Apple will bring its next gent iPhones in two days and some of their specs have already been revealed by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, but the first reports suggesting that the 3.5mm headphone port will be removed from the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have appeared in November 2015. Since then, more and more sources have claimed that Apple will remove the headphone port and that the users will need a Lightning to 3.5mm adapter. Meanwhile, more rumors suggested that the devices will introduce new colors and a true tone display.
Users who will not want to use the adapter to plug in their headphones will use wireless AirPod headphones that will debut alongside the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. On September 2 is expected to be unveiled the Apple Watch 2 as well, which, hopefully, will offer a longer battery life.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will come in three variants of internal memories with capacities of 32 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB and they will be powered by the new A10 processor that will run at a clock speed of 2.4-2.45GHz. The 4.7-inch iPhone 7 will support 2GB of RAM, while the larger 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus will receive an extra gig RAM which is required to handle the processing for the new dual camera setup. Yes, the iPhone 7 Plus will have a 12MP dual-lens camera, while the standard iPhone 7 will settle for the regular 12MP rear camera. Also, both screens will use the True Tone technology that was introduced on the iPad Pro.
Also, the physical home button will be replaced with a 3D Touch Home button that will support Touch ID and an updated Taptic Engine. This means that when tapping the screen, you will feel a clicking sensation that’s similar to the Force Touch trackpad feature.
The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus will be made of aluminum, as usual, but they will be available in five variants of colors: Silver, Gold, Rose Gold and the new glossy Piano Black, Dark Black shades.
