Exclusive: Leaked email reveals iPhone 7 release date


‘New iPhone’ will go on sale via Vodafone on September 25, according to e-mail leaked to Mobile News

Vodafone has told internal staff the next Apple iPhone handset will be released on September 25.

In an email to staff seen by Mobile News, the operator outlined pre-launch information, including that the operator will begin taking pre-orders for the device from September 18.

The email described the device as the ‘New iPhone’, suggesting the Californian firm may look to follow its strategy with its iPads by not giving it a number (7).

There was no information on whether a follow-up model to the larger screened iPhone 6 Plus would be made available. Apple previously described the 6 Plus as “cannibalising” the iPad after sales in its last financial results.

Apple has launched its last three flagships in September. The manufacturer has sold more than 700 million iPhone’s since the first incarnation went on sale back in 2007. Eight models have been released in total.



  1. That is basically the same email that all the operators send their staff every year. Its fairly predictable now when they release a new phone… The name is left as the new iPhone incase Apple through a curve ball.
