You know it, Apple has been in the habit for a few years now of releasing their new iPhone during the month of September. According to a report posted online at the beginning of the month by our colleagues from AppleInsider, this could change in 2016, the arrival ofiPhone 7 being announced “a little earlier than expected”.
Since the iPhone 5 on September 21, 2012, all Apple smartphone models were launched in the second half of September. More recently, the iPhone 6S and 6S plus arrived in the hands of consumers on September 25, 2015.
However, a source said “reliable”Assured AppleInsider that this habit could end next year with the launch of the iPhone 7. The site specifies that this same person has, in the past, provided precise information on future plans for apple products. The release month remains unknown, however, but could be June or July, as was the case for the first four generations of iPhone.
Finally, the report explains that Apple could do so in order to avoid suffering a drop in iPhone sales in 2016. An advanced release of the iPhone 7 would allow the Cupertino company not to face a shortage of sales and thus continue to beat records (read: Apple: 13 million iPhone 6S & 6S Plus sold 3 days after their release).
