Apple today began selling Certified Refurbished iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro models in the United States for the first time since the devices were released in late 2020.

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

As usual, refurbished iPhones are discounted by around 15% compared to equivalent new models. For example, an unlocked iPhone 12 with 64GB of storage is available for $619 from Apple’s refurbished store in the US, while Apple is currently selling the same model for $729 brand new.

Refurbished iPhone 12 models are all unlocked and SIM-free. All refurbished iPhones come with a new battery, a new outer shell, and 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 extended AppleCare+ coverage.

Apple claims that its refurbished products are thoroughly tested and cleaned and, in our opinion, are virtually indistinguishable from new Apple products.
