Apple is set to debut the iPhone 7 today. But before you get caught up in the possibility of that shiny new phone, you still have one thing to do: deal with the one in your hand. We just heard this smart tip recently, and it’s on our immediate to do list before upgrading to the new version…

Lock in your trade-in price now.

Did you know you can sell your phone now and lock in that price before actually having to hand over (or mail in) your device? A bunch of services will give you a trade-in price that’s valid anywhere from four days to a whole month.

This is important because as soon as that new model drops, the older versions’ values take a tumble, too. So take a few minutes and head over to one of these services and get the most for your mobile.

These sites were found using Flipsy, a service that’s the “blue book of iPhones” that compares buyback offers and can be used for non-Apple devices as well.
