And one of the reasons why more users are expected to buy an iPhone 12 is Apple’s trade-in service, which encourages consumers to swap their ageing smartphones for shop credit that can be used to purchase a new smartphone.
More money for old iPhones
To be more precise, if you wish to swap in an iPhone 11 Pro Max for an iPhone 12, Apple can pay up to $515, a $15 boost from the previous trade-in value. It’s not much, but it’s better than the $5 boost promised for the iPhone 11 Pro, which now costs $465.
If you wish to swap in the iPhone 11 for an iPhone 12, Apple will cost $380, a $20 boost from the previous deal.
Of course, the older the smartphone, the less money you can get for the cost of an iPhone 12. The iPhone 6s Plus is the best example of this, with Apple just able to pay up to $65 for your handset, a $5 rise.
In the meantime, Apple is hard at work on the next-generation iPhone, which, according to people familiar with the matter, is expected to arrive in September with updates for all four versions in the current lineup.
