What to do before you
sell, give away, or trade in your
iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
Is it time to get a new iPhone, iPad or iPod? A lot of people love their iDevices and they can’t imagine living without them. Unfortunately, as with many pieces of technology, there comes a time when it’s no longer feasible to keep the old.
So you got a new iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. That’s great, but there are two things you may want to consider: moving your data to your new device, and removing your data from the old device.
First of all, do you want to transfer your information to your new device? I think most people would say yes. By doing this, you can just carry on right where you left off and have minimal interruption.
And secondly, if you’re planning to sell or give away your old device, you’ll want to see that it’s erased. The new owner doesn’t need to have access to any of your personal information.
