Apple hasÃ‚Â today sent out invites for an Invite-Only event on Wednesday, September 7, where the company will unveil the next iPhone. The invite doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t give any hints this year, simply stating Ã¢â‚¬Å“See you on the 7th.Ã¢â‚¬Â
The event will be held at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco and kicks off at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET, and is widely expected to include the debut of iPhone 7 (unless we have a name change) and possibly Apple Watch 2.
Many leaks show that the next iPhone will feature more or less the same design as the iPhone 6s. The antenna lines at the back will be streamlined and the camera will be a bit more prominent. And despite the on and off rumours, it looks like the audio port is going away.
For the Plus iPhone model, Apple could introduce a dual-lens camera system. Two cameras could let iPhone users shoot better photos in low-light conditions Ã¢â‚¬â€ it could also improve HDR performance and color fidelity. Or it would let you use an optical zoom with two different angles.
Apple is also rumored to be working on its own wireless earbuds with completely separate left and right earpieces, which could be dubbed “AirPods.”
Preorders for the “iPhone 7” are expected to start a few days after the keynote, on September 9, with the handsets becoming available one or two weeks after that date, launching before the end of September.
