An unopened, wrapped box with an original iPhone from 2007 was sold at auction for a record $190,373 for this device.
Apple sold iPhones with 4 GB of built-in memory for a short period of time, so this version is considered one of the rarest among the first generation iPhones. The lot was expected to fetch around $100,000, but the final price far exceeded expectations. The LCG auction started on June 30 and lasted until July 16. The starting price was $10,000. And after 28 bets, it reached the mark of $190,373.
The first generation iPhone was also available with 8 GB of built-in memory from the start of sales. This version turned out to be much more popular than the version with 4 GB of memory. That’s why Apple stopped producing the latest after a few months, replacing it with a 16 GB model.
