It's official: Apple's iPhone 8 event will be held on September 12
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.
