Some reports, as well as leaked images of the purported iPhone 7, have revealed that the upcoming iPhone will have a striking similarity with iPhone 6s. Apart from some minor tweaks like the removal of the headphone jack, the device won’t come with significant changes.
Yet another image of iPhone 7 has surfaced online. Though there is nothing new about it, the pic showcases exactly what’s expected to arrive a bit more vividly. The slightly larger camera cut-out and repositioned antenna bands are on full display.
iPhone 7 to Have Larger Camera Cut-Out
The leaked photo doesn’t reveal anything about the connector at the bottom of the phone. Apple is believed to get rid of the headphone jack for the second speaker grille for stereo sound.
If the rumor mills prove to be true, then the Lightning connector will be used not just for charging, accessory connectivity but also for audio output. Moreover, the photo doesn’t give any indication to the news that touch-sensitive home button is on its way to arrive with the next-gen iPhone.
Various reports have gone hot and cold suggesting the physical Home button is going to be removed. Though there seems to be very little consistency about it.
Possibly, Apple is planning to bring all the exciting changes including the touch-sensitive Home button, OLED display and glass casing for the iPhone 8. 2017 would also mark the tenth anniversary of the flagship smartphone.
As per a survey released by Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, while 15% of iPhone users are all set to upgrade their device this year, 29% would consider giving the forthcoming iPhone a shot only if it stands up to their expectation.
Due to the minimal change in design and lack of new features, many analysts believe that the iPhone 7 won’t be a major hit. iPhone sales have continued to go downwards since last quarter and are not expected to change at least this year.
