Get your pre owned iPhones from iStore Pre-owned

Pre-loved is booming and it’s good for you and the environment!

Tech analyst IDC estimate that shipments of used iPhones and refurbished smartphones will rise from 283 million in 2022 to 413 million in 2026 thanks to the success of trade-in programs. Previous research indicate that iPhones make up as much as 80% of the second hand market – creating an even more accessible on-ramp into the broader Apple eco-system.

And getting into the eco-system can and should be a simple one – if you do it right. Most consumers are hesitant when it comes to buying pre-loved goods as not only can they be 100% sure of the seller and the quality of the goods for sale, but the scam horror stories is enough to put even the most excited of buyers off. But it certainly doesn’t have to be that way at all. In fact, by following a few simple tips when it comes to shopping pre-owned tech ensures not only a hassle-free experience, but a positive one as well.

Here are some tips to consider:

  • Buy from a reputable brand;
  • Ensure your product has been thoroughly tested and comes with a warranty;
  • Don’t give out your personal information;
  • Be wary of fake accounts or social media profiles impersonating big brand affiliates.

    Investing in pre-loved equipment not only extends the technology’s lifecycle, but also challenges the throwaway culture, and when purchased from a reputable seller, it is guaranteed to have the same quality and durability consumers have come to expect from their tech brands, says an iStore Pre-owned Representative.

    "In fact, the authenticity of the seller is critical to ensure that not only do all the pre-loved products go through a strict testing process, but they also come with a warranty to ensure there is no disappointment down the line."

    And iStore Pre-owned has this covered and more!
