Apple iPhone 8 launch on September 12: $1000 price to wireless charging

Posted August 30, 2017

The event is expected to feature updates to the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, called the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus, as well as a significant new handset with a different design and a screen which nearly covers the entire front panel. According to reports, the change in size is due to some new features the new models will have, including the wireless charging support. Now, few reports also suggest that Apple might announce an advanced version of previous iPhones, iPhone 7S & iPhone 7S Plus, which would probably feature a new chipset, better camera & display as well as some battery improvements. One to celebrate the iPhone's anniversary and push Apple's phone into the next generation of nearly-bezel-less smartphones.

Analysts have predicted that the upcoming flagship device iPhone 8 could make the Cupertino-based giant the first company to reach and uphold a USD1 trillion market cap.

Being the 10th-anniversary model, it is expected to come with some outstanding features.

We already know that earlier this month reports claimed that the upgraded iPhone 7s would be thicker to switch to glass backing and wireless charging. From what we can gather so far, Apple initially wanted to embed the Touch ID sensor underneath the OLED display itself, only to abandon this approach after encountering a yield issues during initial production runs.

Two lower end iPhones will be launch at the same time, one is expected to be similar to the iPhone 7 whilst the second will be the iPhone 7 Plus. On that date, Apple is set to announce the new iPhone models, as well as cellular Apple Watch and a 4K Apple TV set-top box. Therefore, it's pretty obvious that Apple wants to unveil the highly anticipated iPhone 8 during September. According to analyst research firm Creative Strategies Carolina Milanesi, the new iPhone will have facial recognition technology that allows users to unlock the device, and advanced augmented reality capabilities. The Watch 3 would serve as the fitness tracker or health monitor that you will ever need, besides also serving all the functionalities that you'd ever expect out of a smartwatch. On average, equities analysts predict that Apple Inc. will post $9.02 EPS for the current fiscal year.
