    Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max, 256GB, Midnight Green, Fully Unlocked (Renewed)

    • Fully unlocked and compatible with any carrier of choice (e.g. AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, US-Cellular, Cricket, Metro, etc.).
    • The device does not come with headphones or a SIM card. It does include a charger and charging cable that may be generic, in which case it will be UL or Mfi (Made for iPhone) Certified.
    • Inspected and guaranteed to have minimal cosmetic damage, which is not noticeable when the device is held at arms length.
    • Successfully passed a full diagnostic test which ensures like-new functionality and removal of any prior-user personal information.
    • Tested for battery health and guaranteed to have a minimum battery capacity of 80%.

    If Apple’s frontline customer service can’t help you solve your issue, it’s time to take your iPhone X to an Apple Store (if one is close by) or your local carrier store.

    Schedule a Genius Bar appointment and have them run diagnostics on your device to see if they can pinpoint the problem. Your iPhone X is under warranty so they might offer you a replacement if it’s a serious defect.

    How to Downgrade Your iPhone X

    Downgrading to an older version of iOS 14 isn’t a guaranteed way to solve problems, but it has worked for many people in the past.

    Apple typically keeps the downgrade loophole open for a few weeks after it releases a new version of iOS so you’ll need to move quickly if you want to drop back down.

    If you’re new to the iPhone and iOS, take a look at our guide to downgrading. It could help.

    What’s Next

    If your iPhone X is having a difficult time on iOS 14.1, iOS 14.0.1 or iOS 14.0, keep an eye out for new software.
