    Just purchased an Apple certified refurbished iPad Mini 2 from a third party and wanted to check this it really is

    I have no problem with the iPad itself, but I'll chuck the charger and cable if they're fakes

    I've attached a picture of all the packaging
    There was also a rubbish photocopy of some instructions on using the Apple power adapter and the various input voltages

    Ok I've just watched some videos on YouTube [which I should have done before posting this] and can see that Apple refurbs are clearly different with white boxes

    They come in white boxes, and the charger/cables/instructions are in original packaging.

    A 3rd party could be getting something different than how apple sells it. That is how apple refurbs bought directly from apple look (white box, original packaging).

    That may be a company that is certified to repair apple products. I bet they fixed a returned/damaged unit and repackaged it themselves. The only concern I would have is if it has a warranty.
