Now that Apple has officially confirmed that it will be holding a media event on September 7th, it’s almost guaranteed that we will see a new iPhone announced during the event. September is traditionally when new iPhones are unleashed unto the world, and we see few reasons to believe 2016 will be any different. We’ve also been treated to more than a few leaks over the past days and weeks, though some of them have been from questionable sources.
The same may not be said about today’s latest leak however. Coming form the often accurate Sonny Dickson, the leak comes in the form of a simple tweet.
In fact, the tweet was so simple that it didn’t have any text with it, but what it did have was a single video which claims to show an iPhone 7 Plus in fully working order and powered on. This would be the first time we’ve seen such a thing in a form that we at least have a bit of faith in given Dickson’s track record and while we can’t guarantee it’s genuine, we wouldn’t be at all surprised if it is.
We do have reason for pause here though because it’s far from clear whether the video was filmed by Sonny Dickson himself, or whether it was provided to him by a third-party. Should that be the case then the probability of this video being genuine has to take a nosedive, so for the moment we are far from ready to say this is the real deal.
It might be. It may even be likely. But certain? Not on your life.
Still, with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus set to be announced on September 7th for a release a week later on the 16th (or two weeks later on 23rd, depending on which rumor you believe in), we sure don’t have much longer to wait before all of our questions are answered. Then we can get to looking forward to next year’s iPhone instead!
