Apple looks like it’s going to go big for the new iPhone, with strong rumors that 2017’s model will undergo big changes as it’s the handset’s tenth anniversary.
That could very well start with the name, which is likely to be the iPhone 8, rather than the iPhone 7S, marking the phone out as a big jump rather than a minor refresh.
Based on early rumors it seems the design, specifications and features are all set to receive a major overhaul, and we’ve sifted through all the whispers on the internet to bring you the definitive guide to what’s coming on the new iPhone 8.
Release Date – Likely to launch early September 2017
Based on previous years, this one is easy to predict: the iPhone 8 release date is September 2017, assuming the 7S doesn’t pop up.
In fact, with the exception of the iPhone SE, every Apple handset since the iPhone 5 in 2012 has been launched in September, and there’s no reason to think that will change for the iPhone 8.
We can even get more specific than that, as Apple held its iPhone 7 event on September 7, while the events for the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6 were both on September 9 of their respective launch years.
