Apple Means Quality
When it comes to memorable and easily recognizable brand names or logos, Apple is certainly at the top. If you don’t have an iPhone, you probably want one. And if you are a part of the Apple ecosystem, you probably have multiple other products. It is not just that the products are interconnected and work together perfectly, but also all these products are of the highest quality. In terms of development, Apple is at the forefront of the game.
The company has built its name and reputation around products that are simply better than anything else on the market. The company clearly set out a goal to design and build better products than the competition. If this is not possible, the company won’t do it.
And there is one other thing. Apple knows their marketing. Everything is made to a high standard, from the products to the accessories and even the packaging. Customer service is top-notch and the stores are all developed in such a way that you feel detached from the world and immersed in the Apple universe as soon as you enter the door. The hype it can create when it launches a new iPhone is best illustrated by the fact that people start camping in front of Apple stores days ahead of the launch, just so they can be the first ones to show off their new gadget. There are few companies and brands capable of having this effect on consumers.
iPhones Head the Value Retention Game
Due to the quality of the product in the first place, iPhones keep their value better than any other smartphone on the market, despite new models entering the market in regular one-year intervals, around September. While every new lineup has various spec options, each model is of such high quality that even models from two years ago are more than capable of performing better than many brand new smartphones. This is the reason iPhones hold their value so well.
The brand appeal plays its part as well. Those who can’t afford brand new models are looking to buy older models at discounted prices. The majority of models can be updated to the latest operating system without loss of performance.
For someone looking to buy wholesale lots of iPhones for resale, this is good news because Apple products have an eager customer/fan base that is either looking for a bargain or an upgrade from their previous model.
What Are Refurbished Products
You have probably already heard of refurbished products. These are pre-owned products that have been inspected and brought back to ‘as new’ condition.
Products that get returned for various reasons may go through a review and repair process, known as refurbishment. These products come out of the process ‘as new’ and undergo tests that verify their functionality. Many manufacturers and even liquidators will slap on a new warranty on these products.
However, buyers might have had bad experiences with this kind of merchandise if they have dealt with unreliable sellers on eBay or elsewhere. But if you do your research properly and buy merchandise refurbished either by the manufacturer or a top-tier liquidator, you should have no issues with the merchandise, which often comes with a warranty.
