Latest Apple iPhone 8 rumors: September 12th unveiling, top-of-the-line version to offer 512GB of st
One down, two to go. With the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 this morning, we still have the August 31st unveiling of the LG V30, and a rumored September 12th introduction of the Apple iPhone 8 to look forward to. You are probably thinking to yourself that this is the first time you have heard about a September 12th Apple event, and you're right. A website out of France is citing sources from inside the carrier community stating that Apple will unveil the iPhone 8, iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus and the third series of the Apple Watch on that date. And yes, the timepiece will have an LTE radio built in.

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.
