You’ve probably heard this rumors before, but the iPhone 7, which is due to launch in September could be extremely similar to the iPhone 6 Plus S, so in other words boring! According to those rumors, it will have almost the same design and functionality, in fact, the only differences that have been talked about are the repositioning of the antenna and going even further back a dual camera, but that’s been given the thumbs down recently! However, a more recent report from WSJ suggests that all of the rumors about the design are correct
iPhone 7 is going to be really Boring!
The WSJ report says that according to people who are close to the subject (it’s a leak then), Apple really is only going to make small changes with the base iPhone 7 and the other models carrying that name.
The Same Screen Sizes
Other important pieces of information in the report pertain to the screen sizes of the iPhone 7 devices. It looks as though Apple’s September releases will stick with the same screen sizes we’ve seen before. So that is 4.7-inches and 5.5-inches. What’s worrying about this latest report from WSJ is that it has been correct in the past about Apple products.
No 3.5mm Audio Jack
I read recently read, that many Apple iPhone fans were readying a petition to ask Apple to not remove the 3.5mm Audio Jack from the iPhone 7. Would Apple listen? I doubt it… Anyway if this WSJ report is accurate, it may already be too late!
iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus
Does it really matter if the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus don’t have a new and original design? Don’t user’s prefer to have new features? As it can be almost guaranteed that whatever happens with design, Apple will produce a smartphone lineup that has superior specifications to previous iPhones.
As for what those improvements will be no one knows, but I assume a faster processor will be included as well as a possible new starting storage capacity of 32Gb and maybe even a new top end capacity at 256GB.
If everything you read about these new iPhones is to be believed, then there is a good chance that they could have a dual-camera set-up. However, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has recently stated that if there is to be a dual camera included on the iPhone 7. It will be on the 5.5-inch variant the iPhone 7 Plus.
However, to make things even more confusing Kuo, recently suggested that Apple’s manufacturing partner in China was experiencing technical difficulties with the dual camera technology, and this may mean that the iPhone 7 Plus misses out on it.
The iPhone 8 will be a Game Changer
If you are an avid reader of all the current iPhone rumors, then you will not have failed to notice that there is already hype surround the iPhone 8! This iPhone, as of yet unconfirmed by Apple, should come into reality during the 10th anniversary of the iPhone. And it is that aspect of the chatter, which makes everything that is being reported about the handset that much more special.
According to the rumors, Apple is planning on making some huge design and technological changes with the 10th anniversary iPhone 8. We could see tech like, edge-to-edge super OLED siplay, with improved fingerprint technology that incorporates Ultrasound, to make physical buttons a thing of the past.
However, these are all rumors, but it seems that if you what Apple to surprise you with something innovative and special, you will have to wait until 2017!
