Apple is finally set to unveil something new on September 7. While the company hasn’t said what it will be, it’s pretty much certain a new iPhone or two will make an appearance at the invite-only San Francisco event.
The Apple rumor mill has been churning out juicy details about the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus for months and, if you stare at the blurry lights on Apple’s invite, you just might pick up a few more clues about what to expect during next month’s keynote.
Apple fanboys and fangirls have been busy doing god’s work decoding the invite. The theories range from the sober and the silly (does the dark background hint at dark mode?) to the absolutely absurd (“See” means iPhone will get retina scanning).
We’ve rounded up some of the best interpretations of the iPhone 7 invite.

@JonyIveParody Mr. Ive, what do you say to the analysts comments that the press invite graphics are proof that Apple has lost its focus?
