Looking at sites selling phones, you can often see iPhones that are much cheaper than those sold in official stores. True, the postscript to the name refurbished is alarming. The secret of the inscription is simple – such devices have already been used once. Only traces of this are unlikely to be found at first glance, depending on the build quality, because smart people have long realized that you can buy broken or simply unnecessary iPhones from people, restore them for pennies with Chinese parts, and then profit from resale. Another question is, how long will such an iPhone live with the new owner?

It all depends on the good faith of the repairer and the number of remanufactured parts. Buying a refurbished iPhone is a real roulette wheel. You may come across a phone that has only its battery replaced. In this case, it can work for a long time without failures. But, if many internal elements got under the restoration, the phone can be covered at any moment.
Refurbished iPhones from Apple itself are another matter. In such devices, the replaced parts are original and installed by specialists. Therefore, such phones live even longer than normal iPhones, because they are, in fact, double-checked at the factory. Therefore, if you want to purchase refurbished iPhone, it is better to do it from resellers. You will have to pay a little more, but you will not have to endlessly wander from one repair shop to another.
