Apple will launch its new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus at a special event on September 7th. That’s according to Bloomberg, which revealed the plans in a report about Apple’s forthcoming MacBook range.
The financial news outlet says that the latter will not be revealed alongside the updated iPhone line-up, ‘at an event currently scheduled for September 7th’.
Until now, the only evidence pointing towards a launch date for the iPhone 7 came from the reliable @evleaks Twitter feed, which claimed Apple was readying itself to start preorders on Friday September 9th.
If that date is correct, a launch event two days prior would fit with Apple’s previous strategy of revealing its new products a couple of days before making them available. The iPhone 7 is expected to go on general sale the following week.
Apple’s new iPhone range is due to offer only minimal changes compared with last year’s models.
While the phones will feature new cameras and tweaks to the antenna set-up, the design is set to be identical. An overhaul of the bestselling product is due in 2017.
