Finally, Apple has begun selling refurbished iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max models in the UK, Germany, Italy, and Spain. It’s for the first time these refurbished iPhone 13 models are available in these countries through Apple’s online store as part of its Certified Refurbished program.
The refurbished iPhone 13 models are now available with prices discounted by 15% compared to the equivalent brand-new models. Please note that the standard iPhone 13 is not yet available refurbished.
Apple’s refurbished iPhone 13 models are unlocked, SIM-free, and come with a new battery, a new outer shell, genuine Apple part replacements, and a new box with a USB-C to Lightning cable. These devices ship with the original OS or a more recent version preinstalled, and also covered by Apple’s one-year limited warranty and are eligible for extended AppleCare+ coverage. Apple says they also perform full functional testing and thoroughly clean its refurbished products before shipping them out.
Apple first launched the iPhone 13 series in September. The company no longer sells new iPhone 13 Pro models, which were replaced by iPhone 14 Pro models.
As per the official website of Apple in the UK, the refurbished iPhone 13 series is 100-230 pounds cheaper than the brand-new model. Buyers will also be saving from €120 to €280 in Germany, Italy, and Spain, depending on the exact country and iPhone model. This is a pretty decent reduction but its worth mentioning that this deal largely depends on the state of the device. Apple also claims that users will not be able to differentiate between the certified refurbished iPhones and the brand-new devices in most cases. So, it sounds like a huge deal.

In addition, Apple’s US official website has also listed the refurbished iPhone 13 models, but they’re not yet available over there, and there is no price tag. That means the listing itself is a big proof that they will be available in the US in the coming days. The refurbished iPhone 13 models are yet to appear on Apple China’s and Apple India’s official websites.
