As the invite notes, this will be the first-ever event to be held at the Steve Jobs Theater in Apple Park at the new Cupertino campus.

The two other iPhone 8 models will be less transformative upgrades, more akin to the "S" models that Apple has historically introduced one year after unveiling newly numbered iPhones.

The invite doesn't exactly seem packed with further clues as to what to expect, unless the colours on the Apple logo are the ones the iPhone 8 will come in.

The tenth anniversary iPhone is expected to feature an OLED panel (the first time any iPhone has sported one) with an edge-to-edge display, a facial detection system, an "L"-shaped battery with long life, the Apple A11 chipset, and certain AR features". There will also be an infrared sensor that will let users unlock the device using face recognition even in low light situations.

Early this week, reports began to surface that Apple would be holding it's annual press conference on September 12. The home button will be sacrificed to make room for the display. Streaming via Apple TV requires an Apple TV (2nd or 3rd generation) with software 6.2 or later or an Apple TV (4th generation). With its $1 billion content initiative for 2018, Apple could announced forthcoming shows shot in 4K that will debut next year on either iTunes or Apple Music. Well, something sure as hell will, because that is when Apple's next event is taking place.

Apple iPhone 8 is expected to be the most expensive smartphone by Apple. The company is also expected to announce public availability of iOS 11, tvOS 11, watchOS 4, and macOS High Sierra. All of those updates have been in beta since the conference and are scheduled to be pushed out to the public this fall.
