Earlier, refurbished Apple iPhones were only available through online retailers such as eBay. However, refurbished iPhones sold on eBay didn’t come with an official company warranty. Instead, they came with a seller warranty, which means you have to contact the seller in case you came across any issues with your device.
The iPhone-maker already sells refurbished MacBooks, iPads, Airport Extreme, and other accessories on its online store. However, this is the first time since 2007 the company is again selling refurbished iPhones. Back in 2007, during Steve Job’s heydays Apple began selling the refurbished iPhone 3G at its online store, for $100 less compared to the actual retail price for both 4GB and 8GB models.
To recall, Apple recently announced the latest 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro laptops at its ‘Hello event’ last month. The company claims its new MacBook Pro models are the thinnest MacBooks ever. One of the major changes they get — or rather don’t get is the lack of a traditional ‘fn’ or function key. Apple has made the fn key useless with its latest MacBook Pro models. Instead, they get a new TouchBar Screen for navigation, which is capable of many functions and even lets users authorize payments via Touch ID.
