Some rumors had earlier predicted that Apple might launch iPhone 7 Pro–the third model alongside iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. However, a new report from reliable sources speaking with Japanese site, Mac Otakara has confirmed that the assumed names of upcoming iPhones to be launched next month will be “iPhone 7” and “iPhone 7 Plus.”
According to the source, Apple wants to follow the same name scheme to avoid any confusion of launching back-to-back iPhones with the “S” in the name despite the fact that the next-gen iPhone will not be a major update over the iPhone 6s.
Apple to Stick with “iPhone 7/ 7 Plus”
The report also quashes the rumor of the third model-iPhone 7 Pro- which had been rumored to arrive with the dual-lens camera. The iPhone 7 Plus was said to feature a single-lens camera.
As Apple was skeptical about the success of dual-lens, it wanted to create a third model. Now that the Cupertino-based company feels more confident, it wants to pack this feature with the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus and doesn’t intend to introduce the third-tier.
Mac Otakara asserts that 3.5mm headphone jack is on its way out. It further adds that the upcoming iPhone will come with A10 chip and a new flush, Capacitive Home Button instead of the physical switch.
Nothing could be said with absolute certainty as some reports are blowing hot and cold about the rumored features. However, the rumors do provide significant sneak-pick about what’s expected to hit the floor.
iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are expected to be unveiled at an Apple event on September 7, and the pre-orders are likely to begin two days later on September 9. However, a new report has stated that the flagship smartphone is set for a wide release on September 23.
