Apple starts sales of refurbished iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, at a very gentle discount
As if its iPhone product lineup wasn't diverse enough already, with the introduction of the new entrant iPhone X, and keeping the 6s in the mix, Apple recently started selling refurbished iPhone 7 and 7 Plus as well. These certified pre-owned handsets start at $499 for a basic 7, which is just $50 less than the brand new one, while it has passed all the necessary checks, and comes with a year of warranty.
Apple sells the refurbished 7 Plus with 128 GB storage for $689, or $70 lower than the $769 for a new unit. All refurbished units come unlocked, but we'll leave it to you to decide whether saving $50-$70 is worth it, certified or not. Here's the breakdown of Apple's refurbished units pricing, versus its own tags on the brand new units of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.
Bear in mind that Apple doesn't offer a refurbished iPhone 7 Plus with 256 GB of storage at the time of this writing, or new 7 and 7 Plus with the highest storage amounts any more, that is why there are no cell table entries for those. Any takers?
