Apple will unveil the next iPhone on September 12th at its new campus

  Apple will unveil the next iPhone on September 12th at its new campus To the surprise of almost no one, Apple has announced it'll be holding its annual iPhone event on Tuesday, September 12th. I t'll be the first event hosted at Apple's new "spaceship" campus in Cupertino, California. Sure, Apple didn't say exactly what to expect, but given that the company has introduced a new iPhone around this timeframe for the last six years, it's a pretty safe bet we'll be seeing new mobile phones. That includes the "iPhone 8," a device that's expected to be radically different from its predecessors.

Manufacturing glitches reportedly will delay shipments of Apple' s new flagship phone by about a month.

Some are even stating that it will be nearly impossible to jailbreak an iPhone running iOS 9. Just hope it ’ s here to stay. Something i know, i won’t buy another IOS device if there is not jailbreak (unless i really need to).

Do you have your heart set on the iPhone 8 -- or whatever it will be called when Apple unveils its new phone lineup on Tuesday? Instant gratification may not be in the forecast, according to a report Thursday in The Wall Street Journal, which says a combination of manufacturing glitches and decisions have pushed back production by about a month.

Although Apple is expected to unveil new versions of its iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus devices next week, all eyes will be on the 10th anniversary version of the company's smartphone, currently referred to as the iPhone 8. (Although there are rumors it could be called either the iPhone X or the iPhone Pro.) That phone will be in short supply when the new lineup goes on sale later this month, primarily because of Apple's decision to use newer OLED screens similar to those found in rival Samsung phones, the Journal says.

That decision, combined with an unsuccessful attempt to include Touch ID in the new display, has put production a month behind schedule, according to the paper. Apple device manufacturer Foxconn is reportedly paying bonuses to employees who can help recruit new hires at company's plant in Zhengzhou, China.

Apple didn't respond to the Journal's or CNET's requests for comment.

How to pick between the iPhone X and iPhone 8 .
Apple introduced three brand new iPhones yesterday. So since there are three new iPhones arriving (almost) at once, you’ve probably been putting some thought into which is the best choice. For the purpose of this article, let’s go into it from the perspective of someone dead set on buying a new iPhone within the next couple months. You’ve ruled out the Pixel 2s and Note 8s of the world and have decided on Apple.
