Latest Apple iPhone 8 rumors: September 12th unveiling, top-of-the-line version to offer 512GB of storage34
If the September 12th date is correct, pre-orders would be expected to begin on September 15th with a launch of all three handsets on September 22nd. At this point, we have no idea what each phone will be named officially. Keeping with tradition, we would expect that the 4.7-inch model will be called the Apple iPhone 7s with the 5.5-inch phablet known as the Apple iPhone 7s Plus. For the premium tenth anniversary edition, which is the phone that everyone has been calling the Apple iPhone 8, possible names include the iPhone Pro, iPhone X (which would cover the premium nature of the device and also indicate it is the tenth anniversary of the iPhone) or simply the Apple iPhone.
Another report released today, this one out of China, indicates that the Apple iPhone 8 will launch with a base model containing 64GB of native storage. The mid-tier option would carry 256GB of native storage and (are you sitting down?) the high-end option would offer a whopping 512GB of native storage. KGI Securities, home of reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, had previously issued a report calling for the iPhone 8 to be offered in 128GB and 256GB variants only. On the other hand, Apple added a 512GB version of the iPad Pro this year, so perhaps we just might see that much storage made available to iPhone 8 users this year.
Without verification, we do suggest that you take all of this speculation with a grain of salt. And if you do decide to circle your calendar for September 12th, you might want to use a pencil until Apple itself announces the date of its next event.
