A crooked apple and everything is carried away.
Logically, an iPhone 12 costs more than an iPhone 11. However, a small detail can upset all logic. Starting with the iPhone 11, Apple has changed an iconic feature of the design of its phones. The apple-shaped logo on the back of the device is now centered, and no longer placed in the top quarter.
However, while this change seems like a small detail to some, it can pay off a lot of money for others. Who says new design, says new settings, and therefore more situations conducive to careless errors. This was particularly the case with this iPhone 11 Pro, whose logo has been centered horizontally, but with a slight offset on the vertical axis. If some manufacturers would have quickly put aside this manufacturing defect, this is obviously not the case with Apple.
In reality, this iPhone would have simply escaped the quality control of the Cupertino company. The company estimates that the odds of this happening are 1 in 100 million. Ultimately, this defect creates value for this iPhone 11 Pro. Its owner would therefore have chosen to exploit this scarcity to make a little money since on Twitter, the “Internal Archive” account explains that this iPhone was sold for $2700.
Today, Apple no longer even sells the iPhone 11 Pro. Thanks to its slight defect, this iPhone was therefore sold more than double its initial price. It’s not uncommon for Apple products to increase in value over time, be it the first Macs, iPods, and other rare devices, but this is unprecedented given the recent release of the iPhone 11 Pro.
