There's no denying it - iPhones don't come cheap. So, when we spot a good deal on Apple's ultra-popular smartphones, we get pretty excited.

To help kickstart 2021 on a good note, numobile is offering up to 25 per cent off a selection of their already cheap refurbished iPhones. If you're not fussed about getting the latest and greatest iPhone 12, you can score an older, pre-loved model for as little as $389.

Is a refurbished iPhone any good?

A refurbished iPhone is a pre-owned device which has been revamped by the seller and resold at a fraction of the price of a new phone. Each retailer has its own refurbishment process, with Apple's being the most stringent (naturally). Purchasing your pre-loved iPhone from Apple means you'll be getting a device with a brand new battery and outer shell, genuine Apple replacement parts (where necessary), all standard accessories (charger, cable etc.) and a one-year warranty.

numobile, on the other hand, perform a 51-point check on all their "nucertified" devices, testing their speakers, battery, camera, GPS, connectivity and more - not to mention ensuring they look their best. You won't get the same brand new battery and outer shell as you would with Apple, but numobile's iPhones do come with a warranty and free returns in the first 30 days if you're not satisfied with your purchase.
