Does Apple sell refurbished iPhones in Canada?
Apple themselves do sell certain models as Certified Refurbished on their Canadian site under the appropriate section, however the iPhone 8 selection is often limited, so you may not find the correct capacity or color you’re looking for. As an alternative, Mobile Tech Lab almost always has all capacities and colors in stock for the iPhone 8 as it’s one of our most popular devices given the price point. Cost of an iPhone 8 also does not change based on your color preference. Similar to Apple, and unlike other third-party vendors we do back our devices with a one year warranty and lifetime IMEI guarantee, so you won’t run into any issues like you would if you purchased a random used price iPhone 8 model off Kijiji or Facebook marketplace.
Is it worth buying a refurbished iPhone 8?
In most cases you’ll find amazing savings versus retail when buying a refurbished iPhone 8 in the Canadian market. The word refurbished, or certified pre-owned is used a lot though, so it’s important to define what exactly it means. For devices sold by Mobile Tech Lab, we use the terms certified pre-owned as this allows us to both be transparent about it being a second hand iPhone 8 device, and also that we’ve not refurbished the device in any way, other than the battery if needed. We more so fully function test our devices to make sure they are ready to be enjoyed again and only replace the battery if it’s below 90% in iOS battery health.
Starting at $299, with the price trending downwards as new devices are released makes this one of the most popular second hand cheap iPhones for customers in Canada.
Are refurbished iPhones worth buying?
If you’re looking to upgrade from an iPhone 6 or 7, stay within a certain budget and don’t need the adrenaline rush of taking the plastic off a brand new Apple product, a refurbished iPhone is the perfect solution. Mobile Tech Lab locations allow for you to get the best value possible for your pre-existing device - whether its working or not - towards the cost of a newer iPhone or iPad. While many other vendors online in Canada may offer reconditioned or refurbished devices, we proudly stand behind all our phones with the same one year warranty that Apple offers.
Does Apple sell refurbished iPhone 8?
Apple has made a limited stock of Certified Refurbished iPhone 8 devices available online, however they are only available on the US site at $339USD which translates to about $419CAD. You may also be able to find them from carriers like Bell or Rogers in 2020 as $0 financed devices, but the more economical option would be to trade in an existing device - working or not - at a local Mobile Tech Lab location and put that credit towards a competitively priced iPhone 8. Most of our devices start at $299, and that’s before the trade in credit for any used device. In terms of pricing for that, you would have to give us a call @ 204-808-9416 but as a general rule we’ll always at the very least price match Rogers or Bell trade in value. Even if they claim to offer $0, we can do something better and get you a further discount on a refurbished iPhone 8 with a great battery.
What colors is the iPhone 8 available in?Colors available include Rose Gold, Silver, Product R(ed), as well as Space Grey.
