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.

yes I cared, it's a great job done by Apple, on what part did I say that I didn't care? Also, I don't claim to be completely unbiased, no one is.

I am completely unbiased. lol I hate and like all phones equally, no matter who makes them. They all have the same pros and cons that vary by manufacturer. Yes I agree, Apple is doing a good job. But they need to do better. Good isn't good enough anymore. Many OEM's are working tirelessly to make their products better, while Apple gets away with just making them good. I want them to do better too.

So do I. They should focus on specs and features, like Samsung. They should stop this BS patents aggravating.

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

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.
