Apple has sent out media invites for an event at the new Steve Jobs Theatre on Tuesday, September 12 at the new Apple campus in Cupertino, California. Apple will celebrate its 10th anniversary with a new iPhone 8 launch. The new phone will showcase a vastly different screen, design, and specs.
Rumours suggest the iPhone 8 will feature a larger display, made possible by removing the Home Button and moving the fingerprint scanner. It is also said to feature wireless charging, new gesture controls and Face ID, a new form of facial recognition that will support Apple Pay.
