The Apple iPhone took the smartphone market by storm with its release in 2007 and Apple has treated us to a shiny new model every year since. The release of the iPhone 5 in September 2012 was one of the most anticipated and tweeted about events of the year due to the promise of a lighter, thinner handset, a better camera and, of course, that all-important larger screen.

Since its release, however, there have been many other, newer handset releases which have been turning the heads of iPhone fans, including the latest Android models; such is the nature of the modern mobile phone market.

If you’re feeling a little tired of your iPhone 5 and want to sample some of the newer handsets on offer, or if you’re simply not all that impressed with the 5th generation of iPhone, you can sell or recycle your iPhone 5 for cash using our FREE online service.

What Size is my iPhone?

Find out the size of your iPhone by selecting Main Menu > Settings > General > About, then select Capacity. (On some older models you’ll need to tap Settings > General > About). The number shown here will be just short of either 8, 16, 32 or 64GB.

On some models the capacity is engraved on the metal case near the bottom on the back.
