How Much is Your iPhone 5 / 5s / 5c Worth Now?

Time flies at lightspeed in world of iPhone updates. With the expected release of the iPhone 7 this fall, if you're still holding on to an iPhone 5, 5s, or (perhaps the least-loved) 5c, it might be time to trade your petite handset in for a larger display and better features. To help offset some of the cost of getting the new flagship, consider trading in your current device. You could get anything from about $30 to $210 for your iPhone 5/5c/5s.

The lists below show the maximum credit and cash offers you can now expect if you decide to trade-in your iPhone 5s, 5c, or plain old 5 at these major retailers that have trade-in programs.

Just like it did in previous years, Amazon generally offers the best prices for AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon phones. NextWorth and Gazelle offer comparable prices, with Gazelle offering more for phones that are "flawless" and look like they've "never been used."

Verizon phones will receive a higher offer no matter where you trade it in — credit Verizon's far-reaching network — but don’t expect as much from Sprint or T-Mobile phones. In most cases, a phone that is unlocked will go for a higher price, but surprisingly, models with higher storage capacities don't always bring in more money. For each of these estimates, we assumed the phone is in good,working condition without a cracked screen or other visible damage.

With Amazon and Best Buy, the color of your old phone matters, but the difference is usually only by a few dollars. GameStop, Gazelle, Next Worth and Walmart do not specify the color.
