If you're eagerly awaiting the new iPhone, the time to sell your old one is now.
The trade-in value of an old iPhone typical drops sharply before the launch of a new one and Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 6 in just a couple weeks.
Right now, consumers can fetch up to $290 for a 16GB iPhone 5S in good condition. That price is expected to fall as we get closer to iPhone 6 launch day.
To get the most for your phone, shop around. Some websites will allow you to lock in a guaranteed price for an old phone now, and continue using it until you buy a new one.
