Apple iPhone 8 invitation secret code decoded (totally not a hoax)

So... Apple will hold an event on September 12th and it has sent out official invitations to select members of the media.

And people have already started looking for those secret clues contained in the invitation because SURELY a secretive company like Apple has dropped a hint or two.

Of course, those who seek shall find, and we only humbly share their findings.

So here is how it went: WSJ's Joanna Stern started it all in a rather innocent way...

Alberto Bagnoli saw further symbolism and we can't say we don't see it, once he's shown us...

And finally, Tyler Schnabel drew the final strokes, revealing all the secret messages that Apple has concealed...

Look carefully at the invitation yourself, do you find any secret clues to yet unannounced products?

This is just my speculation but im thinking the color of the apple logo is kinda related to infrared sensor(like a thermal indicator or something) that will be going to use in pearl id or face id since its it would be a big deal for them.

Another analogy would be that the red and blue represent edge to edge screen...

One of the things Apple does best is advertising. They know how to create interest. Looking forward to this event though. Will be interesting to see what they bring to the table that isn't leaked. Would be nice for them to have a watch with LTE.

It's won't be a threat to king Note8 or V30. People are waking up, prepare your ass you thief rotten fruit!

Unfortunately people are not waking up coz they've not been asleep in the first place. If someone decides he wants an iPhone for whatever reason then sure they can afford it one way or another. Appeal is the word here and Android doesn't appeal to everyone. Free will

Just pray that your precious Samsung can get a bone from Apple sales. Truth be told, no one is going to take sales from Apple.

"Truth be told, no one is going to take sales from Apple" Not always true. Someone will always take sales from others for one reason or another. I know people that has jumped ship for others.

True, but at the end of the day, it ends up being a wash. Just as many people came and went. Besides, this has been beat to death for years. Stop sitting around waiting for Apple to die. That crap makes you look lame and have no life. Why even care anyway?

I have never said that Apple will die. I might say that apple sales will slow down, just like others will have good times and bad times. BUT die, never So I guess you are the lame one.

You just forgot that Samsung is the highest smartphone seller in the world. And yes it is not necessary to sell one particular model the most to beat the competitor.

What I see is a lot of green notes and credit cards causing a lot of traffic in stores.
