Eagerly awaiting the new iPhone? Then sell your old one now.
The trade-in value of an old iPhone declines sharply before the launch of each new one, and Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 6 in just a couple of weeks– on Sept. 9.
- In the past, prices for old iPhones have dropped 20% a month before and after the company’s announcement, according to Gazelle, a company that will buy your old iPhone from you.
- The company calls Apple’s launch day, which typically happens in September, “Gazelle Christmas,” said Alyssa Voorhis, the company’s senior tech analyst.
As of Tuesday, a customer could fetch up to $290 for a 16 GB iPhone 5S in good condition. Prices vary depending on what carrier it supports.,
This year, Gazelle is allowing customers to lock in a guaranteed price for their older iPhone now and send it to Gazelle later, after buying the new version. So don’t worry, you won’t have to be left without a smartphone while waiting for the iPhone 6.
- A growing number of people are figuring out that their old gadgets are worth some cash. The company has a 125% jump in trading-in customers this year, compared to last year. On Aug. 18, the first day customers could lock in a price at Gazelle, the company made more than two price offers every second.
“Historically, there’s a lot of excitement when that happens,” Voorhis said.
So if you are eagerly awaiting the new iPhone? Then sell your old one now…
