The most awaited news of the year is finally out.
Apple is going to announce the tenth anniversary iPhone, ‘iPhone 8’ along with Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE on September 12. The event will take place at its new headquarters, dubbed Apple Park.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the Cupertino technology giant is planning to use 1,000-seat underground auditorium, called the Steve Jobs Theater, in honor of its late co-founder to announce the new products.
“The headquarters, however, isn’t yet finished and its construction timetable could affect the timing or location of the event”, sources said.
Apple is widely expected to unveil three new iPhones: the S-updates to iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus series along with a “showcase iPhone” with an edge-to-edge OLED panel, 3D sensors and other features.
The company is expected to have told the select carriers to prepare market plans ahead of the event. The expansion should bode well for Apple’s efforts to meet iPhone 8 sales demand during the crucial holiday shopping season.
Apart from the iPhones, Apple is also expected to announce a new Apple Watch model with LTE cellular chip which will allow it to use data directly from wireless services. But there is no mention of the possibility of a fifth-generation Apple TV with 4K video support being debuted at the event.
Apple is yet to send out invites for the September 12 press conference. Stay tuned as we’ll be giving you a heads-up once the media event is official.
