Apple may be planning an iPhone 7 release in September
Apple watcher says the new iPhone is coming in the week of September 12th
Cue the lines at the Apple Store—the world could be just months away from the newest iPhone.
Evan Blass, a prominent Apple watcher with an accurate track record of predicting the tech giant's releases, posted a tweet early Saturday saying the latest iPhone iteration would be released the week of September 12. Thus far, Apple has given no overt indication that it's planning an event.

Recently, rumors surfaced that Apple was planning to push out three different iPhone 7s—with leaked photos depicting a larger screen and bigger storage capacity. At least one of those phones is said to be a professional version, Apple Insider reported this week.
Yet Blass, a reporter for VentureBeat whose cultivated a reputation as an Apple tipster, dismissed the idea that the smartphone maker would create a "Pro" version of the device. However, he added that Apple was likely to put out at least two new versions of its signature smartphone.

Apple, which usually doesn't respond to speculation about impending releases, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
