iPhone 7 (or just the new 2016 iPhones) to be released in mid-September


Starting with the iPhone 5 from 2012, Apple has been constantly releasing new iPhones in September (with the exception of the iPhone SE, but that was an atypical launch for the Cupertino company). With that in mind, it's no surprise that pretty much everyone is expecting the upcoming 2016 iPhone models - a 4.7-inch, and a 5.5-inch one - to be available sometime in September, too. And it looks like they will.

According to Evan Blass (aka @evleaks), who is usually very reliable when it comes to these things, the next generation iPhones will be launched in the week starting September 12. Since Apple loves to start selling iPhones on Fridays, we might be looking at a September 16 release date. Obviously, at the moment, we can't really confirm anything.

As you'll notice, Evan Blass isn't using the iPhone 7 name when mentioning the upcoming iPhones. That's because Apple may not want to use the name for this year's iPhones, instead going with something like iPhone 6x (where x could mean almost anything). It's said that the 2016 iPhone models won't be significantly different from the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, as major changes are seemingly saved for the 2017 iPhones, which should come with a completely overhauled design, and important new features.

Until we hear more about this, check out our iPhone 7 rumor review and our iPhone 7 Plus rumor review.

Blass* looking at that camera sensor, I wouldn't be surprised if it was a custom IMX 260 (s7) or a custom IMX 377 (6p/5x)

The usual hating trolls are doing their usual thing, but yes, the iPhone 7/+ is going to be a beast. By no means is it going to be a weak device. My only reason for skipping it, is to get the big anniversary model next year, in 256 gig capacity. Other than that, I'd mos def grab one this year. Enjoy your purchase dude. Let em troll.

No one is trolling accept you. Some don't like it. Some hate it. Some don't like Apple. Some dislike iOs. Some dislike the same design as the ip6. Some are expressing thier thoughts. Some are having fun. That does not mean they are trolling. Everyone has rights to voice their opinions. I'm also looking forward to the iP7. Enjoy your purchase. And you should stop conflicting.

He's not conflicting. The usual suspects are heRe to complain about how much Apple sucks but have probably never used an iPhone.

And the usual suspects flood Samsung Galaxy or BB articles. However, people only seem to whine about one group of suspects.

Not really, i read a ton of articles and the trolls are always called out

30. willard12 unregistered

Those trolls are called out on the content of their comment, not the fact that they dared to to go to a Samsung or BB article to make one. In some cases they will say "I'm not trolling, but..." So I guess that makes it ok. There are dozens of comments on the Note 7 being virtually the same device as the Note 5 and S7 Edge +, and no one should buy it. If all things are equal, then we should see their comments on an article about Apple making a device so identical to the last model that they may not even bother changing the name.

I didn't upload any links troll, nor will I. As I said before, I won't lower myself to satisfy an internet troll. You're an Internet troll, and so is Amroze. You're both jokes to me.

I'm done responding to you, until you fix your grammar. You compose your posts like a 4 year old, and I'll still be mute to you afterwards. You came to this site faking, and quickly showed you true colors. This is my last response to you troll.
