All returned products are refurbished by Apple. This means they are sent to either their repair facilities in Texas and Tennessee or to their factories where the products were made abroad. They have a complete diagnostic done and any problems are repaired which includes cosmetic damage (even tiny scratches).
they can't resell it as new.... They get sent off to the factory.
Because you can only return an item once. How do you return something a 2nd time if it's already been returned?
For iPhone returns, you may return your undamaged iPhone with its included accessories within 14 days of purchase for a full refund. In the case of items returned with a gift receipt, Apple will offer you an Apple Store Gift Card equal to the purchase price of the gift, including tax and any other fees.
No, Apple does not repack returned iPhones and sell them as brand new. All returned phones are sent to an Apple Service Center to be wiped and tested. If a phone was returned because something was wrong it, the problem is fixed.
As it turns out, returned products -- even in brand new condition -- can end up in liquidation warehouses, like Palacci's. To be sure, Amazon, Target, and Walmart resell a portion of returned products themselves. Amazon, for instance, operates Amazon Warehouse -- a marketplace for used and refurbished products.
If you're returning or selling an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, then you should erase it before you do so. This will remove all personal information — passwords, Apple ID, everything — and you can return the unit to a factory-fresh state. Software-wise at least. You can't do anything about all those dents and scratches.
In order to return items to store shelves, they first need to be assessed and repackaged. Because of the cost that goes into that process, many retailers trash returned products, as doing so is generally cheaper than reselling them. All in all, a past survey found only 48% of returns can be resold at full price.
An employee sorts through a pile of returns and categorizes each item to eventually be sold to a reseller. To be sure, Amazon, Target, and Walmart resell a portion of returned products themselves. Amazon, for instance, operates Amazon Warehouse -- a marketplace for used and refurbished products.
In short: no. While Apple's happy to let third-party retailers discount its gear, you won't find any Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals at the Apple Store.
Returns put a lot of pressure on retailers: they demand extra warehouse space and employees to sort them, and they often can only be resold at marked down prices. All of this adds an expensive layer to the bottom lines, with returns costing UK retailers a whopping £60bn per year.
The basic rule here is that once a product is returned, it cannot be sold as new, even if the product was never used. So, any of these items may be lawfully sold as "refurbished" for a fraction of the cost of a new item.
In the US, selling used items as new is against the law and considered a criminal act. Those who fear lawsuits, sell customer returns to secondary markets or as open products.
It was a onetime trap. Itachi sealed a single use of Amaterasu inside Sasuke to protect him which unsealed the moment he saw Obito's Sharingan as programmed. A last ditch effort to kill him, as Obito said. We even see Sasuke's Sharingan morph into MS an image of Itachi's Mangekyou sort of appears.
This can speculate that Sasuke chose the name Sarada in honor of his late older brother. Shown in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4, Sarada is capable of infusing her weapons with Lightening Release chakra and use it in conjunction with her enhanced strength.
