Apple's latest iPhone tends to top our list of the best phones available each year, and its various Apple Watch models frequently feature on our list of best smartwatches. But enjoying the polished Apple experience comes at a premium, with Apple products often costing more than devices from competing brands. However, if you don't mind a preowned device, you can save a lot of money next time you buy an Apple product. Woot currently has a massive selection of refurbished Apple Watches and iPhones to choose from, which can save you a ton of cash compared to buying from Apple directly. 

The majority of the devices you'll find at this sale are listed as "Grade A" refurbs. According to Woot, that means that these items have been tested to be in full working condition and will show minimal signs of cosmetic wear and tear. Batteries are also tested to function at minimum 85% capacity.

If you want the most up-to-date model, today's sale features the current-gen iPhone 14 Plus for the first time, and it's actually listed as factory reconditioned, meaning it will be in pristine condition with a battery capacity of at least 95%. Only one configuration is offered, the 512GB model in black, but it's discounted to just $820, which is a far cry from this model's $1,199 price brand new. 

The previous-gen iPhone 13 is also included in the sale, with prices starting at $600. Considering Apple still sells this 256GB device from $799, it's a rare chance to save on a really recent model. If you want to spend a little less, the iPhone 12 is still an excellent phone that's more than sufficient for most people thanks to its 5G capabilities, OLED display and powerful A14 Bionic chip. It's a great value starting at just $360, which is over $200 less than buying new from Apple directly, or $290 for the iPhone 12 Mini. In our iPhone 14 review, CNET's Patrick Holland said there isn't a compelling reason to upgrade to the iPhone 14 from the iPhone 12, meaning this is still a great phone for a lot of folks today.

On the smartwatch side, the Apple Watch Series 7 from 2021 is the latest model, available from $240. Outside of the temperature sensor and crash detection features found on the Series 8, the older Series 7 has basically the same display, battery life, connectivity and features making it a solid option in 2023. The Apple Watch Series 6 is available for even less, as little as $190, and will still work great for the average user, or you can spend even less with a Series 4 model starting at just $130 -- ideal for someone just testing the waters with their first Apple Watch.

Cheaper devices like the iPhone SE and iPhone 8 start at $120 and the Apple Watch Series 3 is available from $95, but beware that support for future software updates isn't guaranteed and the Series 3 doesn't support the current WatchOS 9 update. 

Overall, these are some of the best-value Apple deals you'll find right now. These offers will end May 27, or when these refurbished models sell out, so we recommend acting sooner rather than later.
