Apple announced the date for the iPhone 7 event
The anticipation is so thick, you can measure it in millimeters ... 3.5 of them, to be exact.
It's that time again, folks. That day when we all huddle around our primitive, soon-to-be one-generation-older displays, and watch a billion-dollar company announce its latest incremental developments. That day — Apple's iPhone 7 Event Day — will be this day: September 7.
A New iPhone and Second Generation Apple Watch Are on the Horizon
Yes, the rumor is that Apple will remove the headphone jack, although recently some blogs seem to think it won't come to pass. That controversial removal, however, is presumed to be the only substantial design change from the iPhone's last generation.
Meanwhile, the second generation of the Apple Watch could also be announced next week. We should see the new model receive a GPS and faster CPU. (It would probably be more surprising if it didn't have a faster processor than its 2-year-old predecessor.)
Get Excited for iPhone Price Drops
Of course, every new iPhone generation heralds price drops on the previous model, and this year will be no different. In fact, last year the iPhone 6 was discounted by $150 when the iPhone 6s was announced. For more details on what kind of iPhone deals you can expect to see next month, check out our feature.
