“Apple is looking to release its 10th-generation iPhone on Sept. 16, prominent mobile phone news leaker Evan Blass said Saturday,” Patrick Seitz reports for Investor’s Business Daily.

“Apple was widely expected to launch its iPhone 7 in September, but the VentureBeat reporter was the first to put a specific date on the release,” Seitz reports. “Apple usually holds a press event to announce its latest iPhone the week before its release.”

“The iPhone 7 is already in production, and leaked photos show that it will come in three models: the 4.7-inch iPhone 7, and two versions with 5.5-inch displays — the iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7 Pro,” Seitz reports. “The new high-end Pro model has a dual-lens rear camera and Smart Connector, which allows connected peripherals to simultaneously share power and data, Forbes reported. Other Apple watchers believe the Cupertino, Calif.-based company might decide to release just one 5.5-inch model iPhone 7.”
