Refurbished Apple iPhones Unlocked

If you're looking to purchase an Apple iPhone in the UK then the best option for you is to get it refurbished rather than brand-new. Other than the price difference, you won't be able to tell a refurbished iPhone from a brand-new one in most cases once you find the best place to buy a refurbished iPhone. Here's why:
Enjoy Optimized Battery Charging with refurbished iPhones
With the release of iOS 13, Apple rolled out a new feature called the Optimized Battery Charging. This feature allows your iPhone to learn your battery usage pattern and how long the iPhone will be plugged into the charger overnight. As time passes while you are using your iPhone, iOS will learn the time that you usually take your iPhone off the charger approximately. The next action for your iPhone, based on your charging pattern, the iPhone would stop charging all the way up to 100% as soon as it is plugged into the charger. Instead, the battery will stop charging at 80% for most of the night and, once the time you are used to unplug your phone at in the morning approaches, iOS will allow your battery to charge to 100% fully.
This option is automatically activated in your iPhone as long as it runs iOS 13 or a later version. Even if your iPhone's software would require an update to run the latest version of iOS, once the iOS version is installed, the Optimized Battery Charging will be turned on for your iPhone.
However, you must take into consideration that, even though the Optimized Battery Charging is on, it will not start to actively function before a few weeks has passed while you are using and charging your iPhone in order for the feature to be able to learn your charging and battery consumption patterns.
