The iPhone 8 price list has leaked and your wallet is going to take a pounding

Let’s face it, we’re all excited about the iPhone 8.

The 6 was basically a bigger 5 (which was basically a bigger 4) and the 7 was a bigger 6, overshadowed by Apple taking away the headphone port, something which was basically just a giant pain.

Actually when you look at it written down, Apple hasn’t really done that much since the 4 have they? Lazy. Very lazy over in Cupertino.

But it does seem like the iPhone 8 (or ‘Edition’, or ‘X’, depending on who you believe), which is due to be unveiled on 12 September, is going to be a leap forward for the phone, which celebrates its 10th birthday this year.

Industry insiders have suggested that it will be the first to debut wireless charging tech, a curved AMOLED display, a vertical dual rear-facing camera and the ‘home’ button will be disappearing. Oh, and there’s no return for the headphone port dammit.

But anyone angry about that last point will soon find it usurped in their anger by what seems to be a credible leak of the price list for the new phone.

Strap yourselves in and say soothing words to your bank account:

Yes, you read that right, a thousand greenbacks for the cheapest model.

If this is too much for you, fear not – apparently Apple will be launching the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus at the same event, which – you’d hope – will be a bit easier on the wallet, although they obviously won’t be the shiniest model in town.

But how reliable is this price info?

Sounds legit to me.

The launch event will be streamed on the Apple website and it’s expected to kick off at 6pm. In the meantime, get pawning your clothes if you want to buy one.
