There is now a way of getting the best selling phone of 2019 cheaper, MacRumors reports. Apple is selling refurbished iPhone XR’s on the Apple Store and its about $100 less than a brand new model. The company assures the refurbishing process makes the device perform almost the same as an un-used phone.
You can get a 64GB refurbished iPhone XR for $499. The 128GB refurbished XR is $539, which is $110 less than the $649 Apple charges for a new one. Also, the 256GB variant, which Apple discontinued last year, can be bought refurbished for $629. All devices though are only available in a limited selection of colors.
Of course, you can still buy a brand new iPhone cheaper than the refurbished XR. The iPhone SE starts at $399, but it doesn’t come close to the XR’s performances.
With every refurbished iPhone Apple sells, it also offers a one year warranty, as well as a new battery, and new outer shell. The company also promises the phones are tested to ensure they’re working and it repackages them into a brand new box complete with accessories and cables.
