With the iPhone 7 already launched and firmly in the hands of new and loyal customers around the world, there are many of us already looking towards the iPhone 8 and wondering about a possible release date.
If you are an iPhone 6/6 Plus user and thinking of upgrading to the iPhone 7, that wouldn’t be a wrong decision. This current generation iPhone is the company’s best with improved software and hardware enhancements that put it at the top of its segment.
But if you are on an iPhone 6S/6S Plus or even the 6, it might be a better idea to hold off until the iPhone 8 comes out.
The entire tech community is expecting significant changes with the tenth anniversary iPhone. An all new design with edge to edge display, wireless charging integration, glass body and many more changes are rumored and expected.
While Apple released a solid handset for 2016, it wasn’t a significant departure than of its predecessors. With a similar design language of the iPhone 6/6 Plus and screen a resolution for the smaller model being the same since the iPhone 4, the reasons for upgrading are not compelling enough for some to justify the cost.

Being that 2017 is the tenth anniversary, we could see a launch date for June 29th. This date was when the first iPhone was announced by the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs and is, therefore, a special date. It wouldn’t be a bad guess to think that a release could take place June 29, 2017.
On the other hand, we can go by the traditional release cycle which is for the first half of September. As you can see by the list above from Wikipedia, September is the most common and the most likely release date for the next iPhone in 2017.
