Apple iPhone 8 – Forecast of Release Date and Price Tag

Apple is going to celebrate 10th anniversary of their iPhone series while launching the most advanced and the most spectacular one in the line-up – Apple iPhone 8.

The company released the first iPhone back in 2007 and re-shaped the landscape of mobile phones forever. This time after 10 years Apple is planning a major redesign to the iPhone and called it iPhone 8.

It is not too far from now when you’ll have your hands on your own iPhone 8. We have summarized some speculations about release date and price tags keeping in view the past trends of Apple.

iPhone 8 Design

The biggest change as seen in rumors will be the massive ramping-up of screen-to-body ratio. The replacement of Home button with touch ID is expected and we will see a curved screen in iPhone 8.

In August 2016, a report from Bloomberg written by long-time Apple leaker Mark Gurman reads: “Apple is already at work on a major redesign of the iPhone for 2017 that focuses more heavily on the display by removing the Home button.”

Then in September 2016, the New York Times wrote: “Next year’s iPhone will have a full-screen face with the virtual button built directly into the screen.”

iPhone 8 Release Date in Pakistan

Although the official release date of iPhone 8 is not yet confirmed by the company but Apple is fairly predictable. We can make a guess based on launch dates of previous iPhones.

Model Reveal Date Release Date
iPhone 5 Wednesday, September 12 Friday, September 21
iPhone 5S Tuesday, September 10 Friday, September 20
iPhone 6 Tuesday, September 9 Friday, September 19
iPhone 6S Wednesday, September 9 Saturday, September 19
iPhone 7 Wednesday, September 7 Friday, September 16

Based on careful study of the above table, we can expect next iPhone reveal date to be Tuesday, September 12 while release date will be either Friday, Sept 22 or Saturday, Sept 23.

Be noted that the dates mentioned here are related to international release of iPhone 8, what about Pakistan? We have seen the official release of previous iPhones in Pakistan by two-month delay; so you’ll have to wait until November to get hands on latest iPhone 8 or iPhone 8+ in Pakistan.
