Those who want to buy a new phone and an iPhone in particular are only waiting for the upcoming iPhone 6. With all this anticipation, they have probably forgotten about the iPhone 5 and the 5s which are very much available to be purchased. Well, it kind of makes sense that people want to wait for the newest model which is just around the corner. For those who won the previous gen iPhones can trade in their phones and now would be the perfect time to do so.
If you are taking your old iPhone 4 or 4s into the Apple store and you’ll get a chunk of money taken off your upgrade fee. The amount you get will obviously depend upon the handset which you have traded. Those packing an iPhone 4 can get up to $99 off a new handset, while iPhone 4s owners can expect up to $199 as part of the deal. Apple is showcasing this entire scenario in its advertisements which show that technically people would be getting their new iPhones for almost nothing.
It is not surprising to see why Apple would want to move as many 5 and 5s models as possible because it is not long before the iPhone 6 will make an appearance. Though it has been speculated that the iPhone 5s will not lose its current market to the release of iPhone 6.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
