There's good news for any lads eagerly awaiting the release of the iPhone 7 as it looks likely it will be released on September 23, according to a leaked retail schedule from AT&T, the US mobile network.

The device will likely be unveiled in early September by Apple, with the phone hitting stores two weeks later.

AT&T's leaked retail schedule obtained by Apple website 9to5Mac lists two upcoming times that retailers expect a major restock of their stores. The schedule lists Friday September 9 and Friday September 23.

The first date is when Apple is expected to announce the product and the second is when it will be available to buy. Historically, iPhones have been released on Friday, which makes it more likely the date is true.

Apple is also expected to remove the 3.5mm headphone jack that almost all wired headphones use, a move that has proved controversial, with many users taking to social media to vent their frustrations.


The phone is expected to look similar to previous models the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s, but pack a better camera.

Chinese sources have reported that the iPhone 7 will charge far faster than previous models, bringing it in-line with 'fast charging' Androids like the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.

There have also been rumours that the iPhone 7 will also have a longer battery life, which is good news for any Apple users used to seeing their phone hit single digit battery life, and numerous leaks have all but confirmed that it will be waterproof


There's no news yet on the price. However, last year's 6s started at £539, so we can expect it to be in a similar price range. The pound has also fallen against the dollar since last year, which could potentially make the phone more expensive in the UK.

But all signs are currently pointing to the fact the new iPhone is going to be a beast.
