Rumour: Apple will unveil iPhone 8 on 12 September

We might know a whole lot more about Apple's next iPhone in just a few weeks.

The September/October timeframe has traditionally been when Apple has taken the wraps off its latest iPhone models for a given year, and it appears that this year, 12 September (13 September here in Australia thanks to that pesky international dateline) will be when we'll formally see the Apple iPhone 8 and/or the iPhone 7s.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Apple has scheduled a launch event for 12 September 2017, where it's expected to unveil new phones. It's always feasible, but unlikely that it could use such an event to reveal other Apple devices, but the timing fits with the expected release dates for iPhones generally.

There have been constant rumours surrounding the iPhone 8, as there always are with any iPhone launch, although in recent years, Apple's had less luck in keeping all things iPhone under wraps. It's expected that the iPhone 8 will feature a full glass display, possibly with no "home" button, wireless charging and facial recognition unlock features.

In strict terms, this year should see the announcement of the iPhone 7s, following Apple's typical structure of a new model one year and its "s" upgrade the following year. Rumours suggest that we may see up to three new iPhones, with the 7s, 7s plus and 8 all tipped to make their debut in the iPhone's 10th anniversary year.
