Staying a generation or two behind the latest iPhone releases is a smart way for buyers on a budget to stay in Apple’s ecosystem, while saving hundreds of dollars on a cheap, yet functional iPhone. It’s these people holding onto older iPhones like the iPhone 6 who may find the iPhone 7 Plus the most appealing.
So what’s new in the iPhone 7 Plus? Well, new features for the iPhone 7 Plus include IP67 water resistance, which can handle full water submersion for up to 30 minutes. This is complimented by a touch sensitive home button (instead of a physical button) that’s faster than ever at reading fingerprints. Unfortunately, this was also the year Apple removed the headphone jack, which has been replaced by a Lightning adapter (dongle) you’ll have to use with wired headphones.
Still, with newer features like water resistance and a dual camera system for 2X zoom, the iPhone 7 Plus is definitely worth it in 2019, especially given the low price point. To better help illustrate these savings, let’s look at current the iPhone 7 Plus prices on Swappa.

iPhone 7 Plus Price History
(Average prices for an iPhone 7 Plus on Swappa)
The iPhone 7 Plus was first unveiled on September 16th, 2016, at the introductory price of $769. In 2017, with the arrival of the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X, we saw Apple drop the price of the iPhone 7 Plus down to $669 (32GB) and $769 (128GB). Sadly, this was also the year that Apple discontinued the 256GB iPhone 7 Plus, saving the higher storage configuration for their newer devices instead.
It wasn’t until 2019, with the release of the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, Apple finally discontinued the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus entirely. Today, the only way to buy the iPhone 7 Plus is either refurbished, or you can save more money by going with a gently used model on Swappa.
