Due to supply difficulties, the iPhone 13 is retaining its value better than prior iPhones.

According to new study, the iPhone 13’s rate of depreciation is half that of the iPhone 12. According to the study, even though Apple phones have a higher average value than other brands, they have “exceptionally low depreciation.”

According to SellCell, the iPhone 13 has lost up to 50% less value than the iPhone 12 in the first two months. Furthermore, the iPhone 13 saw the least degree of depreciation two months after debut compared to previous iPhone generations, with a depreciation of only 25.5 percent.

The chip scarcity is one of the explanations, according to the study. Because it was difficult for users to obtain the latest iPhones, their costs remained higher, as many continue to try to obtain one:

These delays are, of course, inconvenient. However, the knock-on effect of such setbacks is inevitably an increase in demand for the product in question. This means that the iPhone 13 has seen the best value retention over the first two months since launch, compared to previous models; not just great news for Apple, but great news for those who secured a handset at launch.

According to SellCell study, the depreciation of the iPhone 13 is 19.1 percent lower in months one and two than the depreciation of the iPhone 11 series. Furthermore, the iPhone 13 series hasn’t simply kept a lot of its worth; several models have witnessed a value rebound following a post-launch decrease.

The premium models have held or regained value, with the iPhone 13 Pro Max 1 TB regaining 1.4%, the 512 GB variant recovering 1.7% of its launch price, and the 128 GB version seeing an impressive 1.8% regain. The 256 GB model remained unchanged, losing 18.3% of its value in month one and holding value in month 2.

The iPhone 13 mini, on the other hand, had the lowest average value of the three devices. Only the 512 GB model restored its worth, recouping 4% of its value. The 256 GB and 128 GB versions both lost 7.5 percent and 5% of their value.

This article also clarifies experts’ claims that Apple will not produce another tiny model because they failed to sell successfully.

SellCell believes that the future iPhone 14 models will not hold their value as well as the present generation:

Could this slow depreciation trend continue for future iPhone releases? Well, possibly not. Unless the component crisis continues into 2022/2023, it is more than likely that Apple will have enough handsets to ensure supply meets demand, once the iPhone 14 comes around. With this in mind, it is unlikely we’ll see this slow rate of depreciation again. We can’t say that for sure, but the chip shortage and global health crisis are unique circumstances that (we all hope) we will never see again.
