(Newser) – Those waiting to upgrade their iPhones can expect to see the new options on Sept. 12. The Wall Street Journal reports that as the date for the next Apple product unveiling. Assuming that's the case—last-minute production glitches could throw off the schedule—customers should be able to order about 10 days afterward. Apple is expected to offer updated versions of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, but most eyes will be on the new iPhone 8, rumored to be an ambitious upgrade to mark the phone's 10th anniversary.

"At this point, it's no secret what the iPhone 8 will bring to the table," notes a post at BGR, ticking off features such as an OLED display, advanced facial recognition, and wireless charging. In addition to the phones, Apple also is expected to unveil an upgraded Apple Watch and Apple TV. (Expect to pony up for the iPhone 8—it's expected to be the most expensive iPhone yet, with some reports suggesting a price of up to $1,400.)
