So the current hot topic on the iPhone 8 is price. It is being speculated that the newest iPhone will cost over $1000 (£950 at current price Apple difference). Do you think you would pay that for the latest and greatest iPhone?
I think we all agree, Apple really need to get this right in order for us to shell out that kind of money for a Smartphone. I mean let’s put it into perspective, a top end iPad Pro is $999 (£909), a MacBook Air starts at $999 (£949), you can get an entry level iMac for $1099.00 (£1049) and a top end Mac Mini for $999 (£949). The new iPhone has to be really special.
Only time will tell, and unfortunately nowadays the released rumours towards the release of a new Apple product tend to be near to correct, so no major surprises normally which is a real shame. You never know though, maybe this will be the break through moment for Apple where they come back from what is often referred to as a lull period.
