Battery Condition Refurbished iOS devices will come with new battery and outer shell The batteries are tested to check they are healthy
Included Accessories Every device will come with all original accessories, cables and operating systems All OEM accessories. Charger, plug and lead all included
Excellent Condition (Grade A)

You will receive a “like new” device with genuine Apple replacement parts that has been thoroughly cleaned and inspected. Refurbished iOS devices will come with new battery and outer shell.

• Grade A: This grade represents the majority of our range. You will get a fully working machine with minimal marks or scuffs at an amazing price. Products may have light cosmetic (barely noticeable) scratching/scuffs on lid. The underside base panels might have slightly heavier marks or scratches being consistent with being placed on surfaces over time. CheshireMacs are very fair and strict on the grading but please remember these are not brand new so will have some signs of use, but anything deemed to look a little too worn is automatically graded as B.

Good Condition (Grade B)


• Grade B: These are the same as Grade A but will have one small cosmetic issue which will be shown in a photo attached to the product listing. This could be a heavier scratch or small dent, and will come with a discount which will vary in relation to the extent.
