iPhone 7 & iPhone 7 Plus Release:
No doubts, we will be getting to see the next generation iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. We already heard too much about them, and we know lots of stuff about them.
Dual Camera System – Apple will be packing the next-generation iPhone models with the dual-camera system. We heard lots of rumors claiming dual-camera system making its way to iPhone 7 Plus. Apple also hinted at the improved camera system with their media event invitation to outlets. The bigger iPhone 7 Plus will be getting a dual camera, while the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 to carry the optical image stabilization, which was previously limited to Plus models only.
Same Design – Yes. It is heartbreaking for many. Apple is going to seed iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus with iPhone 6s like design profile. The major design difference will be the repositioned antenna lines on next-generation devices. The newer devices will come with smoother antenna lines placements. We have been getting numerous iPhone 7 concepts targeting the repositioned antenna lines.
No headphone jack – Well, we all know Apple loves to make thinner devices. The iPhone 7 is going to witness yet another bold move by Apple. We heard rumors and even iPhone 7 package leak suggesting that there will be no headphone jack in the latest device. Apple is pushing everyone to use wireless headphones or at least earpods with lightening cable.
New Color – Space Black option – A number of sources believes Apple is going to introduce a new space black color option this year in iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus to make them stand out in rest of the iPhone lineup. We have seen Apple including Rose Gold color as a flagship color for iPhone 6s. The Same thing can happen with iPhone 7.
No more 16GB – We all want this. The 16GB option is no more suitable for new-generation iPhone models. And, it seems Apple is considering to move from 16GB to 32GB disk space as a base storage for iPhone 7. Apple is moving forward with 32GB as a base disk storage and an option of disk storage up to 256GB.
iOS 10 GM Release at iPhone 7 Release Event:
Apple is preparing iOS 10 release for iPhone and iPad devices. iOS 10 GM download is expected to go available to developers during the iPhone 7 release event. Apple aggressively released iOS 10 beta in the last few days and then maintained silence for the iOS 10 GM release. We were expecting iOS 10 beta 9 release to developers, but it seems Apple is about to repeat itself.
One of our sources claimed iOS 10 GM download would go available to developers. The iOS 10 Gold Master build is similar to final iOS 10 firmware version. It will be the last iOS 10 beta to developers before the public launch. We must be expecting Apple to roll out the iOS 10 GM during the show silently. It will be available to developers and non-developers as well under the iOS 10 Public beta.

We have trimmed down the Apple Watch 2 rumors to sensible ones. Most of the reports based on each other. We will get the final green signal from Apple on the launch event.
Apple Watch 2 – Same Design – Apple is not even going to upgrade Apple Watch 2 design. Rumors suggested that Watch 2 will come with the first-generation look but improved bands and connectivity. Mostly, Apple will try to rule the world with new straps and model configurations to attract more people towards Apple Watch.
We also heard Apple Watch is already sold out all over the Apple Stores ahead of the event. It is a very clear message from Apple to everyone about the upcoming Apple Watch 2 being in the pipeline.
GPS Feature – According to reports, the Apple Watch 2 is expected to carry a standalone GPS chip, enabling Apple Watch 2 to perform more independent tasks. We have seen Apple Watch totally relying on iPhone to perform basic tasks. Apple is making a difference between iPhone and Apple Watch 2 with the addition of GPS functionality.
Improved Battery – In the first generation Apple Watch, the battery was the biggest issue. Many users complained about the battery drain issue on their Apple Watch. Part leaks suggest Apple is improving battery in Apple Watch 2.
watchOS 3 – While everyone was busy with iOS 10 beta, Apple was preparing watchOS 3 for Apple Watch 2 product. The new watchOS 3 to be running on Apple Watch 2 by default. It will be optimized to give more performance than the original Apple Watch.

We are expecting Apple to announce premium level accessories for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus devices. Reports are pointing towards the improved ear pods, wireless ear pods and lots of stuff.
Wireless EarPods or AirPods? – Apple is rumored to packing wireless ear pods with iPhone 7 Plus devices for the launch. The iPhone 7 part leaks already suggested that Apple is going to force everyone into using wireless headphones instead of traditional 3.5mm headphone jack devices. AirPods branding is yet to come into the play, but we are expecting to learn more about it at the Apple’s iPhone 7 release event.
Lightening EarPods – Since every other rumor is suggesting wireless earpods for upcoming iPhone 7 devices, we have our take on all this. Apple can push everyone to use wireless headphones, but cannot force the audience. There is going to be some other option as well for the iPhone users. There might be an EarPods update with lightening cable.
macOS Sierra Release:
Apple is preparing lots of software stuff to release at iPhone 7 event. We are expecting Apple to introduce all-new macOS Sierra for Mac machines.
