The iPhone 8 is eagerly anticipated — but it won’t come cheap.
According to The New York Times, the upcoming 10th-anniversary edition of the iPhone will be priced at about $999 (£779, though it’ll most likely cost more in the UK).
The article also mentions the presence of the long-rumoured face scanner, which would replace the fingerprint reader for secure unlocking and mobile payments, as well as inductive charging capabilities.
The current iPhone lineup stretches up to $969 for the highest-end version of the iPhone 7 Plus, featuring 256 GB of internal storage.
Both the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have three storage options: 32, 128, and 256 GB. The jet black and Product RED colourations eschew the 32 GB model.
AppleInsider recently reported the iPhone 8 would also feature 64, 256, and 512 GB options.
Apple usually charges an extra $100 for each size bump, which would mean a 512 GB iPhone 8 could end up costing about $1,200.
