What are the Best Refurbished iPhones to Buy in 2022?

Looking for a new iPhone? You’ll save money and have more choices with refurbished iPhones

If you were to only look at brand new iPhones, there are not many options. Apple only sells the latest models.

And these new flagship iPhones are ridiculously expensive, so you’d better make sure you need all those latest fancy features

Considering the small improvements in iPhones year on year, why would you break the piggy bank for the latest iPhone which only has a slight edge over previous models?

However, if you look at the used/refurbished market, you’ll find heaps of models to choose from.

Apple flagship iPhones are more powerful than we realise. Even if you buy a device that’s several years old, you're still likely to get a phone that is more than powerful enough to handle everyday tasks such as browsing the web, scrolling through social media apps, using Google maps, taking pictures and streaming music and videos.

There's never been more choices for iPhone lovers. As in most purchasing decisions, the right model for you largely depends on your needs when it comes to price, performance, cameras, size options, and features.

So which iphone is best for you?

Below are Rebold's top picks based on your needs:


The “Classic with all the basics”: Apple iPhone SE (2020)

iPhone SE (2020)

If you’re a fan of Apple’s older phones and are looking for something compact and functional, the iPhone SE (the 2020 model) is what you need. The iPhone SE has thick bezels, a home button, and Touch ID for secure unlocking.

You'll be able to run pretty much any app, and most games, perfectly fine.
