Apple kicks off refurbished iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max sales

Apple kicks off refurbished iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max sales
While Apple still sells the 2019-released 6.1-inch iPhone 11 in brand-new condition alongside the even older iPhone XR and 2020's iPhone 12, 12 mini, 12 Pro, 12 Pro Max, and second-gen SE, the higher-end 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max were predictably discontinued a few months ago.

Of course, the entire iPhone 11 family is available from a number of major third-party US retailers like Best Buy at slightly excessive prices, and starting today, Apple's official US e-store can also hook you up with a certified refurbished unit at a decent discount.

If you're thinking of picking up one of these unlocked bad boys with a new battery, outer shell, and white box included, as well as the same 1-year manufacturer warranty as an all-new "iDevice", you might want to do so as soon as possible. That's because quantities are almost always limited for new additions to Apple's US refurbished storefront at first.

The iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max don't look like exceptions to that rule, especially given how few storage variants and color options are up for grabs at the time of this writing. The non-Pro model, for instance, costs $549 in a single black hue with 128 gigs of digital hoarding room on deck, which represents a savings of exactly $100 compared to the list price of a new device of this sort.

The certified refurbished 5.8-inch iPhone 11 Pro, meanwhile, can be had at $849 in a 256GB storage configuration in your choice of Midnight Green or Space Gray paint jobs, which compares rather favorably to this handset's original $999 price.

Last but certainly not least, iPhone 11 Pro Max refurbs are on sale at up to $170 off the regular price of a brand-new unit, fetching $849 with 64 gigs of internal storage space and $929 in a 256GB variant, both of which can be purchased right now in gray or green. 

As always, it's probably wise to consider other refurbished or renewed options on the market before pulling the trigger here, although Amazon, for instance, can't help you maximize your savings even if you're willing to make do with a 90-day warranty.
