Meanwhile, a special 10th anniversary "iPhone X" could launch alongside the iPhone 8, according to Dutch site iCulture, which claims the rumour came from a "reliable" tipster. The popular rumor going around right now is that iPhone 8 preorders might commence on September 15, while shipping could start as soon as September 22. The report points out that Samsung's role in the supply chain is essentially what is driving up the price of the iPhone 8. The expensive display of the iPhone 8 could mean a higher price for the device.

In a note to clients Tuesday, Bernstein analyst Toni Sacconaghi listed a number of questions to which he expects answers when Apple unveils its 11th-generation iPhone and other products next week. The 10th-anniversary event will be held at Apple's new campus in Cupertino, California at the Steve Jobs Theater.

Apple's iPhone 8, which might actually be called iPhone Edition, is expected to cost $1,000 and that may be partly due to Samsung. Instead, the iPhone 8 will allow users to unlock it using traditional methods like a password. At the same time, Apple chose to ditch the physical home button that contains fingerprint sensors for unlocking the device. What we can be more certain about is that the upcoming iPhone will feature a near bezel-less display on the front. You will be able to watch the iPhone 8 event livestream just like Mac users. I have personally given them the freedom to spend more time collecting news of iPhone 8 rather than spend time in making our own phones better.

The screen is also widely expected to be curved at the edges, like on Samsung's flagship S8 handset, according to previous analyst reports. Then, the device will go on sale on September 22, with the first customers who pre-ordered the model likely to receive it the same day. The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus retained the megapixel count, with the larger sibling sporting two 12MP sensors for its dual rear camera setup.

An 4.7-inch iPhone 7s and 5.5-inch iPhone 7s Plus are also rumored for Apple's September 12th launch event. iPhone 7s rumors might not be as exciting as iPhone 8 rumors but these phones should be more than capable.
