Some pundits speculate that the latest version of the iPhone will just be an iteration of the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, and that the full version of the iPhone 7 will be released in 2017. It leads to notion that the next iPhones will be the most boring among the Cupertino company’s smartphones.
However, this might not happen based on Apple’s propensity for keeping the same design for two generations (like the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus) before rolling out a fully redesigned model. This is perhaps the reason why the iPhone 7 preview of Mac World theorized that the latest model will be a complete overhaul of its past two predecessors.
The tech site in fact suggests that the latest iteration of the iPhone will “bring Apple to the path of riches and glory.” With decreasing iPhone sales plateauing, Apple fans expect that the company will be going the radical route and not settle for a design that is merely a mirror image of its precursors.
There are rumors that the iPhone 7 will no longer sport the visible antenna bands that were present in the past two models. The protruding camera lens of the 6s and 6s Plus might be flattened.
Moreover, there are speculations that the newest iPhone will no longer be equipped with the 3.5 mm headphone jack, which means that the Apple’s engineers might have more room to expand its battery capacity of add a second speaker.
In the meantime, Bloomberg suggested in its preview of the iPhone 7 – or whatever the phone is eventually called later or upon its release date – that the unit will have a dual camera system on the larger iPhone and a re-engineered home button that responds to pressure with a vibrating sensation. Not boring, isn’t it?
