Assuming Blass' information is accurate and the iPhone 7 does come out the week of 12 September — likely on that Friday, 16 September — it’s safe to assume Apple will hold an event the week before, possibly on 6 September, which is the day after Labor Day in the U.S.
There’s no major evidence to back Blass’ claim up but the timing seems right. Bloggers and tech sites has seen numerous leaks over the past few weeks, suggesting manufacturing overseas is well under way. Earlier, Blass also revealed the alleged code names for Apple’s two new iPhone models, Sonora and Dos Palos.
Based on past rumors, everyone should expect the iPhone 7 to feature an improved antenna band design, larger camera, and no 3.5mm headphone jack. Additionally, a rumor claimed the iPhone 7 Plus would sport a dual camera setup, 3GB of RAM, a second speaker for stereo sound, and possibly a Smart Connector, something that’s present in Apple’s iPad Pro.
Tentatively mark the calendars for the week of 12 September.
