Apple sends out press invites for Sept 12 event at Apple Park

Posted September 01, 2017

Apple has confirmed it will hold its next big conference on September 12 in Cupertino, California, where it is expected to reveal its new iPhone 8.

An Apple event has been announced for 10 a.m. PDT on september 12 at the new Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, Calif. That date fell in line with expectations based on Apple's iPhone timeline, so it seemed like a pretty reasonable rumor.

This rebooted and totally refreshed smartphone looks likely to be one of the most radically different iPhones the world has ever seen.

Although there is no official confirmation from Apple, a report from the Wall Street Journal claims that iPhone 8 will be unveiled on September 12.

The giant donut shaped building named Apple Park, features a goal built theatre named after Apple founder Steve Jobs - and this is where the United States technology firm will reveal all.

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

It is expected that the company will launch iPhone 7S, iPhone 7S Plus and the anniversary edition iPhone 8 at the event.

It's expected that the tech giant will reveal a barrage of products during the keynote presentation, including a new, more expensive iPhone that features a almost bezel-less display and new facial recognition technology, as well as an iterative update to the current iPhone 7 - likely the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus. The screen is supposed to be a 5.8 inch OLED display which is an upgrade over the last one. 3D facial recognition will scan the contours of the user's face and unlock.

Other rumours have suggested that delays in the handset's new fingerprint sensor mean its release could be delayed until October at the earliest.
