Apple's 2019 iPhone lineup is official, and the devices offer some incentives for users to upgarde. For starters, the iPhones 11 Pro and Pro Max upgrade the lineup's camera specifications and bring a new processor with improved performance. However, their price tags are sufficient to put off a lot of users, but this is where trade-ins come in play. So, if you've got an older iPhone and are looking to upgrade this year, we've got just the guide for you. Take a look below for more details.

Of the offers listed above, the ones on Swappa, BankMyCell, Decluttr, Verizon, BuyBackWorld, Nextworth and Gazelle will leave you with cash proceeds.
