Time is flying and September is already here, a month that Apple has been using to unveil its new iPhones, with the latest being iPhone 7 and its counterpart iPhone 7 Plus.
Rumors about the iPhone 7 have been all over the internet, but no date had been seen with respect to the launch of this handset. But finally, Apple has broken the deadlock by sending out invitations to several media houses concerning an event that is scheduled for Wednesday, September 7th at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco.
Although Apple has not promised anyone anything to do with the launch of the iPhone 7, these invitations are nothing but an open secret that indeed this flagship will be revealed at the event. There have also been talks about the possibility of the same day seeing through another Apple device – the second-generation Apple Watch – something that is being catalyzed by the circles on Apple’s official event page.
A few weeks ago we reported about a rumored launch and release date for the iPhone 7, which claimed that the flagship will be open for pre-orders as from September 9th. Back then, it was speculated that the phone will be launched on September 7th, just like it has emerged in the latest reports. Furthermore, the latest reports add that the official sales of the iPhone 7 will kick off a week later, starting September 16th.
There has been enough talk of how Apple’s iPhone 7 will be a boring phone. Even though there are no major redesigns when it comes to the design language, the new phone will still pack huge improvements in terms of hardware, performance, cameras as well as software optimizations. For anyone who still rocks an older iPhone 5S or even the 2014 iPhone 6, the upcoming iPhone 7 should be worth looking at once it is here. However, those who are after major overhauls both outside and inside the phone may have to stick around for another year before all these are unleashed with the 2017 iPhone 8.
One major challenge of Tim Cook’s presentation at the upcoming Apple event will be selling an iPhone 7 that comes without the traditional and highly proven 3.5mm headphone port. His task will be to show consumers the good in using Bluetooth headphones or lightning-based headphones made by Apple specifically for the iPhone. Potential buyers of the iPhone 7 could also turn to bulky adaptors that will allow them to use their current 3.5mm headphones on the new iPhone.
Even though Apple is expected to launch the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus on September 7th, all the company has provided is a date. As for the rest, it’s all speculation. Keep following and we’ll update you with the latest news.
