Ever so often we can look forward to great flagship phones and Apple is always one of the top contenders, if not the one to beat. Apple’s new iPhone 8 will be officially unveiled today and a lot of people are excited.
It will be the 10th anniversary of the iPhone which means that Apple will be shooting to impress. There are already high expectations for the iPhone 8 which is said to be a radical change for Apple.

Tim Cook is expected to unveil the iPhone 8 at an event in California today, September 12. In August the company sent invitations out to journalists inviting them to an event at its new Apple Park headquarters at 10 am Pacific time.
We call today the official unveiling because Apple suffered a major leak two days prior to this launch giving fans a taste of what to expect by revealing a good number of the iPhone 8’s features.
5 Things You Should Know About The iPhone 8
Name and Price
Following the latest leaks, the iPhone 8 may not even be the iPhone 8 but rather the iPhone X with a price range in the region of £1,000. Some titillating features include wireless charging, facial recognition, an edge-to-edge display and – for the first time – no home button.
To further confuse matters, Apple is expected to release the device alongside two other phones, called the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. The 8 and 8 Plus models are likely to be cheaper, close to the current iPhone 7 and 7 Plus prices of £599 and £719.
The leaks suggest that the premium iPhone X will come in at least three colours: white, black and copper or gold. White and black colours are fairly standard on iPhones, but a third colour is thought to be coming in either a copper or a champagne gold hue.
The iOS 11 was Apple’s latest software unveiled in June and will ship on the new device. The major feature is the peer-to-peer Apple Pay and a redesigned Control Centre.
It also has new safety features, including a do not disturb while driving mode and an Emergency SOS option that will lock thieves out when its owner is in danger.

The iPhone X should be somewhere between the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The leaks of the schematics could be around 144mm tall and 71mm wide. Thanks to the almost edgeless design, it will have the largest screen of any iPhone ever made.
Since Apple has dismissed rumours that production delays could affect the release of the phone, predicting strong sales in the coming months, it is likely that the iPhone 8 will be available for pre-order on September 15 and hit stores on Friday September 22.
