Rumor: 'iPhone 7' to Arrive Sept. 16

...

Mark your calendars and get the camping gear ready, Apple fans: the next iPhone is slated to arrive on Sept. 16.

Apple has not made any official announcements, but the rumored release date comes from well-known and reliable leaker Evan Blass, who commonly shares inside information about upcoming smartphones on his Twitter account. If Blass is right, we could have details about the next iPhone, commonly referred to as the iPhone 7, even sooner.

Blass said the phone will hit store shelves on Sept. 16, suggesting that Apple's launch event will occur in the week or two beforehand. Last year, Apple held its fall iPhone event on Sept. 9 and released the phones Sept. 25.

As for what to expect from Apple's big fall iPhone announcement, don't get your hopes up for any major changes. The Wall Street Journal, citing unnamed people "familiar with the matter," recently reported that Apple is planning "only subtle changes" for the models coming this fall. They will likely be thinner, but will keep the same 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screen sizes used for the past two years.

Other rumors tip a larger rear camera (and a larger CMOS sensor for said camera) which would allow for higher-quality photos shot in crappier lighting conditions.

And while the Journal claims the iPhone 7 will lose its headphone jack to "make the phone thinner and improve its water resistance," Chinese repair shop Rock Fix disagrees. Instead, the site says that Apple will be releasing three different versions of the iPhone 7: two 4.7-inch versions, split into one that retains the headphone jack and one that does not, as well as a larger 5.5-inch "Plus" version that's expected to swap out the headphone jack for a Lightning port. For now, we'll just have to wait and see.
