How to choose an iPhone 11? ​

Apple released their newest and possibly sleekest iPhone model in September 2019, the iPhone 11. This, along with the iPhone 11 Pro & iPhone 11 Pro Max, make up the 11th gen iPhone family, following on from the iPhone XS. The 11th generation iPhone is an excellent, high-spec smartphone powered by an A13 bionic chip, Apple's fastest processor to date. It has a stunning 12-megapixel camera with digital and optical zoom and a slightly longer battery life than its predecessor - the battery life is even described as epic by Forbes, no less. If you are looking for the most up-to-date, advanced smartphone technology, the iPhone 11 is one of the top models on the market. All 3 versions feature Bluetooth 5.0, NFC with reader mode, and in-built GPS, though they vary when it comes to screen size and capacity. When choosing an iPhone, focus on the features that are most important to you - screen size, capacity, and camera specs (photos as well as videos) tend to top the list when it comes to deciding factors for a lot of people.

A refurbished iPhone 11 is a pocket-friendly investment

We’re all about the latest and most cutting-edge devices here at Back Market. The differences between this and last year’s iPhone are more iterative than revolutionary. Additionally, the cost of the latest flagship device is soaring through the roof. So, could this be the time to save a few hundred quid and choose a refurbished iPhone 11 as your next phone? At Back Market, we're leading the charge in getting smartphone users to recycle their old phones and go for restored devices when they upgrade. Why, you may ask? Well, for a start, the global annual generation of electronic waste now stands at between 20 and 50 million tons. According to our calculations, Back Market has so far been able to make a 1700-ton dent in that waste quantity. Now, does that mean you can’t buy a new iPhone 11? No. Does it mean you can hit two birds with one stone? Hell yeah!

Refurbished iPhone XR is affordable superior functionality

Since the very first iPhone was launched more than a decade ago, every September there’s a customary annual rush to own the latest model. As the technology improves and more features have been added, the price tag has steadily crept up to a front-page grabbing £1000. But that’s all well and fine is you simply can’t do without the very latest iPhone—a lot of us out here can’t either. But what if all you want is a lightning-fast iPhone with excellent features, but without stretching your purse strings too much? Well, Apple in the recent past has had the presence of mind to keep the previous generation iPhone available to buy. But even better, as more people trade in their iPhones from last year and upgrade, there are now a lot of pre-owned iPhone XR phones for sale. Depending on which model you had, you can now upgrade your smartphone for a whole lot less money. Also, by using a refurbished iPhone XR, you help reduce the 20 to 50 million tons of e-waste that ends up in landfills each year. Low prices and saving the planet in a single stroke is music to anyone’s ears, but how do you ensure that you won’t get yourself a useless piece of junk? For a start, you’ve come to the right place—congratulations are in order. Back Market works only with certified professionals and has so far managed to thwart the creation of at least 1700 tons of e-waste. But, we digress—back to your refurbished iPhone XR. Here’s what to look out for.
