Apple has officially confirmed it will host a dedicated event on 12 September at the company's Apple Park campus in Cupertino, California. 

Though Apple did not reveal what products will be announced, the official date does mark the tenth anniversary of the iPhone. With this in mind, it is expected to release three new smartphones, iPhone 7S, iPhone 7S Plus and its anniversary iPhone, which is currently known as the iPhone 8.

However nine days before it hosts the ‘Apple Special Event', another rumour has popped up claiming the high-end iPhone 8 will actually be called iPhone X. The ‘X' stands for the number 10 in Roman numerals and it could give the device a premium presence.

Over the last few weeks countless of leaks have surfaced and the iPhone giant itself accidentally leaked details of the iPhone 8. Unfortunately for Apple, the firmware for its HomePod smart speaker contains code for iPhones which when analysed found that the iPhone 7S series will possibly have a wireless charging feature and the iPhone 8 will have a bezel-less display and 3D face scanning.

Apple is also expected to release its third-generation Apple Watch with LTE connectivity and also an updated Apple TV to feature 4K video support. 

With eight days to go, not long until all is revealed.
