Refurbished Apple products are some of the best deals in tech. They get a thorough checkup, all new components for anything that's damaged, and the same year of Apple Care as new products. And as of right now, there are none to be had. Zero. Zilch. Zip. How come?

It could just be a coincidence, but to not have any products in all three stores feels off, especially when it's happening around the world. We've got a few guesses about what's going on:

  • It's just a glitch, nothing to see here
  • There's an issue at the refurb centers that's holding up throughput
  • Apple is updating stock, or pricing structure, for everything
  • Apple is moving away from refurbished products (which wouldn't really make any sense)


We've reached out to Apple for comment, but haven't heard back yet. We'll let you know when we do, or when the stock of cheap Apple gadgets returns.
