Highlights
  • A rare iPhone 11 Pro unit has an off-centre Apple logo on the back.
  • This rare iPhone was sold for a price of $2,700, which is almost thrice the original price.
  • This kind of error is very rare, almost 1 in 100 million.

An iPhone 11 Pro with a rare mistake was recently sold for nearly three times its original price. The phone in question has a printing error that’s rare, probably 1 in 100 million, according to a tweet by Internal Archives. Apple has a strict quality assurance policy, like most other brands, and you may live your entire life without seeing such an error. The Internal Archives posted images of the iPhone 11 Pro, which has an off-centre Apple logo. This phone was launched two years ago and was priced around $999 on launch. 

iPhone 11 Pro with a design flaw sells for thousands of dollars!

The iPhone 11 Pro is a premium phone, so it’s very rare to see printing errors on one. However, a one-off iPhone was sold online for $2,700 (approx. Rs 2 lakh) because of an error made by the design department where the iPhone was being manufactured. This iPhone has an off-centre Apple logo at the back, as seen in the image below. 

Those obsessive about symmetry will have a tough time looking at this picture, but the phone did turn out to be a good investment to the owner or whoever made the sale. The logo is not only off-centre, but it’s also slightly tilted upwards. It surely is very rare as you don’t see this happen very often. In fact, the chances of you seeing this in the open are almost none. The logo on the iPhone 11 Pro and newer devices are etched on the glass back. Someone must’ve moved the panel while it was being etched. 

The iPhone 11 Pro has an Apple A13 Bionic chipset, 4GB RAM, up to 512GB of storage, a 5.8-inch OLED Super Retina display, triple rear cameras, a 12-megapixel selfie camera, FaceID, and a 3,046mAh battery with 18W fast charging support. Apple has discontinued the iPhone 11 series in India, but you can still buy them at good discounted prices from various online/offline resellers.
