You can’t deny with the fact that iPhone 7 rumors have started flowing through the market just after the release of iPhone 6S, and iPhone 6S plus. Everybody knows that iPhone has been the first choice of the gadget lovers since the launch of the very first version in the series.
iPhone has established itself so well in the market that it has created its own world and hence even single news about it or any type of rumor can shake this world in and out.
Although it is not very clearly mentioned by Apple and its sources about the features of the new iPhone 7 and the change in designs but the pacts made with other companies and talks about implementation of further new technologies in iPhones in future is a clear indication that something is being cooked inside Apple factory.
Hence you should understand this fact very clearly that iPhone 7 rumors are not just rumors, Apple may announce iPhone 7 release date very soon.
iPhone 7 rumors about its release date
Although Apple has barely launched its latest iPhone 6 and its 6s version but the market is getting hot with the rumors of iPhone 7 release date. Every year Apple keeps on adding one or sometimes even two of its model to this mega series and hence for sure Apple is going to give us something in 2016.
The reason for this is very clear by looking towards the previous release dates of various versions of iPhone. Let us take a look:
- Year 2007 – Apple iPhone
- Year 2008 – Apple iPhone 3G
- Year 2009 – Apple iPhone 3GS
- Year 2010 – Apple iPhone 4 (with change in design)
- Year 2011 – Apple iPhone 4S
- Year 2012 – Apple iPhone 5 (again with new design)
- Year 2013 – Apple iPhone 5S ( with an edge to iPhone 5)
- Year 2014 – Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus with new design
- Year 2015 – Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s plus
- Year 2016 – Apple iPhone 7 (expected to be launched)
From the list above you can easily expect the launch of all new Apple iPhone 7 as it has already made various changes to its latest version like iPhone 6, 6plus, 6S and 6S plus but during last 2 releases they have not changed the design of their product so, the new iPhone 7 which will be coming in 2016 would have new design too along with much faster processor and latest features.
iPhone 7 rumors about its specs
Rumors have no end but as we all know that the smoke is visible only if there is a fire somewhere. iPhone 7 rumors about its specs include wireless charging patent by Apple, full waterproof, six core processor, no button concept (100% touch), the next version of Apple watch along with it, and it is very possible to get a virtual keyboard in iPhone 7.
And yes, not to forget its ultra-sleek design.
The reason behind removing the only button available may be to increase the size of the screen by adding that present button space to the display or to decrease the size of iPhone 7 by keeping the screen size same as before.
It is very possible that Apple may launch its two new versions; Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 S. The reason behind this thought is very clear after looking to the release dates of its all iPhones after iPhone 3G. It has been a trend of Apple to launch a next generation iPhone after other along with its ‘S’ version with some upgraded features and increased storage capacity.
As much as you would scroll down, you would come through the various other features and future technologies, which can form the part of your most loving gadget.
Various iPhone 7 rumors in news
Many news agencies have tried to cover every story about iPhone 7. If you search google for iPhone 7 rumors then you would come to know that no stone has been left unturned other than the official announcement of this most awaited iPhone.
Reports say that Apple may dramatically change the design of its new iPhone 7 and may name it something else too. It may have Glass on Glass touch panels with 4.7 to 5.0 inches of display.
One more news leaked from Intel confirmed that its 1000+ employees are engaged in designing and manufacturing a chip in collaboration with Apple. These chips might be used by Apple in their upcoming iPhones. iPhone 7 rumors would continue to flow until and unless Apple itself makes it clear to us.
If we go as per the words of some other sources of information then they say that iPhone 7 would have a waterproof frame (non-metallic) with much more robustness and strength than before. It clearly confirms that the traditional casing of aluminium may lose its future here in any upcoming device of Apple. New frame and case would provide it a great protection from dust and water.
TSMC admitted to start producing it new A10 chip for iPhone 7 in the month of march, 2016.
In the month of September this year, one of the iPhone 7 rumors suggested that its thickness is going to be somewhere near to its latest version of iPod touch.
If Apple continues implementation of in-cell panels in iPhone 7 also then it is highly possible to decrease the thickness upto 6mm-6.1mm (almost equals to latest ipod touch) in comparison to its present thickness of 6.9mm in sixth generation iPhones.
iPhone 7 rumors about Screen Protector pop up
Dropping a device like iPhone 7 accidently on ground may cost heavily on your pocket and nobody better than Apple understands it. That’s why Apple may adopt the use of special kind of screen protectors.
These screen protectors will work in similar way as that of your life saving airbags inside your car. While falling on ground, sensors will detect the hit in advance and activate the safety pop-ups to make the landing of your device comfortable by acting as a shock-absorbers, thus you save on paying for screen damages again and again at Apple stores.
These iPhone 7 rumors about screen protector pop-up came into existence after the publication of an Apple Inc. patent application by the United Nations Patent and Trademark Office. This patent was titled as “Active Screen Protection for Electronic Devices”
Patenting a technology like this by Apple will not end up just with the release of iPhone 7. Hence, you can easily think of implementation of Screen protector pop ups in every future device of Apple, like ipads, macbooks, ipods, Apple watches and for sure in iPhones.
iPhone 7 rumors about its various sizes
What would be the best possible size of new iPhone 7? If you considered the launch of 4 different versions of iPhone 6 in the year 2015, it is highly possible that there may be various versions of iPhone 7, like: iPhone 7 with 4.7 inches of display, iPhone 7S with 5” display and iPhone 7 mini with 4 inches of display.
iPhone 7 may ditch its 16 GB version
Memory matters a lot when it comes to high end gadgets, especially in case of your mobile phone. Gone are the days when 16 GB used to be considered enough for apps and storage. But since the revolution in the production of apps for each and every, day to day activities and addiction to store your favourite videos, music, pictures, documents and even few movies during your travel, you really do need more space in your phone.
Keeping all these things in mind, and iPhone 7 rumors too, it may so happen that iPhone 7 basic version would be launched with 32 GB and 64 GB of memory and others with higher memory configuration like 128 and may be 256 GB of storage capacity.
iPhone 7 rumors about Dual Battery life
Battery is a critical issue when it comes to iPhones. Users have experienced that their batteries used to get exhausted in very minimal time of around 5 to 6 hours when running on videos or heavy battery consuming apps in initial versions. Thus Apple has recently started focussing in improving on their lives of batteries and shrinking their sizes by implementing every method possible for it.
Apple has although improved a lot on lives of batteries being used in sixth generation iPhones up to 160-170% and rumors are about further improvement and reaching the goal of doubling its present battery life.
Your opinions about iPhone 7 rumors
Being a reader and a user, your opinion matters a lot for me about iPhone 7 rumors floating in the market. Till now, there is no single official announcement about the release of iPhone 7 and every information currently available in the market is just a rumour from one or the other unofficial source and this has shaken my mind entirely, like:
what would happen when Apple will actually announce the production of iPhone 7?
Are all latest patents from Apple going to form the part of Apple’s new iPhone 7 or these technologies are patented for ipad pro 2, ipad Air 3, ipods or some other high end devices which have not yet come into existence.
We can have a healthy discussion over all these issues, but just to start over it, I would welcome your views about any of these iPhone 7 rumors about its specification, expected release date according to you and your own expectations from upcoming iPhone 7, which Apple failed to fulfill in the Sixth generation iPhones.
