How much is the iPhone 7 Plus worth?
The iPhone 7 Plus was originally announced on September 7, 2016, and it arrived for sale on September 16, 2016. The iPhone 7 Plus is part of the 10th generation of the iPhone lineup, which also includes the iPhone 7.
Apple released the iPhone 7 Plus with three options for storage, 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB. The iPhone 7 Plus launch MSRP was $769 for the 32GB model. The 128GB and 256GB models were priced at $869 and $969, respectively.
The table below shows what you can expect to get if you sell or trade-in an iPhone 7 Plus in April 2012.
|Apple iPhone 7||$158 (average)||Up to $90||Up to $70|
|Apple iPhone 7 Plus||$255 (average)||Up to $130||Up to $120|
As you likely noticed, the trade-in prices are considerably lower as compared to sale prices. Trading a phone in with Apple or Best Buy can be convenient, but you are trading value for convenience. Not to mention, the trade-in process often takes longer, and in the end, you end up with a gift card that can be used with a single retail store.
In regards to the prices shown in the table, the Swappa price is an average for all iPhone 7 Plus listings. This includes models listed in Mint, Good, and Fair conditions, and models with 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB of storage space. Or in other words, your final sale price may be higher or lower than the average based on the condition and storage space of the iPhone 7 Plus you are selling.
The Apple trade-in price is an “up to” situation, which means that is the most money you can expect to get — even if you are trading a Mint condition phone with 256GB of storage space. The Best Buy trade-in price is based on a model in Good condition with 256GB of storage and is noted as being an “estimate” so the value could change.
Sell your iPhone 7 Plus on Swappa
As we’ve shown so far, you stand to get more money when you sell your phone. This is somewhat of an obvious statement, but the more money you get from selling your iPhone 7 Plus — the more money that you can put towards your new smartphone.
Swappa is an active marketplace and the iPhone 7 Plus is regularly amongst the top ten best-selling phones.
