Apple hints at least one new iPhone is coming this September.
Following quite a while of tidbits that the upcoming iPhone will be delayed, Apple has given a silent clue despite what might be expected. In its earning release today, Apple said it expects to see anywhere from $49 billion to $52 billion in revenue next quarter — a number sufficiently high to indicate that an iPhone will launch on time. The quarter goes through September 30th, so we should hope to see an iPhone event early September and a launch in a week or so from that point.
Tim Cook hinted as much during a call discussing the earnings, saying Apple would have “very exciting Fall.”
That said, this doesn’t necessarily mean the redesigned iPhone that’s been leaking out is what Apple plans to release this September. There’s been some speculation that Apple could split the phone line: release an iPhone 7S in September, and release the redesigned model a few months later. Cook also promised more products “later this year,” but it’s likely we’ll see new iPads and potentially refreshed Macs around then too.
