Apple Certified Refurbished store: iPhones

As of this writing, the store only has the 32GB iPhone 6s Plus available—it costs $469, which is $80 less than a new iPhone 6s Plus that Apple still sells. The 6s may be two years old, but it’s still a very good phone, and it’s at an attractive price.

Getting a refurbished Mac mini can be a really good deal. Apple hasn’t updated the Mac mini since 2014, and you’ll find an entry-level Refurbished Mac Mini 1.4GHz Dual-core Intel Core i5 for $419, which saves you $80 from the price of a brand-new entry-level Mac mini.

Apple Certified Refurbished store: Mac Pros

Mac ProApple

The Mac Pro hasn’t changed much since its release in 2013. Apple refreshed the line last April, but all it did was increase the number of cores used in each model. The lack of drastic changes means you can get a good deal on a refurbished model.
