Allegedly the networks that will distribute the iPhone 8 have already been alerted to this 12 September keynote day for Apple, which makes sense for their planning. Several sources have apparently leaked that same date.

The same source has said that the iPhone 8, iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus will all go on sale the week after that launch event. That means you could own a new iPhone 8 as soon as 22 September.

Also expected to appear at the Apple keynote is a new Apple Watch and a 4K Apple TV.
