B-Stock says even large buyers, such as those that buy returns from retailers, pay about 75% of their retail costs. This price is significantly higher than the old iPhone models that were sold simultaneously during the product life cycle.
One of the reasons for the popularity of second-hand iPhone X sales is the strong domestic demand in the United States. Although a large percentage of iPhone models are sold outside the US, almost all iPhone Xs are sold in the US, and only 2% are sold abroad.
At the same time, because of the popularity of new form factors, those who want iPhone X, and those who want to save money by purchasing an old iPhone, will not consider other models.
While the resale rate of the iPhone X may be a prominent example, in general, the value of an Apple product is higher than that of most competitors - meaning that the so-called "Apple tax" is more than what it looks like. low.
This is good news for anyone who wants to upgrade from iPhone X to the latest 2018 iPhone series this fall, especially considering that Apple is expected to phase out iPhone X and iPhone SE models. There are rumors that Apple will release three new iPhones in September, which will be designed the same as the current iPhone X.
