Ready to trade in your iPhone for the 6 or 6 Plus? Upgrading your iPhone is a process, and in the article, Trading in Your Old iPhone? 4 Things to Do Firstpublished on BusinessNewsDaily, author Sara Angeles offers a few important tips for making the shift.

Four tips:

1. Back up

Probably the most critical priority in upgrading your phone is to back up your old device before trading or selling it. Three of the simplest ways to back up your iPhone are:

  • via iCloud,
  • iTunes or
  • third-party cloud storage services.

2. Erase data

This is easy to do, through your iPhone’s settings. Before handing in your old iPhone, go to Settings-General-Reset and wipe your personal data clean, restoring the factory settings.

3. Check your carrier’s policies

With a myriad of companies offering trade in options, confusion can set in. Angeles cautions, “In addition to account-specific trade-in requirements, each carrier has its own policies regarding phone conditions and how devices qualify for trade-ins.

Before going to the store or placing an order online for an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, check each carrier’s trade-in policies to make sure your current iPhone meets that carrier’s requirements.”

4. “Shop around”

It’s worth it to spend a little time looking for the best deals. Here’s some good news: as a small business, you may qualify for service deals, such as cash-back programs and discounts on bundled business services.
