iPhone 7 to be announced alongside new Beats products


Next week, on September 7, Apple will host an important event, where it's almost certainly going to unveil two new iPhones: the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. According to French website iGeneration, Apple will also announce a "selection of new Beats by Dre products" on that day. Reportedly, the info comes from an email that was inadvertently sent to iGeneration by someone from Beats' PR team.

As mentioned many times before, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will most likely not feature 3.5mm headset jacks. Thus, all headphones and earphones made for them will have to rely either on Lightning connectors, or on wireless technologies. Back in January, we heard about an alleged set of wireless Beats earbuds, and that's what could be announced on September 7 (plus, maybe, some Lightning-equipped Beats headphones).

Wireless AirPods could also be unveiled alongside the iPhone 7 series, though these are probably not Beats-branded.

Apple bought Beats Electronics in 2014, so the company now functions as a subsidiary to the Cupertino giant, that's why it should be in the spotlight (at least for some time) during the September 7 event. Whatever happens on that day, we'll be here to tell you all about it.
