It's official: Apple to hold event on September 12th

It's official, mark your calendars: Apple will hold an event on September 12th, and expectations are that we will see three new iPhones, two upgrades to the current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, as well as a brand new, super premium iPhone model with a new full-screen design and OLED screen, as well as a 3D face recognition feature. A new edition of the Apple Watch - probably the Series 3 - is also expected to make a debut and introduce an LTE chip to the watch, so that you can use most of its features without tethering it to an iPhone.


The September 12th event will also be the first one to take place in the new Steve Jobs Theater at Apple's new "Spaceship" campus in Cupertino. Apple proudly says this in the invite for the event as well: "Let's meet at our place" is the official slogan in the invitation.

This is Apple's first event at the new Apple Park


The event is scheduled to start at 10am Pacific Time, or 1pm Eastern, and chances are that Apple will actually launch its new devices in retail stores on Friday, September 22nd.

The tenth anniversary iPhone 8 is expected to feature an OLED panel (the first time any iPhone has sported one) with an edge-to-edge display, a facial detection system, an "L"-shaped battery with long life, the Apple A11 chipset, and certain AR features. The phone could be offered with 64GB, 256GB and 512GB of native storage, and rumors have the handset priced in the range of $1,000 to $1,400.

Yes. I wish a 64GB 7S plus model to be announced. 32 is too low and 128GB is too high for me :)

Have a good day !

Apple really needs to get LTE in the watch so it can be used without the phone. Apple has been marketing the watch for fitness use and to me having LTE is a huge part of this. I like to leave my phone behind when I work out and be able to text and call from the watch. One area Samsung really is ahead to me is their watches have LTE.

Awesome, looking forward to the new iPhones and their super fast built in storage options, no crappy SD card needed!

Umm... you do realize that Android phones don't NEED micro SD cards either, it's simply an option for many of them if the user wants to store a couple hundred GBs of media, but if you want to turn your nose up at an insanely useful feature then that's on you.

This is the best tech news in 2017 tbh.. every reviewer, tech analyst, publisher, oem, and the masses have basically been waiting for this day to come and seeing what android has released thus far in 2017, this should easily be a moon walk for apple.

Ok I like apple phones but I have to ask what makes this the best tech of 2017? What is new or revolutionary about it? What is this phone going to do that a S8 will not?

You do realize that the timmex and the Rolex does mostly thesame thing? Go figure!

Exactly and I think Rolex is a waste of money so what is your point? If the Iphone is the best tech of 2017 it should have something that sets it apart from the competition don't you think?

A11, suppose to have a face/iris scanner that is at least 2 years ahead of everyone else at the moment are some of the things. Possibly improved stereo speakers? It'll have some pretty good stuff in it

27. Bankz (Posts: 2097; Member since: 08 Apr 2016)


well for starters, it'll have stereo speakers, dual cameras, faceID, Augmented reality, 512 storage, 3D touch, A11 SoC, IOS 11. These are things that even galaxy S8, the best of android currently doesn't even have and that is aside other features, like motion Co-processor, haptic engine, edge to edge design, monster battery and oled which are absolute top of the line today. so what do you think now?

Stereo Speakers - haha who actually listens to music with the built in speakers on their phone? Built in phone speakers sound like garbage. Also you aren't going to get a good stereo split when they are 6 inches apart. Want good sound see the LG V30 it has hi res audio 32bit 192khz dac, 24bit recording.

Duel Cameras - LG has that too, Samsung note 8 does also and both have OIS.

Face ID - Samsung has it too. And rumor has it apple may get rid of the FPS... Worried about how this will work for those of us with glasses, especially multiple pair and when we take them off... Will be interesting if you have to unlock your phone while driving too. I can put my finger on the FPS and hand the phone to a passenger good luck using the face id stuff in this situation.

3d Touch - This can be accomplished via software. When I had the iphone I rarely even used it.

AR - See Google ARCore going to work on more phones then ARkit...

A11SOC/ Display - You mean the ones that Samsung is going to make for them? Apple is finally getting OLED Smasung has had this for years.

Stuff the Note 8 has the iphone will not...
Both Camera's have OIS
S-Pen
Micro SD card slot
FAST wireless charging
Bigger screen
VR Headset
Headphone jack (can actually use headphones and charge the phone at the same time without an adapter).

I don't hate Apple and I have had many of their phones last one being the IPhone7 just lately they haven't been innovating. Hoping they have more to show then what has been leaked.

Will be interesting to see if it supports 600mhz on T-Mobile. Also looking forward to seeing what they bring to the table. Thinking we know everything though now with how everything leaks.

Doubt it, especially if they use Intel modems again.

If I wasn't on Jump On Demand this would be a deal breaker for me. So far only phone that supports 600mhz is the new LG...

I'm curious as to the features it'll get. My list is set...no more phones that don't do true multitasking. Hook it up apple, and I'll most likely get one, if not...I'm passing. I expect to see a really nice looking, one trick pony cone 9-12-17.

I would rather have my phone run smoothly especially after a few months.

Me too, that's one of the things I love about my S8 Plus, it's very smooth and fast. My Note 8 should be the same way. Hella smooth, with all these bad ass features.
