Looking to upgrade your old iPhone but don’t want to shell out more than a thousand bucks just for a smartphone? Well, you’re in luck. Apple is now selling refurbished iPhone X handsets for much lower prices than on the market, almost 14 months since its original release in 2017.
The prices start at $769 for the 64GB variant and $899 for the 256GB. That’s a solid 15-some percent of savings, considering that the original and brand new iPhone X starts at $899 for the 64GB variant and $1049 for the 256GB variant. And unlike buying from a dealership or buying secondhand from someone else, the refurbished iPhone handsets have all been thoroughly tested and repackaged before being shipped out to buyers. Each handset also comes with one year of Apple’s standard warranty.
Two versions of the device are available. The 64GB variant costs $769, while the 256GB version costs $899. Sure, you’ll probably be able to snatch a used one cheaper, but don’t forget that refurbished iPhones are tested and repackaged, and they come with one year of Apple’s standard warranty.
Refurbished iPhone X models are also available in the UK, at £769 and £899, respectively. Both variants were still available in Apple’s U.S. and UK store at writing time.
Those prices certainly aren’t cheap, but they are a solid discount from the iPhone X’s list price, which is $899 and $1,049, respectively. With the iPhone X, you get a phone that’s visually near-identical to the iPhone XS, and also packs dual rear cameras, a notched screen and Apple’s Face ID tech. Of course, you’re missing out on Apple’s latest smartphone chip and numerous other features, but the X is still a very capable device.
