The 8 biggest questions we still have about Apple’s new iPhones
The big day is almost here. In less than 24 hours, Apple will finally kick off its Sept. 12 eventat the Steve Jobs Theater at its new “spaceship” campus California. The occasion will be used as a launching pad for the company’s newest hardware, including a new batch of phones unofficially referred to as the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X.
Apple typically uses its annual fall event to show off the company’s new iPhone, but this year is a little different. The usually secretive company couldn’t contain all the leaks about the forthcoming iPhone this time around, giving us deep insights into what will likely be shown at the event.
First, in August, there was a massive leak when an Apple employee appeared to inadvertently shared a firmware update on a public server that revealed details about the phone’s design and operation. Then, this weekend and just days before the event, there was another major software leak revealing practically everything about the unreleased iPhone.
Now, we’re pretty sure we know all the important details about the unreleased iPhones. We think we know the names (reportedly iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X), that at least one of them will include something called “Face ID” to replace the fingerprint sensor, and that there will be animated emoji to mess around with.
But even with this tantalizing info, there’s still so much we don’t know. There are plenty of unanswered questions we hope Apple answers at its big event. Here are the biggest questions we still have about the upcoming iPhones
