When consumers bring their phone in for repair at an Apple Store or an Apple Authorized Service Provider, Apple jobs presently provides them with an iPhone as a loaner device. The company is preparing to enhance its loaner program with the iPhone XR, which will replace the existing loaner model, which is an iPhone 8.
Apple will soon supply iPhone XR devices to customers who have to wait a long time to have their iPhone fixed, according to an internal document sent to Apple Store staff and certified technicians (via MacRumors).
If you qualify for a borrowed iPhone right now, Apple will offer you an iPhone 8 — which, by today’s standards, is ancient, as it still has a 4.7-inch display with a home button and the A11 Bionic chip. Face ID, a 6.1-inch edge-to-edge display, Dual-SIM compatibility, and the speedier A12 Bionic CPU are all available on the iPhone XR.
It’s worth mentioning that not every customer jobs will be eligible for a loaner device since the firm takes into account the time it will take to repair the user’s phone. According to Apple, customers who receive the borrowed iPhone must return it within 14 days after the repaired iPhone is ready for pickup.
Before returning the iPhone, the business also requests that users back up and delete all their data. The iPhone XR will be available for loan at Apple Stores and Authorized Providers in the United States and other chosen areas later this week.
