What makes an iPhone refurbished?
A refurbished iPhone is an iPhone that the manufacturer or a trader has tested and repaired where necessary. It should come with a warranty, but it may not have the original packaging or accessories, and it might have some signs of cosmetic damage.
Do refurbished iPhones work well?
Yes – refurbished Apple products are 100% functional and all components in them work like new. From the screen of an iPhone, to the battery of an iPad, or the charger of an Apple Watch, refurbished Apple products will always have 100% of their parts in full working condition, like their brand-new counterparts do.
What is the difference between refurbished and original?
Refurbished phones are returned, damaged or broken phones that have been repaired and inspected. They are not saying, “Hey look, like Apple did, we tested every cable inside the phone and if it didnt work we put a new one in.” Instead, they have run the phone through functional testing with all the original parts.
How do I know if my Apple Watch is refurbished?
The only noticeable difference is the packaging; refurbished Apple products come in a plain white box with no branding or imagery.
Do refurbished iPhones have new batteries?
Refurbished iOS devices will come with new battery and outer shell. All Apple Certified Refurbished products are packaged in a brand new white box and will be sent to you with free shipping and returns.
