New revolution signed by Apple? iPhone 7 and 7+ foreseen for September!

iPhone 7 7+ launching

The direction of Apple hasn’t quite been defined yet.
It's all floating rumours and suppositions. The few pieces of information that we have come across from various online websites, such as and have helped guide our beliefs as follows:

IPhone 7
What is it? Of course, it's Apple's new smartphone!
It is the successor to 2015's iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus.

When is it out? The launch is expected in September. 

What is the cost?  The cost doesn’t change drastically. That means the iPhone 7 price will be around US$649 (£539, AU$1079), but there is good news: for that money you'll allegedly get 32GB of storage instead of 16GB, winning!

What is new?
-Slimmer model: The iPhone 7 is said to be slimmer than the 7.1mm-thick iPhone 6S; Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities considers it will be reduced to between 6mm and 6.5mm. If TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company) makes the chips, as has been supposed, then some space could be saved, which might help Apple slim it down without making sacrifices in other domains. Another report claims Apple will use fan-out technology to save space and reduce the thickness of the iPhone 7. 
- The hot debate of the potential removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack is circulating. We’ll have to wait and see if Apple really does have the guts to axe such a well-established port, forcing people to snap up Bluetooth or Lightning port compatible headphones. It sounds ridiculous, but multiple sources have announced the death of the headphone jack. The report also says that a space previously monopolised by the 3.5mm jack will be used for an extra speaker grille, giving the iPhone 7 two grilles on its bottom edge. It informs that the speaker output will remain monaural rather than stereo, though, before you start planning your first iPhone 7-based disco.

-The iPhone 7 could be built to last too, as according to Mac Otakara there are a number of iPhone prototypes with "ruggedized" features, which could mean a water and dust-resistant phone is on the way. In fact, that's exactly what we'll get according to a supply chain source. Apple screen supplier, Japan Display, has come up with a new technology called Pixel Eyes» that is now in its second generation and makes it easier to use the screen while you have wet fingers. We've also now seen an Apple patent for waterproof speakers.

As for the handset itself? Expect to see the return of an all-metal body-design
Hottest leaks: Water resistance, bezel-less metal body, redesigned antennas. Cool.

-What about the colour: we could get a new colour option, with rumours suggesting Apple will add a 'Space Black' shade to the mix, likely similar to the black Apple Watch option. That's not been seen on an iPhone since 2012's iPhone 5. Another recent rumour pushed a blue variant too, with a Chinese network putting out a rather obvious hint about the new iPhone showing a blue option - but then again, the dual camera on the image is nothing like we've seen before, so it's a slightly spurious choice.

-No more camera bump or antenna bands
A design tweak rumour which will likely please many is that Apple will ditch the camera bump which has been present since the iPhone 6/6 Plus - with the firm going for a sleeker finish on the iPhone 7.
As well as being totally flat the back could also be uninterrupted, as the same report points towards the removal of the antenna bands. Ergonomic designs for the win!
