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.

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.
