Evan Blass, prominent leaker and VentureBeat reporter, has revealed what he believes to be the release window for the next iPhone. If his hunch is correct, then we should expect the iPhone 7 and its various iterations to be released on 16 September 2016.
Since Apple traditionally positions its major hardware releases for Fridays, and reveals the device about 10 days prior to the release, which would make Wednesday 7 September the reveal date for the iPhone 7.
South Africa should receive the iPhone 7 within a month of the iPhone 7 being revealed.
Our prediction at this stage as that iPhone 7 will be available in South Africa on Friday 14 October 2016.
