When does the iPhone 7 come out and what time is the Apple 2016 launch event? Everything you need to know
Apple appears to have confirmed the launch date of its long-awaited iPhone 7 and it's expected in the Apple September 2016 event.
Apple has sent out media invitations for an event this week, where it is widely expected to unveil its next flagship handset - 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).
The company will live stream the event on it's website, although you'll only be able to watch it on an Apple Mac or iOS device. You can also follow all the action as it happens on the Mirror live blog.
It carries the tagline "See you on the 7th" - which may allude to the name "iPhone 7", as well as the date.
It also features a number of translucent coloured dots outlining the top portion of Apple's logo, which may relate to the rumour that Apple is planning to introduce new coloured handsets.
In photography, this out-of-focus effect is called bokeh. It is usually hard to create with a phone camera, suggesting that the iPhone 7 could feature an upgraded camera lens.
However, the dots could also be water droplets, which would be relevant if Apple was planning to launch a waterproof iPhone.
Rumours have been swirling about the iPhone 7 for many months, with numerous rumours and leaked photos adding fuel to the frenzy.
The most persistent (and controversial) rumour is that Apple is going to get rid of the headphone socket .
This means you will either have to buy a pair of headphones that use a Lightning cable, get an adapter, or use Bluetooth headphones - although Apple may choose to include some in the box .
