UPDATE: August 10, 11:00am EST – Bloomberg News is also now reporting that, according to "people familiar with the matter," the Apple iPhone 7 will be announced on September 7.
Everyone knows that Apple's annual update schedule tends to fall around September, but now we may have the exact iPhone 7 release date.
Evan Blass, a tech reporter at VentureBeast, has “confirmed” on Twitter that pre-orders for the iPhone 7 will begin on September 9, with a subsequent release date of September 16. This means we should expect Apple to schedule the phone’s official announcement for September 7.
Exact details surrounding the device remain sketchy, but we do know that it will probably have a dual camera and that it won't feature a standard headphone jack. More interestingly, however, is the speculation that iPhone 7 won't actually be called the iPhone 7 – Forbes has reported that it could be called the "iPhone 6SE."
This would make a lot of sense as we know that Apple has huge plans for the 10th anniversary of the original iPhone in 2017, where talk of a complete redesign has already leaked. Such a handset was never likely to be called the iPhone 7S. No matter what this year's release is called, it's time for Apple fans to start saving.
Meanwhile, this new video offers a side-by-side comparison of the iPhone 7 with the iPhone 6s.
