iPhone trade-in values have changed, with the arrival of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro decreasing the value of the iPhone 13, iPhone 12, and even models all the way back to the iPhone 7 Plus. However, select iPhone models are now worth more.

Spotted by 9to5Mac, a majority of iPhone owners looking for an upgrade won't get as much value for their old iPhones. Apple often changes the maximum values of iPhone, iPad, and MacBook models in its trade-in program, usually close to big events like Black Friday 2022.

Some trade-in value prices have dropped more than others, such as the iPhone 13 Pro Max seeing a $70 decrease and the iPhone 11 getting a $20 price drop. Find out if your iPhone is now worth less or more below.
