Noted tipster Evan Blass has been dropping information about release date of the upcoming iPhone every day this week, and after saying that the iPhone 2016 will hit the shelves on September 16, the tipster has now revealed the date when the smartphone is expected to go up for pre-order. According to Blass, Apple will begin pre-orders of the new iPhone on September 9. Typically, the company begins pre-orders three days after the launch event. Therefore, if this new information from Blass is true, then the earlier speculated September 5 or 6 launch event dates is rather likely. Apple's media invites should begin to roll out mid-August revealing the official launch event date.
