What is the difference between an unboxed iPod 5 and a refurbished iPod 5?

  • Best Answer:

    An unboxed iPod touch 5th generation was never used prior to its arrival in the store, and refurbished is a previously used but replenished version. On a refurbished their might be some usage marks and fingerprints, but nothing that affects the device too badly. A refurbished iPod will always have a new, fresh battery in it as part of the refurbishment process.

    I hope you understood this answer.

  • A refurbished iPod is one that has been returned from whoever bought it and is certifiably tested for defects. If it has none, the manufacturer sells it at a discounted price.
