Apple’s Original iPhone Just Sold For Nearly $40,000 At Auction

While most original iPhone owners ripped open their boxes to use the revolutionary piece of technology in 2007, one person who didn’t is now reaping nearly $40,000 in profits.

As reported by GameSpot, a factory-sealed, original 2007 iPhone just sold for $39,339.60 in an online promotion. The 8 GB model originally sold for $599, earning the patient’s owner $38,740.

“This factory-sealed copy of the first release is in exceptional condition,” the listing reads. “Virtually flawless along the surface and edges, the factory seal is clean with proper seam detail and tightness.

iPhone 14 Pro review

“It quickly became Apple’s most successful product, forever changing the smartphone industry, and was named Time Magazine Invention of the Year in 2007.”

The original iPhone came with 16 apps pre-installed with no way to get more because there is no App Store, including phone, text, camera, calculator, weather and more. It was only available in 4GB and 8GB variants, a far cry from the current iPhone 14, which has a minimum of 128GB and a maximum of 1TB.

In our 9/10 review of Apple’s latest, IGN said, “The iPhone 14 Pro is one of the most substantial innovations in the iPhone formula, with a 48MP always-on camera and spiffy Dynamic Island animations.”
