With the launch of new iPhones set to take place on the evening of 12 September, Gumtree South Africa has detailed the average price of used iPhones on its platform.
Claire Cobbledick, head of core business at Gumtree South Africa, said not enough South Africans appreciate how much value there is in their old phones.
“The average second-hand smartphone on Gumtree sells for R4,500, which represents a significant subsidy for the purchase of a new iPhone 8,” she said.
“No matter how old your iPhone is, there’s someone out there who wants to buy it.”
Cobbledick said the price of a used phone will depend on how well it has been looked after, but detailed the average prices for used iPhones.
