Apple iPhone 8 launch will take place on September 12 and the company just made the day better by revealing that it will also unveil the brand new auditorium named as the ‘Steve Jobs Theatre’. As the name suggests it is dubbed after the company’s founder himself. The Theatre, built as an underground facility for hosting Apple’s semi-annual launch events, among other things. So far only seen schematics of the facility have been seen. But now everything will change. MacMAgazine took to Instagram to share the first glimpse of the auditorium. Users should not forget that the images were uploaded to Google Maps in June. Unfortunately, the facility is a little away from the main Apple Park so visitors would not get a tour or a glimpse into the new underground facility. The images that were shared by MacMagazine shows that the Steve Jobs Theatre is still under construction.
According to reports, the theatre will feature stadium-style seating which can accommodate 1,000 people. The ground level lobby of the Theatre has been visible since June when an unauthorised drone flight revealed the glass-walled, circular facility. The walls are said to be 20-feet high and are apparently holding up a 165-feet diameter metallic carbon-fibre roof, reports Apple Insider.

The images of the under-construction site do not reveal much but it gives a fair idea of what the theatre would look like. We can see images of surfaces covered in plastic, temporary wooden railings and a peek into the backstage area. Neil Cybart’s schematics, however, are far more informative. They took to Twitter and shared sketches of the theatre.The circular exhibition space will most likely be walled off to prevent visitors from getting a sneak peek at the products to be unveiled before the official unveiling.
