Apple likely to unveil new iPhones on September 7We're expected to get our first official look at the newest iPhones at next week's event, but Apple will likely show off more than that. Here's what we're expecting.
It's official, Apple's next event will take place on Wednesday, September 7th. An invite went out to the press, and as usual, offered very little in the way of actual details on what to look forward to. But, we've got some ideas on what to expect based on leaks Speculation and previous Apple events. We'll definitely see the newest iPhones unveiled with the most talked about feature, not a feature at all. No standard headphone jack. Other potential updates include a flush home button that's pressure sensitive, somewhat a resistance, and redesigned antenna bands. They'll look super similar to the iPhone 6S and 6S plus However, the iPhone 7+ looks like it's totting a dual lens camera. Of course, that's if a recent picture of Taiwanese pop star Jimmy Lin, holding the new iPhone is legit. Apple will also likely introduce us to an updated Apple Watch and spend some time refreshing our memory on iOS 10 and all of the updates it offers for iPhone and iPad users. There are some apps getting major overhauls, particularly Apple Music and messages. And we'll definitely see more demos showing off the software update features. HomeKit may also play a large role in the event, as Apple is making a big push for smart home connectivity to the iPhone. Of course we'll see all the standard Apple event happenings that are my favorite too. Tim Cook offering up stats. Craig feathering his hair, continuing to be on point.

So maybe they'll surprise us. That's it for this Tech News Update. I'm Ashley Esqueda, and you can stay on top of the biggest stories at Cnet.com/updates.
