Apple recently began selling refurbished iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max models for the first time in the U.K., Germany, Italy and Spain, with a 15 percent price discount compared to the equivalent new models.
In addition, Apple’s U.S. website also has refurbished iPhone 13 models on its shelves, though they are not currently priced. Apple’s China website doesn’t have a refurbished iPhone 13 series on its shelves yet, and there hasn’t even been a category for refurbished iPhones.
Apple’s UK website and found that the iPhone 13 series refurbished is £100 – £230 cheaper than the original, which currently equates to about $836 – $1923 cheaper.
Apple says the refurbished iPhones are unlocked, SIM-free and come with new batteries, new cases and new boxes with USB-C to Lightning cables, as well as a one-year warranty and eligibility for Apple Care+ extended services. Apple says its refurbished products are thoroughly tested and cleaned, and in most cases, they are virtually indistinguishable from brand-new devices.
Apple first introduced the iPhone 13 line in September 2021 and still sells iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini. Apple is no longer selling the new high-end iPhone 13 Pro line, which is being replaced by the iPhone 14 Pro line.
