New Video Shows Alleged iPhone 7 With No Headphone Jack

Adding to an ever-growing set of part leaks, a video uploaded on Thursday allegedly shows the rear casings of two iPhone 7 units.

The new casings, which were originally posted on Weibo and highlighted by TechTastic, show the silver and space gray units. Both units included expected changes such as relocated antenna bands and a larger camera lens opening with their edges extruded from the shell itself, rather than fitted with a metal ring like the iPhone 6s.

At the bottom of each shell are twin speaker ports, supporting the rumour that Apple is abandoning the 3.5mm headphone jack in favour of the Lightning port and Bluetooth audio.

If the casings are authentic, they also support the rumour that Apple is sticking to the current shade of space gray, instead of turning to a darker shade.

Apple’s iPhone 7 is expected to launch in September with an all new A10 processor, an improved camera,  a base storage configuration of 32GB, and a 1960mAh battery, which is 14 percent larger than the battery in the iPhone 6s.

    If this is true I think this could be the beginning of the end of the “must have” factor of new iPhones. Nothing compelling to upgrade for. Apple probably knew this too when they launched their iPhone subscription annual upgrade model.

    Honestly, I think the “must have” factor has long been replaced by “is there a need to upgrade”. And that goes for most devices, not just the iPhone.

    No big surprise as far as few upgrade factors seeing as tho the 10th Anniversary beast is coming out next year. Still a nice phone for anyone who has never owned an iphone. Seems like Sammys the leader now with Apple playin catch up every year. Iphones are more fasion statement. The S7 next years S8 and the new Note7 coming in Aug will be crown jewels. Im sure the 10th Anniversary iphone will be pretty sweet….decisions…decisions
