Apple will reveal its much-anticipated iPhone 8 — if that is indeed what the Cupertino company decides to call its latest flagship phone — on Sept. 12.
Held at the Steve Jobs Theater, part of the new Apple Park campus which opened in April, the event will unveil the company’s latest line of iPhones. Last year, that consisted of two models: the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7S.
iPhone 7 sales led to an all-time record quarter for Apple earlier this year. In its first fiscal quarter of 2017, Apple reported revenue of $78.4 billion helped along by record-breaking iPhones sales over last year’s holiday season.
Apple will be trying to outdo last year’s sales with the iPhone 8, which is expected to have a large OLED display and wireless charging capabilities. It is thought at least one version of the popular phone will cost $1,000 or more due to its size and features.
The live event will stream on all Apple devices as well as on Windows 10. iPhones, iPads and iPod touches must be running Safari on iOS 7.0 or later. Macs must have Safari 6.0.5 or later on OS X v10.8.5 or later while PCs must have Microsoft Edge on Windows 10.
