Even the latest iPhone will not stay new forever. Like death and taxes, there are a few certainties in life and one of those is Apple launching a new iPhone every year. The new iPhones are typically announced in September, with Apple unveiling all sorts of new software features to go along with the new hardware. But that’s only one part of the iPhone story.
Whenever a new iPhone model is announced, Apple tends to lower the price on previous generation iPhones to help keep them enticing for those that don’t need the latest bells and whistles. Of course, those who don’t want to pay top dollar for features they don’t need also have another option, which is to look towards the gently used market.
The iPhone 7 Plus is no longer sold directly by Apple, but you can easily find cheap iPhone 7 Plus deals on Swappa. Keep reading to learn more about the iPhone 7 Plus price drop history.

Apple iPhone 7 Plus price drop history
Apple originally released the iPhone 7 Plus in September 2016. At launch, the iPhone 7 Plus was priced at $769. The iPhone 7 Plus launched along with the iPhone 7, and as the “Plus” in the name would suggest — it was the bigger of the two smartphones. It was also the more expensive of the two smartphones. But while the original launch price was close to $800 (with sales tax), you shouldn’t worry about that now. And because you can easily get a cheap iPhone 7 Plus in 2021 — you also don’t have to settle for the lower-end model with only 32GB of internal storage space.

When is the best time to buy an iPhone 7 Plus?
Usually the best time to buy a brand new iPhone is after fresh new models are announced in September. Buying a gently used iPhone just after a new model is released generally means more available inventory, which can lead to lower prices. This is because some people sell their current iPhone as a way to (partially) fund an upgrade to a newer model. Of course, with prices for the 128GB iPhone 7 Plus hovering just above the $200 price point — now is the best time to buy an iPhone 7 Plus without having to wait for the possibility of a better deal. So why wait? Pick up a cheap iPhone 7 Plus on Swappa today.
When it comes to gently used models, prices are gradually falling every month. That means there’s never really a bad time to buy an iPhone 7 Plus on Swappa since you’ll always be getting the best deal (especially when compared to new retail prices).
