Apple to launch something on 7/7

Apple are up to something. They're going to be holding an event on 7 September.

As ever, Apple are being coy about the whole thing, but it looks like it'll concern the launch of the iPhone 7 and the Apple Watch 2.

The tech giant - shy with the tax, apparently - usually hold their events in September, and have done so for the last five years.

This will be a biggie for Apple though, as this is going to be the first launch they've done while sales of iPhones have been on the slide. Basically, they're going to have to get everyone particularly excited, rather than just announce a few tweaks.

Will the talk of the shifting around on the antenna do it for everyone? Not likely.

However, if Apple do away with their headphone jack, which has been strongly rumoured, that could be a big bit of news. People may hate the news, but it'll be a big talking point all the same.

There's also been a lot of chatter about the quality of the camera on the new iPhone.

There's been less chat about the potential for the new Apple Watch, which may be because smartwatches haven't taken over the world like some people expected them to.

Any developments with that, will surely concern people's constant need to track and test how healthy they are.

Naturally, it wouldn't be an Apple event if they weren't livestreaming it, which they'll be doing again this year, leaving a variety of newspapers to liveblog the whole thing.

They come around so fast these days, don't they?
