It has already been confirmed that the much-awaited iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be released this September. After all, Apple has made it a tradition to launch the latest iPhone during the ninth month of the year. But the question now is this: exactly when will the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus come out?

Apple has not announced an exact date, but tech experts have their own theories. Some believe that the release date will be on September 9 because it has been the iPhone launch date in the past couple of years: the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were unveiled on September 9, 2014, while the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus were rolled out on September 9, 2015.

But PC Advisor debunks this theory by pointing out that September 9 this year would be on a Friday, which doesn’t match Apple’s tendency to launch new products during Tuesdays (or at least near the middle of the week). Because of this, PC Advisor theorizes that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will happen on September 6 or September 13 (both of which are Tuesdays).

Noted tipster Evan Blass, meanwhile, revealed on Twitter that pre-orders for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will start on September 9 and told his followers that they could “extrapolate the launch event date from there”. As mentioned above, September 9 is a Friday so, if Blass is correct, the launch date of the new smartphones would probably happen on September 6. This could still change, though, considering that the day before that (September 5) is Labor Day and people would still be settling back into their workdays on September 6. If Apple takes this factor into account, it may move the launch date to September 7.

Many Apple fans also think that September 7 could be the launch date for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Blogger and UI designer John Gruber, who runs an Apple news blog, mentioned on Twitter that he believes the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus would be launched on September 7.
