Great news for all the iPhone lovers out there! Now you can purchase refurbished iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus at a discounted rate from Apple’s official online store.

Though the refurbished units of iPhone 8 Plus are currently not in the stock, customers can now buy the iPhone 8 for just $499, $100 less than the current market price. The 64GB iPhone 8 is available in gold, silver, and space gray. However, its 256 GB model is not yet available on the online store.

Since these refurbished iPhones are repaired and tested by the company itself, they can be a cheaper yet reliable way to get your hands on your dream smartphone.

These iPhones were either given up by the users due to a defect or sold by them as they upgraded to the latest models, so they might not come with accessories and the original packaging.

The refurbished units may show signs of cosmetic damage, but they are freely shipped with a one-year warranty, a new battery, an outer shell, and a white box.

The iPhone 8 has been in the news since it got launched last year alongside iPhone X. Powered by the A11 Bionic chip, found in iPhone X as well, it remains a perfect choice for your potential smartphone despite the arrival of the latest iPhones this year.

Other than iPhones, customers can also buy other refurbished Apple products like MacBook, Mac Computers, iPads and iPods.

The iPhone 8 Plus is currently available in the market at $699 for its 64 GB model. Once its refurbished units are available at the online store, it is speculated to be sold at around $599, with a 14-16% discount.
