While rumors are swirling that Apple will release new products soon, you can get great deals on the latest iPad right now. Plus, this week you can save loads by buying refurbished, unlocked iPhones.

Refurb unlocked iPhone 6s 16GB GSM for $170

If you don’t mind an older phone, this Apple deal is for you. Bidallies via eBay is offering a refurbished, unlocked iPhone 6s 16GB for just $170 with free shipping. That’s the lowest price we’ve seen and the lowest price we could find today by $79. The phone is available in Rose Gold, Silver and Space Gray. It comes in good cosmetic condition but may suffer from a few scrapes and scratches as it is an older-gen phone.

iPad 9.7-inch 128GB Wi-Fi for $350

For those looking to purchase a new entry-level iPad ahead of the possible iPad Pro refresh — Best Buy has the iPad 9.7-inch 128GB Wi-Fi-only model for $350 with free shipping. That’s the best price today by $29. The tablet is available in Gold, Silver and Space Gray. The iPad offers a powerful A9 chip, 8MP camera, FaceTime HD camera, Touch ID, Apple Pay, Wi-Fi, all-day battery life and all the potential of more than a million apps on the App Store.

Refurb unlocked iPhone 7 32GB for $360

If the iPhone 6s mentioned above seems too old for you, and you’re willing to spend more, MyWit via eBay offers the refurbished unlocked iPhone 7 32GB for $360 with free shipping. That’s a $5 drop from last month and the lowest price we’ve seen. (It’s also $189 below the best price we could find for a new unit.) The phone comes in Black and Silver. Note: This phone does not include a SIM card, headphones, original box or warranty.

iPhone 6/6s wallet case with stand for $3

If you’re not looking to upgrade your phone, but want to upgrade your accessories, get the Abacus24-7 Folio Wallet and Case with Folding Stand for iPhone 6/6s for just $3 on Amazon. Originally $10, use coupon code “YEJHOVG3” to drop the price to $3 with free shipping for Prime members. That’s the lowest price we could find by about $10. This vegan leather wallet features an RFID-blocking flip cover, two credit card slots, ID slot, cash slot and integrated folding stand. This deal ends March 31.
