Apple is expected to reveal the iPhone 7 in September 2016 and there’s already a huge amount of hype surrounding the next-generation smartphone. Apple is expected to reveal the next iteration of its ever-popular iPhone on Wednesday. The Californian tech giant usually updates its smartphone lineup in early September so it can see out the end of the year on a high. This year it will almost certainly be the iPhone 7 that’s been revealed, and the online rumor mill is going into overdrive ahead of the announcement.
Well-connected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities has issued a new research note, claiming that the iPhone 7 will include one very useful feature for photo fanatics. The phone will reportedly have four LED flash lights – two in cool colors, and two in warm colors – and an ambient light sensor. While the iPhone 6s ‘ camera is widely praised, it still struggles to take good photos in low-light situations. These additions should theoretically improve image quality. It is unclear whether the new features will appear on the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 or just the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus, which is also expected to feature a dual-lens camera capable of taking SLR-quality photos.
Apple has sent out invitations for an event, where it is widely expected to unveil the iPhone 7. The event is taking place at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco on Wednesday, September 7, at 10am local time, (6pm BST). Apple often likes to include a hidden message in its invitations, but this one gives very little away. It carries the tagline “See you on the 7th” – which may allude to the name of the iPhone 7, as well as the date. Although the launch will take place on 7 September, there is usually a gap between Apple unveiling its latest iPhone and the device going on sale.
