Should you buy an unlocked refurbished iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus?
There’s a lot to be said for the functionality and features of the iPhone 7. This tenth gen model of iPhone first launched in September 2016 as the flagship model.
The very first water-resistant iPhone, the iPhone 7 Plus includes a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera and a second 12 megapixel telephoto lens. A 12-hour 40-minute battery life and almost indiscernible differences from the next generation make it a great all rounder phone.
Can you still purchase the iPhone 7?
No longer available as a new model, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus are available as refurbished models.
On the refurbished market since 2018, the iPhone 7 is widely regarded as a solid contender for more expensive phones.
Common questions we get about the iPhone 7/iPhone 7 Plus
Deciding which smartphone to buy these days can feel overwhelming. We’ve grouped together some of the most common questions we get asked about this particular model.
How much does a refurbished iPhone 7 go for?

Today, unlocked refurbished iPhone 7 phones from Swycha are £150 for the 32GB model and £170 for the 128GB model.
If the idea of buying a refurbished phone concerns you, it’s worth remembering that all our refurbished iPhones will have gone through the rigorous 90-point testing phase with Phonecheck, plus another 18-point physical diagnostic test from an independent company. Unlike other resellers, we don’t sell different grades as all our handsets are in excellent condition. We wouldn’t sell you a phone that we wouldn’t expect to use ourselves.
How much is a used unlocked iPhone 7 worth?
Around 17% of all iPhone users still choose the iPhone 7 – this is testament to its quality and usefulness. This is probably partly because of all the upgrades the model went through, which mean it’s still sleek and impressive seven years on.
