Apple launching the iPhone on Sept. 7? Maybe not. (Justin Sullivan/GETTY IMAGES)

Dalrymple — who’s well-known for his good Apple sources — said that while the date fits in with past Apple events, his sources say Apple will not have an event or launch the next iPhone on Sept. 7.

Dalrymple didn’t put the kibosh on a September launch altogether, however, saying that it is widely expected that Apple will use its September event to launch the next iPhone.
