Refurbished goods sold by third-party vendors can often be skeptical. Thus, purchasing from original makers is recommended. And here, Apple is now selling the refurbished iPhone XR handsets directly from its website.
But wait, that’s only for the US market. Further, you can choose between all three storage variants but in limited colors. These refurbished models can save $100-120 off the current new models.
Editor’s Pick: Apple iPhone 12 – Everything we know so far
Still a Good Phone
iPhone XR was launched back in 2018 and hailed as the best smartphone of 2019. This Apple flagship is equipped with 6.1″ IPS LCD Liquid Retina Display with a sizeable notch. It runs on Apple’s A12 Bionic processor and has near 3000mAh battery.
It has a single 12-megapixel with f/1.8 aperture and a 7-megapixel front camera with f/2.2 aperture. It was launched at a $749 price tag for its entry-level model of 64GB.
And now, it’s dropped by at least 15-20% and retails from $599. Below prices are the refurbished rates of iPhone XR offered by Apple directly;
- 64GB variant for $499 (down from $599)
- 128GB variant for $539 (down from $649)
- 256GB variant for $629 (down from $749).
While the 64GB and 128GB models are still on sale now, the 256GB model was stopped by Apple since last year. But, this refurbished option gives you the chance to get one. Apple said these handsets are thoroughly inspected, tested, cleaned, and repackaged with all necessary accessories like chargers and manuals, just like new.
Limited at Some
Though refurbished, product coming directly from Apple means, they’re deemed to be genuine. While you can select the desired storage variants between 64GB, 128GB or 256GB models, you may be limited at color picking. Being refurbished, you can get only selected variants.
Under this, you can get the 128GB variant in all colors (Red/Yellow/Black/White), but 64GB variant in Black/Yellow and 256GB variant in the only Black. Prices of these refurbished goods are slashed by further 15% at least from current new handsets. And being sold from Apple means, they level with new handsets, more or less.
Moreover, you’d still get a year-long warranty from Apple on these refurbished models, thus safe. If interested, you can get Apple’s additional Care+ support for an extra cost. But wait, these refurbished deals are only for US customers. So if you’re interested, buy it here: Refurbished iPhone XR
