Nondescript invites have been sent, which means it’s official: the Apple iPhone 7 event will be on September 7th at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. The event begins at noon CDT.
While the announcement date for the new iPhone is known, little information is still available about the device itself. It may (or may not) do away with the 3.5mm headphone jack in favor of Lightning-based EarPods. Other than that, camera updates are expected, and there will potentially be an upgrade to storage sizes available—but nothing has been confirmed on any of these fronts at this time.
There are also rumors that Apple could preview round two of the Apple Watch at the September iPhone 7 event as well.
What we do know is that the September 7th event will give us the roll-out date for iOS 10, which I’ve covered in depth here, in addition to WatchOS 3. The latest edition of the Apple Watch’s operating system is anticipated to bring with it a major overhaul of the wearable’s user interface and core functionality.
For those not personally invited (i.e. most of the world), Apple will be livestreaming the iPhone 7 event from this URL. iOS and/or Mac devices are not required to view this broadcast; PC users with Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge browsers are also free to join in.
