iPhone 12 now on refurbished stores
Note that Apple's refurbished products are refined before being sold to the public. Hence, refurbished iPhones may have the original internals of the used model but Apple carries out necessary repairs, if required, and replace the battery along with a new outer shell, the latest version of iOS installed, and a one-year warranty applied. Apple also offers free delivery and free returns.
Apple is yet to bring its refurbished offerings to the Indian Apple Store Online. Currently, the most affordable iPhone that Apple sells via its stores is the new iPhone SE 2022; the new version gets the same A15 chip from the iPhone 13, bringing 5G connectivity. The new iPhone SE 2022 also gets more durable glass, improved battery life, and an updated rear camera tuning.
Outside of Apple's official stores, the previous generation iPhone SE 2020 is still the most affordable iPhone one can buy today. This is followed by the iPhone XR and the iPhone 11, both of which continue to sell as entry-level iPhone models. The iPhone 12 recently saw a lot of demand during the Flipkart sale a few months ago.
