Which Refurbished iPad is Recommended to Buy in 2023?

It's exciting when you have decided to go for an iPad to make things easier for work or home use. At the same time, it can be very confusing to choose the best option because there are many options in the market. There are a few varieties of iPad and all are available with or without cellular, including 5G on specific models.

 Even after knowing all this, buying a brand-new iPad can be very expensive and leave a big dent in your wallet. On the other hand, refurbished ones are affordable and loaded with the features and specs you need. Let us understand why buying a refurbished iPad is recommended and how to choose one as per your requirements.

What to Look for When Buying an iPad?

When you have many options available, consider and explore all the factors influencing your decision, such as value for money, the amount of storage you need, and whether or not to buy a cellular version.

  • Which iPad is the Best Value for Money?

When we talk about value for money, its definition can be different for different people. However, if you want a budget-friendly option, meaning the cheapest but the kind of the latest refurbished iPad, then the 9th Gen iPad launched in September 2021 can be a great deal. It offers a reasonably impressive package with great tech, making it an attractive budget option.

On the other hand, if you can stretch your budget a bit, look carefully at the features and specs of the 10th Gen iPad (2022) as it has plenty of reasons to spend a little extra. Moreover, if you like compact iPads with a faster A15 processor, True Tone flash, and better quality display, the refurbished iPad Mini (2021) justifies its slightly higher price.

  • How much storage do you need?

The next question is what capacity do you need? Well, first, remember that you cannot increase the iPad's memory once you purchase it. There is only an option to upgrade it later to buy a new one, so buy as much storage as you can afford.

Music, photos, videos, apps, and games mainly use up the iPad storage. If you are strictly using it for education or work purposes and not for taking pictures or hardly playing video games, then 64GB is enough. However, if you want to keep many movies, TV shows, images, videos, and games, you better aim for a higher storage minimum of 128GB and onwards.

  • Should you get a cellular iPad?

Cellular connectivity is a very useful feature and it is nice to have it for some extra money. In this case, however, you also have to factor in the additional cost of a data plan. That's all about it but consider carefully how often you will use it. If you are always on the go where you can catch up on daily news, emails and interesting articles, it's worth spending extra.

The other alternative for this is you can also create a hotspot on your phone and share it with your iPad. Again, you can use it as if using a cellular network. Still, the cellular option also brings GPS Radio, meaning you can input accurate location data while using your device on the commute.

    So, which iPad is the best for you? There isn’t a set answer to this. It all depends on what all you need in an iPad. If you just want an iPad for reading books, watching movies and TV shows, emailing and web browsing, you don’t need it loaded with all the high-tech specs. A refurbished iPad 10.2(2020) or iPad mini might be the best here.

    Suppose you are looking for an iPad to do everything a laptop can. In that case, you might consider a more robust model that supports additional components, including Apple’s fancy keyboards or the Apple Pencil 2. Considering that, the refurbished iPad Air (2022) is the right choice for you. Moreover, if you want to use it for gaming, video editing, photo editing, or anything high-graphic intensive, you will need a refurbished iPad Pro (2022). 

    No matter which iPad suits your requirements, as long as you buy it from a reputable retailer and check it comes with a warranty, it is perfectly safe. However, to ensure the device has been professionally checked and fixed, you should buy it from reliable dealers like Mobile Guru. It’s a 100% Australian reseller and offers up to 24 months warranty with 30 days of return policy. Call 1300 362 017 or email hello@mobileguruaustralia.com.au, and a dedicated team will help you.
