Implications:

What you must do to earn this:

Keep in mind, however, that you would need to keep the old gadgets in their original packaging.

This can be like gold dust to collectors as it helps verify authenticity of the gadgets.

Also, don’t worry if your old gadget is broken.

You can still make huge cash from selling them.

All you need to do is fix them and then sell them.

Then go on eBay and have them sold to make your cool cash.

Meanwhile, if you have sold yours years ago when you upgraded, then know that you are out of the game.

Surely, you don’t have anything to sell.

So, if you must learn something now, it is that you must not always rush to sell your old Apple gadgets.

Also,  It might even be worth buying up some gadgets now and keeping them in boxes for a decade or two–you never know!
