If you are looking at buying an iPhone in 2018 but do not have the budget to shell out big cash on iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus or iPhone 8, you should consider buying iPhone 7. Here are a few reasons why this is a good time to buy Apple iPhone 7.
Perhaps you own a much older iPhone – say an iPhone 5C – and you would like to upgrade it. Or perhaps, like a number of Android users have expressed to me in recent times, you would like to switch to iOS for a different, arguably more secure and more stable experience, an iPhone 7 is a good place to start. Why? let’s explore the territory.
Number One Reason To Buy Apple iPhone 7: Software
Apple iPhone 7 is getting all the most up-to-date features that the iPhone 8 is getting, thanks to Apple’s software update policy. You will not be missing out on anything, software-wise. Powering up an iPhone 7 after purchase, you will find that there is an iOS update waiting for it.
Number Two reason To Buy Apple iPhone 7: Hardware
In terms of hardware, iPhone 7 has most of the features that you will find on the iPhone 8: similar design and looks, same dust/water resistant, same support for Apple Pay, same network support, same internal storage, same RAM, same camera specifications, and same fingerprint scanner.
Even better, iPhone 7 has a bigger battery than iPhone 8.
Number Three Reason To Buy Apple iPhone 7: Price
So, we are finally at the subject of price, which is a critical determining factor for many people.
A new unit of the iPhone 7 is currently selling at about 60% of its launch price two years ago, which is something around $600 or NGN210,000. That is a significant cost saving for anyone who wants an iPhone that is not outdated. As a matter of fact, and if you want to cut down some more, you can get a certified refurbished unit for about $390 or NGN137,000.
And if you need to spend even less than that, the iPhone 6s costs even less. It is slightly older hardware but still very capable, and can be purchased for as low as $257 or N125,000.
Why Buy Apple iPhone 7?
So, if you are switching from Android OS to try out iOS, you can do a trial without coughing out a huge chunk of your annual salary. If you like the experience, you can then choose to upgrade next year.
If you are merely looking for an affordable iPhone to buy in 2018, it is difficult to go wrong buying Apple iPhone 7. As already mentioned, if even that is beyond your reach, the iPhone 6s is still very much available and at comfortable prices.
