Hi Lifehacker, After finally exhausting the useful life of my iPhone 4S, it’s time to upgrade. I’d like to buy a refurbished iPhone 5S from the US, where they are between half and two-thirds the price in Australia. As long as the phone is (carrier/ factory) unlocked, are there any compatibility issues I should be aware of? And is this a good idea to start with?
Still using a four digit passcode to lock your iPhone? You should probably change that to a complex passcode, thanks to a new hardware hack.
Apple’s new skinny MacBook costs essentially the same in Australia as the US, with the pricing matching closely when you factor in exchange rates and taxes. But the declining Australian dollar also means that if you want to buy a new iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, it will now cost a lot more than when the phone launched last September.
