Apple has officially started to sell refurbished 12.9-inch iPad Pro through its own online store. The company is offering up to 15 percent discount for the refurbished devices. The 32 GB WiFi variant is sold at 679 USD, which is 120 USD less than its cost price of 799 USD. This model is available in Silver, Gold and Space Grey color options. The 128 GB WiFi variant is offered at a discount of 140 USD and is available at similar color variants. It features a cost price of 949 USD and is being sold at 809 USD. The last variant available is the 128 GB WiFi + Cellular version which is selling for 919 USD. This is 160 USD less than its retail price of 1079 USD.
The 9.7-inch variant of the iPad Pro is still not available at the refurbished store. This is normal as the device just went on sale from March this year. While it may seem that the prices are higher than some of the discounted rates offered by third party sellers, these iPads come fully tested and certified by Apple. The company also provides a complete one-year warranty on the refurbished devices.
