The 2017 iPhone cohort is here, which means it's the second-best day of the year for Apple fans.

The best day of the year, of course, is yet to come. It's the day the newest iPhones become available, which isn't until Sept. 22 (although you can preorder from Sept. 15).

It's set to be kind of like Christmas, except rather than getting gifts for our friends and family, we're more likely to be buying one particular gift for ourselves. And even as treat yo'self days go, this one will be extremely expensive.

The iPhone 8, the smallest of the three new Apple devices, will start at £699 for the 64GB model, or £33.56 per month. For the more capacious 256GB model, you'll have to part with either £849 or £40.75 per month.

If you want to upgrade to the 5.5-inch display on the iPhone 8 Plus, you'll have to splash out even more. The 64GB phone will cost £799 or £38.35 per month, and the 256GB model is priced at £949 or £45.55 per month.

And the iPhone X? Apple's most sophisticated phone yet will cost you a cool £999 for the 64GB iteration, or £47.95 per month. If you think that's pricey, look away now, for the 256GB model will be £1,149 or £55.15 per month.

These are all Apple's official prices, so read on for pricing from individual networks.
