But sell that old iPhone first!
If you’re upgrading from an iPhone, you can trade in to Apple for a small discount. Before doing that, check if you can sell it elsewhere for more money. iPhones hold their value remarkably well, especially if they’re in mint or mint condition. We have a guide that works in a few websites that you can use.
Don’t forget to backup your old iPhone before switching to a new model, this will help you transfer everything without losing any data. And remember to factory reset your old iPhone before selling it. You can find our guides on setting up a new iPhone and how to fix it. And if you don’t want to sell, we’ve got some ideas on how to recycle your old gear.
