iPhone 8 latest News, Release Date and Rumors
Apple's iPhone 8 release date is expected to be three months from now and due to Apple's 10th anniversary iPhone 8 will be very big changes are like bellows:
1) 3D Touch deep into new rumors about its 2017 smartphone.
2) It's the tenth anniversary of the iPhone and the design is due for big changes. We haven't seen a brand new look in three years, so prepare to be new look.
3) The most immediate change may be to the name: iPhone 8, iPhone X or iPhone Edition, instead of just iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus. This is a major refresh for Apple and its name deserves a giant leap.
4) Every iPhone 8 rumor really gives us a sense that Apple is overhauling its phone with at least one premium design – what we're calling the iPhone 8 – while also providing a basic specs bump for an iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus.
5) We're sorting through all of the rumors to deliver the facts and cut through the far-fetched speculation, from the always-changing release date theories to the all-important iPhone 8 price.
Leak Rumors about iPhone 8 release date:
September 2017 launch for iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus but Slightly later October 2017 date the curved, all-screen iPhone 8
The iPhone 8 release date is the routine new iPhone rumor we expect to stay the same every year, but Apple may do something different here, too.
Apple has launched a new iPhone in September every year since the iPhone 5 in 2012. September iPhone launches have a pretty consistent track record.

Leak Rumors about iPhone 8 price
The iPhone 8 price may throw us for a curve ball come September since Apple is planning an all-new smartphone design. Here are the price rumors.
The smaller iPhone 7S could cost just as much as the 4.7-inch iPhone 7, running $649 in the US, £599 in the UK and AU$1,079 in Australia. That price really hasn't changed in the US, and it just recently went up in the UK (last year) and Australia (two years ago).
The iPhone 7S Plus price is also not expected to change based on the fact that the iPhone 7 Plus just saw a price hike (even in the US) to $769, £719 and AU$1,269. We don't need another price increase there.
Instead, Apple may launch an iPhone 8 Edition with a fancy curved display and an OLED panel (instead of LCD). That could send the bill of sale (for the parts) up 67%, and that expense may get passed onto you, the consumer.
The iPhone 8 price really depends on three things. Which version of the phone do you want? Is Apple releasing a third, more expensive edition with a fancy OLED display? And which storage capacities remain in 2017?
We've heard that the OLED model might come in just 64GB and 256GB varieties, but that 32GB isn't being killed off – the less desirable versions may get 32GB, 128GB and 256GB configurations.
Final words, already there are quite a few iPhone 8 rumors, but rumors is all they are for now, and there are certain things that we'd like to become fact. From a brand new look to new charging technologies, this is what we want to see:
1st rumor-a brand new design:
The last three generations of the iPhone have all had a similar look, so it's high time Apple changed things up.
Rumors point to a glass back and a curved screen on the iPhone 8, which would certainly make for a big change, but whether that or something else we want something new, so we can get excited about the look of the phone and not just the features.
2nd rumor-a dual-lens camera:
The iPhone 7 Plus already has a dual-lens camera and the iPhone 8 Plus is likely to as well, but early rumors suggest the standard iPhone 8 might stick with a single-lens snapper.
We hope that's not true, as the dual-lens camera Apple's using is one of the most exciting aspects of the iPhone 7 Plus. It's also a feature that a number of other phones, like the LG G5 and Huawei P9, have, so hopefully the iPhone 8 won't get left behind.
3rd rumor-fast and wireless charging:
Fast charging is now a common feature on Android phones, and an extremely useful one at that, yet the iPhone 7 doesn't have it, so the iPhone 8 really needs to.
Wireless charging isn't quite as essential, but is another fairly common feature outside Apple land, and given that there's no longer a headphone port in Apple's phones you need an adapter if you want to charge and plug a pair in at the same time, but if you could charge wirelessly that would be less of a factor.
4th rumor-a big battery boost:
Apple improved battery life for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, but they still lag behind the longest-lasting handsets around and battery life is a vital aspect of smartphones for many users, so we'd like to see more improvements here for the iPhone 8, even if it means making the phone thicker.
5th rumor-real innovation:
There's the sense that Apple has been playing it safe for the last couple of years, simply refining the iPhone 6 rather than doing much that's really new.
Arguably the only massive change the company has made is ditching the 3.5mm headphone jack and the jury is still out over whether that's even a good thing, so we want some major, positive innovation for the iPhone 8.
There's a good chance we'll get that too, as the iPhone 8 is going to be marking the phone's tenth anniversary, so there's every chance Apple will go all out.
