With September quickly approaching, the fate of Apple's next batch of iPhones, including the Phone 8, is still up in the air. The latest rumor suggests that Apple may unveil its iPhones at a Sept. 12 event, with the phones going on sale the following week on Sept. 22, reports French site Mac4Ever (via 9to5 Mac).
The exact date is still anyone's guess. For the past few years, Apple's iPhone event has happened in early to mid-September on a Tuesday or Wednesday. Last year's iPhone 7 was announced on Sept. 7, but event invites didn't go out until the week before. So there's a chance we won't hear the exact date until days before the event.
The iPhone 7S, 7S Plus, and 8 could then go on sale a week-and-a-half later on Friday, Sept. 22, Mac4Ever reported. It's also unofficial Apple tradition to release its new iPhones to the public on a Friday about a week or two after the announcement. While this seems like business as usual, several reports have claimed that the iPhone 8 sale date could be delayed until October or November. This latest rumor suggests that this won't happen, but it doesn't comment on availability of the iPhones at launch.
