The release of the iPhone 7 might come later than people thought. Rather than falling in the middle of the month, as expectations and previous leaks had suggested, the phone might instead be released towards the end, according to a new report. New leaked retail schedules from AT&T phone shops suggest that staff will be told to work later on 23 September to reset displays. That might suggest that the company will be getting ready to put the phones on sale that day, or at least that week, many have suggested. Jonathan Pierrard, 26, from Rossignol, Belgium is the first customer to leave with the new iPhone 6s at The Apple Store in Opera, after queuing for few days, in Parisr to open new shortcuts - a feature Apple calls 3D Touch.
The upcoming iPhone might be the last one to feature a home button, according to a new report. The 2017 handset – long rumoured to be a far bigger upgrade than any in previous years, including the iPhone 7 – will just be one big sheet of glass on the front, according to a Bloomberg report. That will be achieved by dropping the home button that has sat on the bottom of iPhones ever since they were first released in 2007. As such, it will likely bring a whole new design to the phone – which has previously been marked out by the iconic round shape at its bottom.

The best pictures yet seen of the iPhone 7 have been leaked – and appear to have confirmed that it's going to look mostly the same. An image published by a French blog claims to show the design of the phone, which is expected to be released in September. And they corroborate many of the biggest fears and rumours about the upcoming phone. That includes a long-running rumour that it will look almost identical to the existing one. The primary differences from the iPhone 6 and 6s is that Apple has moved the antenna lines that flow around the back of the phone onto the sides, so that they are less visible and disrupt the clean metal back of the phone less.
Apple is about to reveal iOS 10 – the operating system that will power the next iPhone – at its Worldwide Developer Conference. Though the company tends to use the event for software announcements, rather than new devices, it can be an important moment for getting a feel for what Apple is working on, and what exactly that secret new phone will look like. As such, the event can be one of the main ways of seeing what the new iPhone as well as other products will look like. Here's what to look out for. It's increasingly thought that Apple is dropping its traditional release schedule for its handsets.
Apple is set to hold its biggest software event of the year, WWDC, in the middle of June. It'll use the San Francisco event to show off all of the software that's on its way to your Watch, phone and other computers – as well as potentially new Apple devices. The event comes at a big time for Apple. The company is fresh off the back of its first quarter of decline since the iPhone came out, and is feeling the heat from other companies like Google. It will intend to use WWDC as a way of showcasing the software and potentially other products that it hopes will prove its doubters wrong and get the company to grow again.
