The iPhone 13 series will be released on September 14. Decluttr, who pays attention to the value of second-hand transactions, pointed out in a data report that one month after the release of the iPhone 13, it is estimated that the second-hand residual value of the iPhone 12 will fall by 12%, and after three months it will fall by 20%.
Obviously, for iPhone 12 Pro Max users, the relative loss will be the biggest. That is, at this time next month, the second-hand residual value will evaporate at $63.44, or about 53 euros.
Last year, after the iPhone 12, the second-hand transaction price of the iPhone 11 was reduced by 15% in the first month and by 20% after three months.
However, overall, Apple’s value retention rate is still relatively high. The second-hand transaction price 12 months after the sale is generally 51% of the original price and 34% of the original price 24 months later. Among them, the iPhone 11 dropped by only 37% 12 months after its release. Android phones generally shrank severely in the same time span, with Google Pixel 2 dropping by 77% and Samsung Galaxy S10 5G dropping by 71%.
