By buying refurbished you save the planet a lot of exhaustion. With a refurbished iPhone, you already save about 77,000 liters of water, which is more than the average person drinks during their entire life. This amount of water is used, among other things, to mine the materials for a new appliance. And this is just the tip of the veil.
Paying for someone else's trip around the world
Also try to imagine that all those materials have to be shipped, produced, and screwed together, only to end up in the department stores, shops, and eventually your hands. A considerable amount of distance is covered, while a refurbished phone has already made that journey. So you save a trip around the planet (for someone else) if you buy refurbished.
Refurbished vs second-hand
Buying things that other people have used before is nothing new. People have been buying second-hand furniture, cars, and clothes for years. This is not only a great way to save money but also a way to find the product that best suits your needs. Maybe you don't want the latest of the latest at all, because you never intended to use the latest features anyway. However, additional questions often arise when purchasing a second-hand product.
Consider, for example, the purchase of a used car. You would want some certainty that everything works properly. You, therefore, look at the repair history of the car, how many kilometers have been driven, look for rust spots, and so on.
With a refurbished phone, all that work is already done for you. At iApples you can rest assured that the product is in good condition. The battery is also checked to see if it has sufficient capacity so that you can use the product all day long. Do you want to know more about it? Then read this blog post.
Why refurbished Apple products?
Apple products are often supported for a long time with software updates. As a result, the phone can withstand security vulnerabilities for longer. In addition, you can often still use new features in the updates. For example the most recently released update for the iPhone, iOS 16. This gives you extra options to adjust your home screen, among other things. You can read more about it on Apple's website. Do you want to know more about buying a refurbished Apple product?
