The iPhone 8 is eagerly anticipated — but it won't come cheap.

According to a New York Times article, the upcoming, tenth-anniversary edition iPhone will be priced at "around" $999 (£779, though it'll likely cost more in the UK).

The piece also mentions the presence of the long-rumoured face scanner, which will take the fingerprint reader's place for secure unlocking and mobile payments, as well as inductive charging capabilities.

The current iPhone lineup stretches up to $969 (£757) with the highest-end version of the iPhone 7 Plus, featuring 256GB of internal storage.

Both the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have three storage options: 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB, with the Jet Black and Product RED colouration eschewing the 32GB model.

AppleInsider recently reported that the iPhone 8 will also feature three configurations, with 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB options.
