Report: Apple to Unveil iPhone 7 on Sept. 7

...

Apparently, the PlayStation 4 Neo isn't the only thing we'll be hearing about on Sept. 7. Word has it that Apple is planning an event the same day.

Bloomberg on Wednesday reported that the Cupertino tech giant has "an event currently scheduled for Sept. 7 to introduce next-generation versions of the iPhone."

Granted, Apple has not made any official announcements, so this is not confirmed. But Bloomberg heard it from "people familiar with the matter," so it has to be true, right? Apple didn't immediately respond to PCMag's request for comment, and a spokesman for the tech giant flat-out declined Bloomberg's request.

Last month, well-known and reliable leaker Evan Blass, who commonly shares inside information about upcoming smartphones on his Twitter account, tipped a Sept. 16 next-gen iPhone release. That Sept. 16 date, according to Blass, is when the phone will hit store shelves, suggesting that Apple's launch event would happen before. So Bloomberg's sources could be right about this.

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 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 upcoming models. They will likely be thinner, but with the same 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screen sizes used for the past two years.

Meanwhile, more significant changes are reportedly in the works for Apple's MacBook Pro laptop lineup. The upcoming notebooks, which are rumored to support Touch ID and have OLED touch bar where the function keys would normally be, won't be making their debut on Sept. 7, however, according to Bloomberg's sources.
