Apple will officially unveil the 2016 iPhone range on September 7th, after confirming the date on press invites for a launch event in San Francisco.
The invitation itself does not give any clues as to what we can expect, except to say ‘See you on the 7th’.
However, past form, coupled with months of rumours, suggests that Apple will almost certainly unveil a new iPhone, likely dubbed the iPhone 7 or iPhone 6SE.
In news to disappoint the iFaithful, this year's model isn't a radical overhaul. And, barring a few cosmetic changes, will look almost identical to the iPhone 6s.
Perhaps the most noteworthy and controversial change is that the phone will ditch the traditional 3.5mm headphone slot. Instead, headphones will either connect using wireless technology or via the device’s Lightning charging port.
The camera on the smaller iPhone 7 is set to come with a bigger lens, while the larger iPhone 7 Plus is believed to have a new–look dual lens camera set-up.
Other changes are set to focus on the iPhone’s new A10 chipset and the iOS 10 software, which Apple first revealed at its Worldwide Developers Conference back in June.
This year's iPhone launch event will start at 6pm UK time and will be live streamed on the company’s website.
Apple is also expected to tout a new–look Apple Watch and a series of changes to its MacBook range.
