Refurbished iPhone 12 mini can now be purchased from Apple

You can now save $100 on the iPhone 12 mini by purchasing a refurbished model from Apple itself in the United States. The tech giant is now selling the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 on its Certified Refurbished Store which features Apple products that have been refurbished and are sold in excellent condition.

Other models from the iPhone 12 lineup like the iPhone 12 Pro were already available to purchase in the store. However, the iPhone 12 mini has been added for the first time. The tech giant will likely add more configurations of the model in the coming months, however, as of right now, only one is available.

The available model is the iPhone 12 mini with 128GB of storage in black. The iPhone retails for $679 while the refurbished model is available for $579, which is $100 less. Customers will also get Apple’s standard one-year limited warranty with the purchase of a refurbished product.

You will receive a refurbished device with genuine Apple replacement parts (as needed) that has been thoroughly cleaned and inspected. Refurbished iOS devices will come with new battery and outer shell. Every device will come with all accessories, cables and operating systems. All Apple Certified Refurbished products are packaged in a brand new white box and will be sent to you with free shipping and returns.

The iPhone 12 mini was launched in October 2020. Though there was a lot of excitement surrounding the device when it was announced, its initial sales were slow and they never really picked up. The 5.4-inch smartphone features a flat-edged design, a fast and efficient A14 chip, and 5G connectivity.

The refurbished versions of the iPhone 12 mini are available to order now with free shipping. You can also pay $8.00 for express shipping which reduces the shipping time to two days. In addition, the smartphone can also be picked up from a local Apple Store.

The lackluster sales of the iPhone 12 mini and even the iPhone 13 mini are attributed to the fact that consumers prefer buying bigger iPhones because of the larger screen and battery like the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro, etc.

The Cupertino tech giant is widely expected to drop the mini variant in this year’s iPhone 14 lineup in favor of a larger standard iPhone. This year’s lineup is expected to consist of the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
