Apple will almost certainly launch its long–awaited iPhone 8 at a special event on 12th September.
That’s the word from TechCrunch, backing up reports from the Wall Street Journal which emerged earlier this week.
The tech site says that the delay in confirming the date centres on whether Apple will have the Steve Jobs Theatre on its new Apple Park campus ready in time.
The 1,000 seat venue isn’t finished yet, but Apple wants to reveal its latest headline grabbing product at its new home in a bid to build on the huge hype surrounding the device. Official confirmation is likely to come over the next few days.
Apple is set to reveal its tenth anniversary iPhone, as well as new iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus models and an updated Apple Watch with 4G built in.
The iPhone 8 is likely to feature a new, all–screen front, 3D facial scanning tech and a vertical dual lens camera. The other new models will look and feel similar to last year’s efforts, but with glass design in order to facilitate wireless charging.
