If Apple sticks to its timeline, we may see the iPhone 7 announcement on September 6 or 7. Last year, the iPhone 6s was announced on September 9, a Wednesday, with the phone going up for pre-order three days later on September 12.
As for the device itself, rumors suggest that the iPhone 7 will eschew the 3.5mm audio jack for Lightning audio, along with upgraded internals and a larger camera unit.
