The Cupertino-based giant has scheduled the event for September 12 at 10:00 a.m (10.30PM in India). As is the case every year, it is nearly time for the new iPhone to get unveiled and we might see a few other announcements happening as well on the same day, when Apple for the first time is going to have the presser at the Steve Jobs Theater.
Apple has confirmed it will announce its next round of products on September 12. Also, if the rumors are to be believed, we might see the regular upgrade from the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus and then the iPhone 8 as the special edition one. The speculations about the likely features and specifications of the upcoming smartphone has kept the tech grapevine churning for months now.
As rumoured, Apple will take on Samsung's flagship with an edge-to-edge bezel-less display.
It's expected that the tech giant will reveal a barrage of products during the keynote presentation, including a new, more expensive iPhone that features a almost bezel-less display and new facial recognition technology, as well as an iterative update to the current iPhone 7 - likely the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus. However, Apple is rumoured to introduce a 512GB storage variant in the new iPhone. Having chose to give the last iPhones, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, a smaller-than-expected makeover, the pressure is on to deliver something spectacular with the next models.
Other rumours have suggested that delays in the handset's new fingerprint sensor mean its release could be delayed until October at the earliest. In addition, it could also bring in wireless charging capabilities.
The iPhone 7S line is expected to feature incremental updates, but the anniversary phone could get a whole new look. This was first seen on the iPhone 4.
