The launch date for the upcoming iPhone 7 series from Apple is fast approaching and leaks and reports keep on popping up online on the subject, including a video that shows an actual iPhone 7 prototype in action. By now, we know so much about the upcoming devices that it would be very hard to be surprised when they do come out.
What we know so far from the rumors is that the iPhone 7 will be very similar in design to the previous iPhone 6 model but with a few tweaks. It will also be powered by a better processor and sport more efficient cameras. Surprisingly, the headphone jack has been removed from the device.
The latest leak on the subject suggests that the ‘7 and 7 Plus ’ might not be appropriate names for the upcoming devices and that they might instead be very different from the customary names that Apple usually gives to its new models.
Many believe that Apple will stay true to its naming habits, while others believe that something might change because there are many rumors regarding the anniversary release of the next gen of iPhones in 2017 that state that the particular models will undergo significant redesigning thus making them a very different type of iPhone. With a very different name or number in the name… and that it’s very possible that the September 2016 models will be connected to them naming-wise, rather than being connected to the 2015 iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
At the same time, some believe that the upcoming September iPhones will not have the number 7 in their name, but will rather be upgraded versions of the last gen iPhones 6 and 6 Plus.
The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are rumored to be scheduled for launch on the 7th of September and to hit the stores on the 16th of September 2016 which is a little less than three weeks from now.
