Apple iPhone 7 expected to launch on September 7
- Terri Swanson
It will mark the fifth year in a row that Apple has launched new products, most famously the iPhone, in early September.
The invitation for the september 7 event at the Bill Graham Auditorium in San Francisco didn't offer major hints.
Apple will also officially launch and announce new features of iOS 10 along with a few new apps for the iPhone. But the invite included an image of swirling, out-of-focus, multicolored lights, which may be a reference to a new dual-lens camera expected in some of the newest iPhones. Apart from this, there have been plenty of reports indicating what's expected for the next smartphone.
We may be labelling it as the iPhone 7 launch, but Apple will definitely drop some other bombs during the press event. Among the numerous rumours emerging over recent months, everything from 16GB minimum storage to home buttons and earphone jacks could be shelved for the new device.
What we don't know yet is the iPhone 7's release date.
As per some latest reports, the iPhone 7 will feature a 4.7-inch 3D touch display, while the iPhone 7 Plus is expected to feature a large 5.5-inch display.
Headphones for the iPhone may instead work with the Lightning port on the bottom of the phone, now used for charging and data transfer, according to a report in The Washington Post. People have reacted, saying that it will not be very user-friendly. The document also reveals that a Lightning to headphone jack adapter will also come along in the box.
Instead of a headphone jack at the bottom we see what appear to be two speaker grills, suggesting that Apple could have a stereo setup in store. And experts believe the just-launched Galaxy Note 7 will take a further bite out of Apple's sales.
Apple fans have a big week ahead.
