What's My iPhone Worth? Apple iPhone Values | December 2020

Intro

What is the resale market value of a used iPhone?
What is the resale market value of a used iPhone?

Just like a car, an iPhone’s 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 its cosmetic condition, network, storage capacity, how old the model is, and more. 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. 

Each month, we’ll be publishing our real, actual pricing data for every iPhone model. Consider this your iPhone’s TMV (True Market Value), or any other related acronym you can think of. We spend thousands of dollars each month for our trained pricing analysts to pinpoint these values. And fortunately for you, you’ll get to see it all for free.  

Why would we do that? Well, we’re hoping that, out of the thousands of readers who visit this page, some 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 fair market value of pre-owned/used iPhones in the United States.

 

If you want to sell an iPhone:

If you’ve been googling “how much can I sell my iPhone for,” the following prices represent your model’s fair asking price, provided you’re looking to sell directly to an end-user on a resale marketplace like eBay, Swappa, or Craigslist.

That being said, selling an iPhone yourself can be a tedious process that comes with its fair share of additional costs and risks such as scammers, security issues, haggling, and people who are never ready to pull the trigger and buy. So, be sure to weigh your options when deciding your selling method. 

Keep in mind that you won’t be able to get prices this high if you decide to trade in your iPhone with your cellular provider or Apple or want to sell it to a buyback website like GadgetGone. To learn more about your iPhone’s trade-in or resale value with a carrier or a buyback program, click on your model below:

If you want to buy an iPhone:

These prices represent what you should expect to pay for a pre-owned iPhone on a resale marketplace or from someone locally. If you can find a price lower than these, you’re probably getting a good deal. If the price is much higher, however, you’ll probably want to take a pass. 

iPhone 11 Pro Max

iPhone 11 Pro Max Value (Fair Market):

The iPhone 11 Pro Max was Apple’s most recent top-tier flagship model before the new iPhone 12 dropped. As one of the newest iPhone generations, the iPhone 11 Pro Max has retained its value well so far, however, you can expect it to depreciate substantially with the release of the new iPhone.

Any date before September (or an iPhone launch event) is a great time to sell. October to November will be the best times to buy to save on a pre-owned iPhone 11 Pro Max.

iPhone 11 Pro Value (Fair Market):

The iPhone 11 Pro was the most recent flagship model from Apple prior to the launch of the iPhone 12. It’s identical to the 11 Pro Max, just smaller (and less expensive). As one of Apple’s newest iPhones, the iPhone 11 Pro has retained its value well so far, but you can expect a sizeable decrease in price with each new iPhone announcement from Apple.

Any date before September, or the newest Apple iPhone event, is a great time to sell. October and November are good times to buy if you’re looking for a great deal on a used iPhone 11 Pro.

iPhone XS Max

iPhone XS Max Value (Fair Market):

The iPhone XS Max was Apple’s top-tier, flagship model in 2018. These iPhones already went through their biggest value-loss period when the iPhone 11 Pro Max series was launched in 2019. You can expect a moderate decrease in price whenever Apple announces its newest model.

Any date before September (or a new iPhone launch) is a great time to sell this model. October to November are the best times to buy if you’re looking for a great deal on a new-to-you iPhone XS Max.

iPhone XS

iPhone XS Value (Fair Market):

The iPhone XS was Apple’s flagship model in 2018. It’s identical to the iPhone XS Max, just smaller. These iPhones already went through their biggest value-loss period when the new iPhone 11 Pro series was launched in 2019. They haven’t maintained their value as well compared to other models and are a relative bargain if you’re in the market to purchase a used iPhone. You can expect a moderate decrease in price due whenever a new iPhone is announced.

Any date before September, or an Apple iPhone event, is a great time to sell this model. However, October and November are the best times to buy if you’re looking for a deal on a pre-owned iPhone XS.

iPhone X

iPhone X Value (Fair Market):

The iPhone X was Apple’s flagship model in 2017. It was also the first iPhone to be released with Face ID. This feature, along with its sleek glass back, make it look similar to the newest model iPhones. As such, it’s done a great job retaining its value. These iPhones already went through their biggest value-loss period when the iPhone XS series was launched in 2018. You can expect a moderate decrease in price whenever a new iPhone is unveiled.

Any date before September (or an iPhone launch) is a great time to sell this model. Looking to buy an iPhone X used? Stick to October and November for the best deal.

iPhone 8 Value (Fair Market):

The iPhone 8 debuted in 2017 as Apple’s more affordable alternative to the iPhone X. It’s almost identical to the iPhone 8 Plus, just smaller and with a single rear camera. These iPhones have retained their value fairly well so far, but you can expect a moderate decrease in price (around $40) whenever Apple announces its newest model.

iPhone 7 Plus

iPhone 7 Plus Value (Fair Market):

The iPhone 7 Plus was Apple’s flagship model in 2016 and is the big brother of the iPhone 7. These iPhones already went through their biggest value-loss period when the iPhone X series was launched in 2017. They’ve done a good job retaining value since then, but with the unveiling of the iPhone 12, the iPhone 7 Plus is running on fumes when it comes to resale value. You can still expect some depreciation, however, when the next iPhone is released.

Any date before September is a great time to sell this model. October to November will be the best time to buy if you’re looking for a deal.

iPhone SE (1st gen.)

iPhone SE (1st gen.) Value (Fair Market):

The original iPhone SE was released by Apple in 2015 as a more affordable, much smaller alternative to the iPhone 6s. Its target market was aimed at customers who missed the convenient size of the iPhone 5 series.

These iPhones have done a very poor job of retaining value and you shouldn’t expect to see prices change drastically any time soon, as they’ve already lost over 80% of their original value. Given that, really any time is a good time to buy a used, 1st-gen iPhone SE.

iPhone 6s Plus

iPhone 6s Plus Value (Fair Market):

The iPhone 6s Plus was Apple’s top-tier, flagship model in 2015 and is the big brother of the iPhone 6s. These iPhones already went through their biggest value-loss period when the iPhone 7 series was launched in 2016. They’ve done a decent job retaining value since then, but given that the iPhone 6s Plus has already lost a considerable amount of their value, you should only expect a slight decrease when the next iPhone is released.

If you’re thinking of selling, we recommend acting fast while their value still holds. If you’re buying, you should be able to find a good deal any time.

As their value has already decreased substantially, you can expect just a small decrease in price when the next iPhone is released.

Act fast if you’re thinking of selling to capitalize on any remaining value. And if you’re buying, really any time is a good time to buy a pre-owned iPhone 6s.

They’ve done a good job retaining value since then, but they’re running on fumes, so expect only a small decrease with the next new iPhone announcement.

If you’re thinking of selling, we recommend acting fast while their value still holds (but especially before the next Apple iPhone event). If you’re buying, you should be able to find a good deal really any time, but especially in October and November.

iPhone 6

iPhone 6 Value (Fair Market):

The iPhone 6 was released by Apple in 2014 as the smaller version of the iPhone 6 Plus. These iPhones have done a good job of retaining their value over time. Even so, it’s been over six years since this model was released. Currently, they’ve lost over 90% of their fair market value. So, you shouldn’t really expect its value to decrease much over the coming year. Given that, really any time is a good time to buy or sell a used iPhone 6.
