If you want a refurbished iPad 8 that also supports cellular connectivity, that will set you back by $389, marking a $70 price cut for the 32GB version, and it is available in all of the aforementioned colors. To recap, the iPad 8 features a 10.2-inch IPS LCD screen, and it is essentially your gateway to experience the Apple ecosystem. It has decent specifications for its price, sporting an A12 Bionic, the same chipset fueling the 2018 iPhone lineup, along with 3GB of LPDDR4X RAM.

You can also get up to 10 hours of battery life on the iPad 8, and with the refurbished units, you can expect the same runtime. That is because Apple claims that all refurbished products are thoroughly inspected, tested, cleaned, and repackaged in a fresh box that comes with a brand new Lightning cable, power adapter, and user manuals. The refurbished iPad 8 will sport a new battery and outer shell, making it appear completely brand new.

You also get a one-year warranty from Apple. If you wish to extend this warranty period, you can opt for the AppleCare+ plan, in which you have to pay a one-time fee of $69, or $3.49 per month for 24 months in the U.S.
