    Good question, although with the gold iphone 5s I think that will be the most value asset to have come 2019. If you have that then you will live the rest of your life worry free and have the all time most collectable piece of apple technology in history.

    I think he is kidding. Things are collectable when there aren't many of them. Like big name key comic books from the 60s and 70s because they made a very limited number. People treated them like crap or threw them away. I have 20 copies of X-men #1 and Spiderman #1 from the 1990s..... they are worth less then the 90s price :)...... they made MILLONS of them and are easy to come by.

    They made millions of iphones and even then a collector will only want the 1st generation with a low serial number. These things just won't be collectable 10-15 years from now when we have chips in our heads that makes calls and has free wi-fi or w/e crazy thing comes out.

    If you have a 4s or a 5 just sell it for 250-450 now which is a lot more then you'll get in the future.

    Basically, the electronics of today is junk :)
    20 years from now, today's electronics won't have the appeal that today's
    vintage computing and electronics does. That's my prediction anyway.
