Apple's upcoming iPhone 8: Possible Sept. 12 launch date, slower wireless charging

Apple Inc. (AAPL) Stake Cut by Reilly Financial Advisors LLC

The upcoming september 12 product event of Apple could very well be its most important over the past several years.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Apple intends to hold their annual iPhone reveal at event on September 12 where the tenth-anniversary iPhone (a.k.a. iPhone 8) will be the main event. Wireless charging of these phones is expected to be functional only with the chargers made for Apple products, under the program MfI (Made for iPhone).

In such a scenario, it seems more likely that Apple might unveil the iPhone 8 at the September 12 key note but schedules it sales a bit later in the year - giving the new iPhone 7s and 7s Plus much-needed space to breathe and sell. The latest Qi 1.2 standard can support up to 15 watt charging which will not be supported by the iPhone 8. We're still expecting to get regular "S" versions of the current iPhone 7, but Apple might also be revealing an entirely new generation altogether. New #iPhone 8 leaks, rumors, render, and concept designs have been surfacing online nearly every week.

Apple sold 78.3 million of the iPhone 7 by the end of January, the most ever, even after reviewers had complained that it wasn't much of an upgrade from the previous version. The extended display will also include a virtual home button, which will be replacing the Touch ID button seen in iPhone models until now. According to analyst research firm Creative Strategies Carolina Milanesi, the new iPhone will have facial recognition technology that allows users to unlock the device, and advanced augmented reality capabilities. The tech giant is expected to launch a bunch of new devices, the primary ones being a new 4K Apple TV, a new Apple Watch and three new iPhones. However, the blog claims that the iPhone 8 will employ a 7.5W (5V/1.5A) wireless charging option rather than a faster 15W wireless charging option.

The iPhone 8 is expected to come with a redesigned camera. The price may also be bumped up to $999 for the 64GB model whereas 256GB and 512GB will be the higher storage variants. Moreover, Apple Watch 3 could also make an appearance at the event. However, if things do not go as planned, Apple is likely to use the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium as the venue for this year's keynote as well.
