Could this be the iPhone 7 release date?


While it's not quite clear if Apple's next smartphones will use the iPhone 7 name or not, there's one thing that everyone is certain of: the Cupertino company will officially announce its upcoming handsets (most likely including a 4.7-inch model and a 5.5-inch one) in September. Rumors have it that Apple will host an iPhone event on, or around September 7, so it should start selling the new devices not long after that.

Last month, we heard that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus (or whatever they end up being called) could be released on September 16. Today, 9to5Mac revealed an AT&T retail schedule which suggests that the handsets may actually be launched later in September. The leaked schedule details AT&T's next two "merchandising reset hours", which should take place on September 9 and September 23. It's likely that AT&T is planning to start accepting pre-orders for the new iPhones on September 9, and release them on September 23 - two weeks later. If that happens, we assume that everyone else, including Apple itself, will launch the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus on September 23 as well.

We definitely must mention that, according to 9to5Mac, these AT&T merchandising reset hours may not be related to the new iPhones. While the website notes that a "major phone" is expected to be released by AT&T on September 23, this could be a different device (maybe the LG V20). Still, September 23 will be a Friday, and Apple has made it somewhat of a tradition to launch new iPhones on Fridays. Then again, September 16 is a Friday, too, so we'll just have to wait and see what happens.

P.S.: The image embedded above is taken from a video that allegedly shows an exact copy of the iPhone 7.

Tell the world why the HELL were you compelled to post this? Do you have a mental retardation of some sort? And on top of that who the hell upvoted something this stupid? I digress, I bet the mental clinic have Internet access?

Low hanging fruit, I guess. I thought piling on Apple was so 2013, but I'm one of those wishy-washy "to each his own device" types. We're at war; pick a side!

And yet here you all are, trying to fight back against idiocy. If you can't ignore him, then he has won and you have now prompted him to do it again.

I'm just curious why you FF and others do this? Why post mindless crap. I come to read the article, maybe comment on what's going on - but you and others are just flooding these forums with pure garbage. It changes your mood from interested to irritated in 2 seconds!!! Not even trying to sound logical - just garbage!!!! I bet you FF even upvoted him, huh?

You come to articles, you read the comments, and then go on endless tirades defending Apple usually. Don't pretend like you're above that crap as you have proven here as well. You and Dark and a bunch of others just post mindless drivel usually like "GO TIM COOK, WE LOVE YOU" or some BS. I usually leave that be and move on. The trolls usually don't even get one reply a week from me but you usually get baited every time. Also, I comment more time on the actual article than you probably ever have. You usually reply to trolls mostly and get into flame wars with them, check your comment history for verification.

FF I tried having a decent debate with you. I don't defend Apple I explain why I like iOS and iPhones - you and others seem not to understand that it is a better option for millions. Yes better than android by many standards. And I hate Tim Cook - I have voiced that many times, so do many othe Apple users. We all hate the design of the 6/6s. But you keep the derigatory crap. Did you upvoted the above article? Don't answer - just think about yourself for a second. If you upvoted it, you are a troll and deserve to be grouped with them. Based on your comments everywhere - I can easily assume you upvoted that garbage - it makes you feel good to read that about iOS users doesn't it? Yes it does!!!

Alright.... I'm just gonna come out and say it. Several f this guy's upvoters are retard hipster babies xD. I mean why else would you upvote something so drab and spiteful? BTW..... Statistics have shown that iOS users not only have higher IQs than their Android counterparts, they also make more money and live longer too.

You do know ow that having a high IQ doesn't mean you are smarter. It just means you could certainly be good at something, but not everything. Many iPhone users don't even know ow how to backup their phone, as simple as it is, yet those people are suppose to have high IQ's. Android users are smarter because they use a phone with advanced features, that Apple certainly has proven they think most of their customers are too stupid to handle. Everything one of you idiots say that, it makes you sound ignorant. Because if Apple users were so smart, then Apple wouldn't need to make the phone so simple a 3 year old can use it. That question is up for debate. But all you. An do is maybe read this: http://som.yale.edu/news/news/why-high-iq-doesnt-mean-youre-smart Taking an IQ means nothing. All.ot means is some people can solve a unique problem with a small amount of data. Yet those same people can't even operate something as simple as a microwave. There are people who are doctors that don't have high IQ'S. Car mechanics don't have high IQ'S, yet they can take a car totally aeration and put it together, while some of your claimed high IQ people, can't even change a spare tire. Dude you are the ultimate example of a person with an IQ of 0. Yes I am. Ot saying you are dumb. But what you said certain was. You'd have to be an idiot to even make such a subjective statement. Lol Thanks for the laugh.

Those high IQ people you mentioned are brainwashed by apple and believe iphone is the best smartphone in the world. I wonder how smart are they.

You realize one's intelligence has absolutely 0 to do with the ability to be coerced right? Some of you people here know more about phones than actual psychology...... how tragic.

iPhone is not he best phone In the world!!!! No device is!!!! iPhone IS the best phone for millions of individuals, including me (someone that actually knows competition very well).

As I have no interest in purchasing this device I could care less when it is released into the wild. They can wait all the way to October first for the actual deployment. I'm sticking with the 6s.
