iPhone 7 will be launched on September 7
Apple has sent out media invitations for a special event in San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium on Wednesday, September 7. Apple is widely expected to unveil the next generation iPhone and Apple Watch models at the event.
There have been rumours about the new iPhone being called iPhone 6SE and not iPhone 7.
Apart from the confusion surrounding the name, most other rumours are rather plausible. The next iPhone is expected to feature camera improvements in both models, with the smaller 4.7-inch offering tipped to get optical image stabilization (OIS), and the larger 5.5-inch offering tipped to sport a dual camera setup. The Cupertino giant is expected to use a new Apple A10 SoC to power both devices, with the company also rumoured to bump up the memory alongside to 3GB of RAM.
Apple is also anticipated to bump up the base storage variant from 16GB to 32GB. Alongside the upgraded base storage rumour, the company is expected to boost the storage capacity of the top-end variant from128GB to 256GB. The 64GB variant is also anticipated to be replaced by the 128GB variant - thus, we can expect Apple to release its next-generation iPhone models in 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage variants.
Apple is also rumoured to boost the display resolution of its next iPhone models. The current iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s plus sport resolutions of 750x1334 pixels and 1080x1920 pixels currently, while the corresponding iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are expected to sport resolutions of 1080x1920 pixels and 1440x2560 pixels respectively. Apple is also tipped to include a Space Black Variant this time around, though a Space blue variant was also rumoured alongside the removal of the Space Grey colour option.
Finally, Apple is expected to make the next iPhone available in its stores in the US from September, with carrier availability tipped for September 23.
