Apple is set to launch a new iPhone on the 7th of September in San Francisco. In usual fashion, the company will be releasing a new device towards the end of the year (good strategy Apple!).
The invitations to the event have already been sent out and although Apple normally leaves hints via the invites but this one simply reads “See you on the 7th”.
It doesn’t matter though, here are five things we’ve gathered so far about the new launch.
Both the latest iPhone model and the one before it, iPhone 6 and 6s respectively, were released in September and if there are things to take away from the vague invite, it’s that “See you on the 7th” to mean it’s an iPhone 7 we are getting.
Asides the words, the invite also features colourful translucent bubbles which might hint at a phone that is waterproof. High time since Sony’s waterproof range were such a hit when they were released.
The coloured bubbles may also hint at more a more colourful range as opposed to the metallic versions of current models.
A new camera function?
With companies like Huawei partnering with Leica to make a new phone with dual lens, Apple will do well to introduce a new model with an improved camera function. Besides, there are reports about Chinese social media been awash with a photo suggesting a new phone design that features no more antenna lines and a bigger camera lens.
No more home button
Believe it or not we’ve read that the new iPhone model might lose the signature circular home button which will be weird but then who knows?
Maybe just nothing new as always because according to Forbes contributor, Ewan Spencer, Apple is losing its sparkle as being somehow above the fray of normal consumer electronics… now it’s just ‘another manufacturer’.
