Last month, rumours emerged that Apple plans to launch the iPhone 7 in 2017 to mark the company's 10 year anniversary, and now it has been suggested Apple will release the iPhone 6SE and iPhone 6SE Plus instead.

According to a report from German website Apfelpage, the upcoming handset will be dubbed iPhone 6SE, based on Chinese supply chain sources which claim to have seen the packaging as well as labelling showcasing the name.

As for the handset itself, iPhone users are expected to see a similar design to its predecessor, the iPhone 6S. Furthermore, the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) is backing up the rumours around the iPhone 7 and stated that this year's release will largely resemble current models, the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. 

The WSJ has made it apparent that Apple fans are ‘unlikely' to see any distinct changes this year, and instead Apple will save the major redesign for 2017. However rumours suggest that one key change will be that the handset will be without the 3.5mm audio jack.

In true form, Apple is expected to make the announcement in early September.

Apple has not commented on these rumours, therefore as always there is no way in confirming this is true.
