Apple 12 September event
Apple confirmed the event date for iPhone 8 launch
After numerous rumors, Apple has confirmed it will hold its first ever event at the Steve Jobs Theater located on its Cupertino, California campus. This will be the place which will witness the launch of the much-awaited smartphone of the year. Apple has finally sent out media invites for the event, where it will unveil its next generation of iPhone.

The Cupertino-based giant has scheduled the event for September 12 at 10:00 a.m (10.30PM in India). The event will take place at Steve Jobs Theatre located in Apple Park campus in Cupertino, California.

The invite reads, "Let's meet at our place. Please join us for the first-ever event at the Steve Jobs Theatre in Cupertino".

It is expected that the company will launch iPhone 7S, iPhone 7S Plus and the anniversary edition iPhone 8 at the event.

Now, when Apple has confirmed the event on 12th September for removing the curtains from iPhone 8, iPhone 7S and the iPhone 7S Plus and as per the earlier reports where it has also been mentioned that the smartphones will be going on sale a week and a half after the launch, which is September 22. With the confirmed dates Apple maintains the arena, dates mentioned here go in line with Apple's past record wherein it launches the handset on Tuesday or Wednesday and makes it available on a Friday.

Some of the best features of iPhone 8 will be:

Display of iPhone 8

Speaking if the iPhone 8’s display, 2017 will mark the first year Apple will shift from an LCD panel to an OLED panel in the iPhone.

Like Samsung’s class-leading Galaxy phones, Apple’s iPhone 8 will feature an OLED panel. Also like Samsung’s recent Galaxy phones, the iPhone 8 display is expected to be a flexible panel that curves on either side at the edges. As we noted above, however, we expect the curve to be much more subtle — just a slight downward bend for styling.

Biometrics of iPhone 8

In addition to a revolutionary new Touch ID scanner that is invisible to the user, a fresh new report from Ming-Chi Kuo states that Apple’s new iPhone 8 will include a facial recognition feature. Here’s a note from his report:

Judging by the bio-recognition patents that Apple has applied for, we believe it is leaning toward facial recognition technology rather than iris recognition. However, we note that the technical challenges of facial recognition include: (1) algorithms; (2) hardware design; and (3) the build-out of a database for verification and authentication, which could be time-consuming. As such, before Apple can fully replace the fingerprint system with facial recognition, a combination of the two steps of bio-recognition could be a valid solution for enhancing transactions security.

While it’s unlikely that Touch ID will go anywhere anytime soon, the addition of facial recognition would add yet another layer of security to the iPhone.

As expected on September 12 Apple may bring one of the best smartphones of 2017, keeping all the hopes of iPhone lovers true. Stay tuned to App Gyaan for all of your Apple event related coverage.
