iPhone 7 release date, its expected price and features

The rumors have started to circulate all over the world about release date of iPhone 7. According to these rumors, the iPhone 7 release date will be sometime during September 2016 based on previous record and trend that the tech giant is following.

The rumors about iPhone 7 have been around since last 1 years where the analyst was expecting Apple to launch iPhone 7 and 7 Plus but the company came out with "S" moniker of iPhone 6.

The company released iPhone 6S and 6S plus in September month and both the devices are doing pretty well in terms of sales.


According to the latest rumors, the new iPhone which probably going to be called iPhone 7 will be released in September/October 2016 with latest specification and interesting features and this is the possible reason why many customers want to wait for all new iPhone 7 rather than buying 6S or 6S Plus.

Those who want to wait for the new iPhone will have a long waiting time as the company releases new iPhone during winters.

Release dates of all iPhone

According to iPhone 7 Buzz, the first every iPhone was released back in June, 2007 and till iPhone 4, the company followed the same released cycle i.e. the iPhone 3G was released exactly after one year in June 2008, 3G S in 2009 and the iPhone 4 in the June 2010.

It took some extra time for the company to announce iPhone 4S that was released in October 2011. Since then the techie decided to stick to winter releases. iPhone 5 was released in September 2012, 5S and 5C in September 2013, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in 2014 and 6S/6S Plus this year in September itself.

Based on this definite cycle of the release dates of different iPhones, I can predict that the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus could be released during the same time next year. 

It makes sense for the company to release new iPhone during this season because of several reasons and maximisation of festival sales is one of the most important reason why Apple should continue to announce new generation during this time.

People spend money to buy stuff for Christmas and for new year and this is time when company make big chunk of profit.

iPhone 7 features and specification

Screen size - The new iPhone 7 will be loading with super advanced hardware system and feature that will completely dominate the rivals.

According to the rumors Apple will stick to 4.7 and 5.5 inch size for iPhone 7 and 7 Plus however the company may switch to OLED screen instead of LCD.

The difference between OLED and LCD screen is that the OLED screen creates it own light to illuminate however LCD screen requires display light to glow.

Processor - As per the rumors, iPhone 7 could be powered by Intel chip as spotted by TheWeek however A10 will make the new iPhone super fast which could be coupled with 3GB RAM to make it work faster than ever.

Camera - Apple said to be working hard to boost camera quality and based on rumors the company is expecting to enhance primary camera pixel to 12 MP as compared to 8 MP in iphone 6 and 6 Plus. Apart from it, is is being said that iSight camera can improve picture quality tremendously.

Waterpoof - The new iPhone will be made waterproof to certain standard so that you can save it from the water upto a limit. There are certain standard to define waterproofing ability and if rumors come out to be true, the new iPhone can be waterproofed to IP67 standard to make it water as well dust proof.

Wireless charger  - The company could eliminate the traditional way of charging your iPhone instead you might be able to charge your iPhone wirelessly. 

Sapphire Glass - It is much rumored that new iPhone will sport sapphire glass to protect the screen of this expensive phone.

The sapphire glass is not easily breakable even if the phone slips off the hand. The use of sapphire glass in new iPhone was rumored since long and iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were suppose to use the same but none of them could make it. Now it is being predicted that new iPhone 7 will have sapphire glass.

iPhone 7 price

As far as price is concern, the company may skip 16 GB model and for 32 GB iPhone 7 you may need to spend between 700-900 USD depending upon your location however the 64 GB and 128 GB model will be even costlier as suggested by the rumors.
