Would these be the type that would come with a non apple digitiser?
Obviously yes, unless the tablet is supplied to them by Apple. Unlikely that unless warranty is with Apple.


Good price, decent seller
Be aware this appears to be a return to base warrenty where the purchaser covers the cost of returning the item to the seller.
Don't do it! My refurb was 2 units put back together......case had a different serial compared to the os.
As this has a new screen installed, does this mean that TouchID will not work?

It says 100% tested so it must have the original touch sensor.

Looks less risk than an ebay buy at a similar price. The company has been operating a decade or more.

​In all seriousness I got a refurbished air from them. The repair was terrible.
Massive gap on one side of the unit and it kept resetting itself.
Battery died completely with no charging possible after 2 days and when It did charge it wasnt updating the percentages right.

I bought it because of the company and all the good deals they have here. But as per my above comment you should have seen the guy at the genius bars face when I brought it too him with double serial numbers. One was for a white unit while the one I was shipped was grey.
And ?

What about the company 1 year warranty?
No one pays the genius bar for repairs. It ain't worth it!

​I work as an tablet, laptop and phone refurbisher. You need engineers with real skill these days to repair these items properly. You'll rarely get genuine parts too. Fortunately where I work we have engineers with excellent skills in repairing these items. You also have to deal with liquid damaged stock too.

A typical decent engineer will be able to replace ICs on the main board, including the very common U2 IC charging fault on Apple products. Typically the engineer must be able to work through mainboard schematics. These types of repairs require a microscope or equipment such as Tagarno usb 1080p magnifier.

The problem is too many engineers are useless and have learnt from YouTube and haven't been taught properly. They won't even know what a rectifier or MOSFET is, basic stuff.

Always one ...
Get a generation two. Cheaper price and the only advantage had by the third generation is a finger print reader.

Refurbished units are usually obvious I'm surprised he even got that far!

As others have said though, the only refurbished iPads worth getting are the ones from Apple - otherwise, just don't do it. This company did the iPad Air 1st gen 'refurbs' as well and they basically buying written-off/non-working stock (e.g. what Envirofone, Mazuma, etc, would consider 'non-working') for cheap, slapping a third-party digitizer on it (which is the only kind you can buy) - probably an LL Trader branded one and selling it as a 'tested refurbished' model. It's a false economy. If you are on a budget (and fair enough, who of us aren't), then buy a 'used' iPad - e.g. one that has been used/second-hand but never repaired and you'll likely be fine.

It's not even as though these are like the phones where you can remove the screws and they pop open, these things are glued and you need heat guns or bags to get the glass off, it's obvious they will never go back on right again.
