Some good news for folks looking to shave a hundred bucks or so off an iPhone, while still getting all the benefits that going through Apple’s official channels entail. The company is now stocking refurbished iPhones through its online store — which was previously limited to iPads, Macs, Apple TVs and the like.
As one expects from Apple’s official offering, the prices aren’t as low as other second-hand retailers out there. Typical savings on a device is around the $80 to $110 mark. Also not surprising — the company has yet to stock the latest and greatest in the store — neither the SE or iPhone 7 are currently represented.
At present, the selection is limited to the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, with prices ranging from $449 for the 16GB 6s to $589 for the 64GB Plus, both savings of 15 percent off the full retail price. The price includes a one-year warranty from Apple and, one would expect, a little peace of mind.
