The 2020 iPad Pro models have been officially discontinued by Apple, meaning supply and stock has been harder to get hold of. Luckily, there have been plenty of third-party retailers offering the models at discounted prices.
However, it’s always better to be safe when it comes to buying discounted models from third parties. Here at Reboxed, we’ve put together a guide of where to get the discontinued iPad Pro 2020 – and how to spot a dodgy retailer.
iPad Pro 2020 Specifications
Before you decide to just upgrade to the 2021 iPad Pro model, let’s go through what the discontinued 2020 model has to offer.
First of all, you’ll find that both models have a lot in common, including most of the key features that usually vary between models. The rear camera is the same set-up and the design is unchanged, to begin with.
The iPad Pro 2020 comes with a Liquid Retina display with full lamination and anti-reflection coating. It is also enabled with Face ID and a LiDAR scanner on the Ultra-Wide rear cameras. The TrueDepth front-facing camera comes fitted with Portrait mode, Portrait lighting, Retina Flash, Cinematic video stabilisation, and audio zoom.
Furthermore, it offers an all-day 10-hour battery life and four-speaker audio on top of compatibility with Magic keyboard and the Apple Pencil.
Buying discontinued? What to watch out for
When it comes to purchasing discontinued products, the concern arises because some third parties take malicious advantage of the market. With limited products available, some third-party retailers attempt to get away with selling poor-quality, damaged, or locked devices.
This is especially common on unmonitored selling platforms (including eBay and Facebook Marketplace) but is not uncommon among big-name retailers either.
Don’t let the fact that a product is discontinued deter you from choosing it as it’s typically the more affordable option compared to some of the newer models. Just make sure you thoroughly research any third-party site you purchase a device from.
Refurbished is the way to go
For affordable and trustworthy devices, refurbished is the decision to make. These services buy old devices from users and then clean and repair them to restore the device and sell it to new users.
