Amazon calculates a product’s star ratings based on a machine learned model instead of a raw data average. The model takes into account factors including the age of a rating, whether the ratings are from verified purchasers, and factors that establish reviewer trustworthiness.
I was a little concerned as the "certified refurbished" was an Amazon refurbished classification, not Apples. However I've had the device for about 3 weeks now and it's working fine. I wasn't real comfortable with the shipping packing - the left and right cushioning was sufficient however top and bottom relied on the box itself, but again, it appears to be working quite well. I saved a good amount of money buying this iPad this way.
1.0 out of 5 starsBox seal was torn, useless charger came instead of actual usable charger

The seal on the box was torn when I received the box. Inside, instead of the Ipad charger, there is a weak cell phone charger that cannot even charge the Ipad. Also the charging cable is a cheap chinese product.
Unless they send me a proper charger and a cable, I am returning this.
This is the second time I've purchased a refurbished/renewed Apple product (the first being a MacBook Pro), and I've never been able to tell the difference between brand new and renewed. This iPad was shipped in a box with plenty of padding, sealed in plastic inside of another cardboard box, and arrived 2 days after ordering. The charger was also packaged in a sealed bag. No cosmetic blemishes anywhere. Maybe a new iPad comes with a manual? That would be the only thing missing here. Very happy with this purchase. 30% off of an Apple product makes it reasonably priced!
The iPad arrived on time in generic packaging which I expected packaging was sufficient to protect the iPad I’m assuming this is an Apple charger it’s very small the lightning cord appears to be Apple, the iPad is in excellent condition no scratches no scuffs appears to be brand new. 32 gb is not enough memory to be even useful after the original software is loaded there’s not much Storage room left maybe browsing the Internet a little bit of Facebook some pictures and a couple of videos after that any applications of any real meaning will immediately fill up 2 GB. I know you can offload some of it to the iCloud but you will be frustrated if you want to do anything more than light storage. Some of the reviews had mixed results whether it works with the first generation Apple Pen, this one does work with the first generation Apple Pen
This was a gift for my nephew and having the wonderful experience with apple refurbished I thought in this case would be the same unfortunately was not. The exterior case has signs of being used. It was not refurbished since in that case the case would be new. The cable provided was not the original from apple and annoyingly slow in charging. Although it came in the original box it was closed very badly all over with some packaging tape. Everything else seemed in order but only time will tell
I missed having an iPad, and decided to check out amazon for deals, as I didn’t necessarily want a brand new one. I wasn’t disappointed.
Mine works great. It runs my games and apps flawlessly, and aside from the notorious not-so-great battery life, my only complaint is that the iPad came with a knock-off charging cable and block, which are detrimental to the battery in the long run.
My first time buying refurbished. But it works perfectly fine. It came in the original box. The box looked a little old but the tablet was A quality. Not a scratch on it. At least none that I can see. I also got a new charger. I’ve had it for about 3 weeks now and it works great. No complaints.
Bought this for my daughter for her 10th birthday. She wanted it to use with the apple pencil. There was no visible difference in the device because it was refurbished. So far we have had no issues. Well worth the price.
