It is finally the day that Apple fans have been waiting for, the announcement of the iPhone 8! With recent leaks pointing to three new models the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and the elusive iPhone X; Apple is pulling out all the stops to make the iPhone’s 10th Anniversary year one to remember.
It’s hard to believe it was only ten years ago when the original iPhone debuted back in 2007, the once bulky and frustrating device has since wove its way into the pockets of nearly every phone user on the planet. Seeing that this will be the 10th anniversary of the iPhone we’re sure Apple has plenty of surprises up their sleeves.

This event is the first of its kind to happen at Apple’s new campus, Apple Park, at the (beautifully named) Steve Jobs Theater. It’s hard to think of Apple keynotes without Steve Jobs so we’re glad to see his spirit live on in Apple’s keynotes! The theater itself has been generating a lot of hype itself as an artist’s rendering of the theater has received massive fan love online.
The theater, which is said to have been built underground, will feature a 1,000 seat auditorium fitted with leather seats said to have cost over $14,000 a piece. Also in the theater will be off-hand private demonstration rooms where those invited will be able to try out Apple’s latest tech first! Located in the new Apple Park “spaceship” complex, this theater should fit right in!
