Upgrade Tech, Upgrade Life: Tips to Securely Upgrade to the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus

One of the country’s leading cell phone buyback companies, iPhone Antidote, gives the best tips on how to sell an old iPhone in order to upgrade to an iPhone 7

The official launch of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus has begun!

Upgrading to new technology is a decision that most people don’t take lightly. They can’t – it can be expensive, time consuming, seem wasteful, and sometimes the improvements don’t seem large enough to really matter.

Here's the thing about upgrading to the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus: take a minute, and think about all the memories created with an iPhone, all the photos taken, text messages & emails sent and received, websites visited, games played, time wasted, time well spent, love & relationships built.

The effect mobile technology has on people's lives is massive, and it's all in that little shiny black (or rose gold) box. Take a look at the current iPhone release, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus both have very impressive features (more impressive on the iPhone 7 Plus).

They both feature a very nice camera, extra space for all the activities, new colors, water and dust resistance, the fastest iPhone with the longest battery life with the A10 Fusion chip, as well as a brighter screen and more colors.

For people that use their camera a lot and are not totally opposed to upgrading to a phablet, the iPhone 7 Plus is highly recommended. Especially if they haven't upgraded in a while, the seemingly small hardware improvements combined with the software improvements of iOS 10 will seem like a surprisingly huge improvement.

So, what state is the iPhone in? If it's used, cracked, water damaged, beer damaged, or just plain smashed, selling it and upgrading to the new iPhone is one way to declutter and improve life.

The important priorities when selling an iPhone are trust, value, security and ease of transaction.

Ryan Wallace, President of iPhone Antidote, believes that having a safe way to sell an old device is very important, “There’s a level of trust that our customers place in us for a safe, easy and beneficial transaction, and there’s nothing we would ever do to have them question that.”

Before selling an iPhone, these are the important factors to consider: Is the business trustworthy? Are they known for giving the quoted values on their devices? Will the data be secure? Will this take more time than it’s worth?

1) Look for a company’s Better Business Bureau ratings. Read their customer reviews. Make sure that the quote won’t be revised due to unclear levels of damage.

2) Another recommendation is to avoid using Craigslist unless meeting the buyer in a safe environment.

3) Put a dollar value on the old iPhone, and make sure to get it, aim to rave about the transaction.

4) Securely wipe the data from the iPhone before giving it to anyone or sending it to any company. Sign out of iCloud. Back up the iPhone. In Settings, choose “Erase All Content and Settings”. Erase.

5) Make sure that the time it takes to get a quote to sell the iPhone, mail it in a pre-paid box, and collect payment is worth the time it takes to get it done.

If there is a way to sell the iPhone that meets all these requisites, go for it. Upgrade to the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus.

Why not? Upgrade tech, upgrade life.
