Refurbished iPad Best Buy: Loop8’s Top Picks


Apple launched the iPad series of tablet computers in 2010. Since then, it has become the go-to tablet for a majority of consumers around the world. In fact, the iPad was what made the tablet computers visible to the masses and is even synonymous with them.

 In 2012, the iPad Mini was introduced into the market, followed by the Air and Pro versions more years later. Since then, these have been updated multiple times and although the most recent models are what people often prefer to buy for their first tablet, its older, refurbished models are still just as useful.

 What’s more, they come with a way smaller price tag that won’t force you to think twice before buying the version of the iPad you have had in your wish list for a while now. If you haven’t been able to decide which model is best suited to your needs, don’t worry - we have tried to make the options clearer for you in this blog.  

 Best Options for iPad Refurbished UK Customers Can Choose From

 While we offer a wide range of models in all the iPad variants, there are some models that are more likely to be the perfect choice for you because of their combinations of features. These are based on a few questions -

  • How big do you want your tablet to be? If you want a tablet for binge-watching or web browsing, then the bigger screen size of the iPad Air is a good option. It is also lighter in weight and slimmer than its counterparts and therefore, easier to carry around.
  • Those who want a smaller and more portable tablet can easily go for one of the iPad Mini models like Mini 2. While the performance won’t be as good as the Pro version, it is ideal for a large number of common tasks.
  • What kind of tasks are you buying it for? Is your tablet going to serve as a device that improves your work efficiency in all ways possible? If so,then go with the iPad Air 2 for an impressive performance that makes you forget about slow load times.
  • On the other hand, if you only want a tablet to play Candy Crush and for social media, then the original iPad Air or even the refurbished iPad Air 3rd Generation will be an excellent option to consider.

 Before you make your final decision, be sure to explore all the technical specifications listed below the product description and key features on each product’s page. They’ll help you narrow down the list further by giving a clearer idea of the capabilities of each item you are considering.
