It has not been a good year for smartphone sales. Global smartphone shipments fell to the lowest level since 2013 in Q4 2022, IDC attributes to significantly lower consumer demand, inflation and economic uncertainty.

On the other hand, global demand for used smartphones increased in 2022, with IDC forecasting a compound annual growth rate of 10.3 percent through 2026.

Apple says its trade-in program helps recycle old devices. But, the increasing upgrade cycles of recent years coupled with price cuts are not helping to motivate people to buy new models. This change is certainly not surprising, but the drop in sales is certainly going to hurt.
