Apple iPhone XR 64GB Black Refurbished - Tips & Tricks

Frequently asked questions for the Apple iPhone XR Refurbished

  • Why is the microphone or speaker on my Apple iPhone XR Refurbished not working?


    If you have bought this device new, it may appear that the phone's speaker and/or microphone is not working. For example, you may not be able to hear the other party on the phone. This is because this model comes with a protective foil around it. The foil also covers the loudspeaker and microphone, making it seem as if these parts are not working properly. Remove the foil from the front and back to be able to make good use of your phone.

  • While calling, I see a blinking pixel in my Apple iPhone XR Refurbished display, what is this?


    Some phones have the front camera and proximity sensor in the display. The proximity sensor flashes as soon as you bring your phone closer to your ear. It then looks as if you have a dead pixel in the display.

    That flashing white pixel is not a dead pixel but the proximity sensor that does its job of turning the screen off while calling to prevent unintended touching.

  • My device has water damage, is this covered by the warranty?


    As a rule, water damage to any electronic equipment is not covered by the warranty. This is because water damage falls under user damage. The manufacturer cannot give a guarantee on this, because they cannot influence the use of the appliance.

    Many devices, such as smartphones, smartwatches, and fitness trackers, have a watertightness certificate indicated by a code, such as IP68 or 5ATM. Water damage with these certified waterproof devices is also not covered by the warranty. This is because the waterproof seal of your device may be subject to wear and tear due to normal use. So always try to prevent your device from getting wet, even if it is waterproof.

  • What is Siri, what can I use it for, and how do I turn it off on my Apple iPhone XR Refurbished?


    Siri is a digital assistant for users of Apple's iOS operating system. Since the launch of iOS 5 in 2011, Siri has been integrated into the operating system. Since then, the application has been available on all Apple devices running iOS 5 or higher. You can have Siri perform various tasks on your iPhone or iPad. For example, the application can search for nice restaurants or reserve a table somewhere. You can also send text messages by voice or perform searches, for example. Siri is based on various search engines, such as Google, Yahoo!, and Bing. The application also reads newspapers and other (news) websites in order to provide information to the user. You can ask Siri questions about many different subjects and you will almost always get a (reasonably) accurate answer. Siri has grown considerably since its introduction and now also provides unsolicited information about, for example, travel time from work to home, appointments, and suggestions for nice restaurants in your area.

    If you do not want to use the application, you can turn Siri off. You can do this easily via the settings. In the settings you navigate to "general" and then to "Siri". You can deactivate the function there by tapping the slider.
