Now that you’ve got new Apple gear, get cash for your old stuff quickly and easily

Cash-for-iphone

Merry Christmas!

If you’ve been a good little boy or girl, Santa hopefully hooked you up with new iPads, iPhones and Macs.  That likely means that what you were using yesterday will be retired to a drawer. Don’t do that. There’s significant value left in that gear and we can help you get as much cash as possible for it.

At Trade-in.9to5mac.com, you can get top dollar for iPhones, iPads, iPods, Macs…even Apple Watches if that’s what you are after. Compared to cash back sites like Amazon, Gazelle and others, we’re consistently at or near the top in refund amount.  Cash comes via check in as little as 1 week.

Let’s face it, most old devices get put in a desk drawer and lose value every day they sit there. Give yourself a secondary Christmas gift by trading in that gear you just replaced now, while the iron is hot.

(And if you’ve got some broken stuff, head over to 9to5mac.ifixyouri.com to get your devices repaired.) Disclaimer

Square Cash adds convenient money transfer to Apple Watch

Apple Watch Square Cash

Cash, the iPhone app that lets you easily send money from your bank account to anyone with email or text messages or even just nearby with a smartphone, is out with a new version today that puts Square’s cashing sending app right on the Apple Watch. Square Cash highlights three uses for its first Apple Watch app:

• Send cash to your top contacts even faster.
• Quickly pay nearby people with a new contact-first interface.
• Easily approve requests with a single tap.

I use Square Cash occasionally to send money to family across the country (it’s free for friends and has a 1.9% fee on transactions for businesses) and I’ve always appreciated how simple it is to use when even my non-technical relatives can figure it out for sending or receiving money.

Setting up the Apple Watch app is similar to other apps on the platform: tapping the $ icon meant going back to the iPhone to ‘set required permissions’ which asked for access to contacts and Bluetooth. Aside from the initial setup requirement, the watch app is super simple too.

You send a list of contacts on the main screen, in my case people I’ve previously used Cash with, and tapping a contact shows a 6 amount options: $1, $2, $5, $10, $20, and $100. Don’t worry, sending money isn’t as easy as accidentally ordering something with Amazon’s Apple Watch app as there’s a confirmation button. Once you do confirm, Square Cash plays a delightful animation showing money raining down behind a message that the transfer was successful. The ability to respond to requests in one tap should be equally convenient.

You can find Square Cash for iPhone and now Apple Watch for free on the App Store.

Square’s Cash iOS app adds ‘Nearby Payments’ for sending money over Bluetooth

CashSquare-Cash-app-01, the app launched by payments company Square last year for personal money transfers, today updated with a new way to send money on iOS 8 over Bluetooth LE. The feature is called Nearby Payments and allows users to send and receive payments by using Bluetooth to find and connect with nearby users. That’s opposed to the previous methods the app already offered including sending payments via text message and email. In case you’re wondering why it’s iOS 8 only:

Square notes that users will be able to select preferences for nearby visibility to allow either everyone or only contacts to see their availability. Today’s update to version 2.1 also includes the ability to “Quickly approve or decline money requests with actionable push notifications.” 

The updated Cash app by Square is available for free on the App Store now.

Cook talks Apple TV, iMessage, innovation at shareholders meeting as all management proposals approved

This morning, Apple is holding its 2014 official shareholders meeting from its Infinite Loop campus in Cupertino, California. The proceedings are just beginning, and Apple executives are expected (per usual) to field questions from attending shareholders.

One of the orders of business at this meeting is voting to approve or reject both proposals from Apple’s management and shareholders. Bloomberg‘s Jon Erlichman reports that shareholders have rejected every proposal created by other shareholders while all proposals from Apple management have been approved…

The rejected shareholder proposals cover a Board Committee for Human Rights, Carl Icahn’s infamous (and recently withdrawn) share repurchase proposal, Proxy Access for Shareholders, and a report related to Company Membership and Involvement with Certain Trade Associations and Business Organizations.

Late last year, Apple recommended that shareholders vote against the Icahn and Board Committee for Human Rights proposals. Apple said that it “is committed to the highest standards of social responsibility and human rights wherever we do business.” The company added that its Board of Directors “is aware of no other company that does as much to safeguard and empower workers as the Company does today.”

Regarding Carl Icahn’s proposal, Apple CEO Tim Cook and CFO Peter Oppenheimer have been reluctant to taking Icahn’s suggestions. Instead, the company is moving carefully with its money by focusing on research and development, acquisitions, and future product pipelines.

During the meeting, Cook told shareholders that Apple made $1 billion in revenue (from both hardware and content sales) in 2013 from the Apple TV. This number led Cook to say “it’s a little more difficult to call it a hobby these days.” We previously reported that Apple is working on a successor to the current Apple TV that will expand both hardware and software capabilities. Earlier today, Apple started promoting the Apple TV with a $25 iTunes gift card offer. The promotion is active through the middle of next week.

Cook said that several billion iMessages are sent each day. Cook also stated 15 to 20 million FaceTime video calls are conducted each day.

CNBC video on the shareholder meeting (with notable comments from Cook):

Cook said research and development spending up 32% year-over-year, Apple is putting its money “where its mouth is.” Cook added that Apple bought 23 companies over the last 16 months and that Apple is not opposed to buying a bigger company if it is the “right fit.” Cook also talked about opportunities in new emerging markets. Cook said that Apple would have an announcement regarding its share buyback program within 60 days.

All of Apple’s board members were re-elected.

Live updates below from the shareholder meeting:

- Protests are occurring outside of Apple’s campus this morning:

- Apple says 40 billion iMessages and 15-20 million FaceTime calls are made daily:

- Apple TV made $1 billion revenue for Apple in 2013, per CEO Tim Cook.

- Tim Cook says Apple is “in it for the long term:”

- Tim Cook on Apple TV: “It’s a little more difficult to call it a hobby these days.” Indeed.

- The math on Apple TV units sold:

- Tim Cook on innovation at Apple:

- All directors re-elected:

Correction: Tim Cook’s comment previously reported that 40 billion iMessages sent was actually referring to notifications as clarified below.
