The iPhone 8 will get its grand reveal in a matter of days, Apple has confirmed, ending months of increasingly feverish speculation about what promises to be the most radical upgrade to the iPhone for years.
The tech giant has sent out invitations to journalists to what’s sure to be an all-singing, all-dancing launch event at the Steve Jobs Theater at the swish, new Apple Park campus in Cupertino.
Leaks suggest the iPhone 8 will feature an all-new design with a 5.8-inch edge-to-edge screen and will blur the line the between a smartphone and a tablet.
It’s also said to ditch a conventional physical home button, freeing up room for a larger display.
Instead of the Touch ID fingerprint security that would normally be embedded within the home button, it’s purported to be equipped with facial recognition technology that allows you to unlock your phone just by looking at it.

The showcase is also expected to see Apple lift the lid on the 4.7-inch iPhone 7s and 5.5-inch 7s Plus, which will reportedly cleave closely to the look and feel of the current iPhone 7 but with a series of improvements under-the-bonnet.
The completed version of Apple’s freshly baked iOS 11 software is also set to get an airing. And we could even get our first look at the Apple Watch Series 3 with 4G connectivity and a 4K version of the Apple TV set top box.
Prices for the any of the new kit are guesswork right now. But rumours indicate that the iPhone 8 could be priced as much $1,000 in the US.
Depending on the effect of current exchange rates and the premium Britons pay for Apple devices, that could mean a price tag of anything between £795 and £1,000.
The launch event, which you’ll be able to watch online as it happens, starts at 6pm UK time.
