Apple updates the certified refurbished store, offers lower prices for 2018 iPad Pro and MacBook Air

In light of the company launching brand new iPad Pro and new MacBook Air models, Apple has updated its certified refurbished storefront to offer even lower prices.

The deeper markdowns on the 2018 iPad Pro and the 2018 MacBook Air are now available in the refurbished storefront. That starts with the 11- and 12.9-inch iPad Pro from 2018. The discount is pretty significant. The Wi-Fi model with 64GB of built-in storage and the 11-inch display now starts at $549.00 — a price markdown from the original $699.00. The 1TB Wi-Fi-only option is priced at $1,019.00, down from the original $1,199.00.

Apple says the refurbished iPad Pro models come with a new white box, a new battery and a new outer shell, and will include all manuals and accessories. It also comes with the standard one-year warranty.

Next up is the 2018 MacBook Air. You can save $480 with this particular discount, with the 13.3-inch MacBook Air with a 1.1GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor priced at $719.00 — down from $1,199.00. Apple notes that certified refurbished models go through a rigorous testing process, and any defective pieces have been replaced. The refurbished model comes with the standard one-year warranty, and Apple’s 14-day return period is also available.
