Someone just paid over $60,000 for this ultra-rare iPhone

When equipped with the best specs, the most expensive iPhone you can buy directly from Apple is the iPhone 14 Pro Max. It sells for $1,599 if you get the top-of-the-line 1TB model.

Apparently ignoring Apple’s current price cap, rare iPhones sell for ridiculously high prices at auctions, and one recently showed the world how much a collector is willing to spend for a rare Apple device. The iPhone in question is an original 2007 iPhone that sold for $63,356.40 through LCG Auctions earlier this month.

Before you start frantically rummaging through your junk drawer for your old used iPhone, the one for sale was purchased in 2007 and left in its unopened box in mint condition. According to the seller, Karen Green, in an interview with Business Insider, friends gave her the phone, but she couldn’t use it because of Apple’s old AT&T exclusivity, so she stayed in the box.

Bid on the phone started at just $2,500, but after 17 days and 19 bids, it increased to more than 60 thousand dollars — nearly doubling the previous record for an original iPhone set in October 2022, when it sold for more than $39,000. According to a representative for LCG Auctions, the online auction house saw a lot of “bullshit” after the previous sale after people saw how much old Apple products could sell for, which inspired Green to contact LCG Auctions to appraise his iPhone.

However, this original iPhone isn’t the only mint-condition old-school Apple device selling for an incredible amount of money. The original Apple-1 computer, built by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak in Jobs’ garage in 1976, sold at auction for $500,000. Obviously, there’s a big difference between the original iPhone in 2007 and the computers handcrafted by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak in 1976 in terms of price and significance, but it’s clear that collectors are willing to break the bank for a piece of Apple history.
