The public has been waiting the highly anticipated release date of the iPhone 7 which is rumored to have a number of changes this time around.
Now we know what date we will get to find out all of these rumored changes. The Apple event is taking place at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco on Wednesday, September 7, at 10am local time, (6pm BST).
Apple is notorious for giving little hidden messages in its invitations, but this one doesnâ€™t seem to give much away.
See invitation below:
It carries the tagline â€œSee you on the 7thâ€Â which seems to only allude to the new phoneâ€™s name but not much more.
Another theory is that the colored bubbles play into the rumor that Apple will be releasing more handsets with a wider range of colors available. Â The bubbles could also be water droplets which would lend itself to the rumor of the phone being waterproof.
I mean, letâ€™s be honest. Â It could also mean the phone is going to be round at this point. Theyâ€™re all ONLY GUESSES!
The most persistent rumor is that Apple plans on releasing a phone that would be rid of headphone sockets. Â This might play into the waterproof theory, but either way users do not seem to be excited about something else to charge.
Mirror.co.uk reported the following:
Apple has improved the water-resistance of its devices in recent years, but it yet to release a fully waterproof phone.
Earlier rumours suggested that the new handset willÂ no longer come in a 16GB modelÂ â€“ but that the top-of-the-range iPhone will now offer 256GB of storage.
Itâ€™s also expected toÂ feature fast-charging technologyÂ â€“ meaning your phone will get several hours of battery life fro just a few minutes of charging.
Finally, there have been several leaked picturesÂ purporting to show a blue iPhone 7, suggesting Apple may be considering different colour options.
More rumors include:
- camera upgrade (this may only apply to the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus, not the 4.7-inch iPhone 7.)
- removing the â€œHomeâ€ button.
- keeping â€œHomeâ€ button and adding new features to it.
- get rid of plastic lines that run across back of the iPhone.
