author photo 8.4.16
Soon the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S released, We have about six more months of iPhone 7 rumors to deal with until Apple CEO Tim Cook takes the stage to show off the newest and greatest smartphone. Yes, that is a long time. But there are so many rumors swirling about what Apple is working on that we decided to put them all in one place and assess whether they seem legit or absurd. Enjoying the feel of that sparkly new rose gold iPhone 6S in your hand, and the joy of 3D Touch? Well, we don’t want to spoil that, but Apple’s already working on the iPhone 7, and rumors about it are beginning to heat up. Here’s what we think we know about Apple’s next major smartphone release so far.

What would you want to know in the iPhone 7?

The rumor: Here it is: a leaked iPhone 7 case... allegedly! 9to5Mac reported the leaked images as first posted on the @OnLeaks Twitter account. The leaks seem to corroborate a few other rumors about the iPhone 7. For example, the case has not slot for a 3.5mm audio jack, signaling that Apple might be pushing for only Bluetooth and Lightning-connected headphones. The case also has two equally sized speaker grills on each side of the Lightning port slot, confirming that the iPhone 7 will be the first to sport two speakers for stereo sound. Other than that, the purported case points to an iPhone 7 hardware design that’s nearly identical to the iPhone 6s.
Plausible? The larger design of the iPhone 6 and 6s lines have proven very successful for Apple, so we can see why the company would want to play it safe design-wise with the iPhone 7. But this similar design may not offer enough reasons to upgrade as we’ve seen with previous numbered upgrades. We’re hoping that Apple has more hardware tricks up its sleeve for the iPhone 7. 

How does the dual-lens camera work?

The rumor: We previously reported on the rumor that Apple is looking to bring a dual-lens camera to forthcoming iOS devices. Based on LinX camera technology that Apple acquired last year, the dual-lens incorporates a wide-angle lens and a telephoto lens. According to MacRumors, a recent Apple patent shows for a a split-screen viewfinder where users can see the full image in the wide-angle lens and zoom in with the telephoto lens. The camera will be able to take two separate pics, or use one of the lenses to shoot video and the other to take stills. More impressively, the camera could also implement LinX’s technology to stitch it all together into one really crisp image.
Plausible? The race for bringing DSLR-quality cameras into smartphones is on. Samsung’s recently-unveiled Galaxy S7 garnered rave reviews for its use of Duo Pixel Technology to take photos. Apple may be feeling the heat to create an equally-stunning photo experience to the iPhone 7. If the dual-lens technology as outlined in this patent comes to fruition, it would help the iPhone regain its reputation as the best camera phone on the market. 

How thin will the iPhone 7 be?

The rumor: Macotakara reported this week that the iPhone 7 will be 6.1mm thick. That’s one whole millimeter thinner than the current iPhone 6s, which measures 7.1mm. This new thinner model will be accompanied by a flush rear camera (so not protruding) for a design that’s sleeker overall.
Plausible? If this rumor is true, Apple seems to be under the impression that thinner is better. Apple has already made a device that measures just 6.1mm: the iPod touch. So it makes sense that the company would want to try to make the newest iPhone be just as thin. Hopefully, the iPhone 7 won’t be affected by any “Bendgate” issues because of this thinner design. 

Will the thinner Lightning port mean I have to get new cables?

The rumor: In addition to getting rid of the 3.5mm headphone jack to achieve this new thinness, the iPhone 7 is rumored to integrate a thinner Lightning port. This will not affect the actual Lighting cables, however, so you won’t have to get all new connectors for the iPhone 7. What Apple is doing is simply making the cutout around the port smaller, so it should only affect case-makers, according to 9to5Mac.
Plausible? If Apple is already going insofar as to removing the headphone jack, which has already sparked plenty of controversy, then a slight redesign of the Lightning port doesn’t seem like a big deal. Especially if our current Lightning connectors will still be able to hook up to it.

A second speaker for stereo sound?

The rumor: Macotakara (via 9to5Mac) also reported that the iPhone 7 will have a second speaker, providing stereo sound. This would make it the first iPhone to do so, as all previous models only have a single mono speaker.
Plausible? As iPhone screens have gotten bigger, they’ve become more like entertainment devices, used to stream movies and play games. It makes sense that Apple would want to boost the sound quality of the iPhone 7 in order to catch up to the display specs that have only gotten better with each upgrade.

Any differences between the 7 and 7 Plus?

The rumor: The iPhone 7 Plus will have a better camera, to the chagrin of small-handed amateur photographers around the world. According to MacRumors, the 7 Plus may have a dual-lens camera with optical zoom, which means this phone will take better photos than many traditional cameras. Instead of pinching to zoom in digitally, which usually results in a terrible grainy photo, the 7 Plus camera will have an optical zoom. That’s where the second camera lens comes in: It’s essentially a zoom lens.
Plausible? Yes. The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus have most of the same features, but the larger phone has a small but key difference: optical image stabilization. That feature uses the Plus’s gyroscope and camera array to steady your photos even if your hand shakes. The 6 and 6s rely on camera software to achieve the same effect, though the resulting images aren’t quite as clear. If the 7 Plus has a dual-lens camera with optical zoom, it would be a huge differentiator—the Plus could become the phone to beat for serious photographers.

Is that unsightly camera lens bulge going away?

The rumor: Apple redesigned the 6 and 6s models to be thinner and lighter than ever before, but there’s one big problem: The rear-facing camera lens juts out of the body, so the phones won’t sit flat on a surface. For a company that’s all about the details, this seemed like a strange design decision. The iPhone 7 is reportedly getting a camera that sits flush against the phone, according to MacRumors, so your eyes won’t be offended any longer.
Plausible? We sure hope so. That camera protrusion had to happen for a reason, but even Apple design chief Jony Ive is not a fan.

Will the iPhone 7 get a redesign?

The rumor: Aside from a slimmer case and flat camera lens, the iPhone 7 will reportedly look similar to the 6-series, with rounded edges and an aluminum body. But Apple is expected to make a small change to the back: Begone, antenna bands.
Plausible? Apple is all about sleek design, and the antenna bands that slice across the backs of the iPhone 6, 6s, 6 Plus, and 6s Plus don’t exactly look the best—though they are necessary. The company is reportedly keeping the top and bottom edge bands, according to MacRumors. 

Is Apple really ditching the headphone jack?

The rumor: The iPhone 7 might ditch one of the few constants in consumer tech: the 3.5mm headphone jack. Why oh why would Apple do such a thing? To make the phone thin. Super thin. The phone will reportedly rely on its Lightning port to connect to wired headphones (and everything else).
Some people love the idea. Others hate it. There’s even a petition to convince Apple that people still love the headphone jack. That petition has close to 300,000 signatures.
Plausible? Time to invest in a high-quality pair of Bluetooth headphones, because all signs point to yes on this one. Reliable Apple intel sites 9to5Mac and MacRumors have published leaks that indicate Cupertino is ready to do the unthinkable, as has Fast Company. Apple is even developing wireless EarPods (under the Beats brand, of course) to debut alongside the iPhone 7, though not with the new phone like it normally does. Those EarPods are rumored to be completely wireless—as in, no wire connecting the two pods to each other. These premium earphones will reportedly support Siri and let you answer phone calls. They’ll ship with a carrying case that doubles as a charger, which is good, because these powerful pods probably won’t last that long on a single charge.

Will the iPhone 7 be waterproof?

The rumor: Making the iPhone thinner than ever and adding a DLSR-quality camera aren’t game-changing enough for Apple, apparently, so the company is reportedly working on ways to waterproof the iPhone 7. Ambitious? Yes. Possible? Definitely. Without a headphone jack to trap water, Apple could coat the iPhone with a waterproof coating and make those third-party rugged, waterproof cases obsolete.
Plausible? Actually, yes. Apple took several steps to waterproof the iPhone 6s without actually calling it waterproof, as detailed here, and word on the street from people who have accidentally submerged a 6s indicates that those techniques worked. All Apple needs is some waterproof buttons (which it’s reportedly working on), and they’re set. 

Thus is rumors about iPhone 7 and when is iPhone 7 released i will posting about Advantages of iPhone 7 and Disadvantages of iPhone 7.

Ok so the rumors of the iPhone 7 we quoted from http://www.macworld.com may be useful.
