A company specializing in iPhone trade-ins has suggested you’d be well advised to sell your iPhone 11 quickly when the iPhone 12 is launched. It expects resale values to fall twice as fast as usual, due to demand for 5G models …
Music Magpie says that the resale value of an iPhone usually follows a fairly consistent pattern: a substantial drop almost as soon as you buy it (the difference in value between a new and used phone), then a plateau period which lasts until the replacement model comes out.
With the iPhone 11 Pro, for example, it lost about 40% of its new value in the first month, but there’s been very little change between then and now. Indeed, that initial drop-off stabilized at around 35% below retail.
The next fall is when the new models are released. Typically, it says, the previous model will then lose another 11% in the first month, increasing to 17% after three months.
But there are exceptions. The base model iPhone 11, for example, was keenly priced, so that saw values of used iPhone XS fall by 35%. It now expects the same to happen to the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro when the iPhone 12 goes on sale.
With this year’s anticipated first 5G-enabled Apple phone to hit the market, the rate of depreciation could be even higher than previous years due to the new phones having this standout feature.
Liam Howley, Chief Marketing Officer at musicMagpie commented on the results of this year’s report, saying: “As we’ve found in previous years, Apple handsets continue to hold their value for longer than any other phone brands. However, they still see their value drop dramatically following the release of a new handset.”
“With the expectation of 5G, this year’s release could lead to an even quicker rate of depreciation for older models that aren’t 5G compatible. Anyone wanting to upgrade should aim to get a price locked-in as soon as possible, to make sure they’re getting the best value for their old handset.”
An iPhone is still your best bet for minimizing depreciation, however.
As in previous years, Apple continues to hold the top spot for the brand which retains the most value, with iPhone losing an average of 43% of their value in the first 12 months, and 61% by the end of a standard 24-month contract period.
Worst is Huawei, which loses 74% in year one and 88% by the end of year two.
Of course, not everyone sells their old handsets: many pass them onto family members. But if you do plan to sell your iPhone 11, you probably don’t want to hang around once you have the shiny new one in your hand. You can check your trade-in value with our partner Myphones Unlimited to see how much your iPhone 11 is worth.

Benefit broadcast raises over $131K for CK Hospice – BlackburnNews.com
Benefit broadcast raises over $131K for CK Hospice
September 27, 2020 6:00am
The first-ever benefit broadcast to support the Chatham-Kent Hospice has raised over $131,000, however, additional donations are still being accepted.
The Hearts Together for CK Hospice Benefit Broadcast was held on September 24. A program to share information about the Hospice, as well as some live entertainment, was broadcast through YourTV and Facebook Live.
“We are overwhelmed with gratitude for the generosity and kindness shown by donors in support of our Hospice families. Even with the COVID-19 pandemic and the many restrictions associated with it, Chatham-Kent Hospice continues to provide compassionate care to those at end-of-life and their families,” said Event Chair Randi Bokor Caron. “These funds will be used to ensure Hospice residents remain comfortable and connected to their families at no cost to them.”
The Chatham-Kent Hospice Foundation announced plans for the benefit broadcast in July as it was clear typical fundraisers would not be able to run as per usual due to pandemic-related circumstances. The inability to host certain fundraisers has posed as a major obstacle considering the hospice relies heavily on community donations and the annual Benefit Gala, which had to be cancelled this year.
Operational costs to support the Hospice requires $108,000 in donations each month, according to the Chatham-Kent Hospice Foundation.
The Chatham-Kent Hospice has served over 823 families since it opened in April 2016.
The Hearts Together for CK Hospice Benefit Broadcast was made possible through sponsorships from several local businesses such as Victory Lincoln, Battery Boy, Honey Electric, MBI Financial, Schinkel’s Gourmet Meats, Teksavvy, Westhoek Construction, and Programmed Insurance Brokers.

The Warriors beat Vernon 4-1 Friday at Royal LePage Place.
Kaidan Johnson gave the Vipers a 1-0 lead, tapping in a goal-mouth pass from defenceman Trey Taylor at 19:02 of the opening frame.
Carter Wilkie got that one back for the Warriors with a shorthanded goal at 16:30 of the second.
Zach Bennett picked up the win in goal for West Kelowna while Cloverdale product Roan Clarke was stellar in net for the Vipers.
The Okanagan Cup is a two-month tournament that will feature the Okanagan’s four teams, the Vipers, Warriors, Salmon Arm Silverbacks and Penticton Vees.
The tournament will consist of a total of 27 games as each team will face-off against one another four times. The games will take place on Fridays and Saturdays with each team playing a total of 12 games.
The final weekend of play will commence on Saturday, Nov. 7, followed by a weekend of semifinal and final action, beginning Friday, Nov. 13 and concluding with the championship game on Saturday, Nov. 14.
“This a great opportunity for our fans to get their hockey fix,” said Vipers executive vice-president Todd Miller.

New Minecraft Mob To Be Added Based On The Player’s Vote During Upcoming Minecraft Live Event – Happy Gamer
Minecraft Live is back on Saturday, 3rd of October and players will be able to vote for a brand new mob to be added to Minecraft. There are three choices: the Iceologer, the Moobloom, and the Glow Squid.
The last time an event like this took place, players chose the spooky Phantom as the next mob to be added. If you’ve ever had a few sleepless nights in Minecraft you’ve probably met this winged beast!
Moobloom, Iceologer or Glowsquid: the decision is YOURS! During #MinecraftLive, on October 3rd, it’s all power to you to vote on which one of these mobs will be added to Minecraft!
Learn more about the mobs and how you can take part in the vote:
— Minecraft (@Minecraft) September 27, 2020
Here’s a quick rundown of the exciting new mobs to be added according to the player’s votes during the Minecraft Live event in October.
First up, the Iceologer. This is a new Illager to be added to the ice biome (you may have seen this character if you’ve played Minecraft Dungeons.)
You won’t find the Iceologer chilling out on the snowy plains, but on the top of the large mountains that dwarf the ice biomes.
They’re not friendly, in true Illager fashion. They’ll start flinging some painful ice clouds at you – might make you think twice about climbing those mountains!
Next up, the Moobloom. This four-legged flowery moo is making an appearance from Minecraft Earth. Unlike the Iceologer, the Moobloom is as sweet as the flowers on its back.
There are some clues that the Mooblooms and Bees might be able to interact with each other in some way. Might make those flower biomes even more special!
Last up, this is the mob that I’m most excited about. The Glow Squid. If there’s anywhere that needs some new fun mobs it’s the ocean biome, which is massive but can feel quite empty!
The Glow Squid will be a brand new colorful addition most commonly found in the deeper and darker spots of the ocean and will add a lot of atmosphere to the already quite pretty ocean biome.
Three brand new mobs, but only one mob can be added to Minecraft. The vote will take place during the Minecraft Live event, a large event dedicated to the world of Minecraft across its many platforms.
To take part in the vote you’ll need to be on the Minecraft Twitter page during the event. A poll will appear and you can vote for which mob you want to be added to Minecraft! The choice is yours.
