Just to clarify, this refers to the retail release, not the launch event. To be even more specific, it should happen on Friday, Sept. 16th.

Blass doesn’t say who’s feeding him information (for obvious reasons), but he’s typically pretty spot-on, so I’m at least willing to believe the 16th is fairly recent information.
So clear your credit cards and get ready for pre-orders: the iPhone 7 is right around the corner.
