What are second-hand and refurbished iPads?

First of all, remember that refurbished and reconditioned Apple products are previously owned items that have been rigorously tested and repaired to work just like new. But, buying second-hand and used, means that you’re buying the device as is with no after-purchase protection, which makes it slightly riskier just in case you don’t buy from a reliable and known seller. So, buying refurbished is a nice halfway house between brand-new and second-hand.

The best option is the “factory refurbished” or “certified refurbished”, in this case, you can be confident the quality and reliability will match a new device with about % a 20 discount.

Apple refurbished products go under a rigorous cleaning, testing, and repairs process, where parts that don’t work or are damaged are replaced. So, the final products work just like the new ones.
