Apple invites press to Sept. 12 event at Apple Park's Steve Jobs Theater for 'iPhone 8'

Last updated

Apple on Thursday confirmed rumors by sending out a media invite to a Sept. 12 press event, where the company will likely introduce the OLED-based "iPhone 8" and a slew of other products.

The gathering is set to take place at 10 a.m. Pacific time in the Steve Jobs Theater, located at the company's new Apple Park campus in Cupertino. It was previously uncertain if Apple would have the theater completed in time for this fall.

The invite graphic simply uses a multi-colored Apple logo, paired with the blurb "Let's meet at our place."

AppleInsider will be in attendance live, providing full coverage and analysis of the event, which is expected to be headlined by the "iPhone 8," but also include an "iPhone 7s Plus," "iPhone 7s," new Apple Watch, and new Apple TV.

The "iPhone 8" is predicted to have an edge-to-edge, 5.8-inch OLED display, omitting a home button and Touch ID in favor of a "software bar," new gestures, and 3D facial recognition. It should also come equipped with wireless charging, faster cable charging, and an upgraded "A11" processor.

Two other phones, the "iPhone 7s" and "iPhone 7s Plus," should mostly resemble the LCD-based iPhone 7 line, but include some "8" features like wireless charging and the "A11."

A fifth-generation Apple TV will add long-awaited support for 4K and HDR, matched by upgraded iTunes content. The Apple Watch "Series 3" will reportedly include LTE, making it more independent of an iPhone.
