September 12th, 2017 it is! Apple has confirmed that the much awaited iPhone 8 will be launched the same day that Steve Jobs Theater will be opened. The theater is taunted to be the main day’s focus as people await the unique design not seen anywhere else in the world.
The Steve Job’s theater
The entrance to the theater is located under a silver disc with supporting glass panels that make it appear to float approximately 20 feet over the neighboring clearing. The auditorium takes 4 underground stories, and the theater can hold 1000 people.
The theater features 2 custom designed rotating elevators that turn as one ascends or descends. The lift ensures that all visitors enter and leave via the same door. While double doors are more sophisticated, Apple preferred the simpler one-door model.
After finishing the iPhone 8 show, an inside wall that obscures an empty space (below the floating saucer) will retract to show the product demonstration room on Apple September 2017.
The Apple Theater is designed to be the ultimate legacy of the Apple’s Founder, Steve Jobs. Now that it is slated to open a decade after the first iPhone was released, it is seen as an opener to a new era. The next focus by Apple will be AR (augmented reality) apps that are expected to bring fore the next generation smartphones, glasses, and other smart devices.The theater will be the venue for all other apple events after the iPhone event 2017.
The iPhone 8 launch
Even before the annual iPhone event 2017, the details of the iPhone 8 have already hit the market, and it is considered to be the most advanced smartphone in the globe. It is loaded with unique features including edge-to-edge display, a vertical rear camera and runs on the latest iOS 11. Together with a nearly Bezel-free display, the smartphone comes with a glass body and will be the most revamped iPhone today.
Apple also did away with the Touch ID fingerprint scanner for the highly advanced facial recognition system. They also did away with the Home Button to yield more space without increasing the screen size. A series of gestures will be used instead of the home button.The iPhone 8 display is made from a highly flexible plastic OLED. This means that it is thinner, uses less power, and delivers better display with top notch contrast and true life colors.
In what appears to be a departure from the aluminum bodies used in iPhone 5, 6 and 7, the iPhone 8 to be launched on the Apple event September 2017 will have a glass body. This is somehow similar to the iPhone 4 design, but it is built around a highly polished stainless frame. Other unique features of iPhone 8 include;
- Improved water resistant system
- Feature a 10-nanometer A11 chip
- Advance 3D sensing capabilities on the front camera
The iPhone 8 will not be the sole device on the show. The apple product launch event is also likely to include other products including the 3rd generation Apple Watch that feature an LTE chip. People are also expecting to get the 4K Apple TV and HomePod.
The opening of Steve Job’s Theater is seen as the ultimate way to usher in new technology, devices, and manner of doing things. It is considered the ultimate way to navigate from the question; What Would Steve Do?
