Apple confirms 12 September launch

Posted September 04, 2017

The iPhone X name has always been floated as an alternative to the iPhone 8 and would certainly make more sense what with the handset marking ten years since the launch of Apple's first smartphone. The company typically starts in-store sales and shipping of its next generation of iPhones about 10 days after the public unveiling, to drive up sales before its financial quarter closes on September 30. The 10th-anniversary models are expected to include a bold redesign, possibly called the iPhone 8, and updates to the current iPhone 7 series handsets, usually referred to as the iPhone 7S series. Apple blogger and expert John Gruber already thinks, that Apple might not name its new line of iPhones under the "7s" nomenclature.

The Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino is the company's newest headquarters, and it will be the first time the multinational tech company uses the place for the yearly iPhone event.

In June, iPhone assembler Wistron confirmed that this year's iPhones will be waterproof.

The reason why Apple doesn't want to equip iPhone 8 with 32GB storage is because that's just way too small.

iPhone X moniker seems the most reasonable option. The "iPhone X" moniker has made some rounds on the web before but eventually faded away with news reports settling for "iPhone 8". "Both Apple and Accenture are leaders in building incredible user experiences and together we can continue to truly modernise how businesses work through fantastic solutions that take advantage of the incredible capabilities of Apple's technologies".

Here's the skinny of it. Apple is expected to launch three phones at its September 12 event.

Beside the display, another highlight of the iPhone X is said to its front-camera.

Apple showed iOS 11 to developers at a conference earlier this year, and is likely to release it with the new iPhone models.

However, the KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also claimed the new iPhone will support faster charging, but fans will have to spend more money on a Lightning-to-USB-C cable and wall adapter for that feature.
