Apple may test the bounds of iPhone love with a new $1000 model at it's big event September, 12, 2017. The unveiling of a dramatically redesigned iPhone will likely be the marquee moment Tuesday when Apple hosts its first product event at its new spaceship-like headquarters in Cupertino, California.
However, there may not be much mystery left about what's unveiled as details of what are expected to be called the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X have been leaked. The phones will sport wireless charging, a better camera, a bigger screen, and a much higher price.
CEO Tim Cook may face criticism if the company prices the highest-end version of the new iPhone at $1,000 or more, as rumored. Yet analysts think people will still be more than happy to shell out. Wall Street is certainly excited. Apple's stock went up 2% Monday morning.
Christmas in September?
The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are likely to be available on Friday, Sept. 22. The company normally makes its smartphones available about 10 days after they're announced, if past history is any indication. The sticking point this time is the availability for the top-of-the-line phone.
In addition to the phones, Apple is expected to introduce a new Apple Watch with LTE, and Apple TV capable of streaming 4K-resolution content. The Apple event starts Tuesday at 12pm (central time.)
