AppleInsider reports that industry expert Evan Blass has tweeted that pre-orders for the iPhone 7 will begin on Friday, September 9, writing “Confirmed: Pre-orders start on the 9th. You can extrapolate the launch event from there.” Blass had already tweeted last week that the iPhone 7 would be going on sale on Friday, September 19.
If true, this would certainly fit in with Apple’s preferred timeline for release of its devices, with the company announcing the iPhone 6s on September 9, 2015, accepting first pre-orders 3 days after that, on September 12, and shipping the first phones 1 week after that. The early pre-orders were then delivered on September 25, or, in the case of some lucky individuals, a few days earlier than that.
With this timeline in mind, it’s likely that Apple will be holding the iPhone 7 (and possibly other devices, such as Apple Watch) announcement event either on Tuesday September 6 or Wednesday September 7 2016. Expect invitations to be going out to the press fairly soon.
