While waiting for the Apple keynote event, Benjamin Geskin shared the image of an iPhone 8 mockup. This mockup could really represent the real design of the iPhone 8 and is based on other photos seen last week. Geskin applied a kind of background to the front, to give an idea of how the edge-to-edge display might be when turned on. No Touch ID on the back, vertical camera and the back is made of glass. A leak email suggest the realese will be in Steptember.
Does a leaked email send to high-level Apple employees conclude the release date of the iPhone 8? The e-mail indicates that a release is due in September: “As you know, new product announcements and releases are due in September,” the message says. At the same time, a holiday lock will be mentioned in the mail, which will be valid between 17 September and 4 November, “to ensure customer support during this very important time of the year”.
The contents of the leaked mail can be found in this Twitter post:
AppleCare Advisors & Leaders received an email.
So the September the 17th seems very very likely to be keynote day. pic.twitter.com/O6zlyB4fKx

According to a former Apple analyst, Augmented Reality and self-propelled cars will be two important pillars in Apple’s future, for both, the company needs artificial intelligence. Amazon and Google have quickly gained the initial lead by Siri and implemented the technology aggressively in all products. That’s why Apple wants to move with its own chip for artificial intelligence. A live event is expected for the WWDC developer conference on June 5th.
