See you on the 7th: Apple's iPhone event is confirmed

Mark your calendars for Sept. 7 at 10 a.m. Pacific for the unveiling of the iPhone 7.

Apple will take the wraps off the newest iPhone(s) and perhaps a second-gen Apple Watch at an event on Sept. 7 at 10 a.m. Pacific/1 p.m. Eastern. The venue is a standard Apple pick, San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium.

The invitation, which Apple emailed to media outlets on Monday morning, gives away absolutely nothing. “See you on the 7th,” it says. That’s it. But if history tells us anything, it’s that new iPhones are on deck next week. The invite’s colorful lights could be hinting at that incredible dual lens camera we’ve been hearing so much about, though maybe we’re just grasping there. The next-gen iPhone is also expected to ditch the headphone jack, a controversial decision if ever there was one.

We’ll also see final updates to iOS 10 and macOS Sierra, which were previewed at June’s Worldwide Developers Conference and will be released this fall.

Check out our constantly updated iPhone 7 rumor roundup to get up to speed on which rumors are credible and which are probably junk. We’ve also been hearing rumors about refreshed Apple Watch hardware for awhile, so we may see an Apple Watch 2 alongside a watchOS 3 refresher at the September event. Itsounds like the upgraded watch won’t include long-awaited cellular capabilities for a true stand-alone experience, nor will it be a dramatical overhaul in appearance.

Macworld will be on the ground at the event with all the news as it unfolds, so be sure to mark your calendar for Sept. 7 and join us for our annual iPhone live-blog. Apple will live-stream the event as usual, so you can join in as it unfolds.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
