What We Expect from Apple at iPhone 7 Launch Event on September 7

A media event will be held by Apple on 7th September. Possibly, it will be the biggest technology event of 2016 where we will see the new iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and a range of headphones for the first time.

A controversy is there that the iPhone 7 will come without a headphone socket. In fact, headphones will be connected via Lightning port or wirelessly. Even, Apple will add an adapter in the box enabling basic headphones to the power port of iPhone 7 for easing this transition.

The event will be held at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in California’s San Francisco. Tim Cook, Chief Executive will initiate the presentation and hopefully it will last for 90-120 minutes.
So, after seeing all rumours, leaks and gossips, here’s everything we expect to see at the launch event:

iPhone 7:
iPhone 7 will be unveiled at this media event and it will feature the same design as its 2 predecessors, saving a prime upgrade for 2017. Aside from the unshapely antenna lines, some of which will be removed, the basic shape, look and size of this smartphone will remain unchanged. Apple iPhone 7 will look little thinner because of the headphone jack’s removal. Even it will come in a black colour that is darker than Space Grey.

Ultimately, Apple will remove the 16GB storage option and it must start at either 64 or 32GB and should be extended up to either 256 or 128GB.
As per rumours, iPhone 7’s Home Button will be touch-sensitive and it will be able to augment the click by itself.
