Apple’s (AAPL) iPhone 7 Release Date Is Here

The long awaited release date for Apple’s highly anticipated iPhone 7 is finally here.

Suggested reports indicate that the next generation iPhone, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be released on September 16th. This date comes thanks to the ever reliable Evan Blass (AKA @evleaks, who took to Twitter to inform his followers about the release of the iPhones.

Though the date is not official, Evan has been usually right on such predictions.

Blass says that Apple’s new iPhones will get a retail release on September 16, which is a Friday.

The phone could be announced on Monday Sept. 12 if this is true.

So what kind of new things can we expect from Apple’s new phones?

The camera is expected to have the inclusion of a dual-lens camera on the Plus model, as well as a heavily updated set of features for the standard iPhone 7’s camera unit, including OIS and a higher MP sensor.

There will not be a 3.5mm headphone jack, but instead Apple is switching to its existing Lightning port connector. This is the area that handles data and charging.

According to U Switch, “It now appears certain that Apple will do away with the standard 3.5mm headphone port and instead force users to attach headphones via the iPhone 7’s Lightning slot. The change is being made to allow for a second speaker and could make the iPhone 7 slightly slimmer than its predecessors, while offering space for a larger battery.”

One of the biggest perks is that Apple may finally start with 32GB as its entry-level model instead of 16GB.

Only a few weeks to go until we get to see them and put all rumors to rest.
