Apple is ready to soon launch its 10th anniversary iPhone which as per reports will be called Apple iPhone 8. Today, a new report has surfaced from New York Times which says that the alleged Apple iPhone 8 will have a premium model which will be priced at $999. The report has cited sources who have received a tech briefing from Apple regarding the new iPhone. The report also states that the new iPhone will come with a full-screen display along with small bezels on the sides to hold the device. The device also will have facial recognition and support for wireless charging.
Previously, we’ve seen reports stating that the new iPhone will cost anywhere from $1,000 to $1,200. Even JP Morgan had put out a report stating that the average selling price of the Apple iPhone 8 will be $1,100. If these reports are right and Apple prices the new iPhone near $1,000, it would be the most expensive iPhone ever.
The New York Times also reported that the company will only be using face recognition and will be removing Touch ID altogether. However, we do feel that this might be wrong as facial recognition technology is still in its infancy and will take time to secure, therefore Apple might provide Touch ID along with it.
This being the tenth-anniversary edition of the iPhone we did expect Apple to price it high, there has been a report pointing towards the fact that Apple will be launching this at an event on September 12. However, some analysts have reported that due to the low supply of the Apple iPhone 8 the company will also be introducing iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus along with the device.
