New video shows Apple’s launch base in lead up to iPhone 8 reveal

We just got our closest look yet at Apple’s new Steve Jobs Theater, and people are almost as excited about Apple Park as they are about the iPhone event itself.

The latest drone preview gives us never-before-seen views of the campus and the 120,000-square-foot theatre where the iPhone 8 unveiling will take place. All the seats are below ground, so we won’t get a proper look at the completed auditorium until the big launch.

These construction images at least give us a decent idea of what to expect of the underground theatre where we’ll first meet the Cupertino company’s 10th anniversary handset. Originally dreamed up by Steve Jobs, the brand new Apple Park covers a whopping 175 acres and will home 12,000 employees. It features an R&D facility, an on-site Apple store (naturally), two miles of running paths, and will run entirely on renewable energy. The land alone cost $160 million.

The theatre itself seats 1,000 people and sits on a hill that overlooks the main Apple Park campus, and these insider snaps (via MacMagazine) provide an early peek at the venue for the tech titan’s future product launches.

Hope it’s finished in time!
