It seems barely a day goes by without there being a new rumour regarding the iPhone 8.
This time, top iPhone tipster Benjamin Geskin has suggested on Twitter that the launch date for the new device will shortly be formally announced as 17 September with the device will then be available in stores a week later on 25 September.
Apple's iPhone 8 / 7s Keynote will be held on September 17.
Sales September 25.

Geskin said on Twitter, “Apple’s iPhone 8/7s Keynote will be held on September 17. Sales September 25.” However, he did note that this date is still not 100% confirmed.
The top tipster is certainly risking his reputation with these claims as many feel that at September release may be a little premature.
This date is however in line with that of the last five years of iPhone unveilings but the fact that the 17th is also a Sunday throws another spanner in the works.
If the device were to be launched in September, based on Apple’s recent history, some followers believe that a release date on the 6th or 13th would be more likely.
As we know there have been plenty of leaks regarding the specs of the new flagship device but up until the now mentions of the release date have been few and far between.
We are expecting the new iPhone to come with iOS 11 software and a new A11 processor and both of these will be unveiled at next month’s WWDC conference.
This combination of power and precision will reportedly be backed up by a new OLED display and a vertically aligned dual lens camera.
We are already aware that it will adopt a new design with a glass front and rear as opposed to metal along with the notable absence of a physical home button.
