iPad mini refurbished deals
The deals you see above are usually from Apple resellers rather than Apple itself – Apple rarely reduces prices. Apple, however, sells reconditioned iPads in its refurbished store. So you can get a bargain.
The iPads in Apple’s refurbished store may be ex-display stock, or they may have been returned by Apple due to a fault, but they are now completely reconditioned and have a full year warranty. Unlike buying second hand. In the UK see this page and the US Refurb Store page is here.

Another place to look is BackMarket US and BackMarket UK, which sell refurbished Macs and other Apple products. Amazon also has a certified repair shop for Apple products, but we advise against buying any products older than five years – most of the products we see in Amazon’s repair shop because it is very old.
There is a huge niche market for the iPad Air. We recommend checking out these reputable retailers for iPad Air deals:
