It’s looking increasingly likely that Apple’s next big iPhone unveiling will happen on September 12.

Following a rumor last week that circled the second Tuesday of September as the date for the big iPhone 8 keynote, two more reports from reliable sources have practically confirmed that the next Apple smartphone will be revealed in just two weeks.

Both TechCrunch and The Wall Street Journal claim to have inside info on the as-yet-unannounced Apple September 12 keynote. Apple is expected to unveil three new iPhones — the iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus and the iPhone 8 (or maybe “iPhone Pro”).

“As with any of Apple’s events, things could change at the last minute, but it looks like September 12 is nearly locked in,” reports TechCrunch. One factor that could delay the date is whether the new Steve Jobs Theater at Apple Park will be ready in time.

Along with the new iPhones, Apple will supposedly reveal a new Apple TV with support for 4K video and HDR formats. The pocket-killing Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE will also likely make an appearance.

Invites for the iPhone 8 keynote could go out as early as this week.

Apple fans have been anticipating the launch of the 10th anniversary iPhone for more than a year. The device reportedly will pack huge new upgrades such as a bezel-free display, inductive charging, 3D sensors, facial recognition, an A11 processor and much more.
