Apple's New Secret eBay Store is Selling Cheap Refurbished iPhones

By Ashley Feinberg on at

Just like the odd eBay storefront that popped up last year, a new site called Factory Outlet eBay Store is selling refurbished Apple products and, despite any official Apple branding, is almost definitely the result of a partnership between Apple and eBay.

And it's selling iPhones for cheap.

Apple's New Secret eBay Store Is Selling Cheap Refurbished iPhones

First discovered by Apple Insider, the store is stocking about half a dozen factory-restored, unlocked iPhone 5s for somewhere in the range of $450 (£262) and $500 (£292), which is nearly half off the original price. UK readers should note that the store is based in the US, and shipping the items from them will cost in the region of $40 (£23). While there's no official branding from Apple, it does look alarmingly similar to last year's store, but the real giveaway is the full Apple Warranty that comes with each. Who knows how long it will stick around this time, so get your cheap iPhone while you still can. [Apple Insider]
