“Up until now, Apple has never sold refurbished iPhones on its online store,” Jeff Benjamin reports for 9to5Mac.

“You could get a refurbished Mac, iPad, or even a niche device like an AirPort Extreme, but never an iPhone,” Benjamin reports. “Apple typically used its refurbished iPhone inventory as repair/replacements for or offloaded them to 3rd party resellers.

“Customers will find the iPhone 6s in 16 GB storage varieties for $449.00,” Benjamin reports. “The larger iPhone 6s Plus is being offered in two storage varieties: 16Gb and 64GB for $529 and $589, respectively.”
