Pre-orders for 2016 iPhone models to begin on September 9th?


Recently, tipster Evan Blass (@evleaks) disseminated via tweet that the 2016 Apple iPhone will be unveiled the week of September 12th. But a new tweet from Blass changes all of this. Now, he is saying that Apple will start taking pre-orders for the 2016 iPhone starting on September 9th. According to the tipster, this date is confirmed.

Blass also says that the launch of the 2016 iPhone will take place during the week of September 12th. You might notice that the serial tipster is not referring to the phone as the Apple iPhone 7. That is because there is serious talk that the iPhone 7 will come to market this year under a different name, such as Apple iPhone 6 SE (and Apple iPhone 6 SE Plus). Under its usual naming guidelines, next year's version of the iPhone would normally be named the Apple iPhone 7s. But because 2017 will be the 10th anniversary of the device, there are rumors that Apple is looking to give next year's iPhone a major redesign that would be well beyond the scope of the usual "s" year changes.

So the thinking is that Apple will hold back on new features that might normally have been released this year, opting instead for minor changes in 2016. The major changes to be unveiled next year would be worthy of calling the 2017 model the Apple iPhone 7. Of course, this is all speculation at this point.

The big news for the moment is that according to a source with a darn good track record, pre-orders for the 2016 iPhone models could begin on September 9th with the launch to start during the week of September 12th. Circle your calendars.

I don't care what phone it is or phone manufacturer it is why would anyone one pre-order a phone that you can not see in person or know nothing about. I wait tell I can hold it and play with it (the phone lol ) before I spend $700 +

Um... Because it helps getting it faster especially with demand that iPhones create at launch. And, um.... if you don't like it when you get it, um... you can return it!!!

Really? Wow your reply was desperate! And no, my last two experiences buying an iPhone after it was launched - I had to wait more than a month to buy one. Apple prepares more iPhones every year than the previous year and still run out. I had to wait 2.5 month in my area to get a 5s. And an entire month after release for the 6s (only because I actually reserved one at bestbuy ahead of time. Sissy... When it comes to iPhones you guys don't know much.

If Mxyzptlk is anything like his idol Tim Cook, then most likely he would enjoy it.

Isn't Tim Cook your father?

More like yours, because you worship and praise Apple.

You dumbass, he's best at trolling like you. Everyone on Phonearena knows that. You bait users on here. That's called trolling and starting flamewar.

As are you. Mxy is also a damn genius at getting under the skin of all of you trolls. He does exactly to you, what you try to do to him. You fall for his bait hook line and sinker every time.

What makes it even more hilarious is they haven't even caught onto to that yet. They are supposed to be this coalition of Android users who are smarter than EVERYONE ELSE (their claim), and yet they can't tell when someone is playing them for fools. Lol, Mxy has them grasping at straws trying to counter......and it's really funny :D.

LMAOOOOO! Yes he does. He constantly baits them, and makes them hot as fish grease lol (my moms fav saying). They keep falling for it, too funny. These fools actually can't avoid being Mxytised.

So you say Mxzy is not a troll, and everyone on PA classes him as a troll. I've bookmarked this page. When Meanestgenuis, Scott, Vzuser76 and Digitaljedi and Tedkord reads this post, will definitely say you are giving Mxzy the troll the credit. What Mxzy posts is speculation and theory, not truth. So you actually come here posting to cause baiting on others? No one is falling oh his Bs. People on here provide links and argue with him, so they can shut his Bs up. Unlike you. You do the same. You never back up the post you write. Just blabla.

So Mxy trolls, it is not considered as troll but a clever bait Android users trolls, then it is troll. What a splendid excuse. Clap clap clap

Go back, and find in this article where I said he's not a troll. I didn't say he was or wasn't. I said he's a genius at dong to you troll l, what you try to do to him. You trolls try you hardest to make the site miserable for him, and he wins every time, by pissing you trolls off. Kudos Mxy.

Aswell as Darkkjeddi. Do you remember when you called him baiting and trolling? He mainly focuses on people's post on thier error on English. So instead of focusing on the topic, he calls you out on the mistake you made on your post, so he wins the argument.

They come flocking to my comments like flies on horse poo.
