In recent months, we’ve learned a lot of circumstantial things about the next iPhone. So much, we think Apple should really consider firing their security team. It seems as though half of the internet today has an iPhone 7 shell, one might speculate Apple allows these leaks to happen on purpose, maybe for extra publicitybut iPhone leaks are everywhere, and here’s what we know so far.
it was long rumored that Apple would be releasing three iPhone models this September: the iPhone7, 7 Plus and 7 pro. We however don’t think this is going to happen. Apple is very likely to stick to the expected two: the 7 and the 7 plus.
This one, we are absolutely certain of, it’s been leaked way too many times.
Both iPhone models will feature a raised camera edge, a larger camera on the iPhone 7 and a dual lens (yes you heard that right) on the iPhone 7 plus. Unlike the horizontal antenna bands found on the previous iPhone models, the antenna bands on the iPhone 7 and 7plus will wrap around the top and button of the phone, giving it a cleaner appearance. The headphone jack will be gone, and a smart connector is rumored to happen on the iPhone 7 plus; they would look just like they do on the iPad pro. This would open up the door to a world of potential features and third party accessories, maybe even wireless charging and what not.
The display resolution isn’t rumored to go up, however Apple may go ahead to increase the color gamut to p3 spec, such as they have on the iMacs and the new iPad Pro.
Both cameras will feature new improvements, but in different ways. The iPhone 7 will feature a larger sensor, optimal image stabilization, and have larger pixels so it will probably do better in low light. However, Apple isn’t likely to increase the mega pixel count. The 7 plus will feature a dual lens camera with many added benefits, such as optical zoom, better low light capability, and better focus. The raised edge on both cameras also appears slightly more noticeable than the one of the iPhone 6s and 6s plus.
Head phone jack
Yes people, the headphone jack is gone, and you’re going to have to deal with it!
For months now, rumours have swirled in about the lack of headphone jack on the iPhone 7. Wired headphones will connect to the iphone using its lighting port, and Bluetooth headphones will connect wirelessly. This means that lightning earpods are well underway, and other proprietary products will follow suit.However, sources confirm there would be a 3.5mm lightning adaptor shipping right out of the box.
The Apple A10 chip will definitely come to the iPhone 7. According to geek bench results, it will be on par with the A9X chip found on the latest iPad. The IPhone 7 chip is going to focus on power and efficiency. This means more battery life and improved speed for you.
The battery will be getting bigger. 14% to be exact, from a 1715mAh model, on the iPhone6 to a 1960mAh model on the iPhone 7.
Apple will be ditching the 16GB in favor of a 32GB base model.
We might actually know the exact release date for the iPhone 7. To be this exact is a little unusual. We usually don’t know when, but @evleaks on twitter, is claiming to know the exact date. @evleaks is very prominent and reliable veteran, he’s been leaking news like these form many companies for years and years, and he’s saying it’s going to happen on the week of September 12. September 16th to be exact.
Just to clarify, this refers to the retail release, not the launch event. To be even more specific, it should happen on Friday, Sept. 16th.— Evan Blass (@evleaks) July 23, 2016
