4 Reasons to Buy a Refurbished iPhone 12

by Duane Tutchen on December 01, 2022
The iPhone 12 was first released in Australia in October 2020, more than two years ago. The 14th generation of the iPhone once again proved incredibly popular, with more than one million models sold in Australia in the first half of 2021 alone. While Apple has since released both the iPhone 13 and the iPhone 14, that doesn't simply mean that consumers should ignore the iPhone 12. In this blog post, we will highlight 4 great reasons to buy a refurbished iPhone 12, whether for yourself or as a gift to someone. These benefits include affordability, long software support, sustainability, and warranty. Let's get started!

1. Affordability

When the iPhone 12 was first released in Australia, it had a sale price starting at $1,349 AUD for the 64GB model. The 12 Mini had a starting price of $1,119 AUD (64GB), the 12 Pro had a starting price of $1,699 AUD (128GB), and the 12 Pro Max cost $1,849 AUD (128GB). The most expensive model was the 512GB Pro Max, which cost $2,369 AUD upon release. Buying a refurbished iPhone 12 is a cost-savvy move. Here at Device Trader, we have refurbished iPhone 12s available starting at just $799 AUD.

2. Long Software Support

Typically, Apple updates its smartphones with new iOS versions for at least five years or longer. That means that you should have software support until at least 2025 at the earliest. Not only can you trust the longevity of the software on the device, but when you purchase an iPhone 12 from Device Trader you can trust our 72-point inspection to ensure that it is working perfectly. We also thoroughly clean the phone and perform any repairs as necessary to ensure that it is 100% functional.

3. Sustainability

Apple releases a new iPhone every year. While it can be exciting, the reality is that older models including those which have been refurbished are still top-quality smartphones. Just because a new iPhone exists, it doesn't mean that the iPhone 12 is obsoletefar from it. If you are environmentally minded, buying a refurbished iPhone 12 makes a lot of sense. Buying a refurbished iPhone cuts down on e-waste and reduces the negative impact on the environment.

4. Warranty

You might assume that a refurbished iPhone won't come with a warranty, however, that happily isn't the case. At Device Trader, you can buy a refurbished iPhone 12 with a full 12-month warranty against faults with the device. So, you can have peace of mind with your iPhone 12 even if something does go wrong (note that the warranty does not cover liquid or physical damage).
