iPhone 7 Accidentally Appears on the Apple Website Early

By James O Malley on at

Surprise! It appears that Apple is announcing the iPhone 7 tonight, after all. And we know this thanks to a slip-up on the company's website.

Reddit user Jasper Greenham was last night browsing the accessories section of the Hong Kong Apple Store, and noticed on the menu to the left that both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus were already listed. Whoops.

Assuming this is real (it seems fairly credible to us), this would be the first confirmation from Apple that the new phones will indeed be called the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. It does raise questions though about what it means for the much-rumoured iPhone 7 Pro - a higher spec version of the Plus. Conceivably, given it will share a form factor with the Plus, it could simply not be listed. Or perhaps those rumours were wide of the mark?

We'll find out for sure from 6pm this evening. Stay tuned to Giz for all of the latest tonight. [Reddit via UberGizmo]
