If you want to buy the iPhone cheaper, then you should move away from the official Apple Store and look for other reputable sources for cheaper smartphones. Sure, the current iPhone 7 (Plus) is not yet to be thrown after you with blatant discounts. But the iPhone 6 and 6S models as well as the iPhone SE are currently much cheaper from some providers than directly from Apple. In addition to new offers, there are also serious used services that you also have a right to return.
One way to buy the iPhone 6, iPhone 6S, iPhone SE or other iPhone models as well as other technology products from Apple and Co. at low prices is through the program Certified and refurbished from Amazon. In the linked article I have already shown you details about the used offer on the sales platform; together with a price list that was current at the time. The good thing about the second hand program from Amazon: You get a 1 year guarantee on the products, like a new Apple purchase;)
You can get Apple products such as the iPhone, iPad or iPod on the reBuy buying and selling platform. There, too, the technology is checked and, if necessary, upgraded before it goes on sale again. There is a comprehensive article on reBuy with experience in shopping on this page in this post. The prices shown for iPhone models can certainly be corrected downwards again.
I got the idea for this article because of the discount store real,- the iPhone SE with 32GB storage currently for 339€ skin out. Apple offers the same model on its shop page for € 479. The saving is therefore a full 140 €. In return, you can afford a cheap cell phone tariff and a protective cover. However, I don't know what the various claims will look like after the purchase. If you have problems within the one-year guarantee period, you can certainly go to the Apple Store. However, the discounter will not be able to answer specific questions or carry out repairs. With regard to the exchange, it will look poor in an emergency.
Since the above-mentioned discounter in particular is currently offering the iPhone SE cheaper, I would like to add a small, current comparison at this point. I took a look where you can get the iPhone SE with 64GB of storage at the cheapest price:
If you consider private purchases as a serious alternative because the price offered for the supposedly “perfectly functioning iPhone” is very low, then good luck! I would refrain from private sales via Ebay or Facebook groups with such a device. If you do not access the region and pick up the iPhone directly from the provider, but choose the post, then it can even happen that you get nothing for your money. Has happened to me with completely different products. And call on the lawyer for a ten? Nobody does either ...
September 2017 is just around the corner and with it the introduction of the iPhone 8, or "Apple Phone" as it could be called according to some rumors. There are already a lot of leaks, assumptions, rumors and supposed photos of the new Apple smartphone. Even the accidental, short-term release of the firmware for the Apple HomePod allegedly gave insight into the new iPhone. So do you prefer to wait for the iPhone 8 with iOS 11 and technical innovations or do you still want to get a "tried and tested" iPhone SE, 6S or 7 at a low price? And if you've already done this, where was it? Feel free to leave a comment!
