Apple priced the 64-gigabyte iPhone X at $999 and the 256-gigabyte phone at $1,149.

Apple fans upgrading to the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, or iPhone X should be extra careful not to break the glass backs of the smartphones. There is a clear victor here, with iPhone 8 beating these two devices to a pulp.

However, the report cites sources saying that the company probably took this step to see the pre-sale orders of the iPhone X and also the sales performance of the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus.
