Apparently, the launch of the iPad mini and of the improved fourth gen Retina iPad has sparked the attention of a lot of Apple fans. According to new information, the value of the current iPad model is declining fast, as iPad re-sales have reached the 700% threshold since the iPad mini event two days ago.
This is a pattern that has been spotted before. Each time Apple releases a new product into the world, the value of the previous generation device will start to drop. Therefore, MarketWatch advises customers who are thinking to sell their iPads to do it now, as the timing couldn’t be more favorable.
Popular choices for users, who are thinking of dumping their old gadget for a new one, are websites like Gazelle, Nextworth and Glyde. Glyde offers quite an interesting offer and might attract a lot of tech lovers looking to keep up with the latest novelties in the field. The website takes the used iPad and it pays you in return – guaranteed. Nevertheless, in all probability you would get a better price by listing the item yourself on websites like eBay or Amazon.
According to the MarketWatch report the most popular iPad destined for re-sell turns out to be the third-generation 32 GB Wi-Fi iPad on Gazelle. The website will offer between $250-$350 – depending on the capacity - for a tablet in perfect condition.
However if you purchased your third-generation iPad in the last 30 days, you should quickly head on to the Apple Store and get it exchange for a fourth generation one.
