Good news if you’re looking to buy an iPad around now. Apple has started selling some refurb iPads in their online store. They only list the Wi-Fi models at the moment – and each of them is priced at $50 below the standard cost for a new model.
I know some people are put off by the idea of a refurbished model, but I think in some ways they’re a safer bet than a typical new model. My first iPhone back in ‘07 was a refurb and it’s still around (though no longer in use as a phone).
Here’s a little detail on how Apple handles their refurb models:
We test and certify all Apple refurbished products and include a 1-year warranty.
All refurbished iPad models also include a brand new battery and outer shell.
Apple’s page for these says supply is limited, so you may want to hurry if you’re on the lookout for a slightly discounted iPad. Check out the refurb deals here:
