Overseas powerfully getting cheaper "Like new" iPhone. And we have sadness

There is something strange about the restored iPhone.
Before the New Year, stores traditionally make discounts, including on the iPhone. Right now, all overseas resources about Apple trumpet only one thing: how much the officially restored iPhone has fallen in price. Prices for "Like new" iPhone abroad are really set to "delicious." But in Russia, there were practically no restored models on sale, although at the beginning of 2019 there were a lot of them.
What are the discounts abroad
The biggest discounts on refurbished iPhone in the USA. There, by Christmas and New Year, retailers have cut record prices for “Like New” iPhones. For example, “Like New” iPhone X began to be sold at Apple for $ 599 (about 37 thousand rubles), and at retailers for $ 470 (about 27 thousand rubles). Big discounts appeared on the restored iPhone 7 and iPhone 8.
True, there is one interesting point. In the official online store of Apple, only iPhone X remained on sale by the second half of December. The refurbished iPhone 8/8 Plus and iPhone XS / XS Max were completely disassembled. At the same time, new deliveries have not been observed for the second week.
In Russia there is only “Like new” iPhone 6s
A year ago in Russia, you could buy a lot of officially restored iPhone at nice prices. In official retail, “Like New” iPhone SEs, iPhone 7/7 Plus, iPhone 8/8 Plus, and even iPhone X were sold. Their price, of course, was not as low as in the US, but it still pleased consumers.
Now retailers only have “Like New” iPhone 6s with different memory sizes. For a model with 16 GB of memory, they ask only 16,990 rubles, for a version with 64 GB of memory – 21,990 rubles. The prices of the restored models are noticeably lower compared to the usual ones.
Why did almost all of the restored iPhone models stop selling in Russia? Apple does not comment on this. We can only assume, given the disappearance from the sale of most “Like new” models in the US, that Apple temporarily reduced activity in the production of refurbished iPhones. And one can only hope that in the future they will return to the Russian market, since their purchase allowed a decent save.
