We'd heard plenty of rumors that Apple's iPhone 8 event would be happening on September 12th, and now we finally have confirmation from Apple itself. The theater was specifically created to host Apple events, and what better way to christen the new space than with what is expected to be a big iPhone debut. This time around, the event will be held at the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple's new campus in Cupertino, California. According to a report in Korea Herald, the speed of the facial-recognition system used in the device will be measured in 'millionths of a second'.
Although Apple has revealed nothing about the dual-rear camera setup, its inclusion is highly likely. This has reportedly been revealed by Robert Hwang, CEO of Taiwan-based iPhone assembler Wistron. As per various reports published over the past many weeks, the new iPhone boasts many new features and enhancements, and one of those features is that it is an all screen high-end device. Wistron is said to have recently started assembling iPhone SE units at its plant in Karnataka, India.
As usual, the media invites include a sneak peek at the theme of the event, along with a tagline which this time simply reads "Let's meet at our place".
Some speculate that the new handset will have a glass backing that offers wireless charging.

So what will be new on the iPhone 8?
Other rumours have suggested that delays in the handset's new fingerprint sensor mean its release could be delayed until October at the earliest. This was first seen on the iPhone 4.
