There is no more support. Trouble?
iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have stopped updating. The other day, Apple released the final iOS 12.4.2 firmware for them, which implements the latest major fixes. No more updates are needed. What now do the owners of the iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, which in Russia is really a lot? We analyzed the Russian market and found the answer.
iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 in the top in Russia
iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 are incredibly popular smartphones in Russia. And many do not even understand the real scale.
According to the latest statistics from the research company DeviceAtlas, as of September 2019, the iPhone 6 accounted for 4.22% of the total number of smartphones in Russia! The share of iPhone 5s is 2.84%. Nationwide, these are really powerful indicators.
iPhone 6 is the second most popular iPhone model in Russia, second only to iPhone 7. Already become legendary iPhone 5s is in the sixth position in the rating. More than excellent performance for such old smartphones.
What to do now with iPhone 5s and iPhone 6
And this whole army of iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 users will no longer receive the latest versions of iOS with new features and fixes. iOS 13 does not support these smartphones, there will be no more updates.
There are several ways out of the situation. If you have the opportunity to purchase a new smartphone, then the iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 should be disposed of right now.
Earlier, our analysis of the Russian secondary market showed that the iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 fell in price after the release of iOS 13 by 10-20%. Price drops occur in all regions.
Further, the cost of smartphones will only fall. The new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max are out, discounts on older Apple smartphones will come soon. Accordingly, the average price of used smartphones, including the iPhone 5s and iPhone 6, will decrease.
The ideal option is to sell the iPhone 5s / 6 now, while the price in the secondary market has not slipped, but buy a new iPhone in December. Then there will be discounts on current iPhone models, it will save. True, this option is complicated, because you need to have a spare smartphone for the waiting time.
Can pass iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 in trade-in? We do not recommend it. For these models, our stores give a mere penny. If the same iPhone 6 in good condition can be sold on average for 10 thousand rubles (or even more), then when exchanging for trade-in only 2-3 thousand rubles. This is not fiction, here is a fresh calculation of putting iPhone 6 in good condition for trade-in at Svyaznoy. It is not profitable.
And, of course, you can continue to use your smartphone. iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 work fine on iOS 12.4.2. High speed, no battery life over time. Apple has fixed the latest bugs and security holes.
After that, the smartphone can be returned for use to the child or parents. Selling these models in the secondary market in a year will be completely unprofitable. The price will fall another 30-40%.
Earlier, we talked about how users recognized the iPhone 5s as one of the most beautiful smartphones in history.
