iPhone 8 price may not break $1,000 after all

But could still be over £1,000 in UK.

Apple’s forthcoming iPhone 8 will start at around $900 in the United States, with the price of a higher end model pegged at just under $1,000.

That’s the word from UBS analyst Steven Milunovich, who claims that the basic 64GB model of the iPhone 8 will start between $850 and $900.

Want more iPhone 8 rumours? We've collated all the speculation in our one-stop round-up.

In some quarters, it's thought that the iPhone 8 could cost over £1,000 this side of the Pond, due to the weakness of Sterling and the premium levied on Apple gadgets in the UK.

If Milunovich's data is correct, it could still mean we pay that much for the handset.

The analyst bases his forecast on insider knowledge about factory costs of the handset, which he says are around $70 more than the impending 32GB iPhone 7s Plus.

Milunovich also suggests that a larger 256GB model will come in between $950 and $1,000, likely just under the latter in order to avoid breaking that psychological barrier.

The updated phone is expected to feature an OLED screen, 3D dual lens camera and a new fingerprint scanning system, as well as facial recognition.
