Just as described. I found this to be a great deal on a nearly perfect refurb. Not a mark on it, really.06/12/21
It’s unfortunate that many of our grandparents feel left behind by all the recent innovations in technology, but some of this stuff is pretty hard to learn how to use. I grew up with computers, so I have no idea what it’s like to just start seeing this stuff emerge later in life. But thankfully, Apple devices are super intuitive, and it was a piece of cake for me to teach my grandmother how to use her new iPhone. Refurbished Apple devices make great gifts for grandparents that are willing to jump into the tech realm :D
That’s a great question! If your grandmother just wants something simple and inexpensive, we suggest buying the iPhone 8 this Christmas. But if she wants a bigger slightly more expensive iPhone with a bigger screen for watching videos, using social media, etc, then check out our gift guide for our favorite iPhones to buy this Christmas.
iPads are also super easy to easy, just like iPhones. But I wouldn’t really suggest buying your grandma a Windows laptop or MacBook unless she already has experience using these devices. We may not notice it, but it’s actually much harder to learn how to use an actual computer as opposed to an iPhone or iPad. I remember trying to teach my grandmother how to use an Android device, and even that was very tricky for her. Here’s a good rule of thumb: the more complex and customizable the device, the harder it is to use for a beginner.
