iPhone 8 announcement, pre-order, and release dates revealed by leaksters
by Preslav Kateliev / Aug 29, 2017, 3:50 AM
We've heard from a few different sources now that the date for Apple's keynote that will reveal the new phones is the 12th of September. A new rumor, which popped up on French website Mac4Ever reiterates this date as the announcement day. However, it also goes on to cite anonymous sources of its own, who claim they have pinpointed the dates when the pre-orders will start and when the actual devices will begin shipping.
According to said leaksters, you will be able to throw money at the iPhone 8 (and 7s / 7s Plus for that matter) on the 15th of September — the Friday that follows the keynote. The actual shipments will begin on the 22nd of September — that's the next Friday or a full 10 days after the actual keynote.
These time frames sound pretty realistic, given Apple's track records with new iPhone releases. Earlier this Summer, some leaksters claimed that the iPhone 8 shipments would be pushed to October due to manufacturing issues, but those rumors have since been silenced. So, maybe everything is on track?

Well the later it is the more iPhones they’ll have on launch day. I’m fully expecting a 4-6 week wait though.

It will be the usual up to 8 weeks or longer. The longest it took me to get an iPhone on pre-order was 10 weeks. That was for out iPhone 6S order. Took 8 weeks to get our iPhone 4. Apple already knows at $1000 they aren't gonna sell a lot of phones without carriers providing some type of deal on trades. The lease or Jump programs are the same no matter what the phone cost. No money down and monthly payments. But carriers will have to offer huge trade-in deals like Samsung is doing with the Note 8. Every phone you trade needs to be worth $400 or more. Even though even at $1000, millions will sell, most sales will be in the USA and Europe, because Asian islands can't even afford older iPhone for $400, so they won't be buying $1000 phones when you have an income per month that is equal or less than $400 per month and you gotta eat and have a p;ace to stay. Apple is basically gonna drive everyone to buy the 7S or 7.

Sorry about that, I couldn't resist it. I'm with you on not being able to wait, but it will very much depend on the level of 'Apple Tax' for the UK.

I may order iPhone 8 online and sell it on Craigslist for a quick profit since I know people will keep bidding up the prices in the beginning. There is no risk since I can always return the phone to Apple!
