YOU can save hundreds of pounds with a clever iPhone trick.
When it comes to upgrading, you will often be tempted to buy a brand new iPhone.
But you could save a significant amount of money by purchasing a refurbished model from Apple instead of this.
A viral video on tick tock advocates doing just that.
The trick was shared by TikTok stars Steph & Denin a clip with almost 10,000 likes.
It shows how a major overhaul can save you hundreds of pounds or dollars iPhone.
You could now conjure up images of battery-powered cell phones that have been broken, abused and left dingy.
That couldn’t be further from the truth.
Apple has its own Certified Refurbished program that ships in like-new condition.
And it’s entirely possible that the iPhone was never used – it might just have been returned.
“You will receive a refurbished device that has been thoroughly cleaned and inspected with genuine Apple parts (if needed),” Apple says.
“Refurbished iOS devices come with a new battery and outer shell.
“Each device comes with all accessories, cables and operating systems.
“All Apple certified refurbished products are packaged in a brand new white box and shipped to you with free shipping and returns.”
Your purchase comes with a one-year warranty, and you can also buy AppleCare for it.
There is a selection of refurbished iPhones available in the Apple Store online.
You don’t necessarily have to buy the latest iPhone either.
In fact, you don’t even have to upgrade every two or three years.
Even models as old as the iPhone 6S – which came out in 2015 – can upgrade to Apple’s latest iOS 15.5.
And the iPhone 8 and newer can get this year’s iOS 16 update when it arrives in September.
With the right care and attention, you can easily keep your iPhone for four years.
Also, we live in an age of rampant e-waste, so it’s better for everyone if you can make better use of your devices.
And it will save you money too.
