Per CNBC this morning, Apple will reveal the iPhone 8 on Tuesday, September 12th. If you were paying attention, this is exactly what the rumor mill predicted last week. Additionally, based on historical data of iPhone announcements and subsequent releases, it's very likely that we'll then have the iPhone 8 in our hands on September 22nd.

If you've missed out on any of the details on what the iPhone 8 is rumored to include, our sister site, MacRumors, has a fantastic roundup detailing all that and more. Cliffsnotes basically amounts to we're thinking there's going to be an edge to edge screen, wireless charging, dual cameras, and the iPhone 8 is dropping the home button for some solution that has yet to be revealed. Of course, the new iPhone will be faster, and is rumored to have a maximum storage capacity of 512GB which is pretty wild for a phone.

    I dont think that will make me change my 6S+ for now but its always interesting to see what comes up 😊

  • Wizard of Odyssey

    And JUST LIKE THAT, my 6S is feeling awfully slow and janky.

    • Stetch

      Same with my 7+ ....

      See? This is why people get upset with Apple. Planned obsolescence! They know we all want to throw our old iPhone's in the bin when they announce a new iPhone. And yet they do it anyway! Bastards.

      • Milotorou

        I guess a lot of people do.... but I dont.

        My iPhone 6s+ is doing fine, everything is smooth and works flawless, I see no reason to change it yet.

        I’m pretty sure Wisard was joking that his/her 6s was suddenly feeling slow - not that it had actually got slow.

        That said, my 6 has been feeling slow (and multi-tasking has practically disappeared) for a while now.

      • NaeemTHM

        I was joking too haha.

    i will not resist 🙂 i'll get an iP8 + 256Gb as soon as i can

    • Wizard of Odyssey

      Same here. As a wise man once said, RESISTANCE IS USELESS, YOU WILL BE ASSIMILATED. If the rumors are true, and they offer a 512GB version, I might go that way. What's another hundred bucks if we're already over a grand? Might as well get AppleCare on it too at that price.

      • curtisrshideler

        At least I'll be do for an upgrade.... like that'll save me anything. 😉

  • lezrock

    What happened to the iPhone 7(as)s? Straight to 8?!

    • h4nd0fg0d

      There will also be an iPhone 7s/7s+, retaining the physical home button, bezels, LCD displays but will opt for all glass backs for wireless charging.

  • h4nd0fg0d

    Cha-ching take my$!

    • gonif

      At least make sure it's not a lemon first. I'm thrilled you have such disposable income, but (much like a good stripper) you should at least make Apple work to earn your money.

      • Eli Hodapp

        Which iPhone has been a lemon?

      • h4nd0fg0d

        Have had all but the very first and rest assured, none were as you say 'lemons.'

  • Lickzy

    By some act of God, I hope they announce a new mini.... but it won't happen

  • DanCJ

    Man, I really hate the rumours that they’re bringing out a 7s, 7s+ and 8 all at the same time - and the 512gb rumour.

    It used to be nice and easy. Every time I upgraded I’d just get the top iPhone in the top storage bracket and I’d have a phone that would last me the next two or three years.

    Now they’re bringing out phones above that, so I’m thrown into turmoil about which one to get. It was bad enough deciding between the 6 and the 6+, now I’ve got to choose between three phones - and between 256 and 512gb.


    (Clearly this is on me not Apple - but I wish they weren’t doing this)

  • seantyas

    Ive finally gotten over all of it. I have the 7 plus 256 gb and its fine, and itll be fine next year as well. I was getting big into ios gaming til i got a nintendo switch and havent bought a single ios game since... such a better experience. Apple not backing gaming was foolish.

  • RunningWild

    My 5S 64gb is still going strong thanks to a new battery being put in by Apple. Really happy with the form factor. Don't want to update to iOS11 ever though..
