Tips on How to Sell Your iPad

Are you thinking about selling your old iPad in order to get some money to put towards a newer model? If so, there are a lot of things you need to do in order to get the device ready for sale. One of the most popular ways to get new devices is to sell the old ones to lower the upgrade cost, especially for those who like to upgrade their devices frequently.

Where to Sell Your Old iPad

There are a few different options you can use when you want to sell your old iPad. You can sell it yourself, which can take a bit of time and effort, or you can sell it through a reseller, which will earn you less money. You have to decide which option is best for you. If you choose a reseller, here are some of the top options:

When to Sell Your iPad

Once you have decided on the best way to sell your old iPad, you need to figure out the best time to sell it. It is always best to try and sell the device just prior to Apple announcing a newer model. Once they make that announcement, there will be a lot of people wanting it, and they will also start selling, so the market will be thoroughly saturated.

This means that there will be a lot of devices out there, and you won’t be able to get as much money for yours as you could if you sell it a bit sooner.

Preparing the iPad for Sale

Before you sell your old iPad, you need to make sure that you get it ready to sell. This means that it needs to be cleaned, inside and out. Cleaning it inside simply means getting rid of all of your data.

You never know who is going to end up buying the device and you don’t want to end up becoming the victim of identity theft and fraud. Start out by backing up all of your data to iCloud, which can be done overnight as long as the device is plugged in. You should also do a manual backup, to make sure everything is completely up to date.

Next, you need to erase all of your personal data from the iPad. Once you are sure that all of your data has been backed up, it is time to erase photos, files, messages, passwords, personal information, etc. By doing this, the new owner can’t access your personal files.

Once you have cleaned up the files and erased everything, it is time to pretty up the iPad. It only takes a few minutes to wipe off any dirt, smudges, fingerprints, etc. from the outer casing so it looks nice and clean. Get right into all of the ports and grooves to get rid of as much dirt and grime as possible. You can use a bit of isopropyl alcohol to get at the tougher bits of dirt.

All that is left to do is to pack up everything you have, that can be included in the sale. The more you have, the more money you are going to make. It is really good if you happen to have the original packaging, because you will get more money for the device. Be sure to include the 30-pin Dock or Lightning cable that came with the device, along with the AC adapter.

By cleaning up the phone and having all of the accessories and packaging with it, you are going to get top dollar for your old iPad.

5 Reasons Why You Should Always Be Yourself

5 Reasons Why You Should Always Be Yourself

When it comes to being yourself, there can be a lot of pressure from the outside world as it tries to influence who you are. Living in a society that is constantly developing, it’s important for you to always be yourself from the inside out. When you deeply know yourself and the boundaries that you have set, you are more likely to experience a fulfilling and rewarding life. Without knowing yourself and establishing those boundaries, you can easily be pushed around and end up on a dirt path.

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it” – Matthew 7:13-14

You have the option of taking the path that is broad or taking the path that is narrow. You can either conform to what life wants you to be, or have the courage to remain true to yourself throughout the years. It’s definitely a challenge to have a strong sense of self when we are constantly getting distracted and being influenced by the media and society’s way of life. But if you want to reach your fullest potential in life, it all starts with being yourself.

Why should you always be yourself?

Because you will:

  1. Live in alignment with your values and beliefs. Being yourself is all about knowing what you believe in and the values that you live by. When you are not yourself, you will take on the values and beliefs of others. This is when you start conforming to other people’s expectations and way of thinking. When you know your values and why you do what you do, you will live according to your own values and beliefs.
  2. Establish your own identity. When you are able to have a solid foundation of being you, you are establishing your own sense of identity. No matter what happens in your life, you will always know who you are. There will be times where you may feel lost or distracted, but if you have your own identity you’ll be able to get back on the right path. Without establishing your own identity, you may easily conform and lose yourself.
  3. Build courage. It takes a great amount of courage when you decide to take the path that goes against the crowd. The reason why the majority of people take the broad path is because it’s easy. It’s easy to just follow the crowd. It’s more of a challenge when you stay true to yourself and establish your own identity. This challenge of always being yourself takes courage and inner strength. No matter what comes your way, you’ll know how to handle it.
  4. Establish boundaries. When you are always yourself, you know what your limits are and the boundaries that you have set for yourself. When people cross your boundaries, you will know. But if you don’t establish boundaries, people may very well walk all over you and take advantage of you. If you are always yourself and you establish boundaries, you are more likely to be aware when people start taking advantage of you. Create and establish your boundaries.
  5. Find focus and direction. When you are always yourself, you are more likely to have focus and direction in your life. Imagine someone who is constantly conforming to other people’s expectations. Do you think this person has focus and direction? I don’t think so. When you stay true to who you are, you are more likely to know the goals you want to accomplish and how to go about accomplishing them. You are able to stay focused and know which direction to take in order for you to accomplish your goals.

No matter what you experience in life, the only person that will always remain constant is you.
