While months of leaks and rumors have painted what appears to be a very extensive picture of what we can expect from Apple’s upcoming iPhone 6, nothing is certain until the next-generation iPhone is finally unveiled on stage early next month. Well, almost nothing is certain.

There are a few things we know beyond the shadow of a doubt, and one of them is the fact that there will be a massive influx of used smartphones being sold and traded in as people upgrade to the new iPhone 6. All those trade-ins inevitably drive used phone values down, but as it turns out, there is a simple way to guarantee that you get today’s higher value for your current smartphone even if you don’t trade it in until after the iPhone 6 debuts next month.

FROM EARLIER: New leak reveals iPhone 6’s release date

Used gadget buying service UpgradeSwap has announced a new offer that will help people on the fence lock in today’s smartphone trade-in prices while they decide whether or not to purchase a new iPhone 6.

Apple is expected to unveil at least one new iPhone model during a press conference on September 9th, and we can expect a flurry of used phones to hit the market shortly after. With UpgradeSwap’s new offer, however, you can lock in today’s trade-in value for your current phone, and then you have until November 3rd to send it in and collect your payment. That should give people plenty of time to secure a new iPhone 6, which is expected to be released on September 19th.

Of note, the offer applies to any smartphone you might currently own, not just iPhones.
