There is a way to buy iPhones very cheaply on Amazon.
All you have to do is enter a keyword after “iPhone” when searching the store.
Just add “refurbished” and you get a long list of refurbished products iPhones.
These Apple phones are generally in “excellent” condition and come with their own renewed warranty.
So although they have been used before,
You can buy iPhones very cheaply – under £170 in some cases.
And while newer models cost more, there are still great bargains to be found at higher prices.
It’s possible to get a refreshed iPhone 7 for around £145, but The Sun doesn’t recommend it as it can’t upgrade to iOS 16 – and will unfortunately miss out on security updates as a result.
But the iPhone 8 – which can get the new iOS – is available for £164.99 (in Space Grey) and £168.96 (in Silver).
Both models are refurbished, but that’s usually not a bad thing – and can save you money.
According to Amazon, it is “fully functional and in excellent condition”.
That means it shows no signs of cosmetic damage visible from a distance of 30 cm.
And it has a battery that has at least 80% capacity compared to when it was new.
“This used product has been professionally inspected, tested and cleaned by qualified Amazon dealers.”
The accessories may not be original, but you get “compatible and fully functional”.
However, you may not receive the original packaging.
You also get a SIM card removal tool, charger and charging cable.
Amazon offers a full replacement or refund within a year of receiving the iPhone “if it doesn’t work as expected.”
The only other catch is that refurbished models are not guaranteed to be waterproof.
If you want a newer iPhone, Amazon also lists renewed versions of the iPhone 13, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR and iPhone X.
However, the renewed offerings change over time, so different models may appear at certain times of the year.
All you have to do is search “iPhone Renewed” to find refurbished models.
You can also search for a specific model if you have one in mind.
