Online Exclusives

Shopping on lets you take advantage of exclusive features such as iPad engraving, Mac customization, and Certified Refurbished Products.

Engrave Your iPad or iPod touch

Make it your own — or a gift they’ll never forget — with free laser engraving. You can add a message to any new iPad, AirPods, iPod touch, or Apple Pencil (2nd generation). This service is only available online and is not offered on refurbished products.

After you select your iPad or iPod touch on, you can enter up to two lines of text. As you type, you’ll see an image that shows what your text will look like. The text will be engraved on the back of the product, near the top, just as it appears in the image. Please check spelling carefully.

You may be able to make changes to the engraved text or cancel your item if online Order Status indicates that it has “Not yet shipped.” See the Viewing & Changing Orders section of Shopping Help for details or go directly to online Order Status. You may wish to review our Sales and Refunds Policy.

Buy a Certified Refurbished Product

Apple is the exclusive provider of Apple Certified Refurbished Products and Clearance items.

Refurbished Products

Apple Certified Refurbished Products are pre-owned Apple products that undergo Apple's stringent refurbishment process prior to being offered for sale. While only some units are returned due to technical issues, every unit is evaluated to ensure it meets Apple's quality standards. We back these products with our standard one-year limited warranty. For extended coverage, you have the option of purchasing the AppleCare Protection Plan with any Apple Certified Refurbished product.

Refurbishment Process

Each Apple Certified Refurbished Product:

  • undergoes full functionality testing and any defective modules identified in testing are replaced.
  • Apple Watch and Apple Pencil devices that require replacement parts are not included in the Apple Certified Refurbished Program.
  • is put through a thorough cleaning process and inspection.
  • is repackaged (including appropriate manuals, cables, and new boxes).
  • includes either the Operating System originally shipped with the unit or, in some cases, a more recent version.
  • is placed into a Final QA inspection prior to being added to sellable refurbished stock.
  • is given a new refurbished part number and serial number.
  • is placed into a Final QA inspection prior to being added to sellable refurbished stock.
