The iPhone and the World

 

No other product stirs up a storm like the iPhone. Love it or hate it, the iPhone made Apple one of the most profitable and most valuable companies today. Record breaking sales of their most recent iPhone have sent their profits through the roof. Rivalries intensified ever since Apple’s iPhone was introduced. Apple vs. Samsung, Apple vs. Android, you name it, Apple’s in it.

 

 

It all started when Apple first released the iPod, along with the iTunes. Everyone loved the iPod so much it became a cultural phenomenon. The iPod kept us glued to our earphones and as a result, we’ve seen plenty of people bumping into poles more often than ever. It even changed the music industry and how music is purchased.

 

 

After the iPod shook up the market, Apple set its sights on another market – telecommunications. The whole world thought that Apple moving into mobile phones was a crazy idea. Who would want to buy a telephone made by a company known for audio players and computers?

 

 

Needless to say, the iPhone, like the iPod, became a cultural phenomenon. People just can’t get enough of it. The first time the iPhone was released, people were so crazy about it. It was even hailed as the “Jesus Phone” thanks to the hype made by diehard Apple fans.

 

 

Aside from the iPod, Apple now has another product that never fails to find its way into our hands.

 

 

The iPhone was something the world hadn’t seen before – millions of people going crazy over a phone! Apple definitely put the “smart” in the smartphone. The world discovered that there’s more to a phone than just texting and calling.

 

 

Why is the iPhone so messianic anyway? Of course, all fingers point to the great design that’s in line with the look of other Apple products, and most importantly, the software that made the phone so revolutionary. It’s very easy to use and most of all, engaging.

 

 

How many people around the world bought the iPhone? Oh, just about 256 million people, and that includes you! That’s more iPhones than other countries! It’s even close to catching up with the population of the United States. With the release of the next iPhone, it’ll surely surpass that number!

 

 

It’s crazy to think you’d want to sell your iPhone for anything else, especially since the iPhone is a wonderful product. You get the whole deal when you buy the iPhone.

 

 

You know this is true. You get business and productivity apps, games, a wonderful camera, music player and a cell phone all wrapped in a nice package. Truly, the iPhone is a wonder to behold.

 

 

The iPhone and the Environment

 

 

However, the iPhone poses great risks to the environment. Impressive as it is, the iPhone certainly does not make Mother Nature happy. Imagine, with 256 million iPhones in the world, how many million iPhones out there have been tossed in the trash because they got wet or broken? Not to mention the number of perfectly good iPhones discarded just because newer generations were introduced. No one has an exact figure, but it’s estimated that more than 30 million iPhones were discarded for those reasons alone.

 

 

What does this have to do with the human race? One thing is for sure – there’s one new problem that’s been making a lot of headlines lately, and that is e–waste. It’s a short term for ‘electronic waste.’ Basically, electronic waste constitutes gadgets that run on electricity. That includes iPhones, monitors, computer parts, televisions, microwaves, refrigerators, and basically everything else that uses electricity.

 

 

Think about it. When you sell your iPhone it gets discarded along with other electronic devices. We’re basically drowning in a pile of scrap metal as time goes by. In the future, Earth will look like the Earth in Pixar’s Wall–E.

 

 

E–waste poses serious threats to the environment. They contain a variety of elements that are very dangerous when the device gets damaged. When the natural environment is exposed to these elements, it disrupts the ecosystem in its location, greatly damaging the soil, plants and water supply.

 

 

Here’s a short list of harmful elements commonly found in electronics:

 

  1. Lead
  2. Beryllium
  3. Arsenic
  4. Mercury
  5. Antimony
  6. Cadmium

 

Think about it. Not only are these elements found in the iPhone, but they’re found in virtually every other gadget out there, and thousands of devices get discarded each day. Imagine the impact on the environment!

 

 

The iPhone and the Human Body

 

 

So what do all of these fancy elements do to us anyway? Well, there are a wide variety of dangerous effects when being exposed to these elements.

 

 

Take a look for yourself:

 

 

  1. Lead

    Used in soldering to connect components to circuit boards, lead is very harmful. It can damage the nervous system, cause retardation, damage to the kidneys and can cause seizures.

  2. Arsenic

    You may have watched movies use arsenic to poison the hero. It’s true, arsenic is extremely poisonous. If it does not immediately cause death, other effects include heart disease, cancer and stroke.It is commonly found in semiconductors and IC’s of gadgets.

  3. Mercury

    Commonly found in monitors, and other internal components, this gooey silvery stuff is very hazardous. Depending on the degree of exposure, effects include memory loss and sensory impairment.

  4. Beryllium

    Commonly found in battery contacts and electrical connectors, this corrosive element presents harmful dangers when inhaled. It can cause beryllium poisoning, damaging the lungs and can cause lung cancer.

 

 

With all these elements, it’s scary to think that people are actually exposed to this stuff every day, and we interact with these things daily! What about the other elements with fancy names? Who knows what they can do to our body!

 

 

Your iPhone and What You Can Do

 

 

So what can you do to prevent all of these nasty elements from making their way into our ecosystem? Well, you can choose to send your iPhone to your local recycling center. There’s a much better way though – sell your iPhone to CashForiPhones. You’ll be hitting two birds with one stone here. Not only will you be recycling your iPhone, you’ll also get cash in return!

 

 

Wait, why do that in the first place?? Because the mobile phone is the most discarded type of e–waste. It’s easy to throw in the thrash and is easily replaceable. A cellular phone typically lasts a couple of years, while bigger devices such as computers tend to live longer.

 

 

If you have an old iPhone, CashForiPhones makes it easy for you because we offer the fastest and most reliable service. Best of all, we offer the best prices for any kind of iPhone in any condition.

 

 

Yes, you’ve read that right. We purchase iPhones in any condition– even if it’s broken!

 

 

Who knew that getting rid of devices would be so rewarding?

 

 

The Obstacle Course of Selling Online

 

 

At Cash for iPhones, we understand that transacting online is a taxing thing to do. When you sell your iPhone online, you have a multitude of options. You can go to online marketplaces, advertise on forums and other stuff like that.

 

 

There’s a sizeable amount of preparation when you sell your iPhone online. First, you have to take pictures to show authenticity. Another thing that you need to do is collect everything iPhone–related. You have to get the box, the cables, and the peripherals and take pictures of them too. Apple buyers are a very meticulous bunch, and they can be very demanding when it comes to authentic Apple products.

 

 

Now, when you’re done with that, you need to wait for a buyer! That can take days, or even weeks. Oh, and don’t forget that you have to price your iPhone accordingly. You don’t want to price your iPhone too high, because no one will buy it. You also don’t want to price your iPhone too low because you won’t make a profit.

 

 

Ah, and let’s not forget about those annoying hagglers. These people are time consumers. They always want to ask for such huge discounts that you might as well give it to them for free! These people really take the fun out of selling.

 

 

Finally, don’t forget that you have to meet with the buyer if you have agreed on that! You could be in danger. Places like Craigslist are notorious for criminals. You don’t want to transact in those places!

 

 

Who knew that selling something as simple as an iPhone online would be such a drag?
