Apple will soon forget about the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus

Apple скоро забудет про iPhone 8 и iPhone 8 Plus

In the online Apple store, in the Department of “remanufactured products”, the addition. It is very good without it to the range Monday, January 20, added both variations of the iPhone XS. Restored (with new batteries), complete with one year guarantee, externally and internally – as new. Even better new, as identified in the process of operation problems when the restoration pay special attention. How and quality.

In the Russian Federation, as in most countries, this division at the online Apple store there. The level of presence in a specific country or region is determined by a number of factors, but in Russia, to a certain point, the appearance of this service was a matter of time. About this little known, although this information was never secret – Apple was considered our most promising market in Eastern Europe, it grew rapidly and to the highest possible level of presence (to Apple retail Store and provide a full set of services and services) remained practically nothing. Ever restored your iPhone, Mac and iPad and everything can be bought here. But that “someday” will not come soon.

This July, perhaps Apple will just go. Enough of that: with some stretch to assume that the recovered iPhone XS/XS Max, the first “new” iPhone 2020. Judging by the fact that they went on sale, a lot of them. For 2018 and 2019, for various reasons, hundreds of thousands of iPhone XS/XS, Max was returned to Apple, customers or service centers. The main trouble of this “failed” series was their price, they have themselves to serious claims was not. Used iPhone XS/XS, Max and is given in more or less decent, can be bought on the secondary market, but that’s another story: Apple has incomparably greater possibilities.

Restored iPhone XS iPhone XS Max

Visitors online store offered the same XS and XS Max, and in September 2018 in the same configurations and the same three colors (dark gray, silver and gold). System-on-chip Apple A12 Bionic, with 6-core CPU with a maximum clock frequency of 2.49 GHz, 4-core graphics processor, Apple G11P and much more advanced (compared to Apple Bionic A11) neural processor. This system-on-chip was born almost a year and a half ago, she’s not “tearing to shreds” the best of the competitors, but still occupies a worthy place among them. LPDDR4X 4 GB, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac with 2&215;2 MIMO, Bluetooth 5.0. It is a decent machine especially considering the price reduction.

The iPhone XS – OLED display with a diagonal of 5.8 inches (14,7 cm), with a resolution of 2436 x 1125 pixels, 458 pixels per inch (180,3 pixel per centimeter). Size, thickness, weight, feel in hand – almost the same as the iPhone 11 Pro. To distinguish XS from iPhone iPhone 11 Pro, you need to look. Because at least 99% expensive smartphones are “live” in their cases, they are almost indistinguishable from one another. Configuration iPhone XS differ in the volume is soldered to the motherboard flash memory and price. XS 64 GB flash memory is in the Department of “remanufactured products” of $ 799, $ 200 less than in his first life. XS 256 GB 829 USD (1 049), XS 512 GB – 999 (1 249). All mentioned prices – “underlying”, excluding taxes and fees.

According to the results of market research conducted in late summer and early fall of 2019, to purchase smartphones, which price more than $ 1,000, finished just 10% of the US population that could afford it. It is a psychological barrier that in 2018, crashed Apple hopes to conquer the market. Beyond this barrier had only a 64 GB configuration, which provided buyers almost was not interested. Judging by the sales of the iPhone Pro 11, law 10%, but still should be noted – if the price of XS with 256 and 512 GB of flash memory declined in the summer of 2019 (this was not possible, but let’s say), the drop in iPhone sales would not be so serious.

OLED display iPhone XS Max is no worse than its smaller brother, the diagonal of 6.5 inches (16.5 cm), resolution 2688х1242 pixel is the same of 458 pixels per inch (180,3 pixel per centimeter). From iPhone 11 Pro Max if both smartphone covers, XS Max simply indistinguishable. Restored XS Max with 64 GB of flash memory cost 799 dollars (instead of $ 999), 256 GB – 929 (1 149), and with 512 GB – 1 099 (1 349).

What awaits the iPhone in 2020

It is not good to exaggerate, but in the headers – you can. The assortment of repaired and discounted iPhone, you can guess Apple’s plans, nothing more – but when these guesses correspond to the predictions of “analysts” and are not contrary to established practices of Apple, they look very convincing. Until 20 January, the list we offer you a discounted iPhone of yesteryear, grey font (as unavailable) are iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, and not at all XR was no iPhone, no iPhone XS/XS Max.

According to forecasts, iPhone 8/8 Plus, almost in March of this year, will leave the product line – they will replace the iPhone 9, Apple A13 inside. iPhone XR until at least September of this year, not going anywhere – and besides, he’s still one of the leaders of sales. But the fact that this range was not iPhone XS iPhone XS Max, a little alarmed and caused slight confusion. These models are clearly not the favorite Apple, they (or rather, those who wrote the technical requirements for their development) led to the defeat and caused damage to Apple’s reputation, but nonetheless, they sold millions of copies – and some of them went back to Apple. You have to be above that, business is business. 20 Jan iPhone XS/XS, Max appeared in this list.

In the online Apple store is another great Department, the Department of sales. They say that our citizens are famous for unique love freebies – do not believe. This is common to all descendants of apes, and no one knows where her love is stronger. And rightly so: if you have the opportunity to buy something cheap, why pay more? Now in this Department, actively sell the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Free warehouses to remaining on them “sevens.” But in informed circles are convinced that the next version of iOS will not work on smartphones with Apple’s A10 Fusion, and with less than 3 GB of RAM. But as in any drop of honey must be a barrel of tar, warn that forecasts are not always realized.
