Apple iPhone 8 At Steve Jobs Theater On September 12: Report
Apple's next generation iPhone 8 is reportedly going to launch on September 12. The launch event will see more Apple products apart from iPhone 8.
Apple is expected to hold a product event on Tuesday, September 12, according to The Wall Street Journal. The tech giant is aiming to use Steve Jobs Theater for the event.
However, the new HQ isn't finished yet and depending on how construction on site goes the Apple might be unable to hold the launch event at the venue. The backup plan is probably to be the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, where it's held events in the past two years.
At the event, Apple is expected to reveal the much awaited iPhone 8. The next generation iPhone is rumored to come with an OLED display, wireless charging, and facial recognition.
Alongside iPhone 8, the updated versions of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus might also make the debut. Apple Watch Series 3 models and a new Apple TV with 4K video streaming capabilities and HDR support are also expected to be revealed, along with release dates for iOS 11, macOS High Sierra, watches 4, and tvOS 11, as reported by Mac Rumors.
Apple has held a product event in September for five consecutive years, dating back to the introduction of the iPhone 5 in 2012. September 12 was already rumored date for this year's event last week. There are typically 10 or 11 days between a new iPhone being announced and launching, so this year's iPhone could be available on Friday, September 22 based on that trend.
Given the company's past tradition, it is expected that the new iPhones will go on pre-orders starting Friday, September 15 at 12:00 a.m. Pacific Time (3:00 a.m. Eastern Time). More about Apple iPhone 8 will be known during the launch.
