If you are a consumer who is looking to pick up a new iPad Mini with Retina but are looking for a price cut, we have some good news for you. Apple has recently updated the Apple Store to confirm that refurbished iPad Mini with Retina tablets are now on sale.
A brand new factory iPad Mini with Retina costs $399 and some consumers believe that this is still too much. With this in mind, Apple has continued their tradition with refurbished models and now you can pick up a refurbished Retina iPad Mini for $339 – a 15% saving and $60 from the original price.
The obvious question that you are asking is what does refurbished status mean and how does it differ from the standard version. Apple’s website states the following for those that need further clarification:
“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.”
Refurbished iPads also come with all manuals and accessories that a new product would come with, including the same new packaged iPad box which we all know and love.
Many consumers have good things to say about Apple’s refurbished program, so we have a feeling that some of you may be interested in picking up the iPad Mini with Retina for $339.
At the time of writing, we can see that Apple once again has stock of the refurbished iPad Mini with Retina models. Initially, we could see that they were sold out so it’s fair to say that the demand is fairly high for them.
If you have bought a refurbished iPad from Apple in the past, let us know your experiences with the product. Did you encounter any problems once home, or do you recommend everyone to jump on this whilst stocks last?
