Apple Selling Refurbished iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus at Discount
Apple has added refurbished units of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus to its online store. Refurbished iPhones are given a new battery, a new outer shell, and are certified by Apple. They carry the same one-year factory warranty available to new iPhones, and can be protected via AppleCare. Savings varies between $50 and $70 off the cost of a comparable new iPhone 7. For example, the refurbished iPhone 7 (32 GB) costs $499 while a new one costs $549. iPhone 7 Plus buyers will save between $70 and $80 if they select a refurbished unit rather than a new one. The refurbished units are only available online. They are sold unlocked and SIM free.
