The demand for Cupertino’s new devices has been astronomical, as usual. It was reported that 10 million iPhone 6 and 6 Pluses were sold within the first three days, and that the sales figures are reaching 20 million units as of this writing. Clearly demand is high, but it’s pretty rare that new iPhone customers didn’t have a phone to begin with; most of them are upgrading, and when an old device becomes unnecessary, some seek to sell it in order to recoup some of the cost from buying a new one.
eBay happens to have a pretty slick promotion going on right now, where they are confident you can get up to $200 more for your current device than you could elsewhere. As a matter of fact, they’re putting their money where their mouth is and you stand to receive a $100 coupon if your phone doesn’t sell, as long as it’s listed between September 1st and October 24. It’s called eBay For The Win, and you should totally check it out.
Meanwhile, as part of their promotional effort for this initiative, they’ve asked us to write two Tech Guides over the last few weeks. These are published on eBay and haven’t been getting the attention I think they deserve. One of them is a list of 4 iPhone Cases Worth Taking A Look At. Highlights include the perennial classic Mophie JuicePack Helium, as well as the quirkier Crossover X-Band Storage Case. The other guide is 4 iPhone Photography Accessories. It’s pretty amazing the kind of pics you can take, even with older generation iPhones. All the more so when decked out with things like the Kogeto Dot or the Olloclip 4-in-1 Lens Solution.
If you’re aything like me, you’re likely still waiting for your pre-ordered iPhone 6 to ship. It’s been three weeks since the launch, and I’m dying a little each day. But it’s nice to know that any day now, I’ll list my iPhone 5 on eBay and recoup some of the $600 being asked for an iPhone 6 Plus 128GB up here in Canada.
