iPhone 7 is one of the most awaited smartphones of 2016
Before you know iPhone 7 price; I hope, you might have gone through iPhone 7 release date and iPhone 7 rumors about its specs, features and price. Now if you know well about all the rumors then you would have read about all amazing technologies, which are going to form the part of Apple iPhone 7 in near future i.e by the end of the year 2016.
These new research and technologies being purchased from other companies or Apple’s new patents would have definitely cost them in millions and these millions of bucks would be taken out by making holes from our pockets. So, I can just tell you that iPhone 7 price is definitely going to be on a higher side than expected.
iPhone 7 price rumors
Neither Apple has revealed anything officially about iPhone 7 release date and its price, nor it has been confirmed from reliable sources but, if we go as per the rumors about iPhone 7 price then it would cost somewhere between $799 to $1099. Although rumors are just rumors; so, you can’t rely on them entirely.
But yes, you can get an idea as these rumors are generated either logically or on the basis of the calculations of various factors or the differences between the previous versions of Apple iPhones.
Reading the content of this article further, you can easily figure out the ways to decide the price of an upcoming gadget by the manufacturers. Here, we would finally try to reach the approximate price of iPhone 7.

- 16GB-$649, 64GB-$749, 128GB-$899 available exclusively on retail (iPhone 6S- 4.7 Inch unlocked version since 16 Sep 2015)
- 16GB-$649, 64GB-$849, available exclusively on retail stores (iPhone 6S Plus 5.5 inch –unlocked version since 16 Sep 2015)
iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus were available since 12th of September this year on the basis of pre – order booking and 16th September onwards both these latest versions of iPhone are now available to purchase in retail shops. The prices shown above are the prices of locked versions of iPhones during their release, which means you cannot put inside the SIM Card of your choice but the prices for iPhone 6S and 6S Plus are for the unlocked versions.
iPhone 7 price in context with Present price of all iPhones
In the above paragraphs if you have gone through the comparison of various prices of iPhones you might have seen a particular trend up to the launch of Apple iPhones of previous generations. At present the latest versions of iPhones are ranging from $649 to $849 excluding the prices of the accessories along with them.
So it is very clear from the figures that prices of iPhone were quite higher during its initial launch of first generation, then depreciated further with the production and higher sell in market but, recently due to the global inflation and the implementation of high end technologies, changes in device hardware and software, shape and size and public demand have further increased its prices.
There is no doubt about it that iPhone 7 is not going to cost you less than the price of its present generation, i.e. iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S plus.
iPhone 7 price concluded from difference between last two generations of iPhones
The previous paragraph can be concluded something like this, that iPhone 7 price is going to be more than $749 for its 32 GB and $949 for its 128 GB. I can’t say about other storage capacity iPhones but it is very clear from iPhone 7 rumors and that Apple may stop the production of its 16GB versions with the launch of its all new iPhone.
iPhone 7 price and Reasons for price rise
Although, every company tries to maintain the prices of its particular products within a certain range to make it affordable to its customers but then also there are various factors which have to be kept in mind by the manufacturer to prove its product a profitable deal.
As I have already discussed this thing, that all new patents have cost heavily for Apple and they would definitely try to recover this money from the profit generated by selling its new product in the market. Automatic screen guard protector with pop-ups and its sensors, 3D touch, multi-touch and features like touchpad would increase the price of the product for sure.
Other than this the raw material and labour cost is also going to be higher in future; thus, iPhone 7 price would be much higher than expected.
iPhone 7 prices compared with other iPhones
At the time of launch the price of every product remain higher and with the passage of time it decreases and same is the case with the prices of all iPhones. iPhone 7 has yet not released but its prices would be comparatively higher than all other iPhones available in the market.
Further it may come down after few months. You, yourself can compare iPhone 7 price with other iPhones, once the product is released in the market or is officially announced by the company.
Best possible iPhone 7 price for you to buy
Everybody feels good to see the first day first show, but tickets are much higher and hence I always prefer to wait for few days. It gives me two solid benefits; first is the market response/review and second is the reduced prices. I do something similar before purchasing any product.
So, if you want to buy an iPhone 7 at best price then just don’t be in a hurry and wait for only few days after its launch to bring it home at best price possible.
Would iPhone 7 price be feasible
I would be very frank to admit that I can’t tell you this until and unless the specifications and the iPhone 7 price is officially announced by the company. Most of the time, buying a product from Apple is worth its value in bucks. Nobody wants to pay just for the brand or a logo on the gadgets they carry, but it’s a faith in the quality of that logo.
Thus, if Apple wants to continue this faith, it would not compromise with the quality of the product to reduce iPhone 7 price, rather it will depend on the capacity of the buyer. But, I personally believe and the history reveals that iPhone 7 price would not be too higher and of course it would be feasible for brand lovers but might not be for a common man.
Would iPhone 7 prices be same in all countries
This would be a silly question to ask but then also many people do ask the same. iPhone 7 prices cannot be same in every country because of the difference in taxes imposed by different governments as well as the difference in transportation charges depending upon the distance of the particular country from the manufacturer, if there is no production of iPhone 7 in that country.
But, now a days due to liberalization and globalization the market has taken a complete U-turn in the trade policies and thus iPhone 7 price would not have much of difference between different countries.
iPhone 7 price in U.K.
There is a slight difference between the prices of all versions of iPhones in UK and US. But this difference matters a lot when it comes to save on each and every hard earned penny. The difference is not just because of paying in Euros or dollars but this difference is due to the various taxes imposed on iPhone in UK.
The price of iPhone 6S is 539 Euros in UK for its 16 GB model but, if you will convert this price in dollars as per present conversion rate then it comes around $832 (approximately). It means that you have to pay around $180 dollars more for the same iPhone 6S in UK. Same way if you would purchase iPhone 7, then it is very factual to pay around $200 more than iPhone 7 price in United States.
iPhone 7 price in U.S.A.
If you compare the iPhone prices then you would come to know that all iPhones are cheapest in USA as compared to other countries. The original price tag which you see on the pack in dollars actually reflects the price of iPhone in USA.
No doubt, Apple iPhone 7 prices would remain cheapest in USA in upcoming years too for the same reason that Apple is a USA (Cupertino, California) based company. Company need to pay very less on sales taxes in USA which is not true in case of UK or other countries.
Why iPhone 7 prices are different in different countries
As I described in case of USA and UK, the same thing goes true for other countries too. This difference includes mainly two things; first is the expenditure of the company on its advertisement campaigns are different for different countries and second is the amount of sales taxes charged by the government of that province or the country.
When Apple will start selling its iPhone 7, then also the rule is going to remain same. So, you can say that iPhone 7 price will be different in different countries. Below is the chart, where I have compared the iPhone 6S prices in different countries for its 16 GB model.
How to get iPhone 7 at cheapest price possible
When a word like cheapest comes into existence then you need to consider many things.
Firstly, I would suggest you to purchase your iPhone 7 in future when you visit USA on your next trip as iPhones are available on cheapest price in USA.
The next option is to wait for the offers given by various retailers during the festival season. Especially these offers are given by online retailers.
Third option is to compare the prices offered by various retailers and the deals on shopping marts like Snapdeal, Amazon, Flipkart etc. and then to select the lowest price possible and order your iPhone.
Buy iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus here
Before iPhone 7 price is leaked, I would like to suggest you to opt out from iPhone 6S and 6S Plus versions because it would take almost a year for iPhone 7 to reach the market but, on the other hand, both these models are offering lots of things for their price and they are really best among the series till now.
Don’t worry, once iPhone 7 is launched, you can either sell it or give it in exchange offer to get an all new iPhone 7 in best price possible. Currently iPhone 6S and 6S plus are offering you with 3D touch, 64-bit A9 chip with M9, 12 megapixel isight camera with 4K video, 5MP facetime camera with Retina Flash and live photos as well.
