In September, we gave you a quick look at five things you didn’t know about the iPhone. We loved hearing your responses to the interesting facts, from the history of the iOS icons to the total number of Apple patents. A few months later, we’re back giving you five MORE things you didn’t know about the iPhone.

Take a look at these Apple iPhone facts:
  1. As of September 2013, Apple has sold an estimated 387,446,000 iPhones. The USB cords packaged with those iPhones could reach from the Earth to the moon. Click to Tweet! 
  2. The iPhone 5 is faster than the desktop computers from 10 years ago. Click to Tweet!

5 Tech Things We’re Thankful for This Year Nov 20, 2013 | NextWorth

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and next Thursday we will reflect seriously about the people and events we’re truly thankful for in our lives.  However, in the meantime, let’s have a little fun with a list of the latest tech gadgets we’re thankful for this year. [caption id="attachment_2535" align="aligncenter" width="500" caption="Image via http://mashable.com "][/caption] Here at NextWorth, we’re thankful for…

  1. Apple having an announcement each fall, bringing us the latest mobile devices. This year, we’re exceptionally thankful the iPhone 5S and the iPad Air. Those devices are definitely on our holiday wish list.
  2. New gaming consoles with the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 available this holiday. Our game face is on to challenge friends and family to a little friendly competition.
  3. Unlocked smartphones and the flexibility they give us in our mobile lifestyle. Not only can we easily switch service providers, but also we can sell the device whenever we want and upgrade early.
  4. The ability to become proficient in smartphone photography. We have our smartphones with us more than our digital cameras, so it makes sense for us to learn the top tips and tricks.
  5. Upcycling! We love taking our tech items and transforming them into new pieces that can be used around the house. Our favorite upcycle is turning floppy disks into techie planters.
It’s not exactly tech-related, but we’re also thankful for a seamless rebranding experience to help our customers “Go Get It.” This slogan showcases that it’s not about NextWorth—or even the trade-in—it’s about enabling you for whatever comes next. While planning your holiday shopping list, make sure to use NextWorth to sell your electronics for the most cash. Need help planning the perfect Thanksgiving with family and friends?
