Every year Apple unveils a shiny new iPhone, gushing over all of its new features. Cramming the latest hardware into the device, the cost of the iPhone has been steadily going up in recent years but we also see older models drop in price, providing consumers with a more affordable option in Apple’s lineup.
Although all the latest bells and whistles are enough to make most fans line up for city blocks, not everyone needs or has room in their budget for the latest iPhone. For many folks, the previous generation will suffice, saving them hundreds of dollars by staying a generation or two behind Apple’s yearly release cycle.
Buying a brand new iPhone 7 from Apple is always an option but you’ll find a much better deal when buying a used iPhone 7 on Swappa. Don’t believe us? Let’s take a look at current iPhone prices on Swappa so you can see exactly how much you can save.
The iPhone 7 was first unveiled in 2016 at the introductory price of $650 (32GB). In 2017, with the unveiling of the new iPhone 8 and iPhone X, Apple dropped the retail price of the iPhone 7 to $549 for the 32GB model and $649 for the 128GB model. Unfortunately, this was also the year the 256GB model was discontinued.
The iPhone 7 price dropped again in 2018 with the release of the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR. The current retail price of an iPhone 7 is $449 (32GB) or $549 (128GB) from Apple — but you can save lots more when shopping for a used iPhone 7 on Swappa.
The current used price for an iPhone 7 (32GB) on Swappa is hovering around $286, while the iPhone 7 (128GB) can be found for $322, and $352 for the discontinued 256GB model. That’s a little over 36% off the full retail price and a heck of a great deal considering you can easily buy two used 32GB models on Swappa for less than the price of a new 128GB.
