Apple has started selling refurbished iPhone 13 series in the US, offering significant discounts on the latest iPhone models. This move comes a month after the company listed refurbished iPhone 13 units for sale in Europe.
Apple’s Certified Refurbished store is offering the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max with savings of up to $230, depending on the storage you choose. The 256GB variant of the iPhone 13 Pro is listed for $849, which is $150 less than its retail price. You can save $180 and $210 on the 512GB and 1TB variants, respectively. With the iPhone 13 Pro Max, you can save $200 on the 512GB model and $230 on the 1TB configuration.
It’s important to note that Apple is not currently selling refurbished iPhone 13 mini models in the US.
While the prices might seem appealing, it’s worth checking out third-party retailers and carriers for better deals on the iPhone 13 lineup.
Buying from Apple’s Certified Refurbished store has its benefits. The company ships all refurbished iPhones with a new battery and outer shell, making them almost brand new. Refurbished devices also come with Apple’s one-year standard warranty, which can be extended further using AppleCare. Refurbished iPhone 13 units will arrive in a white box bundled with all accessories and cables that you’d get inside a retail box.
It’s worth noting that the iPhone 13 is currently out of stock in the refurbished store. However, Apple restocks its refurbished store at least twice a week, so it’s worth checking back regularly.
Overall, purchasing a refurbished iPhone 13 from Apple’s Certified Refurbished store can be a great way to save money while still getting a device that’s almost brand new and backed by Apple’s warranty.
