Why the Used iPhone 6S is King

Here's why a refurbished iPhone 6S may be the best iPhone to get right now

The unbelievably sexy iPhone 6S

Ooohhh, Mystery

When the iPhone 6S was released in 2015, it didn’t seem like that big of a deal. It looked exactly like the iPhone 6, and didn’t feel noticeably faster at the time.

But over time, the iPhone 6S became a classic for many hidden reasons (mysterious, right?)

The iPhone 6S is one of the best looking iPhones ever, but that's just my opinion :P Either way, it's another good reason why you should buy a refurbished iPhone 6S.

We hope you keep reading, but here are some refurbished iPhone 6S deals!

1. “BendGate”

The iPhone 6 had a serious defect: it didn’t have enough structural integrity for many users. Some found the iPhone 6 bending in their pockets, and Apple didn’t do anything about it… At least not immediately. People complained, but to no avail.

The tech giant even released a statement claiming that it tested the iPhone 6 extensively and found no problems with it.

The iPhone 6 may have been structurally weaker than other iPhones, but that doesn't make it a bad device. Matter of fact, the iPhone 6 is the best-selling iPhone of all time with over 220 million units sold.

But then the iPhone 6S came out, and people realized that Apple had used a different metal in this version—even though it looked exactly the same as the iPhone 6 on the outside—to avoid any chances of the phone bending. Many called this an admission of guilt, but take it as you will, it’s definitely a sturdier iPhone.

Many of the new iPhones have a back made of glass. Since this has a metal back, it has a much smaller chance of breaking if you drop it without a case. So whether you get a refurbished iPhone 6 or 6S, they will probably be more durable than any of the newer iPhones. 

2. iOS 13

As of right now, the iPhone 6S is still running the most recent Apple mobile operating system: iOS 13. It is the oldest iPhone to receive the update (the iPhone 6 is stuck on the last version of iOS 12). It may not seem like much, but it’s always nice to have the newest version of iOS. Apps will work better, you’ll have more features, and your iPhone will feel newer.

If you travel a lot, make sure to get an unlocked phone! These will work on almost any service carrier, no matter where you go in the world. 

3. The iPhone 6S Gives You the Most Bang For Your Buck

It’s probably the cheapest iPhone that comes with iOS 13. As of right now, you can get it for around $100 on Back Market, and don’t forget that you’re getting a 12-month warranty with that as well. Even though the iPhone 6S isn’t the newest iPhone, it will do everything just as well as the $1,000 iPhone 11 Pro (except maybe night photography), for only a fraction of the price. But I’m really being serious. Install a game. Open a ton of Safari tabs. Watch your favorite YouTube videos. Binge social media. The iPhone 6S is up to the task.

With the student discount, this iPhone is even cheaper! That's what I call a bargain!
