10 Things to Do Before the iPhone 8 Release Date

If you’re planning to buy the iPhone 8 there are a few steps you’ll want to take before the release date.

As we push into the summer, credible rumors are hinting at Apple’s plans. The company’s confirmed several software updates for the fall and we expect to be joined by brand new flagship iPhone.

Apple is reportedly planning to introduce a high-end flagship iPhone 8 alongside its iOS 11, watchOS 4, and macOS High Sierra updates.

The company’s current lineup of iPhones are extremely capable but many consumers are interested in this year’s rumored iPhones. For good reason.

If your current phone is on its last legs or if your device missed the cut for iOS 11, you might be considering an upgrade to an iPhone 8.

If you’re in the hunt for a new phone, you should be proactive. Nothing is confirmed but it looks like the iPhone 8 will arrive soon. Apple’s reportedly planning a September 12th launch event which means an iPhone 8 release date could land a few days later on September 22nd. Apple typically releases new iPhone hardware on Fridays.

To help you get started, we’ve put together some early tips for prospective iPhone 8 buyers. If you take these steps before the iPhone 8 release, you’ll be in good shape once iPhone 8 pre-orders begin.
