You can now save almost $100 buying a refurbished iPhone 6 or refurbished iPhone 6 Plus from AT&T, but there is one catch that may turn off some buyers. You’ll need to buy an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus on the AT&T Next plan or off contract — there is no subsidized price option at this time.
Apple does not sell a refurbished iPhone 6 or refurbished iPhone 6 Plus at Apple Stores, but you can order from AT&T. These refurbished iPhone 6 deals are online only, so you cannot go to a local AT&T store either.
AT&T currently offers just about $100 off each iPhone 6 refurbished model and nearly $150 off the refurbished iPhone 6 Plus models. AT&T calls these Certified Like-New models.
Here’s what this means and what you can expect for a cheaper refurbished iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. Unlike most Apple refurbished items, there is less of a warranty here, so make sure you consider that before buying.
AT&T promises that this is a like new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. This means you will not get a bent iPhone 6 or see scratches on the glass or body. In fact, it should look exactly like a brand new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus when you take it out of the box. The box includes Apple EarPods with a remote control and inline microphone, a Lightning cable and a USB charger. This is exactly what you find in the box of a new iPhone.
The biggest difference is that this includes a 90 day warranty instead of a 1 year warranty. You can still buy iPhone 6 insurance through AT&T or a third-party. It is not clear if you can buy AppleCare+ on a refurbished iPhone 6 that did not come from Apple, but there is a good chance you will not be able to.
To save $100 or more, you’ll trade in that ability, but you can pick up an iPhone 6 warranty for about $99 for two years of coverage. You’ll spend your savings, but you’ll gain a warranty that covers accidental damage. There is a $75 deductible if you make a claim, but that’s still cheaper than buying a new iPhone 6 off contract while still paying for the broken one.
AT&T offers the refurbished iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in multiple colors and storage options from 16GB up to 128GB and includes gold, silver and space gray. If you need help, here’s which iPhone 6 color you should buy and why you shouldn’t buy a 16GB iPhone 6.

|iPhone 6 - 16GB||$649.00||$552.49||$18.42||$23.02||$27.63|
|iPhone 6 - 64GB||$749.00||$637.49||$21.25||$26.57||$31.88|
|iPhone 6 - 128GB||$849.00||$722.49||$24.09||$30.11||$36.13|
|iPhone 6 Plus - 16GB||$749.00||$637.49||$21.25||$26.57||$31.88|
|iPhone 6 Plus - 64GB||$849.00||$722.49||$24.09||$30.11||$36.13|
|iPhone 6 Plus - 128GB||$949.00||$807.49||$26.92||$33.65||$40.38|
The table above shows the potential for almost $150 in savings on a refurbished iPhone 6 Plus and close to $100 off the iPhone 6 refurbished models. With no option to buy these refurbished iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus phones on a contract you will need to pay for the phone monthly or all up front, but you can save.
The AT&T refurbished iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus deals come and go as stock changes, so if you don’t see any of the iPhone 6 model you want, check back in a few days as things will change.
Apple Leather iPhone 6 Cases
One of the most popular iPhone 6 cases is the leather iPhone 6 case from Apple. This case is one that you can find in any Apple Store on release day and is also listed with many carriers.
Apple designs the leather iPhone 6 case with premium leather in a small form factor that adds minimal bulk to the new iPhone. You can find the leather iPhone 6 case in five color options that match the white and black front of the iPhone 6.
Watch out if you buy the red iPhone 6 case as the leather model for the iPhone 5s wore very fast and looked dirty and grey soon after purchasing.
