Apple began selling refurbished second-generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro models last month, just a few days after adding refurbished 10.5-inch iPad Pro models. This was brought to our attention today by Reddit user Chaseism, and we decided to share the news since it went unnoticed at the time.

Apple has steadily added various Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + Cellular configurations with 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB of storage since mid January, with prices reduced by around 15 percent compared to what Apple charges for brand new models. All three colors are available, including Space Gray, Silver, and Gold.

In the United States, for example, there are Wi-Fi models with 64GB of storage available for $679, a discount of $120. Wi-Fi models with 256GB and 512GB of storage are also in stock for $809 and $979, down from $949 and $1,149, respectively. Various other configurations are available, including in Canada.

Apple says its refurbished products are thoroughly inspected, tested, cleaned, and repackaged with a new white box and all manuals and accessories. Apple also installs a new battery and replaces the outer shell, making it nearly impossible to distinguish between a refurbished and brand new iPad Pro.

All refurbished iPad Pro models come with Apple's standard one-year warranty effective on the date the tablet is delivered. The warranty can be extended to up to two years from the original purchase date with AppleCare+ for iPad, at a cost of $99 in the United States and Canada for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

All in all, these deals provide customers with an opportunity to save between $120 and $170 off the second-generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro, originally released in June 2017. Keep in mind better deals are often available from resellers, so keep an eye on our Apple Deals roundup for the latest sales.

Apple also began selling refurbished iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models in the United States for the first time yesterday.

I highly recommend anyone that was about to buy a new Apple product to check to see if it is in their refurbished store.

I have purchased many Apple refurbished products, and they all have been problem free.

Other than the box that they come in, you would never know that they were refurbished. Inside the box, the refurbished devices have all the protective plastics that new ones have.

I wouldn't want to buy a refurb iPad with a battery of unknown health.
This is why I would never buy a used device from a third party. But Apple refurbs come with a brand new battery.

That's a decent recommendation. I'd go a step further and suggest people check for refurbs but before buying, check Microcenter. Depending on the model, they sell new cheaper than Apple refurb. Even if you have no Microcenter, BestBuy tends to price match Microcenter. The same iPad refurb Apple sells for $679, MC sells brand new for $649. For those who need the flashy packaging, it's hard to better. For those who want to save a few more bucks, ditto.

I highly recommend NOT buying refurbs. With a little patience, it is pretty easy to buy brand new units when the go on sale. I have been able to buy my Macbook Air, 12.9 iPad Pro, and iPad Mini 4... all brand new at Best buy for LESS than Apple sells refurbs. They regularly go on sale.

I wouldn't want to buy a refurb iPad with a battery of unknown health. Even with a 1 year warranty, unless the battery is way off the mark, Apple won't consider less than expected battery life to be an in-warranty replacement.

I agree. I have a refurbished 2016 MacBook Pro. I couldn't tell it wasn't brand new out of the box.
