    ASAP prices will tank they day the announce the iPhone 7 do not wait even 1 more Day. iPhones become worthless fast. I have an iPhone 5s 64GB mint condition no one wants it even for $100.

    My iPhone 6 16GB did sell for $450 right before the 6s came out. That was good.

    If this is your only phone I would say that your only option would be after you have the iPhone 7 in your hand.

    Sell it now. You can live without a phone until September.

    Yes. Almost immediately. Because it sold so quickly I had to dig my original iPhone out of a drawer and use that as my phone until the new one arrived.

    Sell it now or the optimum profit. And be phoneless for 2 months.

    Wow you should do a review on how the original iPhone performs now, 9 years after its birth!

    This being an Apple forum Some might cringe, but there are some extremely good deals on the nexus 5x right now, so even if you don't have a backup phone you can buy one for under $200 if you wait for the right deal. I just picked one up for $150 from a slickdeals link, though not for the same reasons. Say what you will about android (I happen to like it) but for $150 it's a solid performer and I almost wish o had gotten that for my son instead of the more expensive SE

    How does music work on the android phones? Can you use iTunes to put music on an android phone? How would I get all my music which is stored on iTunes on my Mac onto an android phone?

    It is, yeah. I think the 64gb has been on sale for about $250 though, and a 32gb option for about $220

    For something I didn't plan to make my daily driver I just couldn't justify the extra $70 (I found the 16gb for $150 at the time)

    You can't use iTunes but there are some applications that work similarly. I prefer the Drs and drop method, which you can do now that (for some time) Apple has removed their stupid DRM.

    I honestly don't locally store music much on any platform though, so I'm not exactly the guru here. To give you an idea, the last time I stored music locally was around the time iPhone 4 came to be. Yeah... Been a while lol

    I've been thinking about this too. Last year I sold my 6 plus a month before 6s plus came out. I bought a cheap motarola from CEX (god awful phone, terrible!) and wow did it seem like 6 months! So this year I managed to but a mint 5s to use when I sell my 6s plus, but.....the 6s plus that I have now has been the best phone I've ever had. I had some gripes with the 6 plus but this 6s plus is, to me, just perfect and I'm reluctant to let it go. I think I've the 7 is the same shape and size I'll hang on for a year. That said, I've never managed to hang on before! Always end up getting the latest iPhone. We'll see....

    I'd certainly sell it before the Apple KeyNote announcing the 7. Like the others mentioned, if you have a backup phone, you could sell it now if you wanted to.

    Fortunately I'm on the IUP so the only thing I have to decide is whether or not I'm going to upgrade to the 7 or stick with the 6s.

    i say you sell it within the next 2 weeks. there hasn't even been an announcement on when they might do the announcement yet so you're still good.
