  • Apple may launch iPhone 8 on this date

It wouldn't be September without an Apple launch event so we can all rest easy now that Apple is confirmed the time and place for its iPhone 8 reveal. The Cupertino-based giant has scheduled the event for September 12 at 10:00 a.m (10.30PM in India).

Other expected announcements include a new Apple TV box that can handle 4K content as well as an Apple Watch with an LTE connection for internet on the go but also probably extremely short battery life. The regular, usual iterations - iPhone 7s and the iPhone 7s Plus and then the anniversary edition iPhone 8 or iPhone X or whatever Apple will want to call it. Finally, Portfolio Solutions LLC purchased a new stake in Apple during the first quarter worth approximately $169,000.

According to a Bloomberg report, the iPhone 8's screen will be taller than that of the iPhone 7 Plus, and the handset will have a glass and stainless steel construction.

As per a report in Chinese website GeekBar, the upcoming iPhone will come in three storage capacities 64GB, 128GB and 512GB.

As rumoured, Apple will take on Samsung's flagship with an edge-to-edge bezel-less display. The iPhone 7 is 4.7 inches, and the iPhone 7 Plus is 5.5 inches. There will also be an infrared sensor that will let users unlock the device using face recognition even in low light situations.

The tenth anniversary iPhone is expected to feature an OLED panel (the first time any iPhone has sported one) with an edge-to-edge display, a facial detection system, an "L"-shaped battery with long life, the Apple A11 chipset, and certain AR features".

One of the coolest features is rumoured to be wireless charging, which means the gadget will be placed on a "pad" to charge rather than needing to be plugged in.
