It appears that the four-figure ticket is here to come when it comes to new iPhones from Apple.
In fact, the $ US1
$ US750 iPhone XR may seem like iPhone to get if you do not want to be a part of the $ US1000 club, but there are actually a few things about iPhone 7 that some might prefer over XR.
Fortunately, Apple is keeping around its older iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus only if you want the Apple experience for under $ US600. Surprisingly, you do not sacrifice so much by going with Apple's iPhone 7, which is now two generations old. The iPhone 7 is still a great smartphone that stands strong in the face of its younger, shiny siblings, and it's still a great option for anyone who is clipped on an iPhone 4, iPhone 5 and even iPhone 6.

1. It's not as expensive as the new iPhones.
iPhone 7 costs primarily as little as $ US450, and it's $ US570 for iPhone 7 Plus.
For iPhone 7, the $ US300 is less to start than iPhone XR, $ US550 less than iPhone XS and $ US650 less than iPhone XS Max.
For iPhone 7 Plus, it's $ US180 less than iPhone XR, $ US430 less than iPhone XS, and $ US530 less than iPhone XS Max.

The word "Renovated" may not sound good, but my experience with a refurbished 2016 MacBook Pro directly from Apple has been nothing but positive. And you also get a one year warranty with refurbished devices. "data-reactid =" 36 "> You can even get iPhone 7 refurbished from Apple's refurbished Mac Store for less. The word "Renovated" may not sound good, but my experience with a refurbished 2016 MacBook Pro directly from Apple has been anything but positive. And you get a one year warranty with refurbished units.
(To notice, I experienced a problem with the MacBook keyboard, but it's a common issue among the 2016 and 2017 MacBook Pros that could easily happen on the new MacBook too. Apple has recognized and offers to repair for free.)
2. You still get the same great iOS experience.
Despite paying significantly less for iPhone 7, you still get the latest version of iOS, iOS 12. It features better performance for older iPhones, as well as updates to the notifications system and other great tweaks that make the iPhone operating system better and easier to use.
3. The iPhone 7 is lighter and thinner than the new iPhones.
iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are lighter than all the new iPhones, although the iPhone 7 Plus is heavier than the $ US1000 iPhone XS.
The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are also a bit thinner than all the new iPhones.
4. The iPhone 7 has the home button and fingerprint scanner, which some might prefer over Face ID on the new iPhones.
If you're not ready to adopt Face ID or the new gestures to navigate your iOS 12, iPhone 7 phones Keep on with the good old-fashioned home button and Touch ID fingerprint sensor. They will give you the classic, tried and true iPhone experience, while the new face ID and gestures can be used to.
5. The iPhone 7 still has a great camera.
Significant advances have been made with the new cameras on the new iPhones with features like Smart HDR, but the iPhone 7 still takes great pictures. The iPhone 7 Plus comes with a dual-lens camera system, with one of the lenses giving a 2x zoom.
6. The iPhone 7 Plus has a higher resolution than the iPhone XR.
Surprisingly, the iPhone XR's 6.1-inch display will get an 828p screen resolution closer to the smaller 750p 4.7-inch iPhone 7 than the 1080p 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus. This means that the iPhone 7 Plus has a sharper display than a brand new iPhone with a larger screen.
We have not yet seen how it will affect the viewing experience on iPhone XR, but at least you will know that the iPhone 7 Plus is technically sharper with a 1080p resolution.
7. The iPhone 7 has 3D Touch, unlike iPhone XR.
In another surprise, the iPhone XR does not come with Apple's 3D Touch feature, which allows you to print hard on a program to get useful shortcuts. It may not be the most used features in the world, but 3D Touch users might want to avoid iPhone XR and go to a phone with 3D Touch … like iPhone 7!
8. The iPhone 7 is still a great performer.
By selling iPhone 7 with the A10 chip, Apple says essentially that it is still a top player that complies with its strict standards. In fact, my wife's iPhone 6S with an older chip still runs beautifully with iOS 12.
