Apple confirms worst kept secret, new iPhone launch on September 12

The Apple iPhone event is going to launch the new iPhones for 2017, including the first OLED iPhone.

Aside from the possible iPhone 8, Apple is likely announce an array of upgrades to last year's iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. This will also allow Apple to continue with the numerical order for the generic models (like iPhone 8, 9, etc.) and again after a decade, it can call 20 commemorative model the "iPhone XX".

As every Apple fan already knows by now, iPhone 8 will be accompanied by iPhone 7S and 7S Plus on September 12.

Apple also released an official "Notes and Known Issues" for the latest beta, featuring a long and detailed list with resolved and known issues. While we've been referring to them as iPhone 7S, 7S Plus and iPhone 8, they will, according to Seth Weintraub, be iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone Edition.

But today, a new report from Dutch site iCulture suggests an entirely different name: iPhone X.

What to expect from the September 12 event?

This is because this marks the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, so it is rather appropriate that the redesigned model will be named in honor of that achievement. Apple is expected to do away with the traditional home button on the front, with the screen extending to the edges at the top, bottom and sides of the device, with much slimmer bezels.

Apple iPhone X's starting price is said to be $999 (€834/Rs 63,896), making it the costliest Apple phone to date.

A beta version of iOS 11 is now being offered, but you have to sign up to test it. To put that into perspective, the iPhone 7 is 4.7 inches and the iPhone 7 Plus is 5.5 inches. Too bad about not using iPhone Pro, though.

The launch of iPhone 8 is approaching soon and there is a lot of buzz in the user's mind regarding what all new features will be included in the device.

The company sent out invitations Thursday announcing September 12 as the date for the company's annual post-Labor Day showcase. However, the report claims the devices to be called as the "iPhone 8" and the "iPhone 8 Plus".
