The launch of a new smartphone from Apple is said to be the biggest event in the tech industry and even more so when it is a brand new device and not simply the upgraded 'S' version in the iPhone lineup.

Though we normally don’t get any official statement from the company before the launch, the device has its fair share of rumours and leaks. The latest comes from Evan Blass, considered an authority when it comes to leaks related to smartphones and other gadgets. According to the 'reputable' leaker, Apple is set to take pre-orders for the latest device starting from September 9.
Confirmed: Pre-orders start on the 9th. You can extrapolate the launch event date from there. https://t.co/gwoPzIM1dI— Evan Blass (@evleaks) July 28, 2016
Pre-orders for Apple devices normally start a week before the device is launched which would mean the official event for the launch will be held on September 16. This also falls in line with an earlier rumour that suggested the release date to be in the second week of September.

Blass has not yet disclosed his source for the leak and even though his reputation in the area is commendable, we have no official source to confirm the claim. Therefore, we can only wait till Apple gives us an official date.
