Everyone was expecting the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus to come with a new design to the market, but hopes were crushed during D-day. Now, as news of iPhone 7 are already doing the rounds, speculations and rumors have once again taken the tech industry by storm.


This time, the source is none other than Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray. He believes that the new iPhone is going through some radical design changes and will be launched with a complete make-over. As per the news, here is what to expect from the upcoming iPhone 7 in terms of design.

Aren’t we already bored of those same white, grey iPhone skins? Apple has added rose gold color to its new line of phones, but still, it was not a major change as Apple Watch already has that color. Sapphire display sounds interesting and would really give iPhone 7 a new look. The only problems with ditching glass and switching to sapphire are its cost and fragility. Does that mean iPhone 7 would be the most expensive phone ever? It can be.

No home button

With Apple focusing more on the 3D Touch feature, it may not feel the need to give the home button a little space on the device. This may mean an increased or a reduced screen size. As we know how stingy Apple is when it comes to screen size, we can only hope that ditching the home button won’t make them go back to 4-inch screens. Without the home button, Touch ID might get transferred to the side of the phone. Only time will tell if Apple will make a wise decision or not.

Long-lasting battery

iPhone 6S Plus gives you a battery that lasts up to 24 hours on 3G. iPhone 7 might give you a battery that lasts double than this. With Samsung already working on a battery that can last up to 5 days, 48 hours isn’t good news.

Even though Apple’s design change is refreshing news for iPhone lovers, many things Apple does are always experimented on by other brands. Some experiments have been successful while others have failed. Now it is time to see how gracefully Apple carries out these experiments, and if the brand manages to impress customers without repeating the history of iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus’ problems.
