Apple Begins Selling Refurbished iPhones in Canada

Apple has begun selling iPhones on its Certified Refurbished online store in Canada, offering residents in the country a more affordable way to purchase iPhones from Apple online.

canada refurb iphones
Apple has been selling different refurbished iPhone models in the United States online since 2016. While Apple has long offered iPads and Macs in its Canadian refurbished store, this is the first time customers in the country have been able to benefit from the discounts that come with buying an Apple refurbished smartphone.

Previously, customers in Canada who wanted lower prices on iPhones had to wait for third-party deals or purchase refurbished/used devices from a third-party retailer, but with Apple's highly regarded refurbishment process now an option for iPhones too, this should come as a welcome development.

All of Apple's refurbished products, ‌iPhone‌ included, are tested, certified, cleaned, and guaranteed with a one-year warranty. iPhones also feature a brand new battery and a fresh outer shell, ensuring there are no scratches or other cosmetic damage.

Customers in Canada can currently choose from a variety of refurbished recent ‌iPhone‌ models in various finishes and capacities, including ‌iPhone‌ XS, XS Max, 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, with up to CAD$560 off the regular price currently on offer. With the iPhone 13 lineup about to drop into consumers' hands, expect iPhone 12 models to be included in Apple's refurbished listings soon.

(Thanks, Anthony!)

I live just south of the Canadian border in NH and have dozens of friends up there and we hang out seemingly all summer and sometimes in Winter (before COVID) so it is so bizarre to me when I hear Canada gets things like AppleCard, AppleTV+ and 24 month financing like years after USA. It doesn't really feel like a different country and I wish Apple treated Canada like USA. Heck, UK gets some things before Canada it seems.

I'm glad they're expanding that option over there. Apple refurbished is definitely a bit pricier than used or third party refurbed, but at least they throw in a new battery and case. And the theory is that you can rely on them doing a solid job of it. I'm looking for an 11 pro which I hope will last many years, so that's the way I may go.

Nice option for Canadians even if the price is a little high. Rather pay more from Apple than coordinating/dealing with Craigslist buyers. Those experiences are hit or miss sometimes. Also, I can't imagine the carriers happy about this since they lose an opportunity to get a customer on a higher cost plan.

Very first phone shown at the top is a Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus smh. Bring that or matte black back, Apple! Always teasing.
The Jet Black was an amazing finish. I treated my Plus carefully (it had a Cocoa silicone case protecting it) and I didn't find that it succumbed to the popular narrative of 'getting scratches just by looking at it'.

I'd love Apple to bring it back, maybe with a new coating. It would probably look great on the rumoured upcoming slab-style iPhone 14.
