iPhone 8 release date
Apple’s iPhone 8 is the company’s next big launch, and we’re already 3D Touch deep into new rumors about its 2017 smartphone.
September 2017 launch for iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus
Slightly later October 2017 date for the all-screen iPhone 8
The iPhone 8 release date is the routine new iPhone rumor we expect to stay the same every year, but Apple may do something different here, too.
Apple has launched a new iPhone in September every year since the iPhone 5 in 2012. September iPhone launches have a pretty consistent track record.
iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus may still launch in September sporting a worthy, but ultimately predictable design and feature upgrade.
iPhone 8 may deviate from this plan, launching a little bit later (still before Black Friday and Cyber Monday) due to reported production delays.
iPhone 8 size
How big will the iPhone 8 screen size be? Rumors for this are all over the place, but everything says it’ll be larger – around 5.8 inches, just like the Galaxy S8.
Don’t worry. We expect a 4.7-inch iPhone 7S and 5.5-inch iPhone 7S Plus, alongside it, but they probably won’t have an all-screen front.
Speaking of which, there’s been talk of axing the physical home button and building the Touch ID fingerprint sensor into the screen itself, a rumor that dates back almost two years.
3D face-scanning sensor
There’s a good chance that the iPhone 8 won’t have a Touch ID sensor at all, with Apple ditching it for an on-screen home button.
