Push, pull or drag it in: Verizon accepts AT&T iPhone trade-ins

trade inVerizon will reportedly offer customers the option of trading in their AT&T iPhones for credit toward the upcoming Verizon iPhone. According to MacRumors, Verizon sent out an email indicating that current AT&T users could grab a Verizon iPhone 4 by handing over their models. Here’s what AT&T iPhones can get you when Verizon opens its doors to Apple in February:

  • iPhone 2G, 16GB – $60 (towards Verizon iPhone 4)
  • iPhone 3G, 16GB – $105
  • iPhone 3GS, 32 GB – $160
  • iPhone 4, 16GB – $280
  • iPhone 4, 32GB – $360

For anyone planning on ditching AT&T in favor of Verizon anyway, this could make the process a little easier, versus attempting to sell the iPhone yourself. MacRumors thought it was possible the offer was available only to corporate customers, but a Verizon spokesperson told CNET that trade-in options aren’t exclusive. Credit comes in the form of a gift card and can only go toward purchasing an iPhone at full retail price, or toward a future wireless bill. So you won’t necessarily save that much money if you’re trading in your AT&T iPhone for a Verizon version, but you will be able to ditch your previous device easily. That is, only if you aren’t tempted by the promise of Apple bringing back its formerly expelled unlimited data plan.

I found a huge problem with the new ChatGPT iPhone app
ChatGPT app running on an iPhone.

Seemingly out of nowhere, OpenAI released its official ChatGPT iOS app this week. Available for both iPhones and iPads, the free app allows you to use the popular AI chatbot in a much simpler, easier way than ever before. No more messing with the mobile website or trying to fiddle with uncertain third-party apps — just download the official ChatGPT application, and you're good to go.

It's a big step forward to make ChatGPT more accessible and to get it into the hands of more people. Naturally, I was curious to test it out for myself. I've been using the ChatGPT iPhone app to ask the chatbot various questions, and while the whole thing works just like you'd expect, there's one big, glaring problem that makes me never want to touch the app again.

Let’s be clear, Apple — it’s time to make a transparent iPhone
Deep Purple iPhone 14 Pro with Beats Studio Buds+ in Transparent

Apple has released a new product that's gotten a lot of attention because of an awesome new color option. No, it’s not an iPhone, iPad, or even an Apple Watch. Heck, it’s not even the AirPods Pro 2. So, what am I talking about?

Apple acquired Beats by Dre in 2014, and this week, Beats dropped the new Beats Studio Buds+, which are pretty similar to the AirPods Pro 2, but cost less dough. And they come in one of the coolest colors I’ve seen in a long time: transparent.
