The eagerly awaited Apple iPhone 5 will be officially announced tomorrow and by no doubt existing Apple iPhone users will be cramming to get their hands on the latest iPhone. As experienced during the Apple iPhone 4 launch in 2009, Mazuma Mobile predicts many savvy iPhones users will sell their old iPhone to help fund their new Apple iPhone 5 purchase.
In June 2009, when Apple launched the iPhone 4, Mazuma Mobile experienced a huge increase in iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS sales. It was very evident that customers were selling their old iPhones as soon as they were able to get their hands on the latest model and using the money they received to part or whole fund their new purchase. We don’t think the Apple iPhone 5 launch will be any different.
Apple iPhones now account for over 10% of all phones recycled with Mazuma Mobile. The most popular Apple iPhones sold to Mazuma are the Apple iPhone 3GS 16GB at £130 and the Apple iPhone 4 16GB at £265.
We predict that the Apple iPhone 5 will be availble with various networks on contract from below £200. Apple iPhone 4 users will be able to sell their old iPhone 4 to Mazuma for £265, purchase a new Apple iPhone 5 and still have change!
