Apple iPhone 8: everything we know so far

UPDATE 11/09: Massive iPhone X, iPhone 8 & iPhone 8 Plus data leak

Every iPhone launch is a big deal, but the iPhone X looks like being the most significant new phone release for years.

That's because this year marks the tenth anniversary of the first iPhone's launch in 2007, and all the signs are that Apple is going to massively overhaul its flagship device and we'll be seeing the results very soon indeed. We’re expecting the announcement of a premium iPhone X, alongside more minor upgrades in the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.

That naming scheme doesn't follow Apple's usual method of slapping an 'S' on the end and calling it a day, which clearly means big things are on the way. Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria? Nah, probably not - but we're betting you're still excited.

So what's in store? We've rounded up everything we know so far about the new phone, from its release date to its new features and its likely price. You'll find a mixture of hard news and entirely unsubstantiated rumours - but don't worry, because we'll guide you through every one of them and tell you what you should believe. On with the show...
