iPhone 7 to release on September 16, here’s what to expect
Finally, there is a release date for the much-awaited Apple iPhone 7 – it is Friday, September 16. This is when the new iPhone is set to hit shelves. The information comes via reputed Apple leaker Evan Blass. Nothing is officially known through Apple yet. According to a tweet by Blass iPhone 2016 release is scheduled for the week of September 12. Initially, there was confusion whether a week of September 12 was the release date or the date of Apple’s launch event, which was later clarified by Blass through a tweet.
Just to clarify, this refers to the retail release, not the launch event. To be even more specific, it should happen on Friday, Sept. 16th.

With the release date finally available, we thought it would be fitting to details some of the expected features of the new iPhone. All of these are particularly rumors for now, but these have been floated numerous times around the tech sphere.
While rumors have it that most amazing, and new features are reserved for the iPhone 7 Plus, which could be launched alongside the iPhone 7; nonetheless, there will be a handful of changes that will be available on the alleged iPhone 6 look-alike – the iPhone 7.
iPhone 7 is scheduled to support a 4.7-inch display with a highly progressive camera technology embedded. The camera on the iPhone 7 will protrude slightly more out of the device’s surface than in iPhone 6. It will have a standard iPhone camera layout with a single camera (as opposed to dual camera anticipated in the iPhone 7 plus) but with a larger sensor, which suggests more pixels and better low light performance.
What is guaranteed at this point is a lack of a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack on the iPhone 7. This is evident from the fact that all the renders and information on the iPhone 7 yet does not feature a headphone jack. Apple is however expected to provide a lightning connector with adaptor inside the phone box, which will convert from lightning to headphone jack.
iPhone 7 is likely to be 1mm slimmer that the iPhone 6, which would be possible if the 3.5mm audio jack is excluded.
The new iPhone would allegedly part with 16GB entry-level model. The model will instead come in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB configurations. There is a 256GB model on the cards too.
A recent rumor also suggested the iPhone 7 will feature a larger 1960mAh battery, in comparison, iPhone 6 has a 1715mAh battery.
