Finally, our dream of having an iPhone is going to become true as Apple has made the declaration that they are going to sell refurbished iPhones.
When I heard the news I literally jumped off my bed as not every day you come to know such exciting announcements from a reputed and sought-after brand like Apple.
I am sure that most of the people like me are outraged by the pricing of the iPhone series. But now our time has changed and buying an iPhone 6S and 6S Plus has become $80 to $110 cheaper.
In the case of other devices Apple has always sold refurbished ones but never offered iPhones. Then, why now?
Maybe it has to do with the iPhone Upgrade Program.
The iPhone Upgrade Program is introduced more than a year ago by Apple which allows consumers to buy new iPhones on a reasonable monthly plan from online Apple Store or retail stores and then replace it once a year.
Now nearly after the 1 year anniversary of the Program Apple has left out with a number of iPhone 6S and 6S Plus devices as the users have replaced them with the new upgrade and that is iPhone 7. So the left out models which are replaced by the new upgrades or the models which are defected and thus replaced by the users will be sold as refurbished ones.
Obviously, the defected ones will be fixed by Apple and then resold as refurbished ones.
Now, you may ask why buy a refurbished model?
Why not! Until you become capable of paying for the new model you can use a refurbished one. The handsets are not at all different from the new ones, except the fact they have previous owners.
Also, the refurbished models of iPhone can be availed in very reasonable rate. As an example, a new 64 GB storage capacity iPhone 6S Plus in Space Gray will cost you $699 but if you opt for a refurbished model then you can buy it in $110 lesser and that is of only $589.
The refurbished iPhone models like other Apple devices offered with a 1 year limited warranty and precisely tested to make sure they display the new condition from inside as well as outside. Also, you have the option to purchase an extension of AppleCare warranty for a device you are purchasing outright.
Altogether it will be a great deal for you. And anyway we are upgrade freaks and after 1 year you will again get mad for an upgraded version or a new model of iPhone that will launch with new features in the market.
So after 1 year we are actually not sure of our choices and what we are going to like next. Until then why not use a refurbished handset and fulfill the dream of having an Apple iPhone.
