iPhone 8: we got a date!
September 12 folks! Set your calendars...
The internet is abuzz as we finally got a date for the iPhone 8! Read on to know more! The day we’ve all been waiting for! Apple officially announced that September 12 is the Keynote 2017 for (presumably) the iPhone 7S/ 7S Plus and iPhone 8 (or whatever it will be called).
Days before, Wall Street Journal may have just confirmed this straight from Tim Cook himself. Contributor at Forbes Gordon Kelly also has the same tune. While TechCrunch is affirming this is the date Apple is aiming for.
Other dates to remember?
With September 12 being right on the money, Mashable hypothesized this will be the timeline based on Apple’s previous launches:
- Sept. 15 - Preorders will start
- Sept. 19 - first reviews of the new iPhones will come out
- Sept. 20 - iOS 11 will be available for download
- Sept. 22. - iPhone 7S and 7S Plus will go on sale (the new Apple watch too should it be announced in the Keynote)
What about the iPhone 8?
The same site reports that Apple might say it will be available “later this fall”, however BGR says otherwise. They're claiming it will run alongside the 7S/7S Plus as it’s the only way it’ll hit its target revenue for the month.
Where will it be held?
Apple will be launching at the Steve Jobs Theater, which is still under construction.
There were previous talks that if construction won’t finish in time, they may opt for the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco where previous iPhone events were held.
OK, is the price really $1,000 for the iPhone 8??
No official word yet. But current rumor has it that the 64GB Capacity could start at $999. Then go as high as $1,199. We at Tech Armor totally understand that this may bring about a huge dent into your wallet. Even if you choose the possible iPhone 7S/ 7S Plus, that's still quite a huge amount and that kind of large investment deserves the utmost protection. Good news is we’ve got the just what you need!
