PSA: Just got a new iPhone XR? Make some quick cash on old iPhones (+$10 bonus)

Just a quick reminder for those folks getting their iPhone XRs today. Sell your old iPhones (and Apple Watches, iPads, MacBooks, etc.) with our partner MyphonesUnlimited. We take the risk and legwork out of getting some quick cash for your device. Although we can’t beat selling direct on Swappa,  Craigslist or eBay which require uncertainty, we almost always pay more than competitor services like Gazelle.

Oh, if you sell in October with code 9to5Mac at checkout, you’ll get an additional $10. Have a good weekend!

Now that you’ve got new Apple gear, get cash for your old stuff quickly and easily

Merry Christmas!

If you’ve been a good little boy or girl, Santa hopefully hooked you up with new iPads, iPhones and Macs.  That likely means that what you were using yesterday will be retired to a drawer. Don’t do that. There’s significant value left in that gear and we can help you get as much cash as possible for it.

At Trade-in.9to5mac.com, you can get top dollar for iPhones, iPads, iPods, Macs…even Apple Watches if that’s what you are after. Compared to cash back sites like Amazon, Gazelle and others, we’re consistently at or near the top in refund amount.  Cash comes via check in as little as 1 week.

Let’s face it, most old devices get put in a desk drawer and lose value every day they sit there. Give yourself a secondary Christmas gift by trading in that gear you just replaced now, while the iron is hot.

(And if you’ve got some broken stuff, head over to 9to5mac.ifixyouri.com to get your devices repaired.) Disclaimer

Square’s Cash iOS app adds ‘Nearby Payments’ for sending money over Bluetooth

Cash, the app launched by payments company Square last year for personal money transfers, today updated with a new way to send money on iOS 8 over Bluetooth LE. The feature is called Nearby Payments and allows users to send and receive payments by using Bluetooth to find and connect with nearby users. That’s opposed to the previous methods the app already offered including sending payments via text message and email. In case you’re wondering why it’s iOS 8 only:

Square notes that users will be able to select preferences for nearby visibility to allow either everyone or only contacts to see their availability. Today’s update to version 2.1 also includes the ability to “Quickly approve or decline money requests with actionable push notifications.” 

The updated Cash app by Square is available for free on the App Store now.
