Warning: You Can’t Buy A 256GB iPhone 7 Anymore

Iphone 7 256gbDid you notice anything missing after Apple launched the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X?

If not, take a look at Apple’s catalog of products, and you’d find out that the 256GB iPhone 7 (which used to have the biggest capacity) is no longer available.

Customers are left with three options, namely, the 32GB and 128GB iPhone 7 and the 256GB iPhone 8.

Discontinued

Mashable said archived websites on Wayback Machine showed that the tech giant discontinued selling the 256GB iPhone 7 on September 12.

It was on that same date that the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus and iPhone X were launched, along with the Apple Watch.

Mashable confirmed with a customer service representative that the 256GB iPhone 7 is no longer available.

An Apple spokesperson didn’t respond to a request for comment.

The phonearena.com reported however that Apple chose to stop selling the 256GB iPhone 7 to spur sales of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus – both of which have the same capacity.

According to Mashable, “people aren’t so keen on purchasing an iPhone 8 even if the gadget features simple wireless charging and a more powerful processor.”

Apple can encourage purchases by making it the only way to get a 256GB iPhone.”

There are those who blame the lackluster sales of iPhone 8 on iPhone X which has captured the interest of consumers more than the 8th edition of the iPhone.

Flexibility

With a 256GB iPhone, the user has the flexibility to download big apps, take high-quality images and videos, save more music, and so on.

While a 256GB iPhone isn’t available anymore on the Apple Store, it may be available in other telcos like Verizon.
