Apple expected to unveil iPhone 8 on September 12

Apple announced that its Board of Directors has authorized a stock buyback plan on Tuesday, May 2nd that permits the company to buyback $50.00 billion in shares.

The launch event, if confirmed, will take place about a week after Samsung begins selling its Galaxy Note 8, which has features such as one of the largest smartphone screens and a dual-lens camera similar to iPhone 7's, the WSJ reported.

It's that time of year again - and it looks like Apple is planning to unveil its latest iPhone on September 12 this year, according to Dow Jones.

On the tenth anniversary of iPhone that was first announced on January 9, 2007, by Steve Jobs and released on June 29, Apple is preparing for the next big launch, Mirror reported. It will be interesting to see if the higher price due to the increased technology will ultimately become a deterrent for consumers. If rumors are to be believed, the iPhone 8 will be the most expensive iPhone model yet, with prices starting at over $1,000 (Rs.63,800 approx.).

Apple supplier Wistron dropped a massive hint when an exec said, 'new features like waterproof and wireless charging now require some different testing, ' according to Nikkei Asian Review. Users expect nothing but the best of features and specs in the upcoming iPhone 8-and September 12 event. In Android devices, wireless charging is pretty much a mainstay these days; however, in case of Apple, iPhone 8 would be the first device to get wireless charging feature. Apple will launch its iPhone 7s and 7s Plus along with its long rumored iPhone 8 or X. The phones will most probably shipped on the Friday of the following week, September 22. Technological advances are delivering ever diminishing returns, and there hasn't been a major innovation in mobile technology for several years. New #iPhone 8 leaks, rumors, render, and concept designs have been surfacing online nearly every week. While the popularity of Apple devices is not in doubt, there has been a feeling in recent releases that they have been rather conservative.

A report claims that iPhone 8 wireless charging will be slower than standard speeds, and that it will not be compatible with the charging pads that are now available in the market. Apple iPhone 8 will also have a 3D face recognition module on the front for unlocking the phone. Apple's hierarchy has been extremely positive about the potential of AR, and it seems that Apple is fully committed to supporting and delivering it.
