How much is the iPhone XS worth?
The iPhone XS was originally released in September 2018. The original retail price of the iPhone XS was $999 for the 64GB model. Apple also released a 256GB and 512GB model, which retailed for $1,149 and $1,349, respectively.
Prices for used smartphones always drop over time, so the question now becomes — how much is the iPhone XS worth in 2021? The table below shows iPhone XS prices as of April 1, 2021.
|Apple iPhone XS||$404 (average)||Up to $270||Up to $225|
|Apple iPhone XS Max||$495 (average)||Up to $340||Up to $290|
The average Swappa price shown in the table is for all iPhone XS models (including Mint, Good and Fair conditions, and for the 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage options). While the average price for an iPhone XS on Swappa is $404, your selling price may be a bit higher or a bit lower depending on the condition and the amount of storage in the model you are selling.
The Apple trade-in pricing is an “up to” situation, which is to say this is the max you can expect. The Best Buy trade-in pricing is officially noted as an “estimate” on the Best Buy website and is assuming a 512GB iPhone XS in Good condition.
Trade-in services like what Apple and Best Buy offer can be convenient, but the bottom line is that you will get more money if you sell your iPhone XS on Swappa.
