Apple Reduces Price on "Older" Flagships

iphone 7 display
Apple, today, unveiled this year's much awaited iPhone models-- the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and the iPhone 8 Plus. Without a doubt, these devices look to be pretty promising, especially with the specs available on each one.

This now leaves a question on what happens to its predecessors, the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and the iPhone SE.

Just like it had done in the past, Apple has reduced the price of last year's flagship models to give way to the new iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus. Starting today, the prices of Apple devices now look like this:

  • iPhone 7 - starts at $549
  • iPhone 7 Plus - starts at $669
  • iPhone 6s - starts at $449
  • iPhone 6s Plus - starts at $549
  • iPhone SE - starts at $349

Even though Apple had brought down the price of these devices, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are still considerably great smartphones today. Especially with the technologies Apple packed into each device, these two smartphones can still compete with some of the new models being released today.

If you've been holding back on buying one of these smartphones because of their price, now just might be the time to invest in one. The prices on this list are for the 32GB configurations. If you want to increase the storage to 128GB, you'd have to add $100 more to the price. At this price, you'd also be able to get your hands on the Jet Black variant, which is still exclusive to the 128GB model.

    1. You are right, the 6 and 6 Plus are EOL. The post has been corrected.

  2. just like honda and nike, apple products are highly overrated and grossly overpriced. closest thing to a legal cult that exists today is the legion of apple fanboys/girls that spend 5-7x the actual value of a phone just to get the name imprinted on the back.. really, really sad.

    1. Objective consumer product reviews disagree with you entirely on your claims about Apple and Honda.

      You get what you pay for.

      "the legion of apple fanboys/girls that spend 5-7x the actual value of a phone just to get the name imprinted on the back."

      Your claim would be true if people were paying $4500 for iPhones, but that does not happen. Instead, people pay the fair market value for iPhones, which is right in line with the iPhone's Android flagship peers and much more than the mid-line phones and burners which cost fewer bucks, but give much less bang.

      "really, really sad."

      Actually, you sound kind of jealous of those who buy what objective consumer review organizations call the best phones.

    2. iPhones just like iMacs are overpriced but so are the latest Samsung and LG flagships. They're all close to $1k. It just doesn't make sense even if you can afford those prices.

      Delete
    3. People who buy them, however, make the informed decision that it "makes sense" to spend the money on the combination of features and quality found in these products that you simply won't get on the cheaper phones.

    4. I agree that Samsung Note 8 should be availble in Rosegold.

    5. Bixby, you are jealous are you?

    6. As Warren Buffet said, I will buy Apple stock, but never their products, that how I make my billions.And yes you can fool most of the people ALL the time, over and over again.

  3. The iPhone 8 is launching at $700 and $800 for the Plus — both with 64GB of storage space and an optional 256GB available. On the other hand, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus pricing has been cut by $100. The devices are now available starting at $550 and $670, respectively. You can also opt for the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus which has also been cut by an additional $100 since last year’s Apple event. The iPhone 6S is now starting at $450 and the iPhone 6S Plus starting at $550.

  4. What the heck. Why is Best Buy out of new 6ses all of a sudden? So is Target, and so is T-Mobile? Did Apple buy them back overnight??

  5. People always complain about i sheep. If you don't want don't buy it. For those of us who find value in it will buy it. Same as how we don't buy a cheaper ford or chevy and spend a lot on Lexus or Porsche

    1. I know. The guy who complains about better consumer products that cost more because of it is tiresome.

      And yeah, iSheep are real and are pretty silly pesudo-religious people. They are the ones with Apple stickers on the back of their car... and they watched the Holy Event in the St. Steve Cathedral yesterday.

      But iSheep are actually pretty small in number: if you remove the 'Cult of Apple' from the equation, iPhones would still sell in the same numbers just because of the informed decisions of average non-wool-bearing consumers who find iPhone features preferable and have the money to pay for the features and quality.

    2. "non-wool-bearing consumers who find iPhone features preferable and have the money to pay for the features and quality"

      Ha, good one.

      $1000 and you still can't change defaults or sideload apps.

      Meanwhile, any $15 Android burner can do both.

      iPhone's real specialty is speed, power and RAM management.

      Unfortunately, all the "affordable" iPhones have tiny screens that limit what you'll be doing.

      Then there's the "plus sized" Real Man™ models, which boast a usable screen and all the internal horsepower, but they go for such a premium that you can get an even snazzier droid for the same or less.

      Anyway, you'd think Apple's minimalistic, one size fits all approach, which is devoid of customization or innovation, would give their brand a reputation for being the cheap, pseudo-communistic workhorses of the smartphone world.

      You know, because all iPhones are equal but some are more equal than others.

      They also have the economy of scale and the consumer base to back up those margins.

      The problem is, their entire business model is based on selling a brand/lifestyle, which is the thing that makes practical, down to earth droid users cringe.

      That's why everyone calls you folks iSheeple, because you're paying a premium for a gimped product with an inverted dynamic (getting less for more), and then smugly pretending you're not really brand loyalists at heart.

      The fact is, bragging about iPhone's features doesn't make the iPhone less locked down, just like wearing plaid and a cowboy hat doesn't magically turn turn a coastal snowflake into a rugged, all-American mountain man.

      Sometimes things just are what they are, and the iPhone is (and always has been) overpriced.

    3. "Meanwhile, any $15 Android burner can do both.

      And, truth be told, camera and build quality. And more things that I can't think of right now. I can't think of them partially because I DON'T OWN ONE. But I do know the market and the relative features and merits of a wide variety of phone models.

      Face it, that $15 burner might play Gaga tracks on a noisy crowded subway as good as the iPhone X, but when it comes to taking photos, the $15 burner puts out pictures that seem like they are created by a dyspeptic 5 year old using broken crayons and squinting through leftover eclipse goggles.

      But where, oh Mountain Man?

      Samsung puts tiny pipsqueak batteries in theirs out of fear of releasing a third bomb upon the public.

      LG has nothing but terrible customer reports while Apple has pretty great customer reports for service.

      The Motorola flagship costs as much but has a bad camera and the screen peels off after two weeks of use.

      Essential blew it.

      ..... It's getting pretty hard to find a flagship Android phone on the level as the iPhone that gets as much right as Apple gets right with theirs.

  6. The already reduced iphone se 32 gb sold by the prepaids at $129-$199 should be reduced $50 since apple lowered their unlocked version by $50

  7. Any carrier deals that take 200$ or more of these prices, if one commits to their plans?

  8. "Apple, today, unveiled this year's much awaited iPhone models-- the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and the iPhone 8 Plus."

    So what?

    I was more excited about the Blade Z Max.

    Full price iPhones are a non-starter, and the sales/subsidies are laughable.

    The only way to get a decent price on these is to spread the cost around with a payment plan, but then you've got postpaid's greedy tentacles rummaging through your wallet and credit history.

    That, and the phones are the kind of commodity that screams STEAL ME, so you'll have to practically keep it under lock and key to avoid being on the hook for a phone you no longer own.

    At this point, iPhones are more of an obnoxious show of affluence than they are a respectable consumer good, especially when all the cost control and quality of life innovations are taking place on Android.

    Even if money was no object, it's incredibly hard to see the iPhone as being worth it's cost and trade-offs when a modest $100-$250 Android will get the job done just fine.

    1. Lets see, LG X Charge for $1 at Comcast or iPhone X for $1000.....:)

    3. You can unlock any phone with your face.

      It's just not practical.

      Yeah, you will need bandaids afterwards, and you might have a broken nose. if you define "unlock" as including broken in two.

      Reminds me of the old Apple ad campaign for the iPod. It said "Don't steal music".

      It was the silliest thing: it was impossible to involve an iPod (or any MP3 player) in any sort of music theft. Even if you tried to break into a record store at night to burglarize it, you would probably smash the iPod before it put even a crack in the window.

      I'm not even an Apple phone fan, but I'd venture that an iPhone X is worth 1000x the value of these burners.

    6. iPhones cost $200-$300 to manufacture in China. It used to be that you paid twice the actual hardware cost but it looks like that's not good enough anymore.

      Delete
    7. There's a lot more than just manufacturing costs that go into this. Such as quality control which is truly unequaled in the industry, defending against frivolous lawsuits such as those from Qualcomm. And a massive amount of research and development.

  9. The close to or above $1k price tags of the latest iPhones, Galaxies and other flagships prove what we already knew. None of these phones are meant for the prepaid market nor are they meant to be paid for outright. They're priced for the profit generating benefit of the major mobile carriers. No one is expected to fork over $1k in a single transaction. We're expected to pay an ever increasing monthly instalment. The MSRP is just a means to an end designed to justify the increasingly higher phone bills the carriers charge us. Its such a successful business model that even the cable companies are getting into it. Little more than MVNOs themselves, these new mobile carriers offer instalment plans a lot like the major carriers without the costs of building a cellular network. It's no different than people who drive luxury cars like Lexus and Cadillacs. They don't pay $80k upfront, they just lease and get a new car every couple of years. Phones are the new luxury car. Pay a higher monthly instalment and get the latest and greatest. No need to look at the MSRP.

    1. I still don't want to "lease" a phone for $500 a year. Thanks anyhow.

    2. I ran a $900 new Android flagship phone on prepaid for a year. It worked great. I only had to leave prepaid when I needed good economical international roaming.

  10. I will probably upgrade from a refurb iPhone 6 to a refurb iPhone 6S Plus. My refurb iPhone 6 was from FreedomPop. I'll buy the refurb iPhone 6S Plus straight from Apple.
