If you’re looking to buy a new iPhone without remortgaging your house, an iPhone 8 price cut might be just what you’ve been waiting for. When you’re not shopping for a brand-new top-end iPhone, an Apple event like the one that took place last night can still be of interest. Apple itself tends to skip over what a new iPhone line-up means for older phones, but it generally means the discontinuation of some and steep discounts on others.
The iPhone XS, XS Max, and iPhone XR were all confirmed as the latest iPhones to hit store shelves during the Apple event in the Steve Jobs theatre yesterday morning. Though these will sit at the top of Apple’s offerings for the next year, that doesn’t mean tossing at least $800 at the company is your only way into the thriving Apple ecosystem. With more expensive handsets come cheaper ones, and while they’re not exactly running cutting-edge tech in this day and age, an iPhone 7 or iPhone 8 price cut is a great way to pick up an old (but new) phone with a 90+% customer satisfaction rate.
iPhone Price Drop: iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 Price Cut
So just how big was the iPhone price cut? $100. Thereabouts, anyway. The same goes for the iPhone 7, too.
The sudden, if expected, iPhone price cut means the iPhone 8 now starts at $599, with the iPhone 8 Plus sliding down to $699 to match. These prices will fluctuate depending on internal storage capacity, but they’re good baselines to keep in mind.
As for the iPhone 7, expect a similar price reduction with $100 being shaved off the old prices now that the 2018 iPhones are up for pre-order. The iPhone 7 price cut makes the smaller phone start at $449, with the iPhone 7 Plus coming down to $569. Again, prices will vary depending on storage capacity.
For those in the U.K, this means the iPhone price cuts bring the iPhone 7 to a £449 starting point, and the iPhone 8 to £599.
