Apple is obsessed with thinner layouts and so the company decided to make the year’s most coveted iPhone 7 the thinnest iPhone yet. A website recently spilled out that the handset will be 1mm thinner than the iPhone 6s.


Mackotakara claims that the iPhone 7 will be 6.1mm against the iPhone 6s’ 7.1mm thickness. For those who are not aware, the iPhone 7’s 6.1mm thickness is similar to the measurements of the current iPod Touch.

Apart from changes in thickness, there won’t be other alterations related to dimensions and material used for the handsets. So, how does Apple manage to make the iPhone 7 so slim? Rumors suggest that the Cupertino tech giant will forgo the 3.5mm headphone jack for cutting down its thickness. There are reports of a thinner Lightning port in the latest upcoming device, states ZDNet.

More rumors are emerging that suggest new features for the iPhone 7. Latest reports indicate that the handset will not feature dual-lens technology like its bigger 5.5-inch version. Instead, the handset will incorporate two 12MP sensors, one sporting 2-3x telephoto lens, and another featuring optical image stabilization along with a wider view of field, reports Apple Insider.

According to previous reports, the iPhone 7 is expected to use EMI or electromagnetic interference technology to support RF or radio frequency, AP or application processor, modems and connectivity chips. These chips are believed to enhance the iPhone’s performance and minimize electromagnetic interference as triggered by the chips, states NDTV.

The most intriguing feature is that Apple might develop unhackable features that could prevent anyone from breaking into the phone’s data. Currently, the Cupertino-based company is fighting against the U.S. government investigators over security and privacy issues of the countrymen. However, the NY magistrate recently ruled out the order claiming that Apple could not be forced into breaking into anyone’s privacy. As of now, hacking into the iPhone of the San Bernardino terrorist has been ruled out.
