Each September, Apple grabs the sector's consideration with an iPhone-anchored event within the Bay House of California. Until the corporate comes to a decision to mic drop and peace out or sell off the phone trade for warm tubs, this yr might be no exception. iPhone 8 (iPhone Professional), Apple Watch Sequence 3, Apple TV 4K, HomePod, and extra may all be featured within the keynote, along side the overall betas for iOS 11, macOS Prime Sierra, watchOS 4, and tvOS 11.

  • iPhone 6s event: September 9, 2015
  • iPhone 7 event: September 7, 2016

Previous occasions are the most efficient indicator of long run occasions, however they are not very best. Apple can and can throw curveballs each time the corporate's logistics or technique calls for. Nonetheless, in response to the above trend, it is imaginable shall we see the iPhone 8 event:

  • As early as September 6, 2017
  • As past due as September 13, 2017

The place will Apple dangle the iPhone 8 Event?

Closing yr's iPhone 7 Event used to be held on the Invoice Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. It is a cavernous venue totally in a position to keeping each the folk and demo spaces Apple wishes to correctly blow their own horns its fall product line.

This yr, although, Apple is transferring into its outstanding new campus, Apple Park, whole with the Steve Jobs Theater. If the brand new on-campus venue is in a position, what higher position to blow their own horns the brand new iPhone... and extra?

Apple might be streaming the iPhone 8 event, proper?

Virtually no doubt! Apple has streamed all of its occasions for the previous few years by means of on iPhone, iPad, and Mac, and the Apple Occasions app on Apple TV.

Rumor has it Apple will introduce no longer simply two however 3 new iPhones this yr:

  • 5.5-inch iPhone Plus
  • All new iPhone Professional

The primary two could be analogous to the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones we now have loved since iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in 2014.

The unique Apple Watch used to be proven off on the iPhone 6 event in September of 2014. What higher time to blow their own horns Apple Watch Series 3 than on the iPhone event in September of 2017? Here is what we would possibly get:

  • Apple Watch Sequence 3 in 38mm and 42mm

LTE networking would make Apple Watch much less depending on iPhone.

(Despite the fact that a few of us would nonetheless industry the function for all the time on show...)

We must additionally see the continuation of Apple's a hit partnerships, like Nike+ and Hermes, and a brand new fall choice of watch bands.

The most important function will get, after all, could be 4K and HDR. Which means that iTunes 4K/HDR to head along side it. Confidently that comes with full-on Dolby Imaginative and prescient and Dolby Atmos reinforce to head along side it.

It could be a excellent fit for the 10-bit HEVC (H.265) reinforce Apple has been including to iOS and macOS, and the A-series processors.

iMac Professional and... Mac mini?

Apple has already introduced iMac Professional so, a short lived reminder apart, it is difficult to look the corporate going too some distance into the Mac lineup once more, particularly when September in most cases has iPhone and iOS gadgets within the highlight.

Mac mini, although seriously past due for an update, would in a similar fashion distract from the event's narrative. In all probability subsequent yr when the brand new, modular Mac Professional debuts?

Any longer issues?

Apple can nonetheless marvel us. ResearchKit and CareKit, that have been near-miraculous for plenty of within the trade, are two contemporary examples. That mentioned, September occasions focal point on iPhone, and iPhone stays Apple's greatest trade.
