Refurbished iPad 7 buyer’s guide

Buyer’s guide to the refurbished iPad (7th Gen)

Released in 2019, the iPad 7 has a 10.2inch display and is available in either Space Grey, silver, or Gold.

Buying an iPad 7 new might not be the best option, and with our range of iPad 7th generation refurbished devices, you can take advantage of Apple technology and get a great tablet at a much more affordable price. 

Where can I buy a refurbished iPad 7th gen?

You can find a refurbished 7th gen iPad online, in several different stores – and here at We Sell Tek we have several options at different price points.

When you are looking to buy a used iPad, be sure that the company has undertaken strict checks to make sure that the device is returned to factory settings, and it works as It did when it was first released. 

Here at We Sell Tek we back our 70-point checks with a 12-month warranty, so you can get an iPad 7th generation, refurbished to the highest standard, and cheaper than you might think. 

How much does a refurbished iPad 7th gen cost?

At We Sell Tek, part of the refurbishment process that we go through is to check on the condition of the device.

This grading tells you what the refurbished iPad 7th gen looks like – whether it has had heavy use, whether there are noticeable scratches, or whether it could pass as a brand-new device. This is part of the way we price our devices. 

Price also depends on the storage capacity of the iPad, and whether it works using 4G technology or only connects to the internet via Wi-fi. 

As an example, an iPad 7th generation refurbished with 4G in ‘Pristine’ condition with a 32GB storage capacity will cost less than £320 from us. 

At We Sell Tek, the options for Wi-fi only iPad 7th gen refurbished in ‘Pristine’ condition with 128GB of memory will cost less than £290.

Refurbished iPad 7th gen: Key features


The refurbished 7th gen iPad has a bigger display than most of the entry-level predecessors at 10.2inches, which makes a difference when it comes to using it for graphics etc. The processing is fast enough to cope with everyday use, watching movies and videos, and it works great with multiple apps. 

Wi-fi only vs 4G

You can choose to get an iPad 7 refurbished with Wi-fi only or 4G capabilities – and your choice will depend on how much you want to spend as much as where you are planning to use it. 

The Wi-fi only device uses your home or office Wi-fi to connect to the internet, which makes it a good option if you are going to be using it somewhere that you have a reliable internet connection. 

The 4G option supports a SIM card, much like in a smartphone, so you can connect to the internet via a mobile phone network. The refurbished iPad 7 4G sold here at We Sell Tek are all unlocked so you can choose which network you want to use – and this means that you have more options for going online when you are out and about.

Refurbished iPad 7th generation performance

Although the iPad 7 refurbished has the same A10 Fusion chip as the sixth generation, the combination of that and the M10 coprocessor means that it can keep up with even the most demanding of multitasking. 

Apple has always been at the forefront of performance technology, and the iPad 7 uses the iPadOS that has been specifically designed to work with iPad technology, software, and apps. 

Does the refurbished iPad 7 come with a new battery?

As part of the intensive 70-point process we go through when we are refurbishing the iPad 7, we always check the battery performance. If it does not meet our strict requirements of being at least 80% of the original performance, then we will replace it.

Does a refurbished iPad 7 have a wireless battery?

The refurbished iPad 7th gen does not charge wirelessly, but you can use the smart connector or a magic keyboard. 

Does the refurbished 7th gen iPad support apple pencil?

The iPad 7 supports the 1st Generation Apple Pencil, which is great for those who want to use the iPad as a design tool or for drawing. 

Does the refurbished iPad 7 support Apple Keyboard and Mouse?

In a nutshell, yes. You can use some third-party keyboards too, but it is worth getting either the Apple Keyboard or the Magic Keyboard for reliable results. 

Attaching the keyboard to your iPad gives you the flexibility of using like a computer – which is perfect for those who want to work on the go, without taking a MacBook or a laptop with them.

How much storage is in a refurbished iPad 7th Gen?

The refurbished iPad 7th Generation has either 32GB or 128GB of storage.

Refurbished iPad 7th generation camera performance

The rear 8MP camera has an f/2.4 aperture and auto image stabilisation. It can create panorama images at 43MP.

The front camera at 1.2MP may not offer as much quality in images, but it is enough to use FaceTime or as a webcam. 

Refurbished iPad 7 video performance

The rear camera is capable of recording video in 1080p HD at 30fps, with both slo-mo and timelapse options. 

With up to 3 x video zoom, you can really focus on the important parts of what you are filming, even from a distance.
