Do refurbished and used iPhones come with warranties?

Apple Refurbished Products: Do They Have a Warranty?

When buying a refurbished product, it’s really hard to find a manufacturer that is willing to give a warranty on their products. This is why Back Market has a policy of giving a minimum warranty of 1-year on all refurbished Apple products, with some even coming with a 2-year warranty! This is what makes us different from the competition, we take warranties seriously!

Do Refurbished iPhones Come in Sealed Boxes?

Yes! Just like new products, our used iPhones come in sealed boxes from a factory. Are they official Apple boxes? Sometimes, that depends on the seller!

Do Refurbished iPhones Come with a Charger?

Yes, of course! They do come with a charger, but it may not be the original Apple charger in the box. This also depends on the seller that you’re buying from.

We love original Apple chargers, don’t get me wrong, we just don’t want you paying more for a used iPhone just to have the Apple logo on a charger :( P.S. This doesn’t mean the charger you’re going to find in your box is any worse!

My least favorite part of owning a smartphone? Having to constantly charge it! Grrr! If you want a used iPhone with amazing battery life, you should definitely consider our refurbished iPhone XR for cheap.

Do Refurbished iPhones Come With Headphones?

No, they do not. We thought long and hard about including headphones with our products, but we decided against it to be able to give you the most competitive price on our listings. And since you’ll be saving so much with your new refurbished iPhone, you’ll be able to go out and buy whatever pair of headphones/earbuds you want (or you can buy a pair from Back Market) :D

What’s the Difference Between Refurbished and Used iPhones? How about Pre Owned and Second Hand?

Well, all of these terms can be used very loosely. You can find cheap iPhones for cheap on Back Market that are used and refurbished—since a product needs to be used (or at least unboxed) to be considered refurbished. For the most part, refurbished products are expected to be of better quality than used products, but this doesn’t always need to be the case. Many retailers don’t have specific guidelines for what “refurbished” needs to mean, and their products can be of poor quality. Back Market takes the term “refurbished” seriously and ensures that all our used products are thoroughly inspected and fixed at the factory before being shipped to you. Since we specialize in selling refurbished Apple products and other electronics, we’re able to focus on properly checking and fixing used iPhones, iPads, etc. In other words, we’re trying to make the refurbished buying experience so good that you won’t be able to distinguish our used Apple products from new Apple products. We’re tired of seeing you overpay for all these great gadgets, so we’ve made it our mission to make these used iPhones better than new ones. We like the sound of that, and we hope you do too :D

Would you look at the time? Did I mention we have some really sweet deals on used Apple Watches? And yes, all of them are refurbished by Back Market's pros :D

What to Check Before Buying a Used iPhone

Hopefully nothing! As I was saying before, the goal should be to buy from a retailer that has the right quality checks and warranties so that you don’t need to check the product on your own. So whether you’re buying a refurbished iPhone or other comparable Apple refurbished product, you should buy all used products from trusted sources that provide extended warranties—like Back Market :D
