The iPhone 6 is almost two years old and the iPhone 6s is almost one, so many can’t wait for the iPhone 7 to be released. The iPhone 7 has seen so many rumors in the last few months, but one of the biggest question marks was the released date. The phone was expected to be released this year but an exact date had not been revealed.
The latest rumors are now saying that the phone will be released in two months. A few days ago, Evan Blass revealed that the iPhone 7 would be released on September 12. But he later said that the first date was the retail release date. He added that the phone will go on sale four days later, on Friday, September 16. That is less than two months from now, so not a lot of waiting left if true.
The September release date makes sense as previous iPhones have also been released on the same month. The iPhone 5 was announced on September 12, 2012 and released nine days later. Apple announced the iPhone 5S and 5C on September 10, 2013, the phones were released ten days later. The iPhone 6 and the Plus version were announced on September 9, 2014 and released ten days later. The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus were announced announced and released on the same date but a year later. The rumored iPhone 7 release date would be a few days sooner than the last three iPhones.
Different Name and 2017 Release
There’s also a report from Apfelpage that suggests that the company may not call it iPhone 7. It mentions that Chinese supply chain sources have seen the packaging with iPhone 6SE on it. In the last few months, there have been plenty of images and rumors saying that the phone will be released with a similar design, so a continuation of the iPhone 6 could happen. iPhone 7 is easier to say, but after all the rumors about it being similar to the current iPhones, this can’t be ruled out. Next year’s iPhone is rumored to be the one with the big changes. The all glass screen is reportedly coming for next year’s iPhone but we’ll just have to wait for the company to announce the phone in one or two months.
