Already, Amazon is a certified seller of refurbished Apple products. But Amazon shoppers up until now had to wade through a sea of third-party sellers in the hopes of finding authentic, new Apple products. Now, Apple will get in front of Amazon’s loyal customer base — including its more than 100 million Prime members — while Amazon gets first-party access to Apple’s high-end, covetable electronics.
