Apple Announces iPhone8 and More
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.
