iPhone 8 Plus price history
Apple originally launched the iPhone 8 Plus in 2017 for $799 for 64GB and $949 for 256GB. One year later, there was an iPhone 8 Plus price drop to $699 for 64GB and $849 for 256GB. Then, alongside the launch of the iPhone 11, Apple officially retired the 256GB iPhone 8 Plus, introducing a new 128GB model in its stead. This was accompanied by an iPhone 8 Plus price drop to $549 for 64GB and $599 for 128GB. The iPhone 8 Plus was discontinued shortly after, coinciding with the release of the iPhone SE 2020 in April 2020.
While Apple’s price cuts were well received by consumers, you can get a much better deal by shopping on Swappa. Here’s how prices stack up for all the storage sizes:
Is the iPhone 8 Plus worth it in 2021?
Originally announced alongside the smaller iPhone 8 and iPhone X, the iPhone 8 Plus offers several improvements over the previous year’s iPhone 7 Plus such as wireless and fast charging, an improved True Tone display, and enhanced performance with its updated A11 Bionic chip.
The iPhone 8 Plus can still keep up with the best of smartphones today — and it’s a familiar experience for those who prefer an iPhone with a fingerprint reader and physical home button. Plus, it’s hard to deny the value, making the iPhone 8 Plus still worth buying in 2020.
Just be aware that the iPhone 8 Plus was one of the first iPhones to incorporate an all-glass back. This makes it a bit more fragile than previous generations, so we recommend picking up a Used Phone Protection Plan for just a few bucks a month.
