After much torment, Apple sent out invites for its launch event on September 7. As the tradition goes, the company kept the invite simple and minimal, keeping the mystery alive for as long as they can. However, a fresh mail sent by Apple-owned Beats to a French website has let it slip that Beats is also unveiling a selection of new Beats by Dre products at the launch event.
The invite was received by iGen.fr, and it reads (translated), “The Apple Keynote, awaited by all lovers of technology! Do not miss this event, a selection of new Beats by Dre products will be revealed September 7th, 2016.”
This invite was sent only to the said publication, and it was reportedly sent by mistake. It has since been removed after the Beats press service requested the publication to withdraw the screenshot. If true, it means Apple will have its hands full for the September 7 launch event. Apart from the Beats products, Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, Apple Watch 2, new wireless EarPods, and the rollout details for iOS 10. While Apple was first expected to unveil the refreshed Mac lineup at the event as well, the launch date for those products is now speculated to be October.
The most awaited launch is however the iPhone 7. It is expected to ditch the 3.5mm audio jack and the16GB base storage variant. Apple is looking to introduce a new 32GB base variant, and bundle Lightning-powered EarPods with the iPhone 7. There is going to be camera upgrades, and the larger variant is expected to sport a dual camera setup and a Smart Connector at the back.
