Apple sends out invitation for iPhone 7 launch ceremony
The Cupertino, California, tech giant will unveil its newest smartphone — and maybe more — on Sept. 7 in San Francisco.
Apple emailed the invitations to media, including Mashable, and revealed the venue will be the The Bill Graham Civic Auditorium.
The invite reads only, “See you on the 7th. Please join us for an invitation-only event.”
The presentation will kick off at 10 AM PST. No word on whether or not Apple will live-stream the unveiling, but it’s a pretty good bet that they will.
In addition to the eagerly anticipated new iPhone that everyone believes Apple will unveil, there will definitely be at least one and maybe two variants: a larger 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus, an iPhone 7 SE and maybe even an iPhone 7 Pro (the latter two are pretty unlikely).
More importantly, we’ll finally get an answer for our most critical, burning question: Will the iPhone 7 have an audio jack or coming with dual camera?
If the new device doesn’t have a 3.5 mm port, we will see an adapter to support all the existing audio devices and, probably, new headphones, perhaps the first Apple Beats-branded set.
Along with the iPhone reveal(s), Apple will also walk everyone through iOS 10 highlights and might even surprise us with a handful of previously unannounced mobile platform features that tie directly to the new hardware. This is even more likely if we lose the audio jack, but gain hardware enhancements like wireless charging.
There may also be more hardware besides the iPhone 7. A redesigned Apple Watch is possible, as is new MacBooks.
