Yes, the iPhone 8 is indeed launching on September 12

Apple Event

As expected, Apple has sent out media invites for its annual fall event, being held Tuesday, Sept. 12 at 10:00 a.m.in the Steve Jobs Theatre at the company's new Apple Park campus in Cupertino. The facial recognition system will likely be powered by a 3D scanning camera, which will also be used with the company's ARKit augmented reality update for iOS 11.

The latest gadget will be revealed alongside new versions of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus at the new Steve Jobs Theater inside Apple's headquarters, nicknamed the "Spaceship" or "Fruit Loop".

If reports are anything to go by we are less than two weeks away from the launch of next iPhone. The high-end model, which could cost as much as $1,000, will be the most transformative of the trio.

Get Ready To Swipe: The iPhone 8 Is Getting Rid Of The Home Button

There's nothing that visually hints at a new iPhone, so, sure, we're assuming it's the iPhone 8, the 10-year anniversary edition of the handset that's changed 100 million lives.

The reason behind these speculations come from the various reports saying that the new phone will have Apple's first Bezel-less display, wireless charging while it will also drop its Touch ID technology. The display's corners may also be curved instead of pointed, and, with an OLED panel, that would make the entire front a seamless-looking slate of black. They're expected to be less expensive. The show will also be available to livestream here. Whatever it ends up being called, it seems certain the new iPhone will be significantly different to Apple's current handsets. Streaming via Apple TV requires an Apple TV (2nd or 3rd generation) with software 6.2 or later or an Apple TV (4th generation). Apple has reportedly been talking to movie studios about producing and acquiring 4K content for iTunes, which users could play on the new Apple TV.
