Ap­ple An­nounces iPhone8 and More

The Jewish Voice - - BUSINESS & TECHNOLOGY -

On Thurs­day Au­gust 31st, Ap­ple fi­nally con­firmed the long an­tic­i­pated an­nounce­ment for the iPhone 8, re­leas­ing in­vi­ta­tions for the press dated Tues­day Septem­ber 12 at 10 am. The event, which falls out on iPhone’s 10th An­niver­sary, will be the first to be held in Ap­ple’s new cam­pus, at the Steve Jobs The­ater in Cu­per­tino, Cal­i­for­nia, up­ping the ex­cite­ment. Ap­ple will launch a new iPhone un­like any­thing it has made so far, pos­si­bly named iPhone X. In ad­di­tion, Buz­zfeed News has in­for­ma­tion from a source, say­ing Ap­ple will also launch “an ar­ray of new prod­ucts.”

The NY Post is ex­pect­ing that the iPhone 8 and iPhone 7s will launch on the sec­ond Fri­day af­ter the event, char­ac­ter­is­tic of Ap­ple de­buts.

We’re look­ing for­ward to “three new ver­sions of the iPhone, a next-gen­er­a­tion Ap­ple TV ca­pa­ble of 4K stream­ing, and an up­dated Ap­ple Watch ca­pa­ble of con­nect­ing to LTE cel­lu­lar data net­works,” said the re­port. The most ad­vanced of new iPhone mod­els, which will be priced at nearly $1,000, will have a bezel-less OLED screen. It will un­lock by the use of fa­cial recog­ni­tion, and it will charge by mag­netic in­duc­tion, no plugs re­quired, as re­ported by the NY Times. The fifth-gen­er­a­tion Ap­ple TV will of­fer dou­ble the pre­vi­ous video res­o­lu­tion. It has been spec­u­lated that Ap­ple plans to in­vest $1 bil­lion to cre­ate its own orig­i­nal TV pro­gram­ming, which prob­a­bly means it will do its best to de­liver a top prod­uct for its view­ing. The NY Post is ex­pect­ing that the iPhone 8 and iPhone 7s will launch on the sec­ond Fri­day af­ter the event, char­ac­ter­is­tic of Ap­ple de­buts. That means on Septem­ber 22 stores should be stocked with the lat­est iPhones, or they can be or­dered on­line and by phone for delivery. Of course, sup­ply of the new­est iPhone will be lim­ited in the first month or so af­ter the de­vice’s launch. This is done not only to spark ex­tra at­ten­tion but also be­cause of tech­ni­cal chal­lenges and com­po­nent short­ages. Ap­ple may pro­duce only 25 mil­lion phones in Septem­ber and 60 mil­lion more dur­ing the hol­i­day sea­son, ac­cord­ing to Ap­ple In­sider. Ear­lier ru­mors by the Eco­nomic Daily News said the iPhone’s decade edi­tion wouldn’t be de­liv­ered un­til Oc­to­ber or Novem­ber, due to com­po­nent de­lays in mem­ory chips and for the OLED screen.
