  8. Apple - Pre-Owned iPhone SE (2020) 64GB (Unlocked) - White - Front_Zoom

    Product Description

    We put the brains of iPhone 11 Pro in the body of iPhone SE. Everything feels fluid, whether you’re launching apps, playing the latest games, or exploring new ways to work and play with augmented reality. The advanced camera system with A13 Bionic brings you Portrait mode, which artfully blurs the background to put the focus on your subject — even when you’re taking selfies. 4K video means you’ll see four times more detail than in 1080p HD video. And extended dynamic range adds greater detail in highlights and shadows. Touch ID lets you securely unlock your iPhone and sign into apps instantly. You can even use it with Apple Pay to grab a coffee, get a yoga app, or shop for sneakers online. All without reaching for your credit card. Everything we make is designed to give you control over your information. All the iMessages you send are encrypted. Fingerprint data is stored on your device, never on Apple servers or in iCloud. Apple Pay doesn’t share your credit card number. iPhone SE is water resistant to 1 meter for 30 minutes. iPhone SE lets you watch up to 13 hours of video on a single charge. When you do need to power up, just set it down on a wireless charger. Or connect to an 18W fast-charge adapter to go from zero to up to 50 percent in 30 minutes.

How to Pick the Best Gifts for Teens

Teen Gift Ideas

How to find the perfect gifts for teens? That's a tough one. For starters, teens can be a bit fickle, but beyond that, what was totally cool yesterday can often be so uncool today. And, for all the same reasons, finding gifts for tweens can be even tougher. Luckily, whether it's a new smartphone, tablet, laptop or headphones, the latest electronics allow teens and tweens to express themselves and their individuality as they evolve — all without ever suffering the ultimate disgrace — that of coming off uncool.

Best Buy Has Gifts for Teens

To help you narrow it down and make your shopping easier, you can sort our teens' gifts list by category, including cell phones, iPad and tablets, laptops, TVs, wireless speakers and more. Plus, we're certain you want the assurance of knowing how other customers have rated the gifts you're thinking about, and what they've had to say about them. So, to find the best gift, you can shop by customer rating and read customer reviews. And, of course, you can always sort by brand or by price, to help you find budget-friendly gifts for teens and tweens.

With our huge selection of electronic tech for teens, finding a host of great gift ideas for teens just got a lot easier. But, with so many enticing gifts, the only tough part may be deciding which ones to pick. That's where the teen in your life comes in. You may want to get their opinion when it comes to zeroing in on the ideal gift. Or, if there's just too much to pick from, a Best Buy Gift Card, an iTunes gift card or gaming gift card could be the perfect way to let them find their favorite gifts on their own time.

Once you (or they) select the perfect present, think about how it will be used, and what accessories might make for an even better experience. For instance, if your gifts require batteries, or require charging, we've got a full selection of household batteries and battery packs to keep those devices powered up and ready to use. Lastly, you may want to consider Geek Squad protection for repair or replacement, to ensure those electronics keep running smoothly even after the manufacturer's warranty expires.

Plus, the beauty of shopping for the latest tech for teens is that regardless of whether you're shopping for gifts for teenage boys, teenage girls, young teens, older teens or even those tough-to-shop-for tweens, you won't even need to figure out what's cool in the way of bands, music, movies, or clothes in order to find the perfect gift. You select the smartphone, they decide what to text. You buy the headphones, they decide what to listen to. You buy the TV, they decide which movies to watch — with a little parental supervision, of course. The bottom line is, you're allowing them to express themselves without having to admit you don't know what's hot and what's not in their world.
