Given Apple’s upcoming keynote tomorrow (“It’s time to talk about iPhone.”), everyone’s buzzing about what to expect — an iPhone 5, an iPhone 4S, or maybe even something else.One thing’s for certain, though — your current iPhone will seriously drop in value once the new phone is released. Here’s how to handle it.
1. Look for trade-in offers. CNN reports that Radio Shack was offering $100 for old iPhone models when the iPhone 4 first came out, so we can expect other retailers to offer similar deals. Keep your ear to the ground and we’ll do the same.
2. Take advantage of the online resell market. Nextworth is offering $250 for your old iPhone 4 as long as it’s still in good shape. Gazelle is offering $250 for the same device in perfect condition or $169 if it’s a little scuffed up. Take advantage of this!
