On January 1, a mobile phone seller in a communication market in Dping, Chongqing, who declined to be named, told upstream news reporters that they have been engaged in the business of buying second-hand mobile phones. At present, they mainly buy iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 from the perspective of Apple series mobile phones. "The newer the product, the more popular it is, the more expensive it is."
The seller said that in terms of the distribution of models, the amount of old models below iPhone X is very small, but some iPhone 7, iPhone 8 and even iPhone 6 can be received sporadically. "The price of iPhone 6 is usually around 200 yuan. The specific price depends on the memory of the machine, wear and use of normal to determine. The cheapest iPhone 6 we've ever received is about 100 yuan."
A long - term concern about the second-hand mobile phone market of the mobile phone enthusiast Mr Yang, also confirmed the same information to reporters. "There are [deals] for the iPhone 6," he told reporters. "The price ranges from 100 to 300, but there are very few [people selling it] because it's such an old model and everyone who needs to replace it has already done so."

The seller, who declined to be named, said not many people are retailing the used, refurbished and outdated models, and that some companies are buying them in bulk. "It's a good choice for doing virtual machines or running some single program task." It is reported that the price can be as cheap as 10-20 yuan more than the purchase price per unit. He added: "If you want to buy thousands of units, it is not a problem."
