Apple iPhone 7 it is, according to Vodafone
Earlier today we told you that Apple will be holding an event on September 7th in San Francisco. We expect the tech titan to unveil the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus during the festivities. Or will the handsets go by another name? Earlier this year, there was talk that Apple would reserve the iPhone 7 name for the tenth anniversary model that will be released next year. And a recent Geekbench test allegedly showed that the new 4.7-inch iPhone was run through as the Apple iPhone 6SE.

Today, an image from the website of Dutch carrier Vodafone revealed a placeholder for the next iteration of the iPhone. Note that the placeholder did not call the handset the iPhone 6SE, it called the upcoming model the Apple iPhone 7. Not that iPhone naming leaks from Vodafone are always right. Back in May 2013, when most of us were expecting the Apple iPhone 5s to be coming to market, a picture leaked from Vodafone's U.K. till system showing the Apple iPhone 6 name. Of course, the iPhone 6 did eventually launch the following year, but not before the Apple iPhone 5s was released in 2013. On the other hand, a Vodafone employee confirmed the Apple iPhone 6s name in June 2015, well before the handset was unveiled with that title.

Besides today's Vodafone leak, Apple also gave us the best clue of all. The manufacturer is holding its 'by invitation only' event on September 7th, not on September 6SE. In all seriousness, we should point out that the placeholder has since been removed from Vodafone's website, replaced with a message that reads "You are not authorized to view the requested page."

iSheeps will be there in force. Apple don't want any opinions on their products, have you noticed how they block comments on their YouTube channel to keep the sheep under control. They don't want the iSheeps to learn they are sheeps

^ Ignore this guy everyone. His wife left him for a guy using an iPhone, it's scarred him ever since. Now he just sits at his keyboard lecturing strangers on the Internet all day in a "Scarlett WAS hot" T-shirt. Carry on with your evening..........

Samsung YouTube channel has trolls, they don't filter negative or positive comments. This is America it's called freedom of speech.

Yeah what do you expect for a company that's makes most of Apple hardware. There a reason Samsung is the best and Apple wants in.

When you grow up, you'll realize that the world works very different than the playground "politics" you're used to.

So having nothing new... lets discuss the name now. Is it going to be ip6 ss? Ip6 se? Ip7? What if they skip 7 to be cooler then Samsung? Unlikely, huh the? Who cares anyway? I really hope im wrong but this might be the biggest disappointment ever

Naw iSheeps will be out in force to buy just to make a point, because Samsung is having a killer year. The top 3 phones are all made by Samsung the s7, s7 edge and note 7. So they gotta represent and show their support for iOs to make them feel better.

Apple should just drop nunbers and just call it the iPhone. It's doesn't matter what number it is. Because its not the 7th phone anyways. Just call it iPhone and be done with it.

I agree. It's not like people keep track of the numbers anyway.

Recycled information, it is. Of course these companies know when a flagship is close to being officially announced, and when it's very close they have a name. This isn't news worthy.

Nobody cares about the name, this is just another click bait article from PA, to promote fan wars so idiots like bobby84 among others, can just come and bash on Apple to get green thumps.
