With just a week left for the Apple iPhone 8 to debut, the tenth anniversary iPhone might shock fans with its pricing. With a predicted price of $1,199, the iPhone 8 translates to Rs. 76,700 in terms of the Indian price.
Benjamin Geskin posted the probable prices for this year’s iPhone, and the storage variants show a big difference in price between them. The Apple iPhone 8 may come with 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB models. This means that the good old 32GB and 128GB are out of the picture.
