Today, we are seeing that Apple is now selling the 2019 iPad Air and iPad Mini 5 in its refurbished store. You can view these by clicking here.
Note that both of these products are compatible with the Apple Pencil and that the 2019 iPad Air is compatible with an Apple Smart Keyboard too.
The refurbished store handles products a little differently than retailers like Best Buy that also sell refurbished Apple products. Products that come into Apple get a new battery and casing, making it so that it is hard to see how the product used to look before it came in.
Right now, there are a few different models and storage capacities to go around, as well as cellular options too for select models. Getting AppleCare+ on them will only cost $69 and that all of the products in Apple’s refurbished store will still have a one-year manufacturer warranty.
While this may seem like a good option for some, retailers like Best Buy, Target, Staples, Walmart and Amazon are all known to have sales on the iPad regularly, and those iPads are brand new out of the box. Not refurbished.
