Costs start at $449
Apple appears to have opened another "factory outlet" storefront on eBay, in this case offering unlocked, refurbished GSM iPhone 5 models, notes AppleInsider. The page is similar to one launched last year that was selling products like refurbished iPads. Each phone is said to be officially inspected and include a one-year warranty, as well as a manual and charger.
Buyers can choose from 16, 32, and 64GB phones in black or white. 16GB models cost $449, while 32GB ones are $479; prices top out at $499.
Although Apple doesn't explicitly state its involvement, the language used and the similarity to last year's effort suggests that the storefront is official. The company is presumably hoping to clear out unused inventory ahead of new iPhones arriving in the fall. The iPhone 5 is no longer on sale through Apple's regular sales channels, having been replaced by the iPhone 5c and 5s.
