iPhone 8 release: Apple to hold launch event on September 12, reports say


Apple’s upcoming iPhone 8 will be unveiled at an event on September 12, according to leaked information from a French phone carrier. 

Tim Cook is expected to unveil three phones at the September event, including the iPhone 8 and an upgrade to Apple’s current offering, to be called the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus. 

Tradition dictates the three phones will go on sale a week after their announcement, with the most likely date being Friday September 22, according to French website Mac4Ever

The iPhone 8, as the all-new device is expected to be called, is set to feature a drastic redesign with a 5.5-inch edge-to-edge display. The handset itself will be little bigger than the iPhone 7, with Apple removing the home button to make way for the larger screen.
