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

The iPhone 7 has arrived, making that aging iPhone 5 you're still holding onto seem even more dated. With new iPhones hitting retail shelves, it might be time to trade in that iPhone 5, 5s or (perhaps the least-loved) 5c. To help offset some of the cost of getting the new flagship, consider trading in your current device. You could get anything from about $50 to $158 for your iPhone 5s, depending on the capacity and carrier. Returns for the 5 and 5c are decidedly lower.

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, though in some cases it's topped by Best Buy. 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. A phone that is unlocked will generally go for a higher price, but resellers also seem to favor both AT&T and Verizon phones. For all 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.
