Phonebot Refurbished iPhones

The Apple iPhone is super popular all around the world. When it first came out in 2007, everyone thought it was super cool and a game-changer. And guess what? It's just kept getting cooler every year. But all that awesomeness can be pretty expensive. Want to know how much? The newest iPhone 15 Pro Max costs a whopping $2,549! That's a lot, right? It means that many people can't afford to buy the latest model. But here's some good news: if you're in Australia, you can buy an Apple refurbished iPhone: at Phonebot, we've got a bunch of iPhones that don't cost an arm and a leg. You can find new ones, ones just tried out in stores (ex-demo), and even ones that were used gently but look and work like new (that's what refurbished means). So, you can still get a cool iPhone without emptying your piggy bank!

Understanding Refurbished iPhones

What exactly are these devices? Typically, they're gently used iPhones traded in at major Telcos like Vodafone, Telstra, and Optus during upgrade cycles. Contrary to misconceptions, these phones are far from faulty. A simple battery replacement or a clean-up is often all it takes to restore them to their former glory. They function as new, complete with OTA updates.

3rd Party Refurbished iPhones vs. Apple's Refurbished iPhones

Okay, so you might be wondering what the difference is between a 3rd party refurbished iPhone and one that Apple refurbishes itself. Let's clear that up! A refurbished iPhone usually means it’s had some sort of fix-up—like getting a new battery, a fresh back case, a new screen, or a shiny glass cover. These parts can be brand-name or just as good parts from other makers. Sometimes, an iPhone is called refurbished just because someone changed their mind and returned it, and the store reset the software to make it like new again without swapping out any parts. It's all clean, double-checked, and ready to go for the next person.


When Apple refurbishes an iPhone, they do it all by themselves and sell it in their shops and online. These iPhones look brand new, work perfectly, and have a complete and fresh battery. Generally, they come with a full Apple warranty and look precisely as new with a full battery. The only difference is that they're cheaper than the brand-new iPhones, and the only real difference is the more straightforward box they come in.


Choosing a 3rd party refurbished iPhone can be a good decision because 3rd parties are more concerned about their customers. Their support might be more effective than Apple itself; 3rd party refurbished iPhone also comes with up to 12 months of warranty, a "no worries" return policy if you change your mind, and seven days of customer support with free shipping. That is why buying from a reputable retailer you can trust is essential. Refurbished iPhones come in grades like A, B, Like New, and Open Box, and the cost can go up or down based on the model, grade, and storage space.

Specifications

The specs of a refurbished Apple iPhone vary according to the model you're opting for. The A17 Bionic chip powers the latest iPhone 15 Pro series, whereas Apple's A13 Bionic chipset powers the iPhone 11. The last few generations of Apple mobile phones have been some of the most impressive, debuting or perfecting cutting-edge technology such as Touch ID (fingerprint recognition), Face ID, dual-lens cameras, and more.

However, All this technological wizardry saw the already hefty RRP get even higher, but for those hoping to purchase their desired refurbished phone or tablet at a bargain, look at our huge range of unlocked mobile phones and tablets in Australia.

Benefits of Purchasing a Refurbished iPhone

Sustainability with Every Purchase at Phonebot

Phonebot is not just about providing affordable and quality technology but is committed to protecting our planet. Choosing professionally refurbished iPhones comes with more benefits than just saving money; that means you are making an eco-friendly decision that positively impacts the environment.

Why Refurbished iPhones are a Green Choice

  • Reducing E-Waste: Electronic waste is a growing environmental concern. By opting for second-hand iPhones, you're helping to reduce e-waste.
  • Energy Efficient: Refurbishing uses significantly less energy than producing a new phone, resulting in a lower carbon footprint.
  • Conserving Resources: The production of new smartphones requires metals, plastics, and other materials. By choosing refurbished, you're extending the life of existing devices and reducing the demand for new resources.

Your Contribution Matters - When you buy a refurbished iPhone from Phonebot, you join a community of environmentally conscious consumers; in just 2021, Phonebot has surrendered 35 tonnes of CO2 emissions.

Refurbished iPhones Available at Phonebot

At Phonebot, we provide a wide selection of refurbished iPhones to accommodate various budgets and preferences. With Apple constantly releasing iOS updates, you can still access some of the latest features available on the newest iPhone models, regardless of which model you own, as long as you regularly update your device.


If you're budget-conscious or have a soft spot for older models, our refurbished iPhone 6 is an excellent option. The iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 are also popular choices, offering some of the signature iPhone features at a lower cost than the newer models.


Older iPhone models featured a single front button with the Touch ID fingerprint sensor. However, since the introduction of the iPhone X Series in November 2017, newer models have adopted a new front screen design with Face ID facial recognition and gesture-based app switching. The iPhone SE Series still retains Touch ID, offering a more affordable alternative for those who don't require the latest cutting-edge features.


Other popular models include the iPhone 11 Series, which is no longer available for purchase from Apple. However, we have refurbished iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max models available at Phonebot.


iPhone 12 Series release in 2020 is also a dependable choice. The range includes the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max, all of which contain a variety of popular features and capabilities. With the release of newer models, the iPhone 12 series is now available at a more affordable price point.


The iPhone 13 series, released in 2021, introduced upgrades in processing power, camera quality, and battery life compared to the iPhone 12. The range includes the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max.


The iPhone 14 Series was released in 2022. The range includes the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Pro Max, and the iPhone 14 Plus. With the release of the iPhone 15, now is the perfect time to get your hands on an iPhone 14 at a fraction of the cost of a brand-new model.


Apple's latest release, the iPhone 15 series, boasts some of the most advanced features and technology available in the market. Although it may come at a premium price, this range includes iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Pro Max, and iPhone 15 Plus offer unparalleled performance and capabilities.


Phonebot, as usual, strives to offer the latest iPhone models as soon as possible, including the iPhone 15 series. However, we understand that not everyone needs the latest and greatest model. We encourage you to compare our reconditioned iPhones to determine which model best suits your needs and budget.

Phonebot's 72 Points Checklist

Phonebot follows a rigorous 72-point checklist to ensure every refurbished iPhone meets our high standards; our comprehensive checklist covers everything from inspecting its aesthetic condition to testing its hardware functionality, software condition, connectivity, touchscreen responsiveness to the functionality of the biometric sensors, clarity of camera, and health of battery.


We perform software diagnostics to check for hardware issues and ensure the device runs an official or supported version of its operating system.

Battery Health of Refurbished Apple iPhones

Battery health is one of the biggest concerns in used iPhones, and Phonebot has covered this with a battery health warranty


Each device Phonebot sells has at least 80% battery health and meets Apple's stringent OEM guidelines, ensuring longevity and reliability. Plus, all of our refurbished devices come with up to 12 months of warranty, and we also offer additional extended warranty options.

Apple Refurbished Devices – Worth Buying in 2024?

Absolutely! There has never been a better time to buy refurbished Apple devices like the Macbook Pro, Apple AirPods, Apple iPhone SE, or Apple Watch Series 1 - 8 in 2024 as a gift or for personal use. They have the same features and functionality as the original device, whether a MacBook Air, iMac, Apple Watch, Apple iPad (iPad Pro, iPad Air, iPad Mini), or iPhone, without the price tag. Even though they're not brand-new, refurbished Apple iPhones are still a great deal, especially when you stack them up against some of the cheap Android phones. Why? Because they keep their value for a long time and don't fall apart quickly. They're a smart choice if you don't want to empty your wallet on a super pricey new phone but still want all the cool features. 

What Else You Need to Know Before Purchasing a Refurbished Apple iPhone?

Some of the devices might have parts replaced as per OEM guidelines or returned under a change-of-mind return policy. Still, when you buy a refurbished device from a reseller, it'll have an adequate warranty, will come packaged inside a box with a charger cable & accompany after-sales support just like purchasing a brand new one straight from the Apple store.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do refurbished iPhones last?
Refurbished iPhones can last just as long as new ones if reconditioned properly. A well-refurbished iPhone, handled with the same care as a new one, might work perfectly for several years. Many factors affect longevity, like battery health and how the phone was refurbished. With regular software updates from Apple, even older iPhones remain up-to-date.
Is it risky to get a refurbished iPhone?
Not at all! Opt for a reputable seller, check the warranty, and read reviews. Refurbished iPhones are reset to factory conditions, ensuring they're practically new. In addition, read return policies, inquire about the battery's health, and confirm carrier compatibility. Thorough testing by the seller, like Phonebot, adds an extra layer of confidence for a worry-free purchase.
How long does the battery last on refurbished iPhones?
The battery on your refurbished iPhones will last as much as the box-pack phone. It is usually higher than 85%, so you don't have to worry. The battery is generally replaced unless it is in good health, usually around 90%.
Refurbished iPhones – Are They Fake?
No, they are not fake. These are original smartphones manufactured by Apple and sold to consumers who, in turn, have traded them in for an upgrade or returned them due to a minor fault like loss of battery life or loose charging port.
Reconditioned iPhone or a Used iPhone?
Refurbished is way better than pre-owned as the iPhone has been thoroughly tested for functionality, physically sanitized, data wiped, iCloud (Apple ID) removed, checked against stolen properties registered, and boxed pack for reselling.
