iPhone 7 Event Set for Sept. 7: What to Expect

Well, look what just appeared in our inbox. Apple has sent out invitations to a special event for Sept. 7 in San Francisco, where the company is expected to announce the iPhone 7 and possibly the Apple Watch 2.

The invite says "See you on the 7th." We're trying not to read to much in to the imagery, but some on staff pointed out that the multiple colored circles on a black background could point to the expected advancements in the iPhone 7's camera, especially in low light.

If you look closely, the pattern of the circles cleverly create the top of Apple's logo.

For those who have not been following the rumors, the iPhone 7 will reportedly feature a revamped camera, with the iPhone 7 getting dual lenses. In addition, the new flagships will likely offer faster A10 processors, a new pressure-sensitive home button and a water-proof or water-resistant design.

The most controversial rumor is that Apple is getting rid of the iPhone's headphone jack, which the company may be doing to support higher-resolution audio (or to just get us all using Bluetooth more).

The iPhone 7's design isn't expected to see a major change, with the exception of the removal of the unsightly antenna bands on the back and the possible addition of a new deep blue color.

The Apple Watch 2 rumors have been swirling as well, which point to a water-resistant design, beefier battery and built-in GPS, among other enhancements.

What will it take to get you to upgrade to the iPhone 7? Or are you more excited by Android phones like the Galaxy Note 7? Let us know in the comments and stay tuned for all the news on Sept. 7.
