How to Sell Your iPhone Safely

Siri has been uncooperative in giving clues about what's going to go down at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco later today. But if the past is any guide, Apple will reveal the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

Many iPhone fans are eager to sell their old phones and upgrade, before Apple has even revealed what its new iPhones will entail. If you're one of them, there's more to the process than just handing over your phone.

You're going to want to back up your current phone so that you don't lose everything in it. You'll also want to wipe the phone of all traces of you—and we don't mean cleaning it off with some Windex and calling it a day.

Privacy concerns abound with phones, from photos stored in iCloud to NSA spying, so clearing your phone of all data before you hand it over to its next owner is a must.
