Featured deals: Refurbished iPhones from $120 today
Woot’s headline sale today is all about Apple, with a wide variety of refurbished iPhones available for as low as $119.99. It’s difficult to find significant deals on iPhones without tethering yourself to a carrier contract so this might be your best chance to slash the Apple tax.
While the iPhone 12 is still a bit recent for this promotion, every previous generation is represented, from the iPhone 11 Pro Max down the to iPhone 7. There are different storage options available for each phone, and some are also available at a lower price depending on whether you only need GSM networks or want a fully unlocked phone.
Here are a few highlights from the rundown:
It’s always worth exercising caution with buying refurbished products, but Woot is a reputable outlet. These phones come from its Scratch and Dent section, meaning they may have cosmetic blemishes, but they’re tested to be in full working condition and come with a 90-day warranty.
The sale ends tonight, but the most popular models are likely to sell out way before then. Hit the widget below to check out the deals while you can, and even save on a previous-generation Apple watch while you’re there.

If you have to have the latest and greatest from Apple, the iPhone 12 family is the way to go. Each model packs the new A14 Bionic chip and up to 256GB of storage. You can even return to the days of the small flagship thanks to the all-new iPhone 12 Mini. Apple kept a similar rainbow of hues from last year’s models, so don’t be afraid to express yourself.

Just like the iPhone 11 family, you can also splurge for the larger, more powerful iPhone 12 Pro. This year, the 12 Pro matches the standard 12 in size, but it adds a third rear camera for the perfect shot. You can once again choose from plenty of colors, and the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max each pack the A14 Bionic chip on the inside.

The iPhone 11 is Apple’s 2019 take on an affordable flagship device, and it’s a solid pick for most people. It packs the company’s A13 Bionic chip and up to 256GB of storage. The iPhone 11 also offers a dual-camera setup — a feature that you used to have to go Pro to achieve. If you’re determined to have your phone match your other tech, the iPhone 11 is available in six unique colors.

For those of you who prefer larger phones or want a triple camera system, the iPhone 11 Pro is likely your best bet. Apple’s premium flagship comes in a 5.8-inch Pro model as well as a 6.5-inch Pro Max version. The iPhone 11 Pro not only adds a telephoto lens but it also upgrades from an LCD screen to an OLED so your pictures will look stunning before and after the snap.

iPhone SE deals
Apple brought the iPhone SE back in a big way. It not only packs the latest A13 Bionic chip, but the brand new iPhone SE starts at just $399. This budget-friendly iPhone ditches FaceID in favor of a physical fingerprint reader, and the classic chin-forehead makes its return.
While the iPhone SE has just one rear camera, it’s a powerful 12MP shooter. The front-facing camera has jumped from 1.3 to 7MP, a massive improvement over the original. It’s available in red, black, and white with up to 256GB of storage.

iPhone XS deals
The iPhone 12 family may be Apple’s latest and greatest, but the iPhone X family hasn’t shuffled off this mortal coil quite yet. An upgrade over the original iPhone X, the XS, and its siblings offer improvements across the board, notably in battery life. The iPhone XS relies on the aging A12 Bionic chip, but it retains a glass back for wireless charging and a dual-camera that’s built for portrait mode and other effects.
iPhone XR deals
When it comes down to it, the iPhone 11 pretty much came directly from the iPhone XR. The lower price, the bright colors, and the 6.1-inch screen are all similarities between the two phones. Of course, the iPhone XR runs on the older A12 Bionic chip and only has one rear camera, but it’ll save you a few hundred dollars.
iPhone X deals
For better or for worse, the iPhone X popularized the notch. Its influences can be seen on devices from nearly every manufacturer, and it can still be had today, albeit refurbished. The iPhone X was the first phone from Apple to rock FaceID, an OLED screen, and wireless charging.
If you’re on a very limited budget or you just have a yearning for some older iPhones, all hope is not lost. These devices may not have the specs to compete with the latest and greatest, but they’ll still work well for most purposes.
The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus can still be found renewed on sites like Decluttr and Amazon. Apple’s iPhone 8 preceded the iPhone X (sorry iPhone 9) and runs on the A11 Bionic chip. You won’t find a notch, but you can still use your fingerprint for security. Here are your best bets for both devices:
That just about wraps up our list of the best iPhone deals that can be had right now. Though if you’re looking for even more Apple products, you might want to check out these other resources:
