One thing you can do with it :) resell it as burner phone because you don't know what's the history of that phone if it was used to illegal activities and intercepted in this period then you got he police in your pocket :)

Just put Graphene OS on it.

It's an iphone so that's not an option. Even with being factory reset, I'd be very hesitant to use it since you don't know where it came from and what's going to happen when it gets back online. Being an iOS device, assume that it's phoning home whenever it connects to the internet.

My bad, I didn't read your post correctly. But in that case, if you need a phone for normal daily things then you shouldn't worry about it too much. Sometimes paranoia makes life difficult. Otherwise, there are ways to jailbreak those devices, do a little research. Worst case you can refurbish it and try to get $300 for it back on cl lol

Graphene only works on Google Pixel devices. Search around on the clearnet and you should find a number of videos and tutorials
