iPhone 13 hold better resale value compared to its rival Android flagship, the Google Pixel 6. Not a surprise, given that Apple's iPhone s have always held their value better than similarly priced Android smartphones of that year. Despite an easy early availability of the iPhone 13, the depreciation value for the iPhone 13 dipped to 24.9 percent in its first month.
However, over the time, the iPhone 13 has regained its value by 3.1 percent over the months. The story is same for other iPhone 13 series models, with the iPhone 13 Mini having the lowest depreciation rate and has only improved over the months. The iPhone 13 Pro 1TB also seems to have lower depreciation value in comparison to the iPhone 13.
iPhone 13 does not depreciate as fast as its rivals
The report from SellCell suggests that the iPhone 13 Pro Max was the one that saw the most depreciation, with 34.9 percent in the first month and now stands at 28.9 percent. However, these figures are comparatively better than that of the Google Pixel 6, which saw sharper depreciation rates.
The Pixel 6 Pro lost the most value in its first month, standing first at 46.6 percent. The Pixel 6 Pro with 256GB depreciated by 43.9 percent whereas the Pixel 6 Pro with 512GB storage depreciated by 41.8 percent. That's almost half the price since its launch.
The Pixel 6 128GB depreciated by 36.6 percent whereas the 256GB variant of the same depreciated by 44.2 percent.
Analysts, however, are hopeful of the Pixel 6 regaining some of its lost value in the coming months.
Meanwhile, the iPhone 13 continues to sell in India without any drop in its price. The iPhone 13 Mini with 128GB starts at a price of Rd 69,990 whereas the iPhone 13 costs ₹79,990. Analysts predict that Apple could drop the prices of the iPhone 13 in the coming months to make them better deals in comparison to its upcoming rivals from Samsung and OnePlus.
