Get your free iPhone 5S at RadioShack

Starting today, RadioShack is offering a compelling promotion for those in the market for a new iPhone.

The electronics retailer is offering the iPhone 5S for free as long as you’re willing to trade in your old iPhone 4s.

As is the case with most promotions, you’ll have to commit to a two-year contract with AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon.

You can also purchase a 16 GB iPhone 5s for $99 without trading in your old iPhone.

This is a $100 discount compared to the standard iPhone 5s price of $199 on a two-year contract. The promotion was originally spotted by 9to5Mac before it was made public on Thursday.

RadioShack says that your iPhone 4s must be “eligible” for a trade-in, which means it’ll have to be in decent shape for the deal to apply. There’s no mention of how long the promotion will run, but it’s valid whether your shopping online or at one of RadioShack’s brick-and-mortar locations.

One secret iPhone feature you had no idea about

The iPhone is one of the best selling smartphones in the world. Nevertheless, there are some hidden features you had no idea your iPhone could do. I’m going to present you to one of these features today.

LOCATON-BASED REMINDERS

All of you know this odd situation when you set up a Reminder on your iPhone to pick something up from the store and this irritating notification pops up too early. When you finally have some time to go to the store you’ve already forgotten this notification which popped up earlier that day. This really gets on your nerves but believe it or not, your iPhone can help you with this using some extra settings in the built-in Reminders app. All you have to do is set up a Reminder as usual and then tap on the information icon next to the title of it. From this menu you can easily activate «Remind me at a location» by clicking on it. Your iPhone’s GPS will be used to get your current location and whenever you enter or leave a location specified with a reminder you will be notified. It’s a very powerful and useful feature that is perfect for people like me who are as forgetful as a goldfish.

What will the new iPhone 6 look like?

The next iPhone will boast a bigger screen, according to the tech rumor mill, and it’s expected to see the light of day very soon. Apple’s WWDC developer conference is right around the corner (June 2-6), but we’re expecting the iPhone 6 news to arrive sometime in September 2014, which is traditional of most Apple mobile device releases. But, you never know, Apple is certainly one for surprises.

What should you expect from the next-generation iOS smartphone? Probably something a lot like the iPhone 6 concept below, by Behance user Edgar Rios. It’s rumored to have slightly thinner hardware and a larger, wider screen. Read on for all of the iPhone 6 speculation around the web.
