Let’s face it. Computers, including smartphones, are like cars. Just driving off the lot reduces its value. A one year old MacBook or iPhone might be worth a bit (especially if it has AppleCare) but after that not worth a whole lot.

Supply and demand. They created a supply but there isn’t enough of a demand to buy the items on the other end. It helps adjust the supply chain.
