You can still buy the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus from Apple's online clearance store
Given how similar the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max look to their predecessors, it wasn't exactly shocking to see last year's iPhone XS and XS Max discontinued shortly after Apple's big product launch event yesterday. At the same time, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus were definitely getting a bit long in the tooth, so we're obviously not surprised that the 2016 generation had to go as well once 2019 variants entered the arena.

But technically, Apple's three-year-old handsets haven't gone the way of the dodo yet, fetching $399 and up on the company's clearance website. These aren't refurbished units we're talking about here, mind you, but rather leftover inventory in brand-new condition, with a standard 1-year warranty included, available in both 32 and 128GB storage configurations.

Curiously enough, while you can currently pick up the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus in your choice of unlocked and carrier-specific versions for use across all big four wireless networks, the only color option available is "jet black." Perhaps an even more serious inconvenience is the pricing structure, which very slightly undercuts the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus that you can still buy from Apple's main e-store.


At $399 and $449 respectively, the 32 and 128 gig iPhone 7 are a measly 50 bucks cheaper than the newer and faster iPhone 8 in 64 and 128GB variants. Meanwhile, the iPhone 7 Plus costs $499 and $549 with 32 and 128GB storage space respectively, which doesn't compare very favorably to the $549 and $599 price tags of the 64 and 128 gig iPhone 8 Plus with a dual camera system on its back.

Of course, it might be a good idea to keep an eye out for prospective iPhone 7 "clearance" discounts, which could substantially sweeten the deal of these iOS 13-supporting handsets widely expected to also get an iOS 14 update next year.

Hah! $400 for an iPhone 7? What a joke. You can buy a iPhone X for that price. Why pay that much for a 7? and since the iPhone 8 is now about $400, why pay thaty for an even older model? Apple has such terrible greedy pricing. Thank God for 3rd party sellers. A brand new iPhone 7 on eBay is roughly $275-$300. The iPhone 7 Plus is $400-$500, which on eBay is excessive, considering you can get a Refurbished iPhone X for $500. Wow, Apple is crazy. Even with slipping sales, they still choose to do greedy pricing to get as much as they can for each sell. Thank God for Android.
