Apple iPhone 7 and 7 Plus Pre-ordering Starts September 9th [Confirmed]

Apple is set to launch its next iPhone handset(s) very soon – in fact the next Apple event is scheduled for September and that’s the date when we should get our first glimpse of the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. But the next question will be when will they actually go on sale?

Twitter tech leaker Evan Blass (@evleaks) has shed some light on the subject and after many correct predictions over the years may have the final answer, pegging down an iPhone 7 and 7 Plus pre-order date for Friday the 9th of September – a date which he claims to be confirmed.

If history is anything to go by, this should place the iPhone 7 / 7 Plus launch event just a few days earlier at around Tuesday the 6th of September. Earlier Blass had suggested that the Apple event would take place on September the 12th with the mobiles going on sale from September the 16th. But the earlier the better, right?

The leaker also seemed to confirm the codenames for both new handsets to be ‘Sonora’ and ‘Dos Palos’ – which are names of Californian counties. The Apple event will take place at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco.

The iPhone 7 is set to be coming with a 4.7-inch display with the iPhone Plus 7 featuring 5.5-inch display and both will come preloaded with the new iOS 10 software. A new version of Apple’s own A10 processor is expected as is a 12-megapixel main camera – you may recall that bulbous camera lens on the back, but overall the handset is expected to feature a thinner form factor thanks to absence of a 3.5mm headphone jack (this is still is question).

Force Touch sensor may be replacing the physical Home button and there are re-positioned antenna bands and smart connectors for modular add-ons seen in a number of the artists interpretations floating about the web as launch day looms.

In other iPhone news, it was reported that Apple has sold it’s billionth iPhone this week after 9 years. This since the original was released in 2007 and ten iterations of the handset have subsequently become available over the years.
