Hype for the iPhone 7 is continuously mounting. With rumors swirling around the specs and design of the new Apple gadget, another aspect fans are dying to learn about is its release date. Recent rumors may point to Australia as being one of the first countries to receive the device, with a September 8 release date circulating online.

iPhone7ReleaseDate is the one to suggest that the Australian release date has been published in the web. However, the website does not provide any source to back this claim. The nature of the site should also warn readers to take this piece of information with a grain of salt.

Meanwhile on other related news, BGR reports that one highly-anticipated feature of the iPhone 7 is instead being removed from the upcoming device. According to the website, an anonymous Foxconn employee revealed that the dual lens camera feature has been cancelled for the iPhone 7 Plus.

For those not aware, Foxconn is the Taiwanese contract manufacturing company responsible for supplying electronics and information technology products, which includes iPhones and iPads.

According to the BGR report, the employee claimed that the feature was cancelled due to “immature technology.”

Although nothing can be confirmed unless Apple itself makes an official statement, it is important to note that some of the claims made for other iPhones before have been proven accurate. If the cancellation of the dual lens camera feature will turn out to be true, then it will be a big disappointment for the fans.

Still, Gordon Kelly of Forbes reports that despite the numerous rumors suggesting how the iPhone 7 will be a big disappointment, Apple may have thought of one redeeming factor for their upcoming gadget: the removal of the home button. Instead of the iconic feature, a touch-sensitive surface will take its place.

At this point, any new information that surfaces regarding the iPhone 7 could either be true or false; hence, it is important to keep in mind that only official confirmation from Apple will confirm or debunk these reports.

The iPhone 7 release date in Australia, and anywhere in the world, could still be a long way but you can visit our site from time to time to check for new information.
