How much is a used iPhone 11 Pro Max worth?
The iPhone 11 Pro Max is part of the 13th generation of the iPhone lineup, which also includes the iPhone 11 and the iPhone 11 Pro. These three models were released on September 20, 2019, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max arrived with an original MSRP of $1,099.
The $1,099 price was for the 64GB model. Apple also offers the iPhone 11 Pro Max with 256GB and 512GB storage options, and these two models launched with an MSRP of $1,149 and $1,349, respectively. Certainly not what many would consider cheap, however, the higher launch price means a higher resale value today.

The above table outlines the average iPhone 11 Pro Max resale value in the Swappa marketplace and the trade-in prices from Apple and Best Buy. These prices reflect what you can expect in 2022. Right off the bat, you can see the resale value is much higher on Swappa compared to the iPhone 11 Pro Max trade-in value at Apple or Best Buy.
An iPhone trade-in at Apple or Best Buy may be convenient, but it isn’t necessarily the quickest way to a payday. It will also limit where you can spend the money you get because when you use a trade-in service you will get your funds in the form of a gift card that needs to be used with a specific retailer. As far as the time aspect, you need to arrange the trade-in, ship the phone, wait for it to be inspected, and then wait for your payment to be processed.
If you sell your phone directly, you will likely get paid quicker, and you can spend the money wherever and however you want.
The other factors that affect smartphone pricing include the condition, the amount of internal storage, and market demand. The Swappa price in the table shows the average selling price for all iPhone 11 Pro Max listings, including those listed in Mint, Good, and Fair conditions, and those with 64GB, 256GB, or 512GB of internal storage.
The Apple price is noted as being an “up to” situation, which means that is the most you can expect, regardless of the condition and storage space. The Best Buy price is noted as being an “estimate” and it reflects a model in Good condition with 512GB of storage.
