Used iPhone Values (May 2020) - GadgetGone

Intro

Just like a car, an iPhones value starts to drop as soon as you walk it out of the Apple Store. How much the price drops depends on a myriad of factors like how old the model is, cosmetic condition, network, storage capacity etc. All these factors can make trying to figure out a fair selling or buying price almost impossible for the average iPhone owner. Luckily, you don’t have to. 

We’re publishing our real, actual pricing data for every iPhone model and updating it monthly. We spend thousands of dollars every month for our trained pricing analysts to pinpoint these prices and we’re giving you that data for free. 

Why would we do that? We’re hoping that out of the thousands of readers who visit this page that a small percentage of them will decide they want to sell their iPhone to us. How’s that for transparency?

 

What do these prices represent?

The true market value of pre-owned / used iPhones in the United States.

 

If you want to sell an iPhone: These prices represent a fair asking price for your iPhone, provided you’re looking to sell directly to an end user on a marketplace like ebay, swappa, craigslist, etc. You won’t be able to get prices this high if you decide to trade in your iPhone to your carrier or sell it to a buyback website like GadgetGone. That said, selling an iPhone yourself can be a tedious process and comes with additional costs and risk. Check out this article for more info on the pros and cons of different selling platforms.

 

If you want to buy an iPhone: These prices represent what you should expect to pay on a marketplace or from someone locally. If you can find a price lower than these you’re probably getting a good deal. A price much higher you’ll probably want to pass on.
