New diagrams of the upcoming Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have surfaced once again. This time it shows measurements and ports of the upcoming flagship smartphones from Apple. According to the schematics, it looks like the new iPhones will be 1 mm thicker than the current iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Hence, it could mean a bigger battery, but there in no confirmation on this and it’s just mere speculation at this point of time.
However, the Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus (or Pro) will have similar width and height when compared to their predecessors. As reported previously, the iPhone 7 will come with a single sensor (larger than previous gen) at the back whereas the iPhone 7 Plus will have a dual camera setup.
Also, the iPhone 7 Plus diagram shows a Smart Connector port at the rear. It might be there since Apple would like the iPad Pro users who have purchased the Smart Keyboard to be able to use it with the iPhone 7 Plus as well.
Previously, we have seen the iPhone 7 rendered images based on confirmed schematics and thus know about the look of the device. If we summarize all the new iPhone rumours so far, it looks like Apple has decided to drop the traditional 3.5 mm audio jack, hence the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus (or Pro) will not come with the 3.5 mm audio jack and might feature a Smart Connector. Also, it might be officially ‘waterproof’ and sport a new ‘touch’ home button. The most hated antenna lines on the back will apparently disappear as well and will get redesigned for a more streamlined look.
The most important change which is not much talked about till now could be the change in the naming scheme. Apple might do away with the ‘number’ and simply call it the ‘All new iPhone’ whereas the ‘Plus’ lineup might become ‘iPhone Pro’. We will get more information about this in the upcoming months. These new iPhones are expected to launch in September 2016.
