TL;DR: As of June 23, you can get a refurbished Apple iPad Pro 9.7″ 32GB (WiFi) for just $225.99. That’s down 62% from its regular price of $599.
You can’t claim to be committed to a greener lifestyle and go out and buy every single new Apple product. You can, however, enjoy the feeling of a new-to-you gadget and keep your green mentality by buying refurbished. As a bonus, a refurbished product will cost you hundreds of dollars less than a new one.
This refurbished 9.7-inch iPad Pro from 2016, for instance, is on sale for just $225.99. Considering it originally retailed for $599 fresh off the shelf, that’s basically a steal. You’ll end up saving 62% and cutting your carbon footprint.
While obviously not equipped with all the latest tech upgrades (it is six years old, after all), it’s still a reliable and powerful iPad. And depending on what you’re planning on using it for, it could be exactly what you need. And since it’s not obsolete yet according to Apple, it’s still eligible for hardware service. This offers a little bit of peace of mind if you’re skeptical about buying refurbished.
This particular iPad Pro has 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, an Apple A9X processor, and a fully-laminated 9.7-inch LED-backlit display. There’s also a 1.2MP front-facing camera and a 12MP rear camera. It won’t compete with your iPhone 13, but should get the job done for FaceTime calls and snapping quick pics on the go. It’s also a WiFi-only model, so you can only browse the web and stream videos with an internet connection (no data). But that just means you don’t have to pay for a separate data plan, which is a win in our book.
Regularly $599, you can add a new-to-you iPad Pro to your stockpile of gadgets for only $225.99 for a limited time. It may have a few bumps and bruises from its previous life, but it’s rated to work as good as new.
