On Wednesday, September 7, Apple is holding its annual press event to unveil its iPhone 7 to the world at the Bill Graham Civic Center in San Francisco. The event will start at 1PM ET / 10AM PST / 6PM BST, and of course, the company will stream the event live for everyone who can’t attend.
All eyes will be in the next version of the iPhone, which it’s said not to be as revolutionary as the first iPhone. The new device is expected to be very similar to the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. However, nothing has been said until Apple actually unveils the device. We’re not even clear if the new iPhone will be called “iPhone 7” or something totally new.
It’s still unclear how many iPhone 7 models Apple is planning to release, but rumors suggest that there are three screen sizes, including a 4-inch, 4.7-inch, and 5.5-inch. It’s also possible that the company may release an “iPhone Pro” with a different set of features.
In addition, the computer giant may also unveil a new Apple Watch, which is likely to improve performance and introduce new features.
The MacBook Pro may also get a refresh, as it’s been a while since the company announced a new version. However, Apple may hold on the unveiling for a later day.
Finally, Apple may also talk about software update, including macOS Sierra, iOS 10, watchOS 3, and tvOS 10.
