How to prepare iPhone for sale before buying iPhone XS

iPhone XS will go on sale on September 28 at a price of 87,990 rubles. To save on his purchase, you need to sell your old smartphone to Apple, which eventually becomes part of the cost of the new one.

In this material, we walk through the main stages of preparing the iPhone for sale: we’ll tell you how to remove everything from it , and what you need to do before and after.

First, break the pair with your Apple Watch, if any

 

1. Open the Watch app on your iPhone.

2. Navigate to your Apple Watch menu.

3. Select the additional menu with the (i) button.

4. Click on the “Break pair with Apple Watch” button and confirm your intention.

When you break a pair with Apple Watch, iPhone automatically creates a backup copy of the smart clock to restore them in the future in conjunction with the new smartphone.

Next, make a backup copy of the old iPhone

 

You can make a copy in iCloud:

1. Open the “Settings”.

2. Enter your Apple ID.

3. Go to the iCloud menu.

4. Select the “Backup” item.

5. Click on the button “Make a backup copy”.

Please note that you can only back up to iCloud using Wi-Fi. iPhone will not allow using even high-speed LTE for this.

To restore data from a backup, when you activate a new iPhone, you must select the option to configure it through iCloud.

 

You can use the usual iTunes:

1. Connect your iPhone to your computer.

2. Open iTunes.

3. Go to the device section.

4. Select the option “Make a copy now”.

To restore the data from a backup, you need to connect the iPhone to the Mac via USB and select the option to configure it from a backup.

Then untie your old iPhone from your Apple ID account

 

1. Open the “Settings”.

2. Enter your Apple ID.

3. Select the “Exit” option.

4. Enter the Apple ID password to confirm the action.

If you do not exit the Apple ID before deleting data from the old iPhone, it will ask you to enter your login and password when configuring it.

If you are going to sell the iPhone, be sure to untie it from the Apple ID.

Now delete data from your old iPhone

 

You can do this with the iPhone:

1. Open the “Settings”.

2. Go to the “Basic” section

3. Open the “Reset” menu.

4. Select “Erase content and settings” and confirm your intention.

If you did everything correctly, your iPhone will reset to factory settings. Consider that it will be as if you just bought it.

If the Find iPhone feature is enabled, you may need to enter the Apple ID and password.

 

You can do this with iTunes:

1. Connect your iPhone to your computer.

2. Open iTunes.

3. Go to the device section.

4. Select the option “Restore iPhone”.

Your iPhone will also be restored to factory settings in the same way.

Put it in order from the outside and sell it.

 

To put it in order externally, use a soft damp cloth, which you need to squeeze as much as possible – it needs to wipe the body of the device.

Use toothpicks to dust off Lightning, wadding sticks and a dry toothbrush for speakers and microphones.

The better your old iPhone looks, the more expensive you can sell it . Ideally, that it covers at least 15-40% of the cost of the new iPhone XS.
