Noted tipster Evan Blass has been dropping information about release date of the upcoming iPhone every day this week, and after saying that the iPhone 2016 will hit the shelves on September 16, the tipster has now revealed the date when the smartphone is expected to go up for pre-order.
According to Blass, Apple will begin pre-orders of the new iPhone on September 9. Typically, the company begins pre-orders three days after the launch event. Therefore, if this new information from Blass is true, then the earlier speculated September 5 or 6 launch event date is rather likely. Apple's media invites should begin to roll out mid-August revealing the official launch event date.
The new iPhone - which could be called the iPhone 7 or the iPhone 6SE, depending upon who you believe - has been making headlines for quite some time now, and very little is left to the imagination ahead of the launch.
The new iPhone should see a better camera, a shift in antenna bands, a faster A10 chipset, and a separate additional larger variant is expected to get visible hardware changes as well. Earlier leaks suggest that the Plus variant will just be larger, similar to the iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6s Plus. There were also suggestions that a 'Pro' variant with a dual camera setup and a Smart Connector at the back will also been launched. A new Space Black colour variant has also been tipped in various leaks.
The upcoming iPhone has been leaked in photos and videos revealing the smartphone from all angles. There's also a tip that Apple may make minimal design changes to the iPhone this year, breaking the traditional tick-tock cycle.
