iPhone 8 announcement, pre-order, and release dates revealed by leaksters
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?
