iPhone 8 could include an accessory worth £160

The new iPhone 8 could include an accessory worth £160 in the box, according to a new report from JP Morgan.

Apple’s AirPods were announced along with the iPhone 7 and went on sale just before Christmas.

The wireless earphones use sensors to automatically detect when they are in your ears, and play or pause your music accordingly. They also contain microphones so you can control your music, change the volume and check your battery life using Siri.


Their release was met with criticism regarding the high cost and the fact they were too easy to lose.

At the start of the year, Apple issued an iOS update that added a feature called “Find My AirPods”.

When activated, the feature makes the AirPods play a sound loud enough to locate them within a room.

The inclusion of the gadget could help to justify its rumoured price tag of over $1,000, which would make it Apple’s most expensive handset yet, according to a Fast Company report.

The device is rumoured to feature a glass body, a curved OLED display, a touch-sensitive digital button, a dual-lens camera and wireless charging.

While “iPhone 8” is still the front runner for the name, iPhone X and iPhone Edition have been offered as possible alternatives.
