iPhone 5s 32GB with water damage?

Selling a water damaged phone is a little trickier, but some recyclers do buy handsets with water damage. Search for quotes on a broken iPhone 5s 32GB above, and check with the recycler if you're not sure whether it will accept a water damaged phone or not.
