Apple has set its annual iPhone event for September 12, as reported by The Wall Street Journal and rumored previously. Multiple sources have also told TechCrunch that this is the current date Apple is aiming for. But, as always, it doesn’t announce early in case it needs to shift the date based on whether it feels it’s ready. The additional factor, as indicated in the Journal, is whether the Steve Jobs Auditorium on its new campus is ready to host or not.
The event will likely play host to more than just the launch of new iPhones, though that will obviously be the headline product focus. Apple is said to be readying a new iPhone 7s and 7s Plus, to be launched alongside a new iPhone 8 (or whatever it ends up being called) which will apparently feature a nearly bezel-free design.
Other features said to be available in the forthcoming top-end iPhone, which will also mark the 10th anniversary of the iconic device, include facial recognition for unlocking, and an OLED display which will improve power efficiency and rendering of true black in graphics and images. Rumors also point to wireless charging as a potential feature addition.
