What happens to my recycled iPhone Xs Max?

Most of the time they will be reconditioned, tidied up and resold.If the condition is particularly poor and irreparable then it will be sent to a recycler.

Older and cheaper mobile phones, unlike the Xs Max, will often be sent to a WEEE dump in China and end up being stripped for parts, anything not salvageable might sent to landfill.

Can I repair it myself?

Most people do not have the ability or the patience to repair an iPhone, and the parts are expensive. So the chances of you being able to recon your iPhone XS Max yourself is quite slim, as the Xs Max is obviously a premium model with very expensive parts.

Most of our buyers and recyclers refurb and recondition many used iPhone models every day, sometimes up to 1000 a week... They are experts and make it look easy -- but of course it isn't.

Check out the iFitIt guide if you want to see how hard it is to repair an XS Max yourself. Very hard indeed!
