What do I look for when buying a pre-owned iPhone

There are a lot of things to consider when buying a pre-owned iPhone. You want to make sure that you’re getting the best possible deal, and that you’re not going to end up with a lemon. Here are some tips to help you out.

One of the great advantages we have with the iPhone, is its long life and its constant software updates, without leaving aside that its components make the phone continue to work very well over the years.

In this business we work with preowned cell phones, and it is important to consider the characteristics of used phones and that is why you should follow these tips.

When we talk about the battery, we can be talking about one of the weakest points of the preowned iPhone, although changing the battery is not something that we can get out of the budget is important that you know what is the state in which the battery is the cell phone, the state of the battery can give us a negotiating advantage to buy the cheapest phone. Offer anywhere from $25 to $50 less for all iPhones with battery levels below 88%.  

Now that we know the battery life of the phone, we must check the external damage, it is important that the phone is as described by the seller because if we buy a phone and then we realize that it has some external damage the gains will not be as expected.

We must check the status of the buttons, both block and volume, also if we are facing a slightly older model of the iPhone, you should check well the home button, check that all functions perfectly and have a good touch sensitivity (The most modern iPhone only has 4 buttons unlike older models that have 5).

It is important to know that one of the functions that iPhone are so popular in the world is its camera, so we must check that this working perfectly and that all sensors are working properly, remember that we are working with preowned cell phones and a fall can affect the cameras, which will make us have to make an investment in the change of those.

I advise you to bring an external power source to check the cell phone, with this we check that the cell phone receives the charge correctly and that the lightning port is working properly.

If you want to go further to check the condition of the phone a recommendation that you can follow is to acquire a software that shows you what parts of the phone have been changed and in the case that some have been replaced, you will know if this is original or generic.

So, before you purchase that pre-owned iPhone, be sure to check all these things. It’s important to know what you’re getting into, so you don’t end up with a dud.
