Apple has quietly introduced refurbished iPhone 7 and 7 Plus units on its online store. It comes five months after the iPhone 8 and X were introduced and three months after refurbished iPhone 6s units went up for sale. It’s unclear why it took this long to get refurbished 7s on the store, but I guess Apple has its reasons.
As is tradition with refurbished iPhones, they’re a lot cheaper than what you’d pay for a new one. For a 32GB iPhone 7, it’s $499. For 128GB, it’s $589. And for 256GB, it’s $679. As for the iPhone 7 Plus, 32 or 128GB of storage will run you $599 and $689, respectively. Currently, there doesn’t appear to be a 256GB option. A variety of color options are also available.
By paying for a refurbished iPhone 7, you get a new battery and aluminum body with the same internals that originally shipped with the device. If you’re looking to save a little cash, opting for a refurbished model may be the way to go.
