Apple previously only offered Jet Black iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models in 128GB or 256GB options, but that has changed with the announcement of iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X.
Following price drops across the entire older generation iPhone line up, Apple now only offers 32GB and 128GB options, and this now means highly sought after Jet Black models are now available at a lower storage tier—and price.
Previously, customers had to pay more for the premium colours, which were more difficult to manufacture and also a sign to friends and family you had the latest and greatest.
A 32GB iPhone 7 in Jet Black starts at $739 CAD, whereas last year customers had to pay at least $1029 for 128GB—a difference of $290, if they wanted the rare colour option.
A 32GB iPhone 7 Plus in Jet Black starts at $899 CAD now, whereas last year users had to pay at least $1179 for the 128GB model, a difference of $280.
These models are showing as delivering in 5-7 business days.
If you’ve been waiting to get your hands on a Jet Black iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, and you’re okay with 32GB of storage, now may be the time to pick one up. But of course, you probably want to get second mortgage for iPhone X instead, right?
Update: clarified only Jet Black required 128GB last year.
