Apple has confirmed that the iPhone 8 launch event will take place on September 12. While the tech giant has sent out media invites for an event, it is highly expected that the next iPhone will be launched there, along with more variants of the previous iPhone 7. We know that Apple is generally secretive about all of its events, so it is very difficult to make speculations on the exact nature of the event and which products it will launch. However, we can bank on the several leaks and rumours around the iPhone 8 and come to a common conclusion on what to expect from Apple and the smartphones. But the most interesting this in this year’s event is that the keynote speech by Apple CEO Tim Cook will take place at a new venue- the Steve Jobs Theatre. Meanwhile, have a quick look at what you need to know about the event.

The next Apple iPhone is highly expected to be announced at the September 12 event. Additionally, it has also been reported that the company may come up with some new models of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. This is the 10th anniversary of the Apple iPhone, which former CEO Steve Jobs had launched in the year 2007. So, that company seems to have gone the extra mile to feature many new dramatic changes in the premium version of the iPhone 8 or iPhone X. Apple is expected to bring out one of the best display screens ever and may also get rid of the home button and fingerprint scanner. Instead of that, the company may introduce the gesture or face recognition controls. Meanwhile, reports have suggested that the iPhone 2017 could be the most highly priced device from the company ever. Some of the rumours have suggested that the phone could be priced at over $1000, at least the top end model. However, there has been no confirmation from the company on this, and instead of speculation, we should wait for the September 12 event. That being said, if we look at the history, recently most of the rumours regarding the previous iPhones, before their launch, have turned out to be true.
Where is the Apple event?
Apple is organising this event at their all new campus called Apple Park, situated at Cupertino. The September 12 event will be the company’s maiden event at its new ‘spaceship’ campus. The campus, in itself, is not fully opened. The launch event will take place that the spectacular Steve Jobs Theatre. It is interesting to note that the most of the last few iPhones were launched at the Moscone or Bill Graham centre in San Francisco. Also, the Apple WWDC took place at San Jose, which marked the company’s comeback to the city after a long time.
What else will be announced at the Apple September 12 event?
It is almost certain that the company will come up with a new Apple Watch at the event. We can also expect a totally new Apple TV. Additionally, Apple may also show off some new accessories like AirPods, but there is no proper information on the same.
