Unless you've been living in a cave somewhere, you're probably aware that Apple is holding a media event on Wednesday, presumably to announce the next iPhone -- and that means now is the time to cash in on your old model.
By now there's little doubt that a sixth-generation iPhone is just around the corner, so this is a great time to weigh your options for selling an older model and putting that cash toward Apple's latest and greatest -- and here are three of the best methods for doing just that.
Earlier this year, we wondered if the Galaxy S3 would stand a chance to outperform the iPhone 5. Well, the next-generation iPhone isn't out just yet -- but it appears the Galaxy S3 has dethroned the iPhone 4S in the U.S. market for the month of August. During a time when Samsung is still trying to make sure it can sell a number of its products in the States, this has to feel like something of a victory.
Recently, Google updated its globe-trotting Google Earth app to include 3D views of select major cities. Android users had already received the update a month prior, but now, certain iOS devices can fly around inside realistic cities, as well. Of course, Google isn't the only player in the mobile 3D map space; Apple is also touting a similar function with the new Maps app in the upcoming iOS 6. So, what are the differences?
If it's not yet clear that a new iPhone is coming soon, look no further than Sprint, who is following up its recent online-only $50 discount on the current iPhone 4S with yet another enticement to buy now.
With the rumor mill in high gear about a new iPhone announcement now less than a month away, it seems like odd timing for Apple to push out a new bumper color for the existing iPhone 4/4S, but at least this one is for a good cause.
Apple continues to roll out celebrity-powered television commercials for Siri, with the latest starring film director Martin Scorsese as he maneuvers the mean streets of New York in a taxi cab, with Siri helping guide the way.
If you're like us, you're tired of having the same iPhone case as everyone else on the bus. We've even seen people toting the same cases we've bought from Amazon! At least it's still likely that something you get from Etsy will be original. So, we've compiled our ten favorite Etsy finds, just for funsies. While only some of these cases come from true local artisans, they're all unique, artful, and, for the most part, reasonably priced.
Need to go on a pocket diet? The rubber Q Card iPhone 4/4S case from CM4 has a small, leather-like fabric pocket on the back, letting you carry your driver's license, credit card, and a couple of bills. Of course, when NFC technology makes its way to future phone models, you won't need to carry any cards. And a digital wallet has near-unlimited storage space, while the Q Card is too bulky if you carry more than two.
