IT’S not due to be released until September but technophiles can’t keep themselves from poring over the latest iPhone 7 leaks.
The fresh leaks are some of the most detailed yet and confirm a number of suspicions held by avid Apple fans about the features the new handset will have.
Most notably, it appears as though the headphone jack will be a thing of the past for the iPhone.
It’s long been suspected to disappear from the phone in order to make way for a slimmer design, as well as push customers towards wireless headphone.
Earlier in the year, sources from inside Apple’s Chinese supply chain confirmed to Forbes that the headphone jack would be absent from the phone.
Leaked blueprints for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus were shared on Twitter by professional tech leaker OnLeaks, aka Steve Hemmerstoffer. Last year he leaked accurate images of the iPad Pro classic before it was publicly released.
Both models will apparently have the same dimensions as the current iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus currently on the market.
Judging from the leaked images, the larger model of the iPhone 7 could come with a smart connector that can transfer data and power between devices. The connector is currently used by the company to connect Apple keyboards to the iPad Pro.
Another feature that has long been rumoured and is corroborated by the leaked images is a dual-lens camera for the iPhone 7 Plus. The superior camera will allow for SLR quality photos.
According to The Verge, the move will mean the larger model will come with 3GB of RAM to handle the image-processing requirements of the new camera.
