Previous Prediction of iPhone 8 Price

Before official announcement, there were many rumors about the price of iPhone 8 and its Plus version. Based on a research note from Simona Jankowski of Goldman Sachs distributed on May 12, the price of iPhone 8 would be higher than any iPhone models to date, and would break the $1000 price barrier for the first time. It predicted that iPhone 8 would start at 128GB selling for $999 (£795) and a 256GB version would cost $1099. Below is the source note:

Relative to the 128 GB iPhone 7 Plus, we estimate the new features and higher commodity prices to increase the bill of materials by over $70, which we expect Apple to offset via a $130 price increase, resulting in a starting price of $999 for the 128 GB capacity and $1,099 for the 256 GB capacity (we don't expect the iPhone 8 to come in 32 GB).

However, it turns out that rumors are false. Check the section below to get the true price of iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X.
