You can now pre-order a 24k gold iPhone 8

You might need to save up for it...

The iPhone 8 is coming to market soon, and as people clamour to get the new device, others want their soon to be outdated phone to have a timeless quality.

How do they want to do that? They want to cover them in gold.

Gold Genie has their glamorous phone on presale right now and you can preorder the 24k gold case for around $3,400 (£2,600).

Or if you want to do something a little different you can get the case in rose gold or platinum for the same price!

If you have an expendable 3400 dollars for a customized Apple iPhone why not add an extra grand in so you can have the 24k gold phone covered in diamonds, on the side and with a diamond covered apple logo.

To reserve this custom phone you do have to put down a deposit of 50% of the money.

The phone does come in a premium cherry case, because you don't keep your golden phone in your pocket like a regular person.

The bonus of paying extra for a golden phone is that you will already have your phone reserved, unlike those who have to wait for the official launch of the iPhone 8 on September 15th.
