Each year we see a drop in price for older generation of iPhone handsets, 2014 is no different as iPhone 5S prices fall in wake of the iPhone 6 launch. Therefore, we wanted to highlight the best time for you to trade in your old iPhones before those prices really do fall through the floor.
What Can You Do About It?
A lot of people panic and tend to trade-in straight away to get the best deal, but it’s worth taking a look at last year’s data to see just what pattern the trade-in prices take. We look at the iPhone 5 data here:
Two days before the iPhone 5S and 5C were announced (8 September 2013): The most you’d have got for recycling the iPhone 5 was $350
The day of the announcement (10 September 2013): The most you’d have got INCREASED to $355
Three days after the announcement (13 September): The maximum you’d have got DECREASED rapidly to $335
The day the iPhone 5S and 5C were available to buy in-store (20 September): The maximum you’d have got for recycling the iPhone 5 DECREASED to $325
A week after the iPhone 5S and 5C going on sale: The trade-in price of the 5 fell to $310 – a reduction of over 12.6% from the day of the announcement.
With prices expecting to keep falling it’s a good idea to cash in on your handset before the end of this month, ideally now, before the iPhone 6 gets launched across stores offline. So head across to our iPhone trade in page to check all generations of iPhone.
