Were you looking to purchase a 256GB variant iPhone 7? Then we’re sorry to tell you that this particular iPhone is no longer in the Apple family. The company stopped selling its 256GB variant iPhone 7 from last month. This is according to Wayback Machine, an internet archive website.
It says that last month, on September 12, when Apple unveiled the three new flagships, respectively the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and its ten year anniversary iPhone X, on that day this American tech giant made a few major changes to its iPhone lineup. And one of those changes was the axing of the 256GB variant iPhone 7.
Well, it is not clear yet as to why Apple would stop selling one of its larger storage capacity smartphones. Perhaps in order to gear up for Apple’s new iPhone 8 sales, the company quietly came to a decision to stop selling that variant.
Almost the same
Here is an example, we can say that apart from the front/back glass panel design, Apple A11 Bionic chipset, and some other changes, the new iPhone 8’s design is almost the same as iPhone 7. More importantly, both phones are capable of being updated to the latest iOS11 software. With that point, it makes sense that between the two phones there is not much of a difference. One more thing is that the 256GB variant iPhone 7 is $100 cheaper than the same variant of the new iPhone 8.
People are choosing the iPhone 7 over the 8
Right now Apple is reportedly struggling to generate interest to sell the new iPhone 8 to the consumers. A number of wireless carriers in the U.S. are suggesting that consumers are purchasing more units of iPhone 7 than the new iPhone 8.
Anyway, if you are lucky then you may still be able to get one, as the wireless carrier Verizon is still offering the 256GB variant iPhone 7 for $749.99, while the same storage for an iPhone 8 is going for $849.99.
