A TikTok user, @kagantech, has taken to social media to advise people on the important things to check before buying a used iPhone.
He said that while buying a used iPhone can be a more affordable option, it’s important to make sure you’re getting a device in good condition. The first thing to check is the phone’s physical appearance, including the screen and any dead pixels.

Additionally, test that the true tone and brightness adjustment are working properly. Next, check the phone’s speaker by playing audio files or videos to ensure both the top and bottom speakers are working.
If the phone has multiple cameras, test them all by taking a selfie and recording a video to check the audio playback. Another crucial aspect to check is the battery’s health, which can be found in the settings under the battery.
If the battery health is at 100% for a used iPhone from 2023, there may be fraudulent activity or altered settings. Also, be sure to test the sim card lock and wifi connectivity. Finally, ensure that the Face ID and touch features are functioning correctly, as a malfunction could indicate a stolen phone.
