The iPhone 7 has been leaked and discussed over and over again, with rumors that leave you wondering exactly what will the official iPhone 7 unveil bring. Well, there’s no need to worry any longer: Apple has confirmed Wednesday, September 7th, as the day of the official iPhone 7 unveil.
Apple has sent out an invite-only event announcement to the press, with the words “See you on the 7th” and even smaller print: “Please join us for an invitation-only event at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco on Wednesday, September 7, at 10:00 a.m.” The iPhone 7 unveil will occur at 10am PT on September 7th.
The poster shows a black background with dual color circles (two blue circles, for example) and what appears to be a “seeing double” effect — which is likely hinting at either 1) optical image stabilization or OIS for the entry-level iPhone 7 or 2) a dual camera for the new iPhone 7 Plus, or both. We can speculate, but we won’t know until the official announcement.
We know for a fact that iPhone 7 unveil will show the iPhone 7 Plus with a dual camera setup, the iPhone 7 with OIS for the first time, and that there will be a 256GB storage model for both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The iPhone 7 will have a minimum of 32GB of internal storage this year, as opposed to the 16GB storage minimum that has been the standard for Apple for some years. With that said, though, the price of the base model will climb to about $690 for 16GB to $790 for 32GB. As for the iPhone 7 Plus, prices will climb from $800 for the 32GB model to $910. The 256GB iPhone 7 Plus will cost around $1,180 (yes, you’re reading this price right), with the 256GB regular iPhone 7 costing around $1,080. Those are rather expensive prices when you consider that Apple isn’t even adding a dual camera setup to the regular iPhone 7. Even on the iPhone 7 Plus, though, these prices seem highly unjustified — though there is a $100 markup in storage because the storage is getting doubled (which is the typical pricing rate for many tech companies these days).
The iPhone 7 unveil is just a few days away, and we’ve heard that a slightly larger battery will accompany the new models. We don’t know all that Apple has to say, but we do know that if you want excitement from the fruit company, you’ll have to wait until next year.
