Apple sends out invitations for the iPhone 8 event on September 12
Apple sent out invitations for its next iPhone event.
The so-called iPhone 8 will be announced on September 12 at the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple's new headquarters, Apple Park, in Cupertino, California.
Here's a look at the invitation:
This year's iPhone will mark the product's tenth anniversary, and most Apple watchers are expecting the company to make a big deal out of the event. It'll also be the first time Apple will publicly show off the new Apple Park headquarters.
Apple is rumored to be working on three new iPhone models this year. The first two will be minor updates to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. They'll look mostly the same, but with improvements to the phone's performance.
The iPhone 8 will be the real star. It's said to sport a new design with a screen that covers most of the front, except for a "notch" at the top for the front-facing camera and other sensors.
According to numerous leaks it'll look something like this:
Other rumored features include:
- A "3D" camera that can unlock the device using facial recognition.
- No more home button and Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
- Wireless charging.
- An OLED screen, which displays better colors with greater power efficiency.
- An improved dual-lens camera system, similar to the one on the iPhone 7 Plus.
- A $999 price tag, according to Brian X. Chen of The New York Times.
