[Apple] 2nd Gen Apple Pencil Refurb $145 (save $24)

The Apple Pencil is never cheap and never goes on sale, so knowing that, this is a good deal if you need one (calling all those who snagged the 11” refurb Pro a month ago!)

If you don’t already know, Apple refurbished is good as new.

The 2nd gen pencil only works with the 11” and 12.9” iPad Pro that use Face ID (no home button)

Should probably tell everyone it’s refurbished in the title.

With that being said though, Apple Refurbs are excellent

Except original pencil won’t work with any of the ones that work with pencil 2

I've had horrible experiences with apple refurbs. Got scratches in mine years ago and I recently bought an ipad with more scratches. They say they replace the outer coveering but I think they only do it if it's too bad condition.

Don't forget that people bring these devices to places like the bathroom with them. Never again.

I did in the post. But I also updated the title now so it’s blatantly clear for people who don’t know what Apple refurbished is.

This is why I’ll ever buy personal electronics and accessories refurbished.

For those on the fence about Apple refurb:

I've purchased a few items from the Apple refurb store (iMac 27" 5K, Macbook Pro with Touch Bar, iPad Air), very satisfied with the savings vs. what I got.

I read somewhere in the T&C that the refurbished devices directly from Apple all come with a new casing (only parts like RAM, processor etc. are re-used), comes with the same 1 yr warranty as well.

If you do get unlucky and receive a unit that's scratched, I'm sure Apple will replace it with a brand new unit if you complain enough. Their customer service is top notch.

While some might say that they'll never buy personal electronics and accessories refurbished, I'll always buy APPLE refurbished products when available because of their guarantee (not like Best Buy where they just reset and put on the shelf).

Oh, I wasn’t aware of that. If that’s how Apple refurbished products are, then that’s pretty safe.

This has been my exact experience as well. I have never had an major issue with any Apple refurbs. Once a Mac I got had the smallest scratch in the corner and being ocd I contacted them and they replaced the entire outer shell to be brand new at the Apple store. Just being a pencil I doubt you’d find any scratches or signs of wear. And if you did, return it and continue to live your life!

You didn’t buy them from Apple then.

If you ever want the Apple pencil 2 with a slight discount you can go to their Education page at 159 instead of 169:

Code: Select all

I did, hence I said apple refurbs.

They do not replace the outer shell or it wouldn't have a scratch on it. But now the stores are closed so I"m SOL even after spending more than 4 hours on the phone and speaking with several managers. The best they can do is give a refund which si not what I want.

Everything I’ve purchased refurbished from the Apple.ca website has been pristine, brand new condition,

I would be shocked if anything arrived with even the slightest hint of being used, let alone scratched.

Bought a refurbished iPad Pro 11 (2018) and it was mint condition - like new.
