Apple announces launch event to unveil the iPhone 7


Apple has officially announced a launch event in San Francisco where it will end months of speculation and rumours and unveil the latest iPhone and its new features to the world.

Invites were sent to the media with simply the words “See you on the 7th” with lights in the background forming the top of the Apple logo.

The event will take place on September 7 at 10am at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium which is 3am on September 8 Australian Eastern Standard time.

Apple is expected to stream the event live through its website and through Apple TV.

So what are we likely to see?

The launch will be dominated by the iPhone 7 which is expected to thinner, with a better camera, faster processor and potentially as much as 256GB of onboard memory.

One thing that’s strongly rumoured to NOT be included on the iPhone 7 is a headphone jack so users will need to connect to the device either wirelessly with Bluetooth or with Lightning headphones which are already appearing in stores.


But apart from the iPhone, we may also see the next generation Apple Watch.

It has been two years ago since the Apple Watch was introduced and Apple could use the occasion to reveal the second generation product which could reportedly include a bigger battery, faster processor, built-in GPS and be fully waterproof.

We can also expect the latest updates on the iOS 10 software for iPhone and iPad, macOS Sierra for the Mac and watchOS 3 for Apple Watch as well as firm release dates when they can be downloaded.
