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 techradar.com and stuff.tv have helped guide our beliefs as follows:
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?
-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!
