According to recent reports, the iPhone 8, along with its iPhone 7s and 7s Plus siblings is expected to be unveiled on Tuesday, September 12 during a special event held by Apple.
Gizchina News of the week
The information comes from French blog Mac4Ever (Google Translate), and according to them, French mobile phone operators, like SFR, Orange and others, have been officially informed about Apple’s upcoming press event so that they could prepare inventory and marketing plans in advance.
If we are to believe the above about the September 12 press event date, then Apple should open pre-orders for the iPhone 8, iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus devices that same week on Friday, September 15, before the new phones begin shipping the following Friday, September 22!
This means that official invites could become available as early as next week then. Some other rumors insist also that Apple could choose to pre-announce the OLED iPhone and collect pre-orders throughout the month 🙂 Let’s see what happens.
