Why It’s Smarter To Buy A Refurbished iPhone Rather Than A New One

Here are six good reasons why you should opt for a refurbished iPhone from Swappie:

1. It’s more affordable

Of course, one of the most attractive things about buying a refurbished iPhone is the price. A new phone is not in everyone’s budget, and by choosing a refurbished phone you can browse through more budget-friendly options. There are numerous models and four main condition categories that you can choose from: Like New, Very Good and Acceptable. Depending on the model and its condition category, you could find an iPhone that is up to 40% cheaper than those sold by other retail stores.

It is important to note that these condition categories are simply cosmetic; they only refer to appearance of the phone. All of our phones have been meticulously inspected and repaired as necessary by our specialists. This includes a 52-step checking process where the phone’s functions are tested extensively and any damaged parts are replaced with brand new ones.  So no matter what condition category you choose, you can expect our phones to function as new.

2. Refurbished phones can have a longer lifespan than you think

It’s a common misconception that refurbished mobile phones have shorter lifespans than new ones. It all depends on how the phone has been refurbished. A great example of the surprising lifespan of refurbished iPhones is the iPhone 6s. It was released back in 2015 and its popularity continues to this day. You may expect a five-year-old model to have trouble functioning, but not after we work our magic on it. At Swappie, we check both the loading cycles and the capacity of every battery and replace all those which have less than 80% capacity. This guarantees that the phones will function efficiently and in accordance with both ours and Apple’s standards.

3. We offer a long and comprehensive warranty

Since our repair process extends the lifespan of an iPhone by several years, we can offer a long and comprehensive warranty. All of our phones, regardless of their condition, are covered by our 12-month Swappie warranty, which gives you the same protection as when buying a new phone.

4. Buying a refurbished iPhone is a more sustainable choice

For each new phone that is manufactured, numerous raw materials must be used. These materials are mined in processes that emit significant quantities of carbon dioxide, further contributing to global warming. In fact, as much as 85–95% of carbon emissions caused by mobile phones are produced during their production!

By purchasing a refurbished iPhone from us, you’re helping to contribute to the responsible recycling of existing resources and environmentally sustainable consumption. Thus you are saving our planet from harmful carbon dioxide emissions and contamination from unnecessary electronic waste.

5. We guarantee a safe and secure purchase with a 14-day return policy

You can have absolute peace of mind when buying a refurbished iPhone from Swappie. Our website is safe and secure and if for any reason our product doesn’t live up to your expectations, you have up to 14 days to return it, no questions asked.

6. You get the same high-quality shopping experience as when you shop in a store

Of course, we know that part of the excitement of getting a new phone is the shopping experience. That’s why we have taken such care in designing our sleek website and our very own Swappie boxes. Our boxes are similar to Apple’s, and in addition to the phone, include a SIM card opener, charging cable, and instructions regarding Swappie’s return policy and warranty.
