It’s almost fall, and that means one thing on the tech calendar – the launch of a new iPhone. Apple is renowned for unveiling its latest and greatest call-makers in September and 2021 is set to be another successful year with rumors suggesting this next-gen phone will get an improved display with a fast 120Hz refresh rate, a better camera and much faster processing power. .
While Apple has yet to confirm a date for its next launch, recent reports suggest that one of the company’s main speeches could begin as early as September 17. If that’s true, that means it’s not much longer until the current iPhone lineup starts to look more than a little outdated.
In fact, if you have an older model in your pocket, it might be a good idea to find the box, clean the phone, and sell it before the new iPhone 13 hits stores. That’s the advice from online retailer Envirofone that says some iPhones could lose value over the next few months, with some seeing as much as £ 165 erased from their current resale price.
For example, the iPhone 12 (256GB) is currently worth £ 530 on exchange sites, but Envirofone estimates that will drop by £ 122 by October 2021.
If you have a fully charged iPhone 12 Pro Max (512GB), you could see up to £ 164 erased in value in just six weeks.

There are many exchange sites available including Mazuma Mobile, Compare and Recycle, MusicMagpie, Envirofone, and Compare My Mobile.
