Apple Launch Event Set for September 12; iPhone 8 Coming?

Majority of Brits would upgrade to iPhone 8 despite price hike

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

It is also rumored that Apple may choose to mark its anniversary by launching iPhone 10 or iPhone X, or perhaps iPhone Air, iPhone Pro or iPhone Edition, to promote the Apple iPad and watch.

The iPhone 8 will be the first iPhone in history to support wireless charging out of the box, a feature that's been available on Android phones for years. It will be interesting to see if the higher price due to the increased technology will ultimately become a deterrent for consumers. While we will still wait for confirmation, this info provides strong reasoning that the radically changed iPhone 8 and several other products are going to be announced during the second week of next month.

Rumours also say that Apple would be publicizing many iPhones in the event to happen which would also have the one which would look cosmetically similar to present generation with internals those are all updated.

China: India is Pulling Troops from the Disputed Doklam Border Region
India and China regularly have small skirmishes, though there has not been a bullet fired between the two countries in decades. The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, however, vowed to continue to patrol the disputed area, according to Chinese media.

Nothing has been confirmed so it is best to take all this with a grain of salt or sugar, whichever suits you. iPhone 8 is expected to be launched on 12th September.

With the official launch of the handset looming, we've teamed up with Benjamin for this exclusive interview to share a detailed insight into what to expect from Apple this September. Apple will reportedly host an event to unveil the phones, along with a new Apple Watch and 4K Apple TV in about two weeks. It added the device will launch in September this year. This buyback authorization allows the iPhone maker to purchase up to 6.5% of its shares through open market purchases. And while facial recognition sounds great, rumor has it that the company is ready to bring another futuristic touch to their iPhone.

Apple also needs to deliver a device that gets people talking, and makes the company appear an innovator at the cutting-edge of technology once more.

In this case, by the time Apple's competitors are able to catch up (which could be a matter of multiple years), Apple is already on to the next big thing for the iPhone. Central to this will be augmented reality technology, meant to deliver both gaming and security features. This new technology could prove to be a more useful hands-free alternative to the fingerprint, so it's likely Apple will want to discuss this further at the show.
