Apple usually holds its iPhone launch event in September every year and some fresh leaks hint that the tradition is all set to continue. The new iPhone 7 may be launched in the third week of September, i.e., in the week of September 12.
“iPhone 2016 release: week of September 12th,” Evan Blass, known for its accurate iPhone leaks, tweeted.
Last year, Apple launched the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus on September 9, however it came to India a month later. And now it is expected that the company will follow the same pattern this year for the iPhone 7 as well.
The iPhone 7 is expected to launch in three variants - iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7 Pro version. However some new reports suggest that Apple may just stick to two variants this year. It is also expected that the company will come with the new base storage variant - 32GB. The probable storage offerings are going to be 32GB, 128GB, and a possible new 256GB variant.
Apple may also come with a new dual camera setup in its large iPhone 7 Plus variant and may get a bump to 3GB RAM.
It is also expected that the new iPhone will sport slightly bigger batteries, and the new Apple A10 processor for faster performance. The Home Button is expected to perform multiple functions and it is also rumoured that it will not come with a 3.5mm audio jack and will also be at least 1mm slimmer than its predecessor.
