Earlier in October, Apple deputed their new iPad lineup as they introduced the iPad Air and the iPad Mini with Retina Display. The second generation iPad Mini features a 7.9 inch Retina display with a resolution of 2048×1536, a 64-bit A7 processor, M7 motion co-processor, and an upgraded 5-megapixel rear iSight camera. Apple also updated their flagship iPad with the iPad Air which includes many of the same features as the iPad Mini except it has a larger screen size and is 20 percent thinner and 28 percent lighter than the fourth-generation iPad.
Sell Your Old iPad and Upgrade
The Ipad Air is set to be available for purchase in stores on November 1st, and the iPad Mini later in November. Like the iPhone, as the launch date for a new iPad gets closer, the value of older iPads will begin to depreciate rather quickly. If you are planning to upgrade to a new iPad and want to get the most value from your old device, sell it sooner than later. Those trading in their iPad Mini 16GB Wifi may be able to upgrade to the new iPad mini for about half price if they trade it in now.
To get the most money back for your iPad, you should sell it on either eBay or Craigslist. However, you may be uncomfortable with the risks associated with selling an electronic device directly to another consumer. I am going to compare the top 5 buyback offers online. There are a large variety of mobile tablets and iPad generations, so I am going to evaluate the black iPad 4th Generation 32 GB WIFI edition. Believe it or not, your used iPad is worth a lot of money. If you don’t plan on using it anymore, why not sell it? Many of the buyback websites have announced that they are experiencing a surge of customers trading in their old iPads already.
Get the most money for your old iPad before trade-in values fall after the new models are available. Most of the buyback websites are offering consumers the opportunity to lock in their price for 30 days . Checkout a brief bio of each of the websites we will be comparing:
Amazon: Amazon offers Amazon gift cards in exchange for used iPads. Unlike some of the other services that offer price lock windows up to 50 days in some cases, Amazon will unfortunately force you to send in your iPad within 7 days. The good news is you’ll get your credit within two days of Amazon receiving your iPad.
