The bill of materials (BOM) for a 64 GB iPhone 8 Plus comes out to $288.08.

Meanwhile, the bill of materials cost for the iPhone 8 is $247.51, which is almost $10 more than the iPhone 7.

However, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus component cost is notably economical than the iPhone X, which will be available with a starting retail price of $999 for the base model. They have created a charging mat where you can charge your phone, watch, and earphones at the same time on one pad. The chance of a random person getting into your phone using the facial recognition is 1 to 1,000,000.

The iPhone 8 Plus fared very well on our battery test with a runtime over 11 hours, but the iPhone X should be even better. Don't be surprised, then, if demand for the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus is down year over year as many customers wait for the iPhone X to become available.

Death toll from Indian firing in Kashmir rises to six
These ceasefire violations come a day after one army jawan lost his life in Jammu and Kashmir's Keran Sector. The telephonic exchange at around 1.30 pm took place at the behest of the Pakistani side.

Digitimes, citing unnamed sources, reported that Apple suppliers were shipping just 40 per cent of the components originally ordered for the premium phone, which goes on sale in early November.

In spite of the high pre-order estimates, Kuo still expressed concern over Apple's supply bottlenecks; in particular, the TrueDepth camera which may cause supply shortages into 2018.

As for the 3GB of RAM figure, again, this may sound low compared to some Androids, which often sport 4GB of RAM or more, but in Apple's world this is a big upgrade. However, it incredibly resembles Microsoft's Kinect. We have been saying for months that Apple was having yield problems with the screens and the world would be lucky to see an iPhone X before 2018. The iPhone 7 line topped out at a 2,900mAh battery pack previous year. The new chip means the phone runs about 30 percent faster than last years A10 CPU, runs more efficiently at half the power, and the battery life is prolonged.

In that respect, I think the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus will prove highly successful, and Apple will still sell tens of millions of them over the next year.
