Apple will announce the iPhone 7 next week at a company event in San Francisco.
The tech giant sent out invites for the September event yesterday, where it historically announces a new iPhone, as well as other product updates and releases.
The event takes places on Wednesday 7th September at 10am PDT – 6pm BST – at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco.
And in its invitation to the event, Apple included the message “See you on the 7th” surrounded by coloured lights – likely referencing the planned iPhone 7 release, as well as rumoured new handset colours.
In terms of other rumours for the new phones, there has been a lot of discussion about whether Apple plans to ditch the headphone port and offer wireless headphones.
This would mean users would have to use headphones that connected through the lightning port or via bluetooth – a move Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak said would “tick off a lot of people” if true.
It is also likely the iPhone 7 will have an upgraded camera, perhaps dual-lens by way of an extended lens opening, that would enable users to take 3D images and SLR-quality photos.
With regards to the handsets, two sizes are expected – a larger iPhone 7 Plus handset, as with its previous smartphone release, and a normal-sized device.
It’s also assumed Apple will announce the Apple Watch 2, with waterproofing & updated GPS capabilities, along with a new MacBook Pro with a new touchscreen bar on the keyboard.
The event starts next Wednesday at 6pm BST, and will stream live on Apple’s site.
