Expect More Than Just iPhones
The iPhone 8 won't be the only new Apple product that arrives this fall.
On top of new iPhones and new software updates for the iPhone/iPad/iPod touch (iOS 11), Macs (macOS High Sierra), Apple TV (tvOS 11), and Apple Watch (watchOS 4), Apple should have some other exciting hardware announcements on hand.
Apple's new iMac Pro and HomePod (Siri Speaker) hardware won't launch until December so it's unclear if they'll emerge on stage alongside the iPhone 8. That said, it looks like Apple could use the big stage to debut a brand new LTE-powered Apple Watch 3.
The timing makes sense. The Apple Watch 2 made its debut alongside the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus last September.
Apple Watch 2 was released on September 16th, the same day as the two iPhones.
