Before we tell you how you can sell your iPhone 5, we will give you a bit of information about the iPhone, when was it released, it’s features, as well as the subsequent versions that we already mentioned – iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S.
The iPhone 5 is actually the 6th generation of Apple’s iPhone. The iPhone 4 is the fourth generation, whereas the iPhone 4S was the fifth generation of the iPhone. The 5C and 5S are considered to the seventh generation. The release of the iPhone was announced nine days before the actual release. Previous iPhone versions weren’t released in September, so the iPhone 5 set a trend and many subsequent versions were released in September.
The phone’s motto was "Loving it is easy. That’s why so many people do." This was the phone’s official slogan since March 2013. As you know, Apple takes pre-orders on many of its devices. And taking pre-orders began on the 14th of September. More than two million pre-orders were made during the first day.
The interest for the iPhone 5 was tremendous and exceeded the interest for the iPhone 5’s predecessor, the iPhone 5 sold more than five million units in just three days. The iPhone was made available online in November and the starting price for the 16GB model was $649.
The iPhone was discontinued relatively quickly. About a year after the initial release, the iPhone 5 was no longer in production. In fact, as soon as the successor versions of the iPhone 5 were released, the iPhone 5 was no longer sold by Apple.
Let’s now look at the phone’s features and see how better and more advanced it was, compared to its competitors. Ever since its release the iPhone 5 was praised for its high-resolution screen and it was considered to be the phone with the best screen that was available and offered on the market.
Apple’s goal when developing this iPhone version was to create an iPhone that has better battery performance, it is two times more advanced in terms of graphics and twice as fast. The phone was also praised for its design while some of its successors were criticized for it. Experts particularly liked the phone’s design and how the aluminum and glass work together and how they are combined together.
People at Apple have stated that they were blown away by the response of the public, considering that it sold out a lot faster than the previous versions. Even some of the carriers said that they have never offered a smartphone that was selling as fast as the iPhone 5. Some experts would go as far as to say that the release of the iPhone 5 actually stopped, or at least, slowed down the advances of Android. One indicative fact is that the iPhone 5 comprised more than 20% of all phones sold in the first two weeks after its release.
Here’s another indication of how popular this phone was. J. P. Morgan, i.e. the company’s leading economist said that the sales of the iPhone 5 can increase the US GDP growth significantly.
2012 was an important year for Apple
The sales figures are quite impressive, as we said. The iPhone 5 sold 70 million units in one year. That’s rather impressive. The total revenue generated by the iPhone 5 exceeded $45.5 billion.
According to many, the year when the iPhone 5 appeared is a year when Apple really upped its game. In 2012, when the iPhone 5 was launched, Apple sold a total of 125 million units, whereas during the previous 2011, the company only sold somewhat more than 72 million.
