See you on the 7th: Apple's iPhone event is confirmed

Mark your calendars for Sept. 7 at 10 a.m. Pacific for the unveiling of the iPhone 7.

Apple will take the wraps off the newest iPhone(s) and perhaps a second-gen Apple Watch at an event on Sept. 7 at 10 a.m. Pacific/1 p.m. Eastern. The venue is a standard Apple pick, San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium.

The invitation, which Apple emailed to media outlets on Monday morning, gives away absolutely nothing. “See you on the 7th,” it says. That’s it. But if history tells us anything, it’s that new iPhones are on deck next week. The invite’s colorful lights could be hinting at that incredible dual lens camera we’ve been hearing so much about, though maybe we’re just grasping there. The next-gen iPhone is also expected to ditch the headphone jack, a controversial decision if ever there was one.

We’ll also see final updates to iOS 10 and macOS Sierra, which were previewed at June’s Worldwide Developers Conference and will be released this fall.

Check out our constantly updated iPhone 7 rumor roundup to get up to speed on which rumors are credible and which are probably junk. We’ve also been hearing rumors about refreshed Apple Watch hardware for awhile, so we may see an Apple Watch 2 alongside a watchOS 3 refresher at the September event. Itsounds like the upgraded watch won’t include long-awaited cellular capabilities for a true stand-alone experience, nor will it be a dramatical overhaul in appearance.

Macworld will be on the ground at the event with all the news as it unfolds, so be sure to mark your calendar for Sept. 7 and join us for our annual iPhone live-blog. Apple will live-stream the event as usual, so you can join in as it unfolds.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
