I just saw a friend’s Facebook status: her family is getting rid of their iPads.
Sounds weird to me considering I still use my iPad mini to shoot videos, schedule social media and A.J. uses it to play some games.
But I guess if you’re more tech-savvy and have smart TVs or the newest smartphone, then iPads and devices can become obsolete.
So how do you get rid of an old iPad? Your loss could be someone else’s gain! Give it away, donate it or sell it to pay for an upgraded smartphone.
Selling anything in person can get tedious because you’re taking pictures, posting on Facebook groups or Craigslist, waiting for replies, negotiating and waiting for the buyer to pick it up.
