Previously, decluttr pointed out in a data report that one month after the release of iPhone 13, it is estimated that the second-hand residual value of iPhone 12 will fall by 12% and 20% three months later.
This makes many consumers hesitate. Is it still cost-effective to buy iPhone 12 at such a fast depreciation rate?
In fact, since the release of the iPhone 12 series last year, the iPhone 11 has become a popular product during the double 11 period, which is not difficult to see.
IPhone 11 was released on September 11, 2019 and went on sale on September 20. The entry-level version is 64g. The official website price of the version is 5499 yuan.
Now, the price of the 64g version of the official website is 4799 yuan and the price of the third-party e-commerce platform is 3899 yuan.
In this way, the depreciation rate of iPhone 11 in the past two years is about 29%, andIt experienced a major price adjustment after the launch of iPhone 12. Overall, Apple's hedging rate is still relatively high.
Compared with the 64g version of iPhone 12, the price on the official website after listing is 6299 yuan. Now the price after preferential treatment on the e-commerce platform is 5499 yuan, with a price reduction of 800 yuan a year. Equivalent to the depreciation rate, the iPhone 12 depreciated by about 12% in less than a year. In the next year, the iPhone 12 still has about 17% depreciation space.
In addition, soon after the official release of the iPhone 13 series, Apple will officially adjust the price of the previous generation of mobile phones.
From the price adjustment range of the previous generation, after the release of the new mobile phone, the price of iPhone 12 people will be reduced by about 800 yuan, while the mini version may be reduced by up to 1000 yuan.
By contrast,The biggest gap between iPhone 12 and iPhone 11 lies in the support for 5g network, which is also the biggest driving force for users to change machines.
As Apple's second-generation 5g mobile phone, iPhone 13 will not have a particularly big gap with iPhone 12 in terms of hardware.
What is known is,The iPhone 13 is also an OLED screen with an ordinary 60Hz refresh rate, and the iPhone 12. The processor changes every year, and the performance of A15 is about 20% better than that of A14, which can be regarded as a regular upgrade.
In other aspects, the battery capacity has been increased from 2815mah to 3095mah, which is not much. The running memory has not changed, and it is still 4GB.
In terms of 5g performance, the iPhone 13 will adopt Qualcomm's new baseband, and the theoretical transmission speed can reach 10Gbps. However, at present, the 5g network is still in NSA non independent networking mode, and there will be no difference between the network speeds of iPhone 13 and iPhone 12.
Combined with the listing of iPhone 13, apple is bound to significantly reduce the price of iPhone 12. The price gap between the two is at least about 1000 yuan, which is a good time to buy iPhone 12.
