Apple’s fall event 2017 could be held on Tuesday, Sept. 12, according to French website Mac4Ever. If correct, we can probably expect to see press invitations go out in the coming days.

The site notes mobile operators like SFR, Orange, and others have been alerted to Apple’s plans so they can prepare. Previously, it looked like Apple’s fall event would be held soon after the U.S. Labor Day holiday, which is Monday, Sept. 4. Regardless, Sept. 12 isn’t that late.

Last year, Apple held the company’s iPhone 7 event on Sept. 7. A year before, the iPhone 6s was announced on Sept. 9.

Assuming Sept. 12 is the correct date, 2017 iPhone shipments could begin as early as Friday, Sept. 22.

Apple’s expected to announce three new handsets this year, including the 5.8-inch iPhone 8, 4.7-inch “iPhone 7s,” and 5.5-inch “iPhone 7s Plus.” Additionally, the company could use the press event to announce the fifth-generation Apple TV and third-generation Apple Watch.
