Thinking of upgrading? Here are the best ways to sell your current iPhone.

The iPhone 7 is coming!!


Said to be announced early-mid September, with pre-orders starting in the middle of the month,  NOW is the time to start thinking – are you going to upgrade?


Check out what’s coming with the new phone here. 


Do you currently have an iPhone that’s a bit cracked, water damaged, or just a bit old and stinky? Do you want to sell it in order to upgrade to a shiny new iPhone 7?


Here’s your best options:


1. eBay – Check out what iPhones are selling for in past transactions and sell it on eBay! Just make sure you’re aware of the seller fees – use this calculator to find out!


2. Craigslist – advertise on Craigslist and someone in your local area can make good use of your old iPhone. Best for used iPhones instead of broken/cracked iPhones, but worth a shot with those too. Just make sure you’re safe when organizing how to physically give the buyer the phone.


3. Donate your iPhone to a charity. This doesn’t help you upgrade, but it will help you feel all the good feels. We’d suggest Cellphones For Soldiers.


Cell Phones For Soldiers is a national nonprofit dedicated to serving troops and veterans with free communication services and emergency funding. Donations of newer or gently-used cell phones and tablets from all wireless carriers and brands are accepted. Each donated device valued at $5 will provide troops with an estimated 2.5 hours of FREE talk time.

5, Give it to someone you know that might like it and doesn’t have one of their own! Little sisters need iPhones too, you know.


6. You know how when you go for a run, you’re always scared of your iPhone falling out of it’s little protector sleeve and smashing? Well, once you get a fancy new iPhone, your old stinky one can be used as your iPod for when you exercise! Smash away, friend.

The iPhone 7 is coming SOON!

The iPhone 7 is coming!


How soon? Pretty soon, guys. Specifically, we’ve heard reports that the Apple Special Media Event will take place on Wednesday, September 7th, with pre-orders starting on September 9th and a public launch date on September 16th.


There are conflicting reports that it won’t happen until the 23rd, but we have a funny feeling in or bellies that it might be the earlier date.


Media invites for the event are expected to go out next week, so it’s not long now until we know!


Here’s what we can probably expect for the iPhone 7:


* No Headphone Jack


*Better water resistance


*New design for antenna bands


*Flush, sensitive home button.


*Duel lens Camera for iPhone 7 Plus


*Upgraded Processor.

iPhone 7 Rumors catching fire!

iPhone 7 is coming!


So what can we expect? With what feels like the most ferocious and threatening iPhone competitors rearing their heads this year, the iPhone 7 better have game!


Some have suggested that this year’s iPhone release will, in fact, be very similar to the iPhone 6 & 6s, and that next year is when all the fancy magic happens. Either way, here’s what we know. (As always, here is your grain of salt —> . )


The device may be made entirely of glass, instead of aluminum. The display will be OLED (yay) .


It’ll have a 3,100mAh battery, which is 12.5 per cent bigger than the iPhone 6S Plus.


The iPhone 7 will have a gold color option.


It’ll have a better taptic engine – meaning that 3D touch will be better and that there’ll be an improvement to the taptic feedback in the phone.


We may finally get wireless charging, and there may be no physical home button.


Water resistance, a better duel lens camera, and better battery life have all been thrown around, but they always are at this stage.


There will apparently be no 16GB option on the new device, with the phone instead being offered at a base 32GB.This also creates space for a 256GB option, because we all know how much we LOVE MORE SPACE!


We’re pretty sure that the device will have no headphone jack, and there may be the intorudction of a smart connecter, which, like on the iPad Pro, will provide a port for power and data transfer.


So there we go!! That’s what we know. Lots of folk out there are pretty convinced that Apple are moving to what they call a ‘tick tick tock’ cycle instead of a ‘tick tock’ cycle, which purely means that they won’t have major iPhone upgrades every year, and we’ll have to wait until 2017 to see some magic.


What do you think?





Another iPhone 7 rumor!

That’s right, kids, another year, another iPhone. This one should be an exciting new iPhone year though! It’s a no ‘s’ iPhone year! If we’re going on what has happened in the past, Apple updates their iPhones pretty incrementally in the S years, saving the bigger updates and changes for the other years. This is one of those years.


Welcome to iPhone 7 year. We think. Probably. Right? Right.


So we’ll start right off the bat with a nice little iPhone 7 rumor. Judging from the past, we’ll be seeing this bad boy in the Fall, and according to the rumor mill, it will be completely waterproof.


Cue gasps.


Now, these waterproof rumors have been around for years, predominantly because, well, smartphones are one of the most important physical things in a lot of people’s lives, and they’re not waterproof. Or beerproof. Or any liquidproof. And humans drop these important things specifically in liquid all the time.* 


There’s no real facts behind this rumor, but hey, who’s going to let that stop anyone? WATERPROOF IPHONE 7! YAYY!


* Have you dropped your iPhone in liquid? We want it please!!!! Head on over to and grab a quote to see how much $money$ we’ll pay you for that stinky wet iPhone!





New Headphone Jack?


It’s iPhone rumor time!


Yeah, we have a while yet, but there’s always a good time for an iPhone rumor! This time we’re looking at the possibility of the next iPhone (presumably the iPhone 7) losing the 3.5 mm headphone jack in order to slim the phone down by whole damn millimeter.


Ruh Roh. The rumor began with Macotakara, a Japanese Apple blog that has had some success with predictions in the past. The slimming down of the next iPhone has been in the rumor mill for a while now, but until now no-one had seriously mentioned the possible loss of the headphone jack.


And no, considering Apple just acquired Beats Music and released Apple Music, they’re are not going full dumb dumb and removing the ability to listen to music from your iPhone – they will supposedly be replacing it with a lightening connector, and possibly incorporating it into a multi-purpose USB-C port.


A USB-C port is 2.5 mm high, exactly a millimeter thinner than your standard audio jack.



People are up in arms about how Apple are going to disrupt the Headphone industry and makes every one stompy and mad and why do they have to change things just because they’re stupid Apple.. etc. etc.


Yeah, Apple do have a history of being early adaptors of new and better technologies, and sometimes being a part of that early adaption sucks because of… well.. adaptors. If this happens and you want to use your non-Apple headphones, then you might be SOL without an adaptor. OR we might be lucky and the only way people listen to music from their phones at the time of release is using bluetooth.


As always with these kinds of early rumors, we’ll just have to wait and see… Would you be stompy and mad if Apple got rid of the 3.5 headphone jack?
