Apple Inc. has its launch event around the corner where they are supposedly launching the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus alongside the iPhone 8. Recent reports suggest that the launch date could be September 12. The reports are coming from a French website Mac4Ever, which claims that it confirmed this from a few French telecom companies.
Reports claim that the iPhone 8 will be launched on September 12 and will go on sale starting September 22. Usually, Apple launch event takes place at around this time only. However, this contradicts the earlier reports which suggested that the iPhone 8 launch could be delayed due to the new technology that Apple is planning to bring for the upcoming smartphone. Meanwhile, we have to wait for the official confirmations from the company.
