When Apple's executives get on stage next month to unveil the next iPhone, we'll already know almost everything there is to know because, well, they screwed up and leaked the most important details themselves. The new iPhone will probably have an new OLED edge-to-edge screen, no physical home button, wireless charging, and likely come in a new "copper gold" color. But what will Apple call that hot shade of pinkish-bronze?

What appears to be a copper color variant of the iPhone 8 has been leaked online. While the images strongly suggest a new color option for Apple's 10th anniversary iPhone, there's still no guarantee that the iOS 11-running handset would debut in a copper color. This Monday, My Drivers outed on Chinese social media site Weibo a set of photos showing non-functional models of the upcoming iPhone 8. Drawing attention to the images is the model for what seems to be copper or copper gold color variant of the Galaxy S8 rival. It's hard to tell if the leaked photos are those of legitimate iPhone 8 units or simply mockups of the smartphone. However, Apple Insider believes that what's shown in the pictures could be models from a clone factory.
It may be called the iPhone 8, iPhone Edition or even iPhone X, but one thing seems clear - Apple's new handset will be the most expensive the firm has ever made. Prolific Apple leaker Benjamin Geskin has shared what he claims are the final iPhone 8 prices on Twitter, continuing rumors that some versions of the new phone will cost over $1,000. He claims the 64GB version will cost $999, the 246GB version will be $1,099, and the 512GB version will be $1,199. Prolific Apple leaker Benjamin Geskin shared iPhone 8 prices on Twitter, continuing rumors that some versions of the new phone will cost over $1,000. According to a direct conversion, this would price the new devices at £767, £843, and £920 respectively in the UK, but the British version has typically cost more than the those sold in the US, so these may not be accurate.

The iPhone 8 is supposed to be a massive step forward in design and honor the device's 10th anniversary, but it's looking like Apple's new phone may be a flop. A new survey from investment firm Piper Jaffray shows iPhone users aren't any more excited for this release than they were for the iPhone 7. Only 16 percent of those surveyed said they are planning to upgrade to the new device.
