While it is said that anticipation is the best part of a surprise, it would seem that Apple’s vow of silence has turned anticipation into speculation and speculation into full-fledged hatred. Many are the rumors roaming around the internet about Apple’s new flagship. Here are the latest chit-chat and scuttlebutt over iPhone 7.
To start with, let us just say that Apple managed to set the bar pretty high this time, and not in a good way. Since the company announced that it is planning to release a new model of smartphone, everyone jumped in, throwing in their two cents about the flagship’s specs.
Most of us would agree that Apple’s newest product has to be quite special in order to dazzle all its fans. And so, with Apple’s statement, a true battle of rumors has started over the new iPhone 7.
According to the tech giant, the smartphone should hit the market somewhere in winter 2016. It seems fair enough, considering that Apple never disappointed its fans. But then, something happened, something that made all Apple fans to turn their anticipation into hatred towards the tech giant.
The first rumor floating around the web is that Apple plans to give up on the 3.55-millimeter audio jack and replace it with something else.
In terms of design, Apple’s idea of dropping the audio jack seem pretty sound, considering the fact that the tech giant sought for a very long time to make the phone waterproof. Moreover, Apple might, in fact, take advantage of this opportunity and implement some long-due chances regarding the phone’s appearance.
iPhone 7 and, of course, iPhone 7 plus can become much thinner, leaving Apple to experiment with other third-party accessories. According to certain other rumors, the new smartphone will lose in terms of the vertical bezel, due to the removal of the audio jack.
Another rumor tied to Apple’s new product is that the tech big cat is also planning on dropping the lightning port. Of course, this would mean that the boys and girls working on design are looking for alternate means of charging.
Most of the users agree that if indeed Apple is really set on losing both the audio jack and the lightning port, then this could very well pave the way to other means of charging your phone and listening to music. It may be that Apple wants to go in the head over heels into this wireless charging business.
And, regarding the audio jack, Apple can v take advantage of the wireless headphones technology. This move seems to be highly plausible due to the fact that recently, the tech giant signed a contract with Beats.

In terms of musical experiences, it would seem that Apple is testing other venues. According to the same rumors floating around over the web, it would seem that Apple wants to outfit the new smartphones with high-quality speakers, thus decreasing the user’s need to buy headphones.
But wait, there’s even more. Headphones and speakers are great, but they are still old pieces of technology even if they received some cool features over time. Rumor has it that the rumors regarding wireless headphones from Beats and HQ speakers are not entirely true and that Apple is secretly working on a way to use the phone’s internal components to reflect sound waves.
If you’ve thought that there are a lot of rumors about the lightning port and the audio jack, wait until you read about the phone’s thickness and the screen, and this one is directly from the horse’s mouth, so to say.
According to the tech giant, the new line of the phone will be much thinner than their predecessor. iPhone 7 will feature a 4.7-inch touchscreen while the 7 plus model will be outfitted with a 5.5-inch screen. It seems plausible that the screen’s lengths should increase as the phone becomes much thinner.
Moreover, it would seem that the company is secretly working on a 4-inch model, which is rumored to launch somewhere in March 2016.
The 7c model will allegedly be waterproof if the phone maker goes ahead with its decision to remove the audio jack and charging port. Furthermore, according to Chinese tech blog, the smaller model that will come out in March will feature a 16GB internal storage unit, along with a 2GB Ram. Also, the phone will be powered by a 1.642 mAh Li-Ion battery.

Rumors have it that Apple is thinking of dropping the traditional LCD display for the 7 and the 7 plus. The LCD display will be replaced by an OLED display. The displays base on the organic light emitting diode is known to enhance the picture quality while keeping the power consumption at a minimum.
This fact seems to be confirmed by a report created by a Korean-based gadget blog. According to this report, other tech giants like LG and Samsung are on the verge of cutting down a deal with Apple regarding the use of OLED technology. Moreover, LG and Samsung have pooled a whopping 12.8 billion dollars, funds which will be used to create OLED-based displays.
Moving on, it is highly likely that Apple will want to make some changes regarding firepower. This means that the tech giant is seriously thinking about swapping the available processor with a more powerful one.
According to other rumors floating around the web, it would seem that the Apple will introduce the new A10 generation processors to the new iPhone. Moving further, the new generation of processors will be crafted and delivered to Apple by the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company.
Lastly, Apple seems keen of introducing the USB-Type C connector to the new iPhone. Besides that, the tech company is experimenting with 5 other types of connector.
Rumors about the new iPhone seem to pop out of nowhere over the web. It may very well be that users are fed up with Apple’s silence and want to take matters into their own hands.
Whatever the case maybe, we look forward to seeing Apple’s newest product in action.
