Here's What to Expect from Apple's September 12 iPhone Event

  • Apple's upcoming event features a colorful Apple

Apple will officially launch its new iPhone on 12 September at an event in its Cupertino, California, headquarters.

Since Apple is hoping to introduce OLED in all iPhones by 2018, moving to a cheaper alternative would be the best thing to do.

Apple's newest high-end iPhone is set to be unveiled next week, which will see the company shifting to OLED technology for its flagship phone.

Despite a decline in overall sales, Apple still had the best-selling models which are the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.




The iPhone 8 could cost more and speculation has suggested the price could reach $2000.

Other iPhone 8 rumors that have been creating a buzz include a redesign, significant changes to the camera, a glass body, wireless charging, facial recognition, OLED screen and new color options including "Blush Gold" color that is said to replace the Rose Gold color that's now available. Apple is expected to follow a similar timeframe this year with the iPhone 8 being released on September 22nd. But one of the main reasons behind the rumoured sky-high price is Samsung's monopoly over organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screens that Apple is expected to incorporate into the iPhone 8. With the iPhone 7 out last year, the company's previous naming pattern dictates this year's would be the 7S.

Full-screen design - The iPhone 8 will not have a traditional "home" button and will not support fingerprint recognition. Wistron is said to have recently started assembling iPhone SE units at its plant in Karnataka, India. Sources close to the matter believe that the edge-to-edge glass smartphone will not reach customers until the month of October. Still, September 15 and September 22 are the most likely dates for pre-orders and launch, respectively. The expensive display of the iPhone 8 could mean a higher price for the device. It's expected to go on sale about a week and a half later. While LG makes an OLED of comparable quality to Samsung's, it's simply not equipped to make them at the scale Apple needs - at least not yet.
