APPLE has a hidden page that lets you buy iPhones at discounted prices.
Normally when you go to the Apple website, you’re presented with options for full-price handsets.
But Apple also has a harder-to-find “refurbished” page where gadgets are heavily discounted.
Don’t let “refurbished” put you off: these are handsets restored by Apple in-house.
This “Certified Refurbished” program means that the products are “like new”.
They all go through a special process using genuine replacement parts, a thorough cleaning and inspection.
Any iOS device comes with a new battery and outer shell.
And you’ll get all the usual accessories and cables too.
They’re packaged in a brand-new white box and delivered with free shipping and returns.
Importantly, you also get the standard one-year warranty – with AppleCare also available.
It’s a much cheaper and more sensible way to buy an iPhone, or another Apple gadget.
Some of these products might barely have been used, and are restored to “like new” anyway.
So how much can you save? Here are UK and US iPhone prices.
But remember: you can get refurbished products in many of Apple’s most popular lines, including iPad, Mac and Apple Watch.
