Can I refund an iPhone I bought from a friend ?

So my friend sold me his brand new iPhone 13 pro with 256gig for 2k. I realised today that an Apple store in my neighbourhood has the 1TB option available which I really want. I have the receipt.
Can I refund this?

I'm sorry if I'm missing something, but it would seem to me that you should request a refund from your friend.

The iPhone 13 Pro, 256gig in gray is only $1099 from Apple.

You paid $2k?

What are we missing here?

You won’t get the 2k refunded at the Apple Store but you will get a refund of what your friend paid for it, which is about 1099.

Probably best to get a refund from your friend and get the iPhone you want from the Apple Store

Yes, you can request a refund from your “friend”, but he or she doesn’t have to accept it.

In Australia the 256gig was $2k.

You should be fine at the Apple Store.
