Apple today began selling certified refurbished iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro models in the US for the first time since the devices launched in late 2020.

Refurbished iphone 12
In the US, only the refurbished 6.1-inch iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro models are currently available, with no iPhone 12 mini or iPhone 12 Pro Max models to choose from at the moment. A variety of colors and storage capacities are available for scheduled delivery or pickup at select Apple Store locations.

As usual, refurbished iPhones are discounted approximately 15 percent compared to equivalent new models. For example, the unlocked iPhone 12 with 64GB of storage is available for $619 through a refurbished Apple Store in the US, while Apple is currently selling the same model for $729 new.

All refurbished iPhone 12 models are unlocked and SIM free. All refurbished iPhones come with a new battery, a new outer shell, a new white box that includes all manuals and a USB-C to Lightning cable. All refurbished iPhones are covered by Apple’s standard one-year warranty and are eligible for AppleCare+ extended coverage.

Apple says its refurbished products have been meticulously tested and cleaned and, in our view, are virtually indistinguishable from brand-new Apple products.
