iPad 2s are selling like hot cakes, and now the company has started to offer refurbished models. Earlier today, Apple begun offering refurbished iPad 2 models via its online store. Currently, no 16 GB models are available and the discounts are only at $50 off of pricing for brand-new units. Both colors are offered for both, and both carriers are offered for the two 3G models.
Models currently available in the U.S. online store include:
- 64 GB Wi-Fi: both colors ($649)
- 32 GB Wi-Fi + 3G: all four carrier/color combinations ($679)
- 64 GB Wi-Fi + 3G: all four carrier/color combinations ($779)
In addition, Apple offers the same return policy for refurbished iPads as brand-new units, and also includes new batteries and outer shells, according to MacRumors. All other components of the iPad 2 are cleaned and tested during the refurbishing process. Also, if something’s amiss, Apple will replace that particular component. According to Apple’s website, refurbished iPad 2s are currently shipping in 1-3 business days.
Last month, Apple begun offering refurbished original iPad models for $299. Availabilty of those models have been scarce due to customers taking advantage of the deep discounts.
