How much will it cost? . The device will receive an OTA update to the most recent production version of Android available for that device (for example, Android 7.1 Nougat).

However, one area where the iPhone wins out is in augmented reality, which layers computer-generated graphics over real-life objects, and makes its debut in the 8 and the X.
