How to Sell Your iPhone Safely

...

Fall is the time for Apple picking. On Sept. 7, Tim Cook is expected to show off the iPhone 7, with or without a headphone jack and a dual-lens camera system (and perhaps the Apple Watch 2 and new MacBook Pros). But if the apple of your eye is the new iPhone then you're probably going to be selling your old one.

Selling your phone can reduce the price of a new one or mean a bit of extra spending money, depending on how you look at it. But before you pack up your old iPhone and ship it out, you should know there's more to the process than just handing it over and waiting for cash to hit your bank account.

You're going to want to back up your current phone and wipe it of all traces of you. Privacy concerns abound with phones, from photos stored in iCloud to NSA spying, so clearing your phone of all data before you hand it over to its next owner is a must.

Check out the slideshow for a step-by-step guide to preparing your phone for sale and reputable sites that will take it off your hands for top dollar.
