Help in choosing iPhone and iPad

  john bunyan 11:17 30 Apr 2020

My wife and I are used to, and prefer iPhones! She currently has a 5s and I a 6s. She uses hers for calls and a bit of browsing, photos and emails. I use mine similarly plus music. Both were bought used from an excellent local repair man. My wife also has a mk 4 iPad for browsing ; not keen on our laptop. I have had to get rid of all iTunes as on my 6s (16 gig) as about 15gig is used for system and apps.

I want a SIM free phone and was considering a used iPhone 8 at £300 (cheaper if from Amazon etc but not such good parts used). My expert suggested a new se at £415 from J Lewis with a 2 year guarantee. With 64 gig that seems interesting. My wife, for a while, would take over my 6s that is fine except for storage.

I can’t justify much more but the new se seems worth a look rather than a used 8. Any views?

Many thanks. Will backup those items on iCloud and also as belt and braces backup on iTunes also. Hope to do it this week sometime so will report back.
