The long wait is finally about to end for fans and investors of Apple. The time has almost arrived to see what the iPhone maker has in store next. It’s time to mark your iCalendars: The iPhone 8 launch date has finally been announced by Apple…and it is September 12.
The invitation came out on Thursday, announcing September 12 as the date for an annual post Labor Day showcase from Apple. “Let’s meet at our place,” the invitations said, featuring a simple multi-colored Apple logo. Per several sources, Apple likes to surprise its customers, but it is expected that Apple will unveil new iPhone editions, along with updates to the Apple Watch, Apple TV, and iOS software.
Three new iPhones that are expected to be unveiled at the event are: A next-generation iPhone 8 model with an edge-to-edge OLED display and a new 3D face-scanning camera; as well as updated versions of the current iPhone 7 and 7 Plus with wireless charging. Furthermore, Apple is also rumored to launch its new 4K Apple TV, along with Apple Watches that could feature LTE connectivity.
The public and the press may also get to hear more about upcoming products like the iMac Pro and the HomePod. Hints of such a device have been spotted in firmware leaks and it’s well known that Apple has had a new Apple TV in the works for some time.
Apple’s iPads and Macs were updated this June. Therefore, there aren’t expected to be any updates in that hardware. But we can expect to see new Apple Watch bands and new iPhone cases.
In line with past events, Apple’s 2017 iPhone inauguration will take place at 10:00 a.m. Pacific time. Apple will also stream the event live on its website and on Apple TV. Subsequently, Apple is also arranging for full event coverage to take place both on MacRumors.com and through MacRumors’ Live Twitter account for those who miss the event.
