The latest iPhone 7 leaks show what’s replacing the headphone port
Apple is coming out with a new iPhone this fall, which will most likely go on sale in September.
Many of the details of the so-called iPhone 7 are well established: It will be physically similar to the current iPhone 6S and 6S plus, but it could have an improved camera, as well a new rear design with hidden antenna lines.
Oh, and it’s going to be missing a port for plugging in headphones.
Take a look:
The photo up top is an image of the “dual-lens” camera, which could be a feature on the iPhone 7 Plus or “Pro” model.
There are a couple of things to notice in these photos, if they are authentic.
- First, these photos imply the iPhone 7 will have a camera lens that’s larger in diameter than the current shooter on the iPhone 6. That suggests the iPhone 7 camera will have superior performance in low-light and fast-moving situations.
- Second, the back shell of the iPhone 7 should look a lot cleaner than the iPhone 6 and 6S, which have antenna lines crossing its back.
- Finally, we now know what’s going to replace the headphone port on the iPhone 7: another speaker. If you’re wondering if there are additional reasons why Apple would remove a useful port, one guess is that the move is in preparation for the iPhone coming out in 2017.
In fact, the 2017 iPhone is rumored to be a much larger upgrade than the iPhone 7 – with wireless charging, a new glass body, and a bigger and better screen.
Hemmerstoffer says that mass production of the iPhone 7 has started in China, so more leaks should surface in the coming days.
Apple will announce the “iPhone 7” – or whatever it decides to call it – this September.
