Are refurbished iPhones good and should you buy one?

What is a refurbished iPhone?

A refurbished iPhone is a pre-loved iPhone that has been fully restored and brought up to date. The difference between a used iPhone and a refurbished iPhone is that used models have not been handled by a licensed refurbisher and can therefore contain apps that could be used to gain information. 

You don’t have to fear that with a refurbished model, as they are completely wiped with modernised software, including Apple’s own security protocols. Not only this but refurbished iPhones from Loop Mobile can give you the product you’re looking for at a fraction of the cost of a new phone.

Are refurbished iPhones good?

Refurbished iPhones aren’t just good, they’re great! They’re an easy and affordable way to access the world of Apple’s phones without destroying your bank account. Refurbished iPhones are secure and are brought up to current standards so that you can use a phone with new software but without the hefty price tag. There is a huge range of different iPhones with different specs so you can find the model that is right for you. With great support and so many options, the question isn’t whether a refurbished iPhone is good, but rather which refurbished iPhone is for you.

The benefits of a refurbished iPhone

As you will see below, refurbished iPhones are a fantastic option for economic, environmental, and quality reasons. In essence, 

  • a refurbished iPhone is a fraction of the cost of a new one 
  • buying one reduces tech waste
  • you can rest assured that your purchase is covered by a warranty.

Save money

Let’s get down to numbers. A new iPhone Pro Max can cost up to $2,369.00 AUD before any extras are added. At Loop Mobile prices start as low as $119.00, with equivalent iPhones to the Pro Max for under $1,000.00 AUD. 

That’s over 50% discount for a phone which has similar specs and up-to-date software. Loop Mobile also gives you the option of choosing the condition of the phone, so a phone with a small scratch, easily covered by a case, could save you even more. Financially, a refurbished iPhone is the smart choice for your next smartphone.


Environmentally friendly

In today’s world, tech waste, also called e-waste, is a huge problem. A study commissioned by the United Nations found that every year 44.7 million tonnes of e-waste is generated. Buying refurbished tech, such as an iPhone, is a great way to be a part of the solution. Rather than letting that perfectly good handset end up in landfill, you can buy it and give it a second life, easing the strain on our planet. 

If you’re thinking green, refurbished tech is an excellent way to turn thoughts into action.

Quality and warranty

One of the greatest concerns people have when looking for refurbished tech is whether they will receive a quality product. As Loop Mobile is a licensed refurbisher you can rest assured that they have the skills and qualifications to provide a refurbished iPhone of the highest quality. In fact, they guarantee that with a warranty on all products, so your purchase is covered. They also offer support if you’re adapting to a new operating system or encounter any difficulties, making the purchase of a refurbished iPhone from Loop Mobile risk-free.

Which refurbished iPhone should I buy?

All iPhone models have that sleek and iconic look, so the difference comes down to usage. There’s an iPhone for you. Whether you’re looking for something that will just handle your calls and a little internet browsing, or you need something that can store some videos for travelling, you’re sure to find the right iPhone here.

iPhone X

Refurbished iPhone X models come with either 64GB or 256GB of memory. They feature a 5.8-inch screen with Apple’s super retina display and a camera with a 12MP sensor. This iPhone X model also features an A11 Bionic chip, capable of performing 600 billion operations per second. That’s a lot of heft for a phone.

iPhone XR

Refurbished iPhone XRs are a step up from the X model, offering options of 64GB, 128GB, or 256GB of memory. The screen is larger, at 6.1 inches, and the XR offers facial recognition security. You can also access a variety of colours to make your phone more you.

iPhone XS

iPhone XS and XS Max are the high memory, high-tech options. With up to 512GB of memory, 5.8 inch or 6.5 inch screens, facial authentication, and a dual-camera system, this is a great model if you want a phone to last with as many apps as you can handle.

iPhone 11

The iPhone 11 offers all the same options as the iPhone XS, but then goes extra, with fantastic photo options, and 4K video. It’s the iPhone that will let you capture and keep your precious moments. You can even take this little beauty to the beach with its water-resistant casing.

iPhone 8

The elegant little sibling to the other models packs some punch for its size. Boasting a 12MP camera, retina display with true tone, and a glass back to enable wireless charging, it comes with 64GB or 256GB of memory and a stylish range of colours. All of this for a low price.
