It hasn’t been a great year for smartphone sales. Global smartphone shipments plunged to their lowest level since 2013 in the fourth quarter of 2022. IDC attributes this to a significant drop in consumer demand, inflation, and economic uncertainty.

Meanwhile, the demand for pre-owned smartphones globally will soar in 2022, with IDC forecasting a compound annual growth rate of 10.3% through 2026.

Apple says its trade-in program helps recycle old devices. However, the rapid upgrade cycle in recent years combined with declining values ​​doesn’t motivate people to buy newer models.
