The iPhone 7S is on the cusp of being revealed to the world, and it’s so close to landing in our pockets that websites and retailers are already opening pre-order pages ahead of Apple’s next smartphone.
If the rumours about the handset are to be believed, Apple is planning a few firsts, including an ‘all-glass’ design and the final ditching of the Home button.
Despite being a hot topic before it’s even hit the shelves, there’s still no set release date for the iPhone 7S, but that doesn’t mean you can’t jump in line now to be among the first to get your hands on it.
We recommend heading over to Mobiles.co.uk to register your interest right now – especially since demand always seems to exceed supply when Apple pops a new iPhone.
There are also reports this year that supplies could be even more limited than usual, which isn’t unlikely given that Apple is about to drop a grand total of three new iPhones before the end of the year.
Some industry experts have also claimed that Apple is suffering a shortage of OLED panels, which are tipped to sit in place of the old LCD screen.
Add that to the fact that mass production of the iPhone 7S apparently won’t begin until October or November, and you might have a bit of a waiting game on your hands after the big reveal – which is expected to be some time in September.
How much will iPhone 7S deals cost?
Apple hasn’t announcing any pricing for the iPhone 7S yet, and we’re not expecting to hear a number until the grand unveiling.
However, there’s been a whisper from industry insiders that the handset won’t cost less than $700 (around £550) in the US.
Considering each new iPhone always costs a little more than the last, we reckon you can expect to pay between £599 (the cost of the iPhone 7) and £700. So, £650 for the iPhone 7S is probably a reasonable bet.
So what else can you expect from Apple’s upcoming handset?
Well, the rumoured elimination of the Home button has sparked speculation that Apple might throw in an under-screen fingerprint sensor.
There’s also talk of a dual-camera setup, as well as a bigger 5.8-inch screen which would replace Apple’s standard 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch variants.

We might also see a “True Color” screen like the one used in the iPad Pro, which uses ambient light sensors to change the colour and intensity of the screen to better match the ambient light in your surroundings.
Until Apple breaks its silence, we can’t be sure that any of the rumoured specs are true, but do stay tuned and pre-register nice and early if you want the iPhone 7S in your hand as soon as possible.
