Today Apple will announce the new iPhone 5S. I’ve been tracking the fluctuating resale value of my two-year old (Verizon) iPhone 4S 32GB for the past few weeks. I picked Gazelle.com to track its value on the used market.
The price was holding steady at $195 until late August when it started to drop.
Today (9/10/13) it jumped up in anticipation of the official announcement.
