Refurbished iPad Air 2 Models Now Available From Apple Store

Apple today added several iPad Air 2 models to its online store for refurbished products, marking the first time refurbished versions of the iPad Air 2 have been made available for purchase.

Released in October of 2014, the iPad Air 2 features a slimmer body than the original iPad Air, plus a triple-core A8X processor, an 8-megapixel camera Touch ID, and a gapless display with an anti-reflective screen coating.

Apple is currently offering several refurbished iPad Air 2 models, ranging from the entry-level 16GB Wi-Fi only iPad Air 2 to the 128GB Wi-Fi + Cellular iPad Air 2. All models are discounted by 15 to 17 percent, dropping prices by $80 to $160. For the entry-level Wi-Fi only 16GB model, the discount lowers the price to $419 from the original $499 price tag.

That price point beats many sale prices from third-party vendors, and as with all of Apple's refurbished products, the iPad Air 2 models come with a full 1-year warranty, a new battery, and a new outer shell.

Apple's refurbished inventory fluctuates on a regular basis based on available supply, so models that are available today may not be available tomorrow. The refurbished iPad Air 2 models can be purchased immediately from the online store.

(Thanks, Phil!)

Interesting all these updates coming before WWDC. Makes me wonder if this keynote is just going to focus on OS X and iOS and have absolutely no hardware updates like they've done in the past.

I wonder if they are going to drop the 5th Gen iPod touch and introduce a 6th Gen? (Excites the dozen people who use iPod touches on this forum).

That seems as if it took a while.

Yep! 6 months!

Smart people always buy refurbished Macs, iPads and Apple TVs, and the 'S' model of the iPhones.

I guess I'm not smart. I got my air 2 brand new on Black Friday for $399.

- sorry for going off-topic

If you feel iPads are a technological advancement over x86/64 machines running OSX/Windows/Linux, I will not be able to convince you otherwise.

iPad's are a gimmick, and the declining sales numbers make my case. We have all invested so much into buying all those crappy simplified apps which should be web based anyways. Apple truly took us a step back instead of forward, it literally drove thousands upon thousands of potential brilliant developers to concentrate on fart apps instead of sophisticated/complex problem solving applications.

Peace

Right, because I'm sure the fart app guys are the best and brightest in the app developer world.

I love the iPad because I don't want the weight, heat, and limited battery life of a laptop. So tell me again why I should give a rats ass about your x86 machines.
