On September 7, 2016, Apple will announce iPhone 7 details. They could unveil new MacBook Pros and the Apple Watch 2 at the same event.


Both iPhone 7 models are expected to introduce a darker color for the black-front model. The iPhone 5 introduced a dark blue color called slate that was prone to scuffing, and Apple has played with versions of its ‘space gray’ gunmetal gray color since the iPhone 5s. The iPhone 7 is expected to feature a return to a dark blue color or maybe even a near black ‘space black‘ option.

As you may notice in the alleged leaked cases above, Apple is also widely expected to drop the 3.5-mm headphone jack on both iPhone 7 models in a push toward Lightning, Bluetooth, and AirPlay audio.  While both models are expected to gain faster A10 processors and drop the 16GB tier for 32GB entry models, the most dramatic change is likely coming to the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus.

As for the Apple Watch 2, the anticipated refresh will mark the first update since the current model was unveiled two years ago and released a year and a half ago. The design is expected to look generally the same, but much needed speed improvements are on the way and a GPS chip for mapping workouts and using location services is expected.

Apple later released the 9.7-inch iPad Pro at its March event earlier this year, new iPads aren’t expected until next year, and rumors of an updated Apple TV haven’t surfaced aside from one story late last year.  Apple will also likely give stage time once again to its upcoming software updates: iOS 10, macOS Sierra, watchOS 3, and tvOS 10.
