Following Apple’s recent launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, NextWorth.com has seen a lot of trade-in traffic for previous generations of the iPhone.

In the last 30 days, NextWorth has seen a 162% increase in the volume of Samsung trade-in quotes compared to the prior 30 days. Of these Samsung quotes, the majority have been from the Galaxy line, led by the Galaxy S III but closely followed by the S4 and S5 and rounding out the Samsung trade-in quotes are the Galaxy Notes 2 and 3.

iPhone 6 Opening Week

by NextWorth on October 1, 2014

After months of anticipation, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are finally available! With a week of preorders and the first weekend of sales in the books, we decided it was time to take a look at the sales figures for Apple’s two newest iPhones, along with how they stacked up against previous years.

According to reports from Apple, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus sold four million units in just the first 24 hours after preorders became available. After the new iPhones went on sale in stores on September 19, Apple tallied more than 10 million units sold over the opening weekend.

Apple has seen a steady increase in opening weekend sales each year. In 2011, the iPhone 4s sold approximately four million units in its first weekend. In the first sales weekend of 2012, the iPhone 5 sold nearly five million units. Last year, the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c combined to sell nine million units in the first weekend.

In 2013, the iPhone 5S and 5C slowed down after the opening weekend. This is not expected for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus however, as demand for the new phones is very high, evidenced by the iPhone 6 Plus selling out during preorders.

With such a successful opening weekend for the new iPhones, there will be a lot of old smartphones sitting around, unused. Now is a great time to lock in your 30 day price quote at NextWorth.com!
