The iPhone XS and XS Max have been officially refurbished by Apple for customers who want to use an iPhone but the $999 seems too pricey.
Either of these refurbished iPhones can be gotten straight from the company’s online store in the US. The refurbished iPhone XS starts at $699 – with 64GB of storage. For the 256GB model, the price is $829, while the one with 512GB of storage is going for $999.
For people interested in the iPhone XS Max, the 64GB model is $799, the one with 256GB goes for $929, and the 512GB version is priced at $1,099. Apple assures that all refurbished iPhones are thoroughly inspected, tested, cleaned, and repackaged in a new white box, with all manuals and accessories. You also get a brand new battery and outer shell, which means it’s basically impossible to distinguish between a refurb and a new device.
