    So the latest rumors guys point to the iPhone Edition, as I’ll call it, is saying that starting price point is going to be $1249.

    I’ve been watching this awesome guy on YouTube called Tailosive Tech and he made a video about that the iPhone Edition needs to cost this much so that it doesn’t take too much of the spotlight away from the 7S/7S+ phones. Since if the phones prices only ended up being a couple to a few hundred dollar difference then everyone would be buying the Edition and leaving those phones in the dust.

    What are your thoughts and would you still buy it or go for the cheaper 7S models?

    I’m kind of on the fence right now but since I’m on the Apple Upgrade program it’s a little easier to swallow.

    As I’ve stated in another thread, if it goes north of $999, I’m not buying it....

    Would you get one of the 7S models then or just keep your 7 Plus?

    I’d probably keep my current iPhone 7 Plus, but if the iPhone 7S is priced in line with the current iPhone 7 then I would seriously consider getting it.

    These rumored iPhone 8 price points are really starting to get ridiculous. Anything over $1,100 and my iPhone 7 Plus will be my daily driver for at least another year.

    All the rumors so far are getting annoying and ridiculous. Plus I’m getting sick of EverythingApplePro’s videos sheesh such a tool now.

    I just want the phone to be announced already so this can all be over.

    I like his videos generally but still I think it will be over 1400 and I think I may not get it.

    If anybody knows any illegal organ harvesters, please send me a pm!!

    In other words, if I have the money, I’ll buy it. If not,
    I’ll hold off until next year.
    It’s not like that one will have less options than this years soon to be released iPhones.

    Is the left kidney worth more than the right?

    I will never, under any circumstances, pay that much for any phone. I don't care if it holds its value or not.

    And I'm also definitely keeping both my kidneys otherwise I would have to give up beer.

    Just about everything I've heard about this "edition" phone reminds me of an ugly cheap Android.

    If it's 1100+ tax, and warranty will bring it up to 1300-1400. I just don't forsee them only charging 1,000 for it.

    Most probably.
    My 7 Plus 128GB cost me $1,355.85 CAD taxes included.
    So $45 more wouldn’t break my bank.

    But $1,400 + tx would be a no go.

    Current plus phone starts at $769. I don’t think the new iPhone will start tremendously higher. Maybe $899. Or $949 at the very max. That might be pushing it. Will the top tier storage cost a ton? Yeah. But most people don’t need that much space.
