Why should I sell my iPad to The Big Phone Store?
At The Big Phone Store, we believe in hassle-free trade-in for your Apple iPad Pro, Apple iPad Mini or Apple iPad Air. We also always pay in cash (as a bank transfer), so enjoy no restrictions on when, where or how you spend any money you make!
Since 1999, we've been an industry leader in buying and selling electrical device and products. Whether it's mobile phones, tablets or games consoles, we guarantee that our Buy Back Store will give you a fair price. Even better, our Price Match Promise means you won't find a better deal anywhere else. In the unlikely event that you do, we'll instantly match it.
Why sell my old iPad?
There's plenty of reasons for selling your iPad to The Big Phone Store.
Firstly, it's in high demand. Whether you have an Apple iPad Pro, an Apple iPad Mini or an Apple iPad Air, we know you won't be short of offers for it. Apple are a brand synonymous with quality and style. Each year, worldwide sales of the iPad regularly tops 25 million, meaning your iPad is not only popular - it's also one that plenty of people want to get their hands on!
Secondly, there's the price. You'll stand to make plenty of cash for your iPad. For example, if you have an Apple iPad Pro (1st Gen) 12.9", you could be looking at over £300 for it in our Buy Back Store. Or there's the Apple iPad Mini (5th Gen) 7.9" 4G (2019), which currently earns in excess of £340. At The Big Phone Store, we're never beaten on price - so sell your iPad to us safe in the knowledge that you won't get a better price for it anywhere else.
And lastly, there's the environment. With millions of iPads being bought or upgraded each year, there's still too many being sent to landfill. Although this number is declining as more and more are recycled, at The Big Phone Store we're committed to help reduce the number of unwanted electrical items being sent to landfill to ZERO.

How much can I sell my iPad for?
In most cases, selling your iPad to The Big Phone Store comes down to just three factors: 'condition', 'network' and 'internal storage'.
With 'condition', we've kept things nice and simple, splitting our criteria into just four categories: New, Good, Poor and Broken. To give you an idea of what we use to determine each category, take a look below:
New. In its original box. Must not be opened and must be sealed (if applicable). Must not be a refurbished or reconditioned device. Must be the factory original. Must have no missing parts. Must be removed from iCloud or any other account which limits usage.
Good. Must be a fully working device with no faults. Must have no damage, scratches, defects, chips, marks or imperfections (light wear and tear is acceptable). LCD screen should have no signs of discolouration, screen burn, missing pixels or any other imperfections. Must have good battery health.
Poor. Must be a fully working device with no faults (average wear and tear is acceptable). LCD screen should have no signs of discolouration, screen burn, missing pixels or any other imperfections. Must have satisfactory battery health and not require a service.
Broken. May have faults, damage and / or not work correctly. Must not be bent, crushed or in pieces. Must have no internal missing parts.
This list is not exhaustive. You can find further information on specific product pages, as well as in our full Terms and Conditions.
When it comes to 'network', if your iPad is connected to a network provider (EE, Vodafone, BT, Three, etc.), we recommend that you 'unlock' it before selling. As a general rule, 'unlocked' tablets tend to have a higher cash value. Not all iPads are 'locked' to a provider, but many are - so check this by contacting your provider or visiting their website today. They'll have all the information and instructions you need!
With 'internal storage', things are nice and straightforward. Higher 'storage' usually means a higher trade-in valuation!
How do I sell my iPad to The Big Phone Store?
Our Buy Back Store is designed to get you paid fast for your Apple iPad Pro, Apple iPad Mini or Apple iPad Air! So here's how easy it is to sell your tablet to us:
Find the product you want to sell. Either write the iPad model you want to sell in the search bar at the top of this page or find it from the list above.
Place your order. Once you're on the right product page, use our handy valuation calculator and get an instant valuation for your Apple iPad Pro, Apple iPad Mini or Apple iPad Air. Then it's just a matter of choosing a designated bank account and providing us with a few personal details.
Send us your iPad. Usually within 24 hours, we'll send a Welcome Pack. It contains everything you need to send your Apple iPad Pro, Apple iPad Mini and or Apple iPad Air back to us - including a Freepost Bag and packing instructions.
We check your order. Once your package arrives, we'll send an email. We then inspect your iPad and check that the 'condition', 'network' and 'storage' are as you indicated when placing your order.
You get paid! As soon as everything's confirmed, we process your payment immediately!
Can I sell my iPad Mini with a case, cover and / or screen protector?
Unfortunately, we don't offer a higher cash value if you sell your iPad with a case, cover and / or screen protector. These items are considered 'supplementary', so we'll simply dispose of them in the most environmentally friendly way possible.
But remember... Because you've used a case, cover and / or screen protector, it's very likely that your Apple iPad Mini, Apple iPad Pro or Apple iPad Air is in better condition, which means it'll have a higher cash value anyway!
Can I sell my broken iPad?
You can, but we don't pay out for every 'broken' iPad. We suggest you first take a look at our criteria for 'broken' devices - you'll find full and comprehensive details below the valuation calculator on each buy back page. As long as your Apple iPad Pro, Apple iPad Mini or Apple iPad Air meets these conditions (many do), we'll guarantee the best possible price for it!
But if your Apple iPad Pro, Apple iPad Mini or Apple iPad Air is broken or damaged beyond repair, you can always recycle it with us for free! At The Big Phone Store, we're passionate about protecting the environment and promise to responsibly dispose of electrical parts and devices sent to us that we can't fix.
Because of their metal constructions, the Apple iPad Pro, Apple iPad Mini and Apple iPad Air do not decompose easily. Likewise, their lithium batteries can emit harmful chemicals and toxins into the environment. We therefore believe that every broken or damaged tablet sent to us beyond repair should be disposed of correctly - so we follow guidelines set out by the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive, the Environmental Protection Act (1990) and Hazardous Waste Regulations (2005).
Should I perform a Factory Reset before I sell my iPad?
Yes. Unless your Apple iPad Pro, Apple iPad Mini or Apple iPad Air is a 'new' device, we recommend that you perform a Factory Reset. All this does is return your tablet to its Factory State and wipe any personal data.
There are slight variations in the ways you perform Factory Resets according to the different iPad models. But you'll find plenty of tutorials and advice online for each Apple iPad Pro, Apple iPad Mini and Apple iPad Air.
And don't worry... If you're still unsure, you can always ask one of our friendly team!
