Apple’s iPhone 8 expected to release on 12 September

It is most likely that Apple is going to continue with its tradition of releasing its phones in the month of September as the iPhone 8 is expected to release on the 12th of the month. This phone has created a lot of anticipation for its release as it is the 10th anniversary iPhone.

Apple has not confirmed any of these rumours, continuing to stick with its policy of being secretive about the release and the design of its phones. However, a report that has been given out by Mac4ever that suggests that the released date is going to be the 12th of next month.

This report also states that the official details of the launch of the device have been shared with those people who are involved in the inventory and the marketing of the iPhone 8. It is expected that Apple is going to launch the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus along with the iPhone 8.

Earlier rumours have stated that the iPhone is going to be available in versions of 64 GB and 256 GB. A leak by Weibo also states that a version is going to be released that has storage of 512 GB. It was also announced at the Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference that the operating system behind the device is going to be iOS 11. It has also been suggested that the device will be lacking in bezels and will be equipped with an OLED screen.

It is also expected that the iPhone 8 will have wireless charging technology. This is because a shareholder Robert Hwang, who is the chief of Wistron, had let it slip that the phone is going to have wireless charging and also that the iPhone 8 will be waterproof. Wistron is the assembler of iPhones and had also indicated that a change might need to be made in the assembly process for the additions that are new.

If we take the 12th of September to be the date that the iPhone is launching on, then we can expect the iPhone 7s and iPhone 8 to go on pre order in the same week (on the 15th of September) , with its release taking place the next week (on the 22nd of September). However, since the launch date of the device has not been confirmed by Apple, all these dates have to be taken as provisional.

Along with the release of the iPhone 8, which is rumoured to be the most expensive iPhone yet, it has also been said that Apple is going to launch a number of other things in September. One of these is the third generation Apple Watch which is going to have LTE radios that are cellular. It is also said to be launching an update on the 4K Apple TV. The launch of the iPhone 8 might also be the first time that the new Steve Jobs theatre, which is in Apple Park, might be used. However, it does look like construction on the site has still not been completed.
