The Apple iPhone 7 may be unveiled on September 7.
The news, reported by Bloomberg, came in an article about the MacBook Pro upgrades.
Apple Inc. is gearing up for a substantial overhaul of its MacBook Pro laptop line, as stated by people having knowledge of the update. It will be the first time in four years a major upgrade is being made to the laptop.
Some of the features included in the new upgrade include a touch screen strip for function keys, and an enhanced and more efficient graphics processors for users.
Apple iPhone 7 to be unveiled on Sept 7?
In the last fiscal year the sales of Macs escalated by 6 percent, reaching $25.5 billion.
However, as reported by Bloomberg, the laptop line is not likely to be unveiled at the scheduled event of September 7, which will introduce the new versions of the iPhone.
Last month, Evan Blass tweeted that September 9 will mark the day when pre-orders for iPhone 7 will start, adding that they will hit the stores on September 16.
A similar trend was witnessed in 2015. As reported by Forbes, while the tech giant announced the unveiling of iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus on September 9 – incidentally, a Wednesday – pre-orders began on September 12 and the phones arrived in stores on September 25.
The major upgrade to the MacBook Pro comes in the midst of a time when people are taking longer to purchase or replace iPads. It has been estimated that users change their iPhones every 18 to 24 months, while they upgrade their iPads every three years.
Apple’s shares plummeted in May over growing concerns of its iPhone’s sales, reaching as low as $90.34. Since then, they have risen by 3.4 percent and currently stand at $108.81.
