After reducing the price for the 4K and 5K LG UltraFine Displays, USB-C adapters and accessories, Apple is now treating customers with discounted products. The tech giant has already been selling refurbished Macs and iPads with the exception of iPhones. However, the iPhones 6S and iPhones 6S Plus are currently being sold in its online store at a lower price.
This is just in time for the upcoming Holidays. Apple is looking to capitalize on that.
Refurbished iPhones Are Now Available In Apple's Online Store
iPhone users will be pleased to know that refurbished iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus are now available in Apple's online store. This will be the first time the tech company is selling refurbished phones. According to 9to5Mac, customers can choose a refurbished iPhone 6S with 16GB of storage for $449.
An iPhone 6S Plus with 16GB and 64GB of storage will only cost $529 and $589, respectively. They are about 15 percent less than a brand new iPhone 6S or iPhone 6S Plus. They also come in all colors that include Silver, Space Gray, Gold and Rose Gold.
The refurbished phones will also have a one-year warranty, a new battery and outer shell, according to The Verge. Both the phones are unlocked and SIM-free.
Refurbished iPhones Were Relegated to eBay
9to5Mac further reports that Apple has kind of sold refurbished iPhones before. However, those were apparently relegated to an eBay store front. The company did not make it official. Technically, this is the first time Apple has actually offered them in its refurb online store. This move might have something to do with Apple's iPhone Upgrade Program.
If you are looking for a budget-friendly iPhone, you can purchase a refurbished one. Though they may not provide the same experience as the brand new ones, they are decent enough to use. According to MacRumors, all of these refurbished products are tested, certified and cleaned.
