iPads are one of the most popular tablets to use in a business setting, but as we know, they can be costly. Refurbished iPads bought are a more affordable option, without having to sacrifice quality.
What is a refurbished iPad Mini?
A refurbished iPad Mini is an iPad that has been little used in the past and has returned to market because it’s in excellent condition. The product undergoes a rigorous refurbishment process to make sure it’s up to Apple’s tough quality standards, after which there’s virtually no difference between the refurbished product and the brand-new iPad Mini.
The quality of Apple’s products is at great prices as a rigorous refurbishment process is done before the sale. They are covered by Apple’s one-year limited warranty and have a 14-day return policy.
The product is then put on sale with a discount. The price is considerably cheaper than it would be for a new one, and Apple sells it under the same conditions as a new iPad Mini:
- same technical specifications
- same warranty
- same service agreement.
So, if you are looking for a technology upgrade but are reluctant to pay the high prices, buying a refurbished or second-hand product is good for your wallet and good for the planet. Here we specifically review refurbished Apple iPad:
A refurbished iPad is a returned one that has been repaired, tested and cleaned up to be in good working order for a re-sell. In this way, iPads have gone through a refurbishment testing process. Refurbished iPads are 100% functional, and all their components work like new. From their screen to the battery, refurbished ipads will always be in full working condition, exactly like their brand-new counterparts do.
These refurbished devices go through the same testing process as new devices do. So, any defect is found and repaired, and any faulty part is replaced. Since the products aren’t new, retailers don’t price them as new, although they should function just as well. This allows you to get a fully working, virtually new product at a sizable discount.
What goes into a refurbished iPad Mini?
All refurbished iPad models from Apple company come with a new battery, and new outer shell, is backed by a one-year warranty, have free delivery and returns and also include:
- Full functional testing, genuine Apple part replacements, and a thorough cleaning
- The original Operating System or a more recent version
- All refurbished devices are repackaged in a brand-new box with all accessories and cables
Therefore, you will receive a “like-new” device with genuine Apple replacement parts that have been thoroughly cleaned and inspected. Every device will come with all accessories, cables and operating systems. All “Apple Certified Refurbished” products are packaged in a brand-new white box and will be sent to you with free shipping and returns.
Why buy a refurbished iPad Mini?
Buying a refurbished iPad Mini is a responsible way to use electronic goods. Repurposing pre-owned devices means that no more electronic waste is created at least on your behalf. In this way, buying a refurbished iPad is good not only for your wallet but also for the planet. Giving these devices a new life allows you to avoid disposal and electronic waste. It is a strong boost to the circular economy, too.
