In a few days (this week, in fact), Apple would be offering its users iPhone XRs for free. For the moment, however, we do not yet know which countries will be affected by this new welcome program. MacRumors seems only to know that the United States would obviously be in the game, as well as others ”regions”Which are not specified by the source. Let us add that this one is also generally very reliable when it comes to sharing unpublished rumors about headed products.
In reality, as we can imagine, there will be some criteria to be entitled to this iPhone XR. This will only be lent to customers who come to have their mobile repaired in the Apple Store and whose troubleshooting process is long. The precise duration of eligible operations is also not known at the moment. We know that it is not uncommon to see some technicians requesting several weeks of waiting, especially since the coronavirus crisis has resumed its rights on certain continents.
This initiative is more than beneficial for end consumers. Take the case of a writer working on a 2018 MacBook Pro whose famous butterfly keyboard has been popular for over a year. By going to the Apple Store, the Genius Bar tells him that the replacement program is indeed required … But also that it takes three weeks to recover the repaired computer! Without providing a spare Mac, this situation is obviously more than problematic for any professional. We have experienced it ourselves at iPhon.fr, where article writing is regularly slowed down by dysfunctional machines. It is even still the case.
