Apple will finally unveil the much anticipated iPhone 8 on September 12, with the device set to go on sale on September 22, a new report has claimed.
Alongside the iPhone 8, the iPhone 7s, 7s Plus, Apple Watch 3 and a new 4K Apple TV will also be unveiled at the event, which is rumoured to be taking place at Apple’s new Spaceship HQ.
According to mac4ever, these dates have already been given to phone carries, with the site saying “several testimonies corroborate our sources”.
Apple is yet to formally announce an event, although there is expected to be an official announcement imminently.
Going off previous Apple release dates, September 6 or September 12 is normally around the time the firm unveils new products.
While Apple has been doing its best to keep information regarding the iPhone 8 under wraps, leaks about the device have increased of late as the device reportedly enters mass production.
Earlier this week serial tech leaker Benjamin Geskin shared some images which claim to show parts of the iPhone 8 during production and a video which claimed to show the iPhone 8 in a Foxconn production plant.

The iPhone 8 is expected to come with a 5.8 inch all screen display. Despite having a larger display, the phone will only be slightly bigger than iPhone 7 due to the lack of bezels around the phone.
This week also saw more leaked information regarding some of the features that are expected to be included in Apple’s new handset.
A report by 9to5Mac featured what was said to be the iPhone 8’s new 3D camera which will include facial recognition technology capable of scanning a face in ‘millionths of a second” and which iPhone owners will use to unlock the device.
The new facial recognition feature could be a replacement for Touch ID, which reports from earlier this year claimed Apple would drop from the iPhone 8.
Despite reportedly going on sale on September 22, it may be a while before the iPhone 8 is available to buy in Thailand.
Previous reports claimed that due to supply constraints and overwhelming demand, the device will only be available in limited quantities in the weeks following its launch.
