Hours from unveiling, Apple iPhone 7 boxes leak; September 16th launch date 'confirmed'

Also 'confirmed' is the September 16th release date of the phone, according to sources apparently close to European carrier Three.com in Italy. That also happens to be the launch date of the phone that serial tipster Evan Blass said he was confident about.
In a few hours, all of the rumors will be over as the 2016 iPhone units are officially introduced by Apple. But as soon as the event ends, it will be open season on speculation about the 2017 models. And since next year will be the tenth anniversary of the iPhone, you can expect to see plenty of rumors involving wholesale changes to the phone.
One of the first rumors about the iPhone 7 circulated last November, just two months after the launch of the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus. That rumor said that the iPhone 7 would launch without the 3.5mm earphone jack in order to make the device waterproof. And sure enough, those are two features that we expect to hear about when the latest iPhone units meet the public for the first time, in San Francisco. Removing the earphone jack means eliminating one way that water could make its way inside the phone.
We just might see more last minute rumors about the new iPhone handsets before the unveiling. Make sure to check in often.

Same delayed tech. 3 GB ram? Welcome to 2013, iPhone users.

Here is another Android stupid guy. iPhone is always the faster phone in the market. But oh no, it does not have the most important new feature: Explosion!!!

Well yea it would be a faster phone, because software feature wise, it has been lacking since day one. Apple has always been late to the game adding features to enhance the overall experience of the phone. They would not want to take the risk of hurting the "it just works" mentality. Also people have been arguing for years that ios runs perfectly on less ram, so there isn't any need for more. However Apple upped the ram to 2 gigs last year, and 3 gigs for the 7 plus (rumored) this year. Why? Because they are trying to catch up to what other phones can do, which requires more ram for it to work smoothly. Not putting down Apple by any means here. I think their devices are perfect for certain people. But for someone like myself, I like that my phone can do a lot more. I have a Note 7 and yes I get it, South Korea has had 30ish phones that exploded. My phone is getting replaced at no cost to me. But I still would use this phone over lets say a 6S. That is just my personal preference. Who knows maybe in a couple hours, Apple will actually impress me enough to give them a second thought.

The 2 GB RAM of iphone 6s performs better than yhe 6 gb one plus 3 in terms of ram management.

That happens in android as well. However, touchwiz takes certain time to learn user habits to decide which app to remain open. Don't just go after youtube videos where the tested devices are not being used enough to learn user habits.

Bruh, the year old 6s/plus is the fastest phones out right now and they are a year old. Android manufacturers love people like you. They just throw numbers on a spec sheet and you come running!

3 GB of RAM is overkill for any smartphone or it.

The point of more RAM is so that all the features plus apps people use, won't cause the phone to bog down and get slow. It is as simple as that. We are dealing with phones that for the most part have 2K screens, can take and process massive RAW photos, can have multiple apps all running at the same time. I get it though, not everyone is a power user. But it is nice that companies thought of what they want their phones to be able to do, and for the most part deliver on those ideas. Now if you want to see a spec sheet of a hypothetical phone that we all can agree is truly overkill, then Google those Turing phones.
