iPhone 7 Buyers Could Overspend By As Much As $1,324

WalletHub, a personal-finance website, has some helpful tips for consumers looking to splurge on Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL)'s iPhone 7.

The iPhone 7 will be launched on Friday, and some analysts are expecting very strong sales.

Given the strong demand and hefty price tag for consumers who may need to bring their contract to upgrade, WalletHub has some advice. Specifically, WalletHub operates a "Cell Phone Savings Calculator" to compare the multiple ways consumers buy an iPhone.
