How much is my iPhone worth? (June 2020)

How much is my iPhone worth? (June 2020)



Technology moves fast and if you’re looking to get the most money for your old iPhone, the sooner you sell it the better. Whether you’re looking to upgrade or get rid of an old iPhone you’re no longer using, there are a few options you can use to get paid.

Although trading-in a used iPhone for credit is always an option, like a used car dealership, you won’t receive anywhere near your iPhone’s actual value. Why receive peanuts for your old iPhone when you can sell it on Swappa and get more money?

Unlike trade-in services that flip your old phone for profit, Swappa lets you sell your iPhone directly to buyers, allowing you to pocket the full value of your old iPhone. Simply put: Swappa is the best way to get the most money for your old iPhone.

To show you just how much your used iPhone is worth, we compared the average price for all iPhones in the Swappa marketplace with trade-in services from Apple, Best Buy, and Gazelle. This will help give you a much more accurate view of the true value of your used iPhone.

How much is the iPhone SE worth?

iPhone SE (64GB) $138 $20 $15 $40
iPhone SE (128GB) $115 $20 $20 $53

(Unlocked, good condition, Swappa average prices for June 2020)

On Swappa, the 64GB iPhone SE is worth around $138, while the higher 128GB model averages $115. iPhone SE prices start at $50 and go up to $245 depending on the condition, carrier and storage size.

Apple introduced the iPhone SE in March 2016, at a retail price of $399 (16GB) and $499 (64GB). Apple would later replace the 16GB and 64GB models with higher capacity 32GB and 128GB storage options in 2017.

In 2018, the iPhone SE was officially retired with the release of the iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max. That means if you’re looking to buy the now discontinued iPhone SE, you’ll have to find a used or refurbished model. To see the current going rate for an iPhone SE on Swappa, simply hit the button down below.

How much is the iPhone 6S worth?

iPhone 6S (32GB) $147 $30 $45 $39
iPhone 6S Plus (32GB) $177 $65 $60 $66

(Unlocked, good condition, Swappa average prices for June 2020)

Swappa is not only the best place to find a great deal on the iPhone 6S, but it’s also where anyone looking to sell their iPhone 6S can get the true value for it. The current average value for an iPhone 6S on Swappa is around $147, while the larger iPhone 6S Plus is at $177. That’s about double what you could get for the iPhone 6S if you traded it in at Apple, Best Buy, or Gazelle.

For a quick price history refresher, the iPhone 6S was officially released in September 2015, alongside the larger sized iPhone 6S Plus. The original retail price for the iPhone 6S was $649 (16GB), $749 (64GB), and $849 (128GB), while the iPhone 6S Plus added $100 to those prices. Apple eventually removed the 16GB and 64GB models with the release of the iPhone 7 in 2016, offering a new 32GB option instead.

In 2018, Apple officially discontinued the iPhone 6S, along with the iPhone SE and iPhone X. The iPhone 6S remains a fan-favorite and solid option for those wanting an iPhone experience without the high markup. This makes the iPhone 6S perfect for first time phone users, or someone who doesn’t need all the bells and whistles of newer models.

How much is the iPhone 7 worth?

Best Buy Gazelle
iPhone 7 (32GB) $185 $60 $60 $78
iPhone 7 Plus (32GB) $295 $110 $110 $111

(Unlocked, good condition, Swappa average prices for June 2020)

On Swappa, the iPhone 7 (32GB) is worth around $185, while the larger sized iPhone 7 Plus (32GB) averages $295. This is where we see the biggest difference in value from places like Apple, Best Buy and Gazelle where Swappa gets you almost triple the price in some cases. Instead of trading in your iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, Swappa gets you the true value for your used tech.

The iPhone 7 was originally announced in 2016 with a retail price starting at $649 for 32GB, $749 for 128GB, and $849 for the 256GB model. Since then, Apple dropped the iPhone 7 price by $100 when the iPhone 8 was announced in 2018.

The iPhone 7 was officially discontinued in 2019, but you can still find hundreds of models for sale in the Swappa marketplace where it remains one of our top selling used phones. To get the most money for your iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, create a listing today by hitting one of the buttons below.

iPhone 8 Plus (64GB)
$394 $170 $165 $166

(Unlocked, good condition, Swappa average prices for June 2020)

On Swappa, the iPhone 8 (64GB) is worth around $305, while the larger iPhone 8 Plus (64GB) averages $394. This, of course, varies depending on the size, condition, carrier, and storage capacity. Again, why would you want trade-in your iPhone 8 or 8 Plus with Apple, Best Buy or Gazelle when you can get around double the money by selling it on Swappa?

In 2017, Apple made the surprising decision to drop the “S” moniker and jump a full number with the release of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. Initial pricing started at $699 (64GB) and $849 (256GB), with Apple dropping the price to $599 and $749 in September 2018.

Apple dropped the retail price of the iPhone 8 to $449 (64GB) and $499 (128GB), while the iPhone 8 Plus dropped to $549 (64GB) and $599 (128GB). The iPhone 8 256GB and iPhone 8 Plus 256GB models were both discontinued in September 2019, with the release of the iPhone 11, followed by all iPhone 8 models being discontinued in April 2020 with the release of the iPhone SE (2nd Gen). The good news is you can still find all iPhone 8 models for sale on Swappa. If you’re looking to upgrade to a newer iPhone, now’s a good time as ever to sell your iPhone 8 on Swappa and get more cash than if you traded it in at Apple.

How much is the iPhone X worth?

Swappa Apple
Best Buy Gazelle
iPhone X (64GB) $467 $230 $230 $215
iPhone X (256GB) $498 $230 $235 $219

(Unlocked, good condition, Swappa average prices for June 2020)

On Swappa, the iPhone X (64GB) is worth around $467, while the higher storage iPhone X (256GB) averages $498. Compare these averages with the iPhone X trade-in values from Apple, Best Buy and Gazelle and there’s simply no contest. You always get the highest value for your old tech — like the iPhone X — when selling it directly to buyers on Swappa.

The crown jewel in Apple’s 2017 iPhone lineup, the iPhone X (aka iPhone 10), was announced alongside the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. The iPhone X wasn’t officially available for purchase until November 3rd, giving the phone a late start. Pricing started at $999 (64GB) and $1,149 (256GB), making it the most expensive iPhone to date.

The iPhone X was succeeded by three new models in 2018 built upon the original X design: the iPhone XR, XS, and XS Max. This was also the year the iPhone X was discontinued (which means we never saw Apple drop the price), with the iPhone XS adopting the same physical body only with upgraded internal hardware. Because it’s no longer available from Apple, used iPhone X models remain in high demand. So don’t trade in your iPhone X for peanuts — sell it on Swappa and get top dollar instead.

How much is the iPhone XR worth?

Gazelle
iPhone XR (64GB) $506 $260 $230 $244
iPhone XR (128GB) $547 $260 $235 $272

(Unlocked, good condition, Swappa average prices for June 2020)

On Swappa, the iPhone XR (64GB) is worth around $506, while the higher capacity 128GB model averages $547. Prices vary depending on the condition of the device and the specific carrier model. After seeing how much you can get for your iPhone XR, why even bother trading it in? You can get way more money by selling your old iPhone XR on Swappa for its true value.

The iPhone XR was released in 2018 alongside the iPhone XS and XS Max. Billed as the more “affordable” option in Apple’s 2018 lineup, the iPhone XR was a great way for consumers to get a large, full-screen body (trademark notch included), without the premium price tag. Initially priced at $749 (64GB), the iPhone XR was a full $250 cheaper than the more premium iPhone XS and XS Max.

With the introduction of Apple’s iPhone 11 lineup in 2019, the retail price for the iPhone XR dropped to $599 (64GB) and $649 (128GB). As one of the most popular iPhones sold on Swappa, now is a great time to sell before new models launch in September.

How much is the iPhone XS worth?

Swappa Apple
Best Buy Gazelle
iPhone XS (64GB) $512 $290 $275 $283
iPhone XS Max (64GB) $596 $350 $340 $235

(Unlocked, good condition, Swappa average prices for June 2020)

According to the Swappa marketplace, the iPhone XS (64GB) is worth around $512, while the larger sized iPhone XS Max (64GB) averages $596. Since these are only averages, actual prices may vary according to the condition, carrier, and storage capacity. No matter how you slice it, Swappa is easily the best way to get the most money and the true value for your iPhone XS. So don’t trade-in the iPhone XS or XS Max when you can sell it directly to buyers on Swappa.

For a brief history lesson, the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max were Apple’s top-of-the-line handsets for 2018. As Apple’s most premium iPhones, retail prices reflected this with the iPhone XS starting at $999 (64GB), $1,149 (256GB), and $1,349 (512GB). The larger iPhone XS Max was priced at $1,099 (64GB), $1,249 (256GB), and $1,449 (512GB).

With the release of the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max in 2019, both the iPhone XS and XS Max were officially discontinued. This makes the iPhone XS/XS Max especially valuable in the used and refurbished markets, the only place where these models are available. If you’re looking to sell, sooner is always better while they’re still fetching top dollar.

How much is the iPhone 11 worth?

Swappa Apple Best Buy Gazelle
iPhone 11 (64GB) $646 N/A $365 $275
iPhone 11 (128GB) $703 N/A $375 $296

(Unlocked, good condition, Swappa average prices for June 2020)

On Swappa, the iPhone 11 (64GB) is currently worth around $646, while the higher capacity iPhone 11 (128GB) averages $703. Prices, of course, vary according to the condition, carrier, and storage capacity, but it should give you a better idea of how much your iPhone 11 is actually worth. Trade-in values at Best Buy and Gazelle are as low as to be expected, with Apple sitting this one out altogether (for now). Don’t get cheated and get the most money for your iPhone 11 on Swappa.

Apple released the iPhone 11 in September 2019 alongside the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max. Whereas Apple’s “Pro” line represented the best Apple had to offer, the iPhone 11 was more or less the spiritual successor to the more affordable iPhone XR. It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles as the iPhone 11 Pro or Pro Max, but it’s still a great value.

The iPhone 11 retails at $699 (64GB), $749 (128GB), and $849 (256GB) on Apple’s website. Since the iPhone 11 is so new (and in high demand), the phone hasn’t depreciated much meaning you can still get top dollar if you’re looking to sell.

SELL IPHONE 11

How much is the iPhone 11 Pro worth?

Swappa Apple Best Buy Gazelle
iPhone 11 Pro (64GB) $889 N/A $410 $425
iPhone 11 Pro Max (64GB) $932 N/A $480 $407

(Unlocked, good condition, Swappa average prices for June 2020)

On Swappa, the iPhone 11 Pro (64GB) is worth around $889, while the larger iPhone 11 Pro Max (256GB) averages $932. This, of course, varies depending on the size, condition, carrier, and storage capacity. Since both handsets are still the newest iPhones available, it only makes sense that used prices would be so high.

The question is why anyone would even consider trading in the iPhone 11 Pro/Pro Max at Best Buy or Gazelle where trade-in offers are shockingly low, borderline insulting. Meanwhile, Apple doesn’t even list trade-in values for the iPhone 11 Pro or Pro Max (yet). You can either wait, or get the highest value for your iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max by selling them directly to buyers on Swappa.

The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max were released in 2019 (alongside the iPhone 11) and represent the best Apple has to offer. Of course, they also carry a premium price tag to match. The iPhone 11 Pro retails at $999 (64GB), $1,149 (256GB), and $1,349, while the iPhone 11 Pro Max is priced at $1,099 (64GB), $1,249 (256GB), and $1,449 (512GB).

Prices for used models are expected to drop in September with the release of Apple’s latest iPhones, which means if you’re looking to get the highest value, you should sell anytime before then.
