Make sure you pencil in September 12 on your iCal.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple is set to launch three new products on that day, which include the iPhone 7S and the iPhone 8. Per usual, the “S” version will be a minor upgrade to last year’s 7 with a new processor to speed things up. And the news everyone’s been waiting for— the iPhone 8 which will reportedly cost as much as $999.
It’s set to have a sharp OLED screen that takes over nearly the entire screen because the chin that held the home button is now gone. Instead, Apple will now use facial recognition to unlock phones and make payments. While details on the camera haven’t yet leaked, there will be vertical set up on the back — similar to the iPhone 7 — with the entire back covered. That means it’s probably best to keep the device protected in a case — but the good news is the glass exterior is supposedly designed for wireless charging.

As for that third product the Cupertino-based tech giant is planning to unveil? That would be the new iteration of the Apple watch. Details have been scarce on the time piece but it is said to connect directly to mobile networks without needing your phone.
With only two weeks left to go until this epic drop, it’s probably time to grab your lawn chairs (and your coins) and get in line at your nearest Apple store in preparation.
