Apple will reportedly unveil its new iPhone lineup on September 12

The Apple iPhone X, Apple iPhone 8, or whatever the 10th-anniversary iPhone ends up being called, is expected to arrive in late 2017, and legions of fans are feverishly speculating about it. Rumors suggest the iPhone 8/iPhone X may be announced alongside the iPhone 7S and the 7S Plus. It’s likely to be an expensive, technical showcase phone released as a celebratory model.

The iPhone 7S and 7S Plus are expected to be very different. A lot of the information on the iPhone X is up in the air, but what we’re hearing sure keeps us interested. Very interested. Here’s what we’ve learned so far about the iPhone X.


According to the most recent report from The Wall Street Journal, Apple will unveil its iPhone its 2017 iPhone lineup at a product event on September 12. This corroborates previous rumors suggesting the same date. The company will reportedly introduce the iPhone 8 along with the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus.

Another rumor published by French site Mac4Ever, also said the iPhone X (or iPhone 8) will be revealed at an event on September 12. This will be followed by the phone going on sale September 22, says the report, quoting industry sources. The report explicitly mentions the iPhone X alongside the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus, and a new Apple Watch, suggesting the launch will be packed with products.

Most reports over the past months have claimed a September launch date is most likely, including Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, and analysts at JPMorgan. However, both these sources also say that while the iPhone 7S is already in production, supply of the iPhone 8 will be limited in the first month or so after the device’s launch.

This is said to be due to technical challenges and component shortages. Another report, from Apple Insider, notes Apple may produce 25 million units in September and 60 million during the holiday season. Previously, a report from Mac Otakara stated the iPhone 8 will be delayed past September and won’t ship until sometime in October or November. Pre-orders will open at launch, according to a research note for investment banking firm Drexel Hamilton obtained by MacRumors, but delivery wouldn’t happen until several weeks later.

Earlier in the rumor cycle, predictions from Economic Daily News said the new iPhone X won’t be delivered until October or November, and it was even possible Apple would announce it this year and start shipping to customers in 2018, according to a report from Business Insider. Components including memory chips and the OLED screen are causing the delays, say Digitimes, and the Economic Daily News.

Even the name is still unknown. It’s possible the device will be called the iPhone X, the iPhone 8, or even the iPhone Decade Edition, as a leaked screen protector, and Finisar, a laser manufacturer that’s expected to supply the iPhone’s depth-sensing camera component, claim.
