Everything we know about the iPhone 8 so far

After months of speculation, Apple delivered a very modest update of the iPhone lineup back in March. But the new Product Red editions of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, and the updated iPhone SE, are just the appetizer. The main course will be a dramatically redesigned iPhone — coming later this year, according to the rumors.

When will we see the iPhone 8 — or whatever Apple decides to call it? Frankly, the rumors are all over the place. Fall is a reasonable guess, given that Apple has scheduled September introductions for every major iPhone since the iPhone 5 in 2012.

This time, however, things could be different. For the 10th anniversary edition of the iPhone, we’re expecting Apple to come out swinging with some real breakthrough innovations. And, according to the most recent rumors, some of these hot new technologies are going to make it toughfor Apple to deliver the goods by September. More on that below.

Bottom line: the iPhones released in March were small potatoes. A much more grandiose introduction is likely to come later this year. As we edge closer to the launch, we’ll continue to assemble the most important rumors below.
