As expected, Apple has sent out invites for a 'Special Event' on September 12. By this time, it should be clear that the event will include the launch of the iPhone 8 (or whatever it is called), refreshed variants of the iPhone 7:  the 7S and 7S Plus, and the Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE connectivity. There could also be an announcement of a new 4K Apple TV.

The Special Event will take place inside Steve Jobs Theater in the new Apple Park aka 'spaceship' campus in Cupertino, California. The Steve Jobs Theater is a 1000-seat auditorium located prominently on a hill and will likely be the venue for all Apple events henceforth. Construction of the Apple Park started in 2013 and is on the verge of completion. 

Apart from new hardware, the company could also release the final versions of iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra during the event. Speculations are rife that the iPhone 8 could feature an edge-to-edge OLED display and could forego the Home button. Evidence has also been found for presence of what could be Apple's 3D facial recognition technology, Pearl ID. 

The event is scheduled to kick-off from 10 AM PDT on September 12.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
