Spoiler: Amazon accidentally unveils iPhone 7 early


An hour before Apple was scheduled to announce its latest addition to the iPhone line on Wednesday, Amazon accidentally posted its specialized page for the iPhone 7.

The page’s appearance was first reported by Gizmodo, which noted it at 12:25 p.m. ET. Apple’s event, at which the company was expected to announce the iPhone 7, was scheduled to start at 1 p.m. ET.

The Amazon page for “everything you need for the new iPhone 7” showed links for Bluetooth headphones, which appeared to confirm rumors that the iPhone 7 will not have an earbud jack, and photos of what appeared to be two back-facing cameras.

Apple is holding its media event at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. Citing “leaks,” many people have speculated that the iPhone 7 will take center stage at the event, along with a possible look at a new Apple Watch. The event will also be livestreamed on Apple’s website.
