The iPhone 8 release date is claimed to be the week of September 22, with the Apple special media launch event suggested to be on 12th.
We are only few days away from the new iPhone 8, as it is expected to be released next month – after Apple all but confirmed it. It appears that the Apple iPhone 8 will be a momentous event as the rumors and leaked specs and features about the possible unprecedented features have been swirling around over the worldwide web for months.
A multiple reports from various sources earlier this week claimed that the Cupertino-headquartered technology giant is going to host its annual special media iPhone event on Tuesday, September 12th. While the iPhone maker has not yet thrown out a press invites that would confirm that iPhone 8 launch date, a number of reliable sources mentioned it, which potentially means an announcement is impending. Assuming that the September 12th is the new iPhone 8 launch date, then here are all the iPhone 8-related keynote dates you need to know.
The technology firm has an iPhone launch traditionally set in place for every September, meaning that an announcement date is enough to predict all the other days in September that are related to the highly anticipated launch of the new and radically redesigned iPhone 8.
The iPhone maker should send the press invites about a week prior to the official launch event, which makes September 5th a most potential date.
After Apple officially launch the iPhone 8 to the public on September 12th keynote event, then the new iPhone preorders should go live on Friday, September 15th at 12MN PT.
The final iOS 11 version, on the other side of the schedule, will be seeded and out to the public for compatible iPhones, iPads, and iPod touch handheld devices on Wednesday, September 20th, about a week after Apple demos iOS 11 again at its iPhone event on September 12th should it is the exact launch date.
The iPhone 8 release date is speculated to be fall on the week of September 19 or September 26, 2017. The tech titan traditionally releases its latest iPhones during the first three weeks of September, in good time for the kick off of Black Friday as well as the holiday shopping season.
The iPhone 8 preorders, meanwhile, will be shipped on September 22nd, and the handset phones will be available in brick-and-mortar Apple stores on the same day. Some reports suggests that only the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus will be available in September. And the iPhone 8 will be announced during the keynote on the September 12th, but sales won’t start until October or November. But many industry analysts don’t think that would be the case.
It’s potentially and more likely that Apple will release a limited number of iPhone 8 units in September, and the it will be sold alongside the less-expensive iPhone 7s smartphone line. With that being said, this may be the only way that Apple hits its revenue target for the third quarter of 2017.
The iPhone 8 marks the 10th year since Apple released the first ever unit of the smartphone product line, and this anniversary edition handset could be the most expensive iPhone ever starting at whopping $1000. A new report claimed that the iPhone 8 will have a premium price of $999, but it is not clear if it will be the highest storage capacity model or the base configuration.
