Just a few hours ahead of the iPhone 7 unveiling, alleged iPhone 7 boxes have leaked in Italy revealing their design. Like the iPhone 6, the leaked iPhone 7 boxes are blank at the front, with only ‘iPhone 7’ being written on their right side. It is possible that label images will be glued to the box at a later point like with the iPhone 6s packaging.

The source of the leak suggests that Apple will be launching the iPhone 7 in Italy on September 16th. The handset will be available through Apple’s retail stores as well Italian carriers TIM, 3, and Vodafone, though stock is expected to be “very limited” with the carriers.

Separate sources of iPhoneitalia also confirmed that batches of iPhone shipments have started shipping worldwide, with retail stores expected to receive the stock over the next few days to prepare for the September 16th launch.
