5 Steps to Get the Most Money Selling an Old or Broken iPad

Do you have an old or broken iPad just sitting around collecting dust? Why not recycle your old iPad and earn some extra cash by doing so? The longer you hold onto your iPad the more it will lose its value even if you have only used it a few times. 

Steps to Sell Your Used iPad for the Most Cash

Step 1: Back it up

If you don't have anything important you wish to save then you can skip this step. However if you have photos, contacts, or anything else that you want to transfer to your new iPad then this as an important step for you. 

The easiest way to backup your iPad (and not use up all your iCloud storage) is by plugging it into your computer and opening iTunes.

Once you plug in your iPad and open iTunes, it will automatically start backing it up. If for some reason it doesn't do so you can also manually start the back up process and save all your important information for future use. 

Step 2: Sign out of iCloud

Open up your settings, tap on your name, scroll down the page and click “Sign Out.” You’ll be prompted to enter your password and then hit “Turn Off.” If your iPad is broken and you cant sign out from the iPad you can also sign out of your iCloud account remotely from your computer.

Step 3: Erase your iPad

Go back to your settings. This time, go to General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings. You may be prompted to enter a password. After select "Erase iPad".

Step 4: Gather your iPads accessories and box that it came with

If you don't have the accessories or box anymore do not worry you can still sell it. But, if you do have them it will help bring up the value ensuring you get the most cash for your iPad.

● Original iPad box

● Apple charging cable

● Apple wall adapter

● Headphone (if unused in original packaging)

Step 5: Find the best place to sell your iPad for the best price

There are many ways and places that you can sell your iPad.

Option 1: Sell your iPad yourself

You can sell your iPad through sites like Craigslist, Offer Up, or Facebook Marketplace. However you will have to deal with buyers haggling you on price or people flaking on the meet up. After you find a buyer you still have to set up a time and place to meet that is OK for both parties. This can be frustrating and often times just not worth the hassle.

Option 2: Sell it to a 3rd party retailer

You can sell your iPad through eBay or Amazon but you will be charged an arm and a leg on fees. Your carrier store like Verizon or AT&T also buyback old iPad's but only offer store credit that you have to spend at their stores. Like the old phrase goes "Cash is KING"
