The latest generation of iPad mini (5) and iPad Air (3) are now sold refurbished on the American site of Apple. The two ranges are present only in the Wi-Fi versions, not on cell phones.
This is a good sign for a term availability on the equivalent French site, remains to be seen under what deadline. It could be a handful of days or weeks. As for the reductions, they are generally around 17%.
Since January 21, the US refurb is also selling iPhone XS and XS Max for the first time. We are still waiting for them here, not without curiosity. Because with the XS model in particular, it will face stiff price competition with the new offer.
