The iPhone 12 and 12 Pro arrive on Friday, Oct. 23. The iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 mini are in stores beginning Friday, Nov. 13. If you’re in the market for an upgrade, you might want to sell your older iPhone to make a dent in the price.

Below is our step-by-step guide to preparing your phone for sale, as well as a few reputable sites that will take it off your hands for top dollar.
