iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus release date, specs, features rumors: Major changes expected

There is no denying the fact that the highest and fastest selling smartphone maker Apple’s next generation handset is still many moons away. Nonetheless the handset has started generating interest among the Apple fans across the world.

Though the next generation Apple handset will not arrive in the market till late next year, the speculation about the handset’s design and specifications are making rounds in tech blogs and mainstream media.

The last upgrade was a partial upgrade and this is the reason many Apple fans didn’t go for Apple iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S versions. They were not convinced that these pricey handsets were worth their hard earned money due to mere cosmetic improvement over the previous version.iphone 6s camera photo

There are many rumors doing the rounds about the next gen handset. It is being said that it will come without home button and edge to edge display. Japanese tech blog Macotakara reported that Apple is looking to remove the headphone jack of iPhone. The iPhone 7 will come with earbuds that connect through the Lightning port. It means all headphones owned currently by me would be incompatible, and completely useless, with the new phone.

In the meantime there are other reports too. It is being speculated that the exterior of iPhone 7 will be built of a material other than the usual high-grade aluminum, giving it a rugged look. Some reports claimed that the iPhone 7 will measure just 6 millimeters thick, which means that the thickness would be same as the thickness of an iPod Touch. Sources claim that multiple types of iPhone 7 models are currently being tested by Apple with specific features, one including wireless charging, which is a capability of the Apple Watch. It was not possible in the past due to iPhone’s aluminum body, but a report published in International Business Times reported that Qualcomm released a wireless charger that can work through metal.

Then there are other reports as well. On September 29, a patent was filed Apple by for “sidewall displays,” reported The Week. The report added that the “image accompanying the patent shows a phone with a screen that stretches all the way around the device.”
