Apple iPhone Event 2017: The Rumor Mill

Today Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, as well as an ultra model being dubbed the iPhone X. At something like $1,200 the iPhone X is expected to have features unavailable on the more modest, but still really fucking expensive, iPhone 8. These features are expected to include edge-to-edge bevel-less display, and no home button. In place of the home button will be something like the Touch Bar found on MacBook Pro. The already large iPhone 7 is expected to grow even more in the iPhone 8 and iPhone X according to peripheral and case manufacturers.

Or at least those are the rumors. There are a hell of a lot of those this year!

We'll know for sure in about an hour at 10 A.M. California time. This gives us some time to make up our own rumors because that's what Apple coverage is all about! Comment here with your own outlandish schemes and see if you can outdo Apple at their own game.

Didn't you hear? iOS 11 is going to be subscription based on special features available only on the iPhone 8 which itself will only be available as a modest lease option.

I kvetch a lot, I know... but honestly: removing the audio jack was the beginning of the end of being mainly iOS-based in my musicmaking.

Have already started shopping for audio interfaces and a PC laptop and will use my iPhone 7+ as long as its supported. After that... we'll see. Which kind of sucks given how much money I've sunk into the platform tbh. Ah well... Caveat Emptor.

Peter Kirn's "Apple’s relationship with pro music needs some mending" article from last year sums it up well.
