Apple has started selling refurbished iPad mini 6 and M1 iPad Pro in its US online store for the first time, offering customers the chance to buy these products at a more affordable price compared to the official prices of brand-new devices.
The refurbished iPad mini 6 starts at $499 for the 64GB Wi-Fi model, but the same refurbished model costs $419, which is an $80 discount. Meanwhile, the Wi-Fi model with 256GB of storage costs $649, but the refurbished one costs $549. Currently, there are no refurbished Wi-Fi + Cellular models available in the store.
As for the M1 iPad Pro, discounts range from as low as $290, depending on the configuration. For instance, the 11-inch M2 iPad Pro with 128GB of storage costs $799, while the refurbished M1 model costs $639. The refurbished 12.9-inch model starts at $889, compared to $1099 for the M2 iPad Pro.
The iPad mini 6 was introduced in September 2021 and is still the latest iPad mini available. It boasts an 8.3-inch LCD display and Touch ID built into the Power button, powered by the same A15 Bionic chip as the iPhone 13. On the other hand, the M1 iPad Pro was released in April 2021 and was replaced by the M2 iPad Pro in October 2022. Despite some minor differences, both models are quite similar in hardware.
