iPhone 8 release date, features, and specs

What can we expect from the iPhone 8 rumours?

Rumours suggest that the iPhone 8 will herald some significant changes when it arrives in September, as Apple prepares to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the iPhone.

The biggest of these will likely be the inclusion of an all-glass display and a revamped home button, as well as beefier hardware and larger base storage.

We're also expecting this year's flagship to be the most expensive smartphone ever made by Apple, likely to exceed the $1,000 mark.

Release date

Apple has always stuck to a September release for its new smartphone flagships, however analyst reports suggest development has been held up by slower deliveries of custom made components. While November is still a reasonable release window, it is possible the device could be delayed into 2018.
