    Does anyone know what the date is that the iPhone 7 review embargo is lifted and/or where to find that info?

    It's typically the Tuesday/Wednesday before release.

    Yeah, IIRC reviews typically go online end of business day on the Tuesday before launch and in print in Wednesday's edition -- if the publication has one.

    Traditionally if you a Trusted Reviewer thats Apple program for journalists and Youtube influencers with millions of subscribers Apple will provide the Embargo lift date as of 12Midnight Eastern.

    I usually get really antsy for reviews. But I honestly can't think of what Reviews will say that is going to be new from what we already know.

    - Its Faster
    - No headphones. Included headphones are fine.
    - Taptic Home button feels weird. You'll get used to it.
    - Better Battery
    - New speakers are louder but point different direction
    - New dual camera Faux-keh effect isn't available yet

    It seems like the most exciting product of the event is the Air Pods. It has some amazing tech inside it, but it was put in some pretty questionable housing. And outside of that then we'll see you next year when the real iPhone comes out.

    After the Presale but by the official launch.
    Production Product is already in the hand of Some reviewers.
    After a week with the phones the hands on stories will start to trickle out.

    i mean, what else is there to say? every new iphone is better by leaps and bounds than the iphone before it. unless it bursts into flames while Gruber or Walt is testing it, reviews arent going to matter.

    Why would the person ask if it was going to be 21st, a week after the release?

    Note to reviewers: the only thing we care about are:
    --how much better the cameras are in low light
    --battery life improvements
    --how bad is the fake home button

    we already know the A10 is a full two years ahead of anything on the android side, but feel free to point that out if you so desire. I promise on nobody's grave that the 5s still feels faster than anything Android puts out today.

    actually i care about the display improvements and stereo speakers too.

    and can't wait for in-depth analysis of the A10.

    Yes. The first reviews are out. The Verge, Engadget, and Mashable already have reviews up.
