Apple iPhone 7 / 6SE price and release date expectations


The new Apple iPhone 7 (some say it will be called the iPhone 6SE and 6SE Plus) is already on the horizon, as Apple is on a yearly release cycle, but what is the actual release date for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus?

Apple has not officially confirmed anything yet, but since we already know that the company hosts a big announcement in the beginning of September, we could already make a few good guesses. Additionally, we know that Apple always launches its new iPhones on a Friday, just in time for weekend shoppers to get to the store.

This year, with the iPhone 7 family, the release date is allegedly set for Friday, September 16th. That's when the new phones will be available in retail stores and online. This date is also corroborated by serial leakster @evleaks. 

The actual announcement will likely happen a few days earlier. Apple has the habit of holding those events on a Tuesday or Wednesday in the week before the launch week: this would mean that an official iPhone 7 / 6SE announcement is set to happen on September 6th or 7th.

So, to sum it up: Apple is expected to first hold an official announcement of its new iPhones on September 6th or 7th, and then officially release them on September 16th. All of this is based on rumors and not official information, so do keep in mind that - while very likely - it's still subject to change and not final and official info.

As to the price, the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are expected to have the same pricing as all new iPhones: $650 for the base iPhone 7 / 6SE model and $750 for the base model of the iPhone 7 Plus / 6SE Plus. Apple is also likely to offer versions with more storage for both phones, and each upper tier usually comes with a $100 price premium.

I don't care what you guys think, but I really like the new design. I was getting worried about the headphone jack, but an adapter will be fine for me.

Not trolling or anything but you could just say "I really like the design", because there's almost nothing new in that! Not talking about components!

I'd have to disagree with you there, I think the redesigned antenna bands looks a lot more sleek unlike the previous years. The way they made the shell curve up to the camera hump looks a lot better as well. There's plenty of change for me to distinguish between the 6s and 7/6se/6x

So are you on crack Brady? It's like saying that cars redesign is so much better because it has some painted on racing strips now. Come on, man. You must be on Crack.

That was uncalled for. He did nothing to you to deserve you lashing at him like a cat in heat. You need some pussy.....like now!

Paint some pin stripes on a car, and call it a new redesign.

What new design?

There isn't really anything new about the design. Seems to be the same old 6/6s design being recycled. It's rather boring now.

22. Mxyzptlk unregistered

How do you know what the official design is?

If maherk and I could become cool, you two can also lol. You guys have some classic battles lol.

Me get along with him? Lol, that's a very scary thought.

I'm not too sure about that. He trolls waaaayyyyyyyyyyyy too much. And that's something that practically everyone on this site says. Maherk knows it. Tedkord knows it. And that's just 3 people besides me. Just look at Motorola, Samsung, BlackBerry, Google and other Android related articles. And he says he does it because some Android fans troll Apple related articles. So it's monkey see, monkey do? He's so famous for his trolling that it's become a running a joke here on PA. I've nothing personal against Mxy. This is all just fun and games to me. A guilty pleasure, if you will. But you're right, we do have some classic battles here, lol.

No, you're just trolling, as usual.

48. Mxyzptlk unregistered

And this is coming from the guy who continues to attack anyone who says anything about blackberry and who continues to fight the good fight. How many times have you been banned again? Let's see if he can answer that with a straight face. "I've nothing personal against Mxy. This is all just fun and games to me. A guilty pleasure, if you will. But you're right, we do have some classic battles here, lol." Of course, we both know you have nothing else going for yourself.

And this^^is coming from the guy that trolls everything Samsung, BlackBerry, Motorola and Android related. You attack any and everyone on Apple articles that says anything about Apple that you don't agree with, and you have how many faux accounts now? You're famous for trolling here, and yet you still deny trolling. The irony level in the last part of your asinine statement is on level 10000000000000, considering that you're on here about as much, if not more so, than I am.
