Our iPhone XS Max devices are in excellent aesthetic condition, with minimal signs of wear. All Mobile Tech Lab refurbished iPhones and tablets are sold with a one year warranty, lifetime IMEI guarantee and a guaranteed battery health rating of at least 90%. Purchasing a device from us not only gives you the most competitive pricing in Canada, but our warranty provides you with just as much security as buying a device from a carrier or Apple Store. The XS Max price in Canada has remained stable, especially with the release of the iPhone 11 and iPhone 12, the latter of which is fully 5G enabled.
Is it worth buying an iPhone XS Max in 2022 or 2023?
If you're looking for an affordable upgrade in the 6.5" large format screen size the iPhone XS Max is still a very reliable and affordable phone that has at least a few more years before we can expect the iOS to stop supporting it. It does have an edge to edge OLED display, full glass and aluminum housing as well as great capacity options - 64GB, 256GB and even 512GB for those that need every photo available at all times.
Are refurbished iPhones worth buying?
Every year the new iPhone release has a common $799-$1,500 price tag especially in Canada, and it's been going up without signs of stopping. This has driven a secondary industry in refurbished iPhones which are reconditioned pre-owned devices that are priced very affordably, especially if you're looking for a minor upgrade. At Mobile Tech Lab we refer to these as certified pre-owned which means they have undergone a 65 point function test - including aesthetic condition, and tested for aftermarket parts. Our devices are not bought off Kijiji, fixed and sold. These come direct from carriers and we only end up selling those that meet our quality and aesthetic standards.
Is the iPhone XS Max being discontinued?
The iPhone XS Max is no longer available directly from Apple, as such is the iPhone XS. There is no direct reason from Apple for this, but the logic is that it makes room in the pricing lineup for the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro which start at $699USD and $999USD respectively. On the U.S site iPhone XS Max devices are available as Certified Refurbished starting from $719USD which is just short of $900CAD. For Canadians, we are your best source for full warranty devices in excellent condition at a very competitive price point, especially when compared to investing in a brand new iPhone 13 or 14 device.
Buying an iPhone XS Max in Canada - Pricing & Capacity (64GB vs 256GB vs 512GB)
The price point for this device is a sensitive issue for many people, and that's understandable. Mobile Tech Lab has very aggressive buyback prices for your older phones, whether they are broken or not. We can give you cash or store credit for many devices that carriers may not, which in turn can lead to an even better price on an iPhone XS Max for you the end consumer.
Mobile Tech Lab aims to make buying second hand devices as effortless, transparent and affordable as possible. While there definitely are going to be cost differences across the different GB capacity options - 512GB costing the most, but 256GB also being notably more than 64GB - we aim to have the most competitive prices in Canada, and you can expect us to lower our prices to get you the best deal possible given the market options. Finally, if you do end up getting a device, and should you end up with a damaged device due to an accidental fall, we do offer iPhone XS Max repair services locally at all of our Manitoba locations.
Is the iPhone XS Max Cheap in Canada?
The iPhone XS Max is a peculiar device - while it has dropped in price in secondary markets, the used iPhone 11 and other newer devices tend to still be a better value due to their sales volume, and the fact you'd be paying marginally more for a better phone. With that said, the 2018 release does stand out due to its 512GB storage option as well as timeless functionality and also the fact it refuses to be deprecated by Apple. As time goes on, we can expect the price to drop, however as phones like the iPhone 12 become better values in terms of refurbished or pre-owned options it may not be the best phone to look into right away.
