That's because Apple has scheduled a product launch event for September 12 and the secretive company has historically released the newest iPhone about 10 days after its initial announcement.
This year's iPhone event is in may ways more than just the regular upgrade for the company.
The phone will run iOS 11, Apple's newest software and - if rumors are correct - it will feature wireless charging.
Initially, it was speculated that the smartphone would come with an under-screen fingerprint scanner, but later some reports suggestedthe iPhone 8 may not feature a fingerprint sensor at all. Therefore, it's pretty obvious that Apple wants to unveil the highly anticipated iPhone 8 during September.

Apple's (AAPL) much-anticipated 10th-anniversary edition of the iPhone could finally be available for sale on September 22. We are expecting the iPhone 7s to retain current iPhone 7 level prices but the iPhone 8/iPhone X will be different. Without an official statement from the company, this also means that iPhone 8 may not be included in the new products to be unveiled.
Now, as per as our leaked reports, we believe that iPhone 8 would come with bezel-less or nearly-bezel-less OLED display with wireless charging and face recognition technology. The iPhone 8 will have a limited supply which can make it costlier and don't forget the recently introduced GST.
Apple typically begins selling its new iPhones about a week to 10 days after the launch.
The iPhone 8 has been tipped by the analysts to be priced by the company around $1000 (roughly Rs. 64,000) with higher memory variants expected to touch the price point of $1,400 (roughly Rs. 89,600).
All eyes will be glued to the event on September 12, which will be live streamed online and watched by millions of people.
