The upcoming iPhone 12 is set to be Apple's first smartphone with 5G capability, and the hardware upgrade is going to come at a price, with news that the new flagship will cost $100 more than the iPhone 11.
Apple is rumored to be releasing an additional 4G iPhone 12 next year for a comparatively cheaper price, but if you're a high roller looking for an even more premium experience, then this iPhone 12 Apple 1 edition is worth a look – and it'll only set you back $10,000.

Luxury brand Caviar (opens in new tab) is back with another eye-wateringly expensive edition of the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. Inspired by the original Apple 1 (opens in new tab) computer which was designed and built by Steve Wozniak and launched in 1976, the iPhone 12 Apple 1 edition combines a wooden case with a glossy titanium 'screen'. The nostalgia level is cranked up a notch with the addition of a fragment of the original Apple 1's motherboard.
You can opt for the iPhone 12 Pro variant for $9,990 or the iPhone 12 Pro Max model for $10,460, with those prices shooting up to a maximum of $11,150 for the 512GB iPhone 12 Pro Max.
If that's a scooch on the pricey side, the Apple 1 Light edition starts at $4,990 for the 128GB iPhone 12 Pro and features an entirely wooden case, and a significantly smaller piece of the Apple 1 circuitry.

There's only nine handsets of the Apple 1 model available, and 49 of the Apple 1 Light, so you'll have to move fast if you like the look of them.
Caviar is also lining up a SpaceX and Space Odyssey edition of the iPhone 12 which come with their own insanely expensive price tags, and while the Apple 1 edition's price tag is just as bonkers, the nostalgia factor has us hooked.
If you have $10k burning a hole in your wallet, and you're an avid Apple fan, this is a must-buy. The rest of us will simply look longingly at pictures online.
