If you are looking for an inexpensive iPhone that can get you the latest iOS and a ticket into the world of blue bubbles, do not miss this deal on an Amazon-renewed iPhone 8 64GB, now available for only $143. If you have a few extra shekels, grab the second-generation iPhone SE 64GB for just $164.
This smartphone is far from being the latest and greatest, but it is still a decent package for its price. It packs the beloved Home button, a reasonably-sized display, 64GB of storage, and the iOS 16-supported A11 processor. Besides, it is one of those iPhones you can service and repair yourself without much hassle or annoying software locks. The iPhone 8 will be a solid pick for those who need a second device or a relatively modern and inexpensive smartphone compatible with the latest iOS. Also, it has a 3D Touch display, a neat feature Apple ditched in the iPhone 11 lineup.
For just a few dollars extra, you can get a renewed iPhone SE 2020 with 64GB of storage, the A13 processor, slightly more RAM, and the same chassis/design/camera as in the iPhone 8. This smartphone is a better choice if you want a smartphone compatible with future major iOS releases.
