While the rest of the internet is buzzing about the iPhone 8 and the iPhone X (that’s pronounced “iPhone Ten”), you might consider something else: the old iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. As is typical in September, the announcement of the new iPhone models coincides with a drop in the price for the current model. The iPhone 7 price drop brings it to $549 for a 32 GB model or $649 for a 128 GB model. That’s about $100 off the original price and a cool $150 less than the new iPhone 8.
The iPhone 7 Plus goes for $669 for a 32 GB model and $769 for a $128 GB model.
Of course, it’s a little less exciting to get anything less than the latest and greatest. But I’ll tell you what…
I have always been one or two generations behind on my iPhone and I’ve never felt paralyzed by FOMO. In fact, I have no intention of upgrading my iPhone 6S unless it breaks (which, given my track record, is actually pretty likely). I’ve been feeling less and less compelled to get the latest iPhone model as the years go on.
Haters will say that it’s due to a lack of innovation on Apple’s part. But I won’t go that far. The thing is: an iPhone 6S is still a really fantastic phone. It works perfectly and the camera is stunning. Oh, and it has a headphone jack.
If you have an iPhone 5 or earlier, then it’s worth considering an upgrade to an iPhone 7. It’ll feel like night and day, but you’ll be spending a whole lot less than those clamoring for an iPhone 8.
What do you think? Which iPhone model do you currently have? Would you consider upgrading to an iPhone 7 or an iPhone 8?
