If you’re looking to buy your next smartphone it might be a good idea to wait for Apple’s rumored iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus to arrive.
As we approach the month of September, iPhone 8 rumors are starting to grow louder. Apple hasn’t sent out media invites yet but rumors suggest the company will take the curtain down and announce three new iPhone models including a flagship iPhone 8 next month.
Apple’s iPhone 8 will reportedly be accompanied by two new models that we’re calling the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. Others think they might be called iPhone 8/iPhone 8 or iPhone/iPhone Plus. Whatever the case may be, we should see two devices accompany the company’s next flagship to shelves this fall.
The iPhone 8 might be the device everyone is talking about but we expect the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus to deliver exciting flagship features. Rumored features include large high-resolution displays, wireless charging, upgraded internals, and three color options.
Now that we’re cruising through the month of August, most people looking to buy a new phone should wait for Apple to make its fall announcements. With that said, there are some reasons why you might just want to cave and pickup an iPhone or another device in August.
Our guide will take you through some of the best reasons to wait for the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus and some reasons why you might want to buy another phone right now.
iPhone 7s Release Date is Close
The first and perhaps best reason to wait for the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus is the simple fact that Apple's event is probably just a few weeks away.
iPhone rumors haven't been able to pinpoint an exact date just yet but most point to a launch sometime next month. September is the standard for new iPhone launches.
We fully expect invites to the annual fall media event to go out in late August or early September. We expect the event itself to take place in early-to-mid September followed by an iPhone 7s release in mid-to-late September.
If these rumors aren't convincing enough, Apple and its carrier partners have already started prepping for the iPhone 8 release date with policy changes and iPhone 8 reservations. We aren't the only ones expecting a launch to go down next month.
If you wait, you give yourself three more iPhone options to compare to the current crop of devices. Choice is never a bad thing when it comes to buying a new device.
This type of iPhone launch only happens once a year so most of you should hold out and what to see what Apple's got in store for 2017.
