Steve Jobs memorably denounced a strange iPhone some-more than a decade ago. So it’s suitable that a 10th anniversary book of a iPhone be hold during a museum named in his honor.
Apple, confirming a rumored date and plcae of Sept. 12 during a new Apple Park campus.
It outlines a initial time an eventuality will be hold during a campus and during a 1,000-person-capacity Steve Jobs Theater, a wise venue deliberation a hype and expectations around a subsequent set of iPhones. The iPhones, after all, haven’t seen many earthy changes over a final 3 years, and a rumored iPhone 8 represents a potentially outrageous jump over a predecessors.
The eventuality binds special definition for me. Beyond a initial revisit to a new campus, this will be my initial time during an Apple eventuality ever. Despite covering a mobile universe for some-more than a decade, I’ve never attended Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference, or any of a product launches. Samsung, Microsoft, Nokia and Google, sure. But no Apple. Based out of New York, I’ve always deferred to colleagues in San Francisco and watched a movement reveal from a comfort of my office. It’s like being a long-time Laker fan and attending Staples Center for a initial time.
Apple holding a eventuality during a new “spaceship” campus is an combined bonus. The building skeleton advise a venue that’s identical to a flagship Fifth Avenue Apple Store in New York, with a grand turn glass-encased structure that serves as a opening to a subterraneous theater. You take a set of winding stairs down to a round vaunt space, and afterwards we go even deeper to get to a front of a auditorium seats (which I’m formulation to nab).
Those seats will substantially be tough to get than final year, when Apple hold a iPhone launch eventuality during a Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, that binds adult to 8,500 people.
I’m already perplexing to prognosticate what a auditorium will demeanour like. I’m guessing it will take a cues from Apple Stores, that means lots of potion and metal. I’m awaiting to see a sleekly designed interior. Perhaps, as a curtsy to Jony Ive, we’ll see splashes of aluminium (I’m conference it in a British accent).
I’ve been warned about a lines, disharmony of a demo bedrooms and a conflict for seats and space. we know there’s a ton of vigour to make certain we get all a latest sum out to a readers as fast as possible. But truthfully, I’m vehement to be going, removing first-hand knowledge of a whirlwind of idiocy that is an Apple event.
Will we still feel that approach once I’m in a thick of it? Ask me on Sept. 13.

This will be a initial eventuality hold during a new Steve Jobs Theater during Apple Park.
Does a Mac still matter? Apple execs explain because a MacBook Pro was over 4 years in a making, and because we should care.
