If you’re in the market for a new iPhone and are looking to save a few bucks in the process, now might be a good time to pull the trigger. Earlier today, Apple began selling refurbished iPhone models on its U.S. online store for the first time.
For those unfamiliar, refurbished items are generally items that have either been returned or subject to repairs. That said, Apple ensures that ever refurbished item it sells is up to par with the company’s internal standards for quality and performance. Additionally, refurbished items from Apple come with a one-year warranty.
As it stands now, the only refurbished iPhone models available are of the iPhone 6s variety. Still, the savings are such that you might want to take a look at what’s available if you’re not married to the idea of having Apple’s latest and greatest. Specifically, you can pick up a 16GB iPhone 6s for $449, a 16GB iPhone 6s Plus for $529 and a 64GB iPhone 6s Plus for $589. Sure, you can get these devices for a lot less on sites like Craigslist or eBay, but sometimes it’s worth paying a bit extra for that warranty, a seamless return process, and in turn, peace of mind.
What’s more, each device comes with free shipping and free returns. Even better, the wait time for new orders is just about 2 days and all colors are available.
