Do you want to know about iStore Demo Units?

demo units

Are you thinking of getting a new iPad, iPhone or Mac, but your pocket is feeling a little emptier than usual? 

At iStore, we offer a ton of ways to get your hands on Apple products and one of them is by purchasing a demo unit. 


What is a demo unit you ask?

A demo unit is a product that has been used in-store for demonstration purposes. Sales consultants use these products to show the different features to customers.


There are a couple reasons why demo units are a great option:

-  They are more affordable than new units at 20% off the retail price.

-  They have barely been used so are almost like new.

-  They still carry a 1 year Apple warranty from date of purchase.


Demo units on iPhone, Mac and iPad are available at all iStores, although stock, specs and colours will vary across stores. We have made it easier for you find a demo unit that will work for you by listing them on our website. Browse through these three pages and click on the unit you’re interested in.  A window will pop up and display which iStore has the demo unit available.

The Factory Shops are located at the following iStores:

If none of the above stores are in your area, then we offer the option of having your product sent to the iStore nearest to you. To request this, send an email to [email protected].


What is the difference between demo units and brand new units?


The difference between demo units and sealed unit stock is:

-  The demo units packaging may be shop soiled, damaged or repackaged into different packaging

-  The demo unit has been used for demonstration purposes
