The iPhone 7S Plus is inching ever close to a release date, and a few kind retailers have already opened up pre-order pages to end the misery of waiting.
Apple’s new handset is launching alongside two other new iPhones – the iPhone 7S and the iPhone 8 – and it’s pretty much a given that it’ll be a maxed out version of the iPhone 7S.
Notable features include the retention of the Home button complete with Touch ID fingerprint scanner, which is nothing to write home about unless you know that both the iPhone 7S and 8 are said to be shedding the button.
There’s no firm release date just yet for the iPhone 7S Plus, but we’re expecting Apple to lift the lid on its full design and specs in early September, which is really soon.
That’s why we’d recommend jumping in line for the 7S Plus as the first opportunity. You can go to Mobiles.co.uk to register your interest now, which will mean you’ll be among the first to pocket the phone when it finally launches.
Another reason to sign up early is the reports flying around that supplies could be even more limited than usual, which isn’t unlikely given Apple is about to drop iPhone triplets.
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 screens in all three new iPhones. This could delay production for a good few weeks after Apple reveals its phones.

How much will iPhone 7S Plus deals cost?
Apple has kept typically silent about the pricing of its new phones, but taking into account price trends with previous iPhones, we’d expect the iPhone 7S to carry a similar price tag to the iPhone 7 Plus.
That puts the new iPhone 7S in the region of at least £719, but we’d probably tag on another £50 or so to take into account the incremental increase in price with each new iPhone release.
So what other reasons are there to snap up the iPhone 7S Plus?
Well, it’s set to be quite the looker. A recent leaked video of an alleged dummy iPhone 7S Plus handset shows a stainless steel finish on the sides, a dual-camera on the back, plus a flashy glass back.
We could 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.
Unfortunately, it’s all nothing more than hearsay until Apple actually unveils the iPhone 7S Plus in all its glory, but you can make sure you’re first in line for the good stuff by staying tuned and signing up for pre-order dibs right now.
