[REVIEW] : The price of the iPhone 13 in vertiginous fall at Rakuten

Equipped with Ceramic Shield glass, the screen of the Apple iPhone 13 is more resistant than ever. Solid against shocks, this smartphone is also against humidity thanks to its advanced waterproofing standard. The Apple iPhone 13 has a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display. OLED, this screen offers more realistic images than ever before with accurate colors, crisp text and comfortable programs for the eyes. The brand has developed a completely new architecture and rotates the lenses by 45 degrees. This aims to insert the best dual camera to date into the housing, with the largest sensor the firm has ever equipped the wide-angle. Photos are even more accurate. Especially at night, when the image remains fixed when you move, thanks to optical image stabilization. The latest Apple A15 Bionic 6-core chip brings many advantages to the phone (intelligence, optimization, power, 5G). The autonomy of this iPhone 13 is longer thanks to its massive battery and better energy management.

It is at a low price that one of Apple’s smartphones is displayed on Amazon. The iPhone 12 usually sold at 859 euros benefits from a 10% discount. It is thus available at 776 euros!

Apple products are all very popular. Among the essentials to have, we can mention the iPhone. Each year, the Apple firm unveils a new range of iPhones, with more or less significant new features. If you are looking for a new smartphone, the iPhone 12 is a model to consider. Especially when the smartphone takes advantage of a nice discount on Amazon. Offered at 859 euros, it is currently displayed with a 10% discount, i.e. only 776 euros. Even if it is not the last iPhone range, this model remains just as powerful.

The iPhone 12 is discounted on the popular Amazon site

The iPhone 12 is a smartphone with a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR OLED display. The display features Ceramic Shield glass, the toughest of any smartphone. The unique performance of the iPhone 12 is due to the A14 Bionic chip designed and manufactured by Apple. The iPhone 12 has the IP68 protection rating. It is therefore resistant to splashes, water (up to 6 meters deep for 30 minutes max) and dust. This smartphone has a dual 12-megapixel camera, with a wide-angle sensor and another ultra wide-angle. We find in particular the Portrait mode with bokeh effect, the portrait lighting with six effects or the night mode. The iPhone 12 is unlocked using Face ID technology, which also allows you to pay or download applications. Finally, with a battery life of up to 65 hours in audio playback, the iPhone 12 will follow you throughout the day.

No need to buy an iPhone X if Face ID is broken

Apple products can sometimes be a little temperamental when it comes to repairing them safely. The manufacturer has a habit of ingeniously solder some components between them, so as to invalidate the guarantee in the event of delicate handling. Which of course does not please consumers or French regulators.

To improve, Apple therefore chose at the end of last year to allow changing screens on iPhone 13 without disabling Face ID, which was not always possible before. And if that wasn’t enough, here is another mobile from the brand also entitled to a gesture of this type: it is the iPhone X, which arrived in 2017.

Only in authorized stores

In theory, this should therefore be beneficial for customers, especially in terms of price and without having subscribed to an AppleCare+ offer (damage insurance) upstream. What’s more, this is good news for the planet ensuring less electronic waste on a large scale.

How much does it cost ?

In France, the iPhone X has not been available in stores for a long time: the device was withdrawn from the shelves less than a year after its release, when its successor arrived. However, it is still possible to have it repaired in the Apple Store, subject to 591 euros without AppleCare+. Either more expensive than for the iPhone 12 or a refurbished iPhone X…

Apple: it is finally possible to repair Face ID in the event of a breakdown (even on the iPhone X)

The Face ID module is extremely effective, but its repair is tedious. Apple will finally be able to replace it at a lower cost on all compatible smartphones, from the iPhone X generation.

The Face ID module is one of the great advantages of smartphones and tablets made in Apple, but it was better not to have a problem with it. Indeed, a malfunction or breakage has long resulted in a pure and simple replacement of the mobile, for lack of being able to change the TrueDepth camera easily. Replacing the smartphone was particularly costly for the customer, up to €641 for a Pro Max type model (flat rate applied by Apple).

Repair rather than replace

At the beginning of March 2022, the Cupertino company announced the possibility of replacing the module in question directly from the Apple Store or an authorized after-sales service. Repairers will be able to access the TrueDepth sensor without having to replace everything. Excellent news that unfortunately did not apply to all of the brand’s devices, the iPad Pro and iPhone X being excluded from the program.

Apple and its authorized repairers can now replace Face ID on all iPhone models that have it, even the first of them. iPhone X owners will therefore be able to extend the life of their device in the event of a Face ID system failure. The cost of the replacement is still fixed at 179 €. A price certainly high, but the return of the smartphone cost 591 € before.

This program was born all the same four and a half years after the start of the marketing of the smartphone in question, which is a little late for the customers concerned. It is therefore hoped that it will be extended to the iPad Pro, released more recently.

Apple: the white iPhone 12 available for less than 670 euros!

It incorporates the A14 Bionic chip designed by Apple and one of the fastest on smartphones! The iPhone 12 offers a dual camera with a wide-angle sensor and another ultra wide-angle.
