Struggling to save up for that new iPhone? Amazon might have the answer for you with the UK rollout of its Certified Refurbished service.

The service, which is already available in the US and Germany, sees tech partners like Apple, Dell, Samsung and Microsoft refurbish pre-owned products to an 'as new' state, which will then be sold at a lower cost than the brand new version.

You can pick up a refurbished 16GB iPhone 6S for £450, for example, undercutting the standard Amazon price of £479. All refurbished products come with a 1-year warranty too, so you can be sure that they're in good working order.
