Apple fans have the chance to own an original 2007 first-generation iPhone – if they are willing to pay the price.
According to LCG Auctions, where the item is offered for sale, the original 2007 factory iPhone is likely to fetch an amazing $50,000 or more. It is still sealed and unopened in its factory packaging.
The iPhone had a 3.5-inch screen, a 2-megapixel camera, and 4 or 8 GB of storage when it was originally manufactured. According to CNN, the initial phone was only offered by AT&T on a 2G network and did not have an app store. Time Magazine awarded it the Invention of the Year for 2007.
The particular iPhone up for grabs is being consigned by its owner, Karen Green, who was gifted the Apple product when it was first released. In a 2019 appearance on “The Doctor & The Diva,” the proud owner said she was gifted the phone but never opened the package as she was happy with her current device.
She said she held onto it hoping it would come in handy one day. On the air, her 8 GB phone was appraised at $5,000 by Ph.D. Antiques Appraiser Dr Lori.
