iPhone 8 Plus price history
When the iPhone 8 Plus first came out in 2017, the original price was $799 (64GB) and $949 (256GB). A year later, we saw Apple drop the iPhone 8 Plus price down to $699 (64GB) and $849 (256GB).
Last year, with the release of the iPhone 11, Apple officially retired the 256GB iPhone 8 Plus from its lineup, introducing a new 128GB model in its stead. Of course prices were discounted yet again, with Apple eventually selling the iPhone 8 Plus for $549 (64GB) and $599 (128GB) before it was removed completely with the release of the iPhone SE (2020) in April.

Is the iPhone 8 Plus worth it in 2021?
Originally announced alongside the smaller iPhone 8 and iPhone X, the iPhone 8 Plus offered several improvements over the previous year’s iPhone 7 Plus. Most notably wireless and fast charging, improved True Tone display that changes the color temp of the display based on ambient lighting, and enhanced graphical performance thanks to an updated A11 Bionic processor.
The iPhone 8 Plus can still keep up with the best of smartphones today and is a familiar experience for those who prefer an iPhone with a fingerprint reader over Face ID. It’s hard to deny the value you get with the iPhone 8 Plus, making it still worth buying in 2020.
When it comes to durability, the iPhone 8 Plus one of the first iPhones to introduce an all-glass back. This was a requirement for wireless charging, although it makes the iPhone 8 Plus much more fragile than previous generation iPhones. Because of this, we recommend anyone buying a used iPhone 8 Plus to also consider picking up a Used Phone Protection Plan.
The Protection Plan covers the phone against accidental damage, so you won’t have to worry about destroying the back glass in the event of a fall.
