IPhone 7 photos emerge on social media

IPhone 7 photos emerge on social media

NoWhereElse, a French-based technology site, on Tuesday published some images of what it claims will be the next iPhone. Some sources have described the 5.5 inch model as a separate SKU, an "iPhone 7 Pro" as it were, although whether this will come to pass is unclear. They show the rear of the new phone in a rose gold hue, with a much-larger camera lens than the current iPhone and antenna bands covering the edge of the phone, rather than across the device as with the current model.

Macotakara, a Japanese tech news website, has also reported that Apple may not include the 3.5mm headphone jack in iPhone 7 but will ship the handset with 3.5mm ear pods with lightning adapters. From the look of things, the rear camera will not increase in size, it will also have a larger bump than any of the previous two handsets in the iPhone range. Like one of the more recent leaks, this newest one is again showing off the backside of a supposed iPhone 7, so it's not giving us anything we haven't seen before. Apple is already expected to announce the iPhone 7 in September, so launching the new wearable alongside it would be a good way to garner some much-needed attention. According to MacRumors, the Smart Connector could be exclusive to the Plus variant of the upcoming iPhone. In fact, it wasn't until the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus that Apple made the jump from an 8-megapixel sensor to a 12-megapixel sensor.

Apple is expected to improve the quality of the camera for the next iPhone in many potential ways.

In the meantime, what do you think about this protruding camera?

A dual-lens camera could let iPhone users shoot better photos in low light conditions.

That being said, Apple has slowly been removing the mute switch from its iOS devices. These look similar to the Smart Connector present on the Apple iPad Pro.

Apple leaks have been far more consistent this year than ever before, which many believe is a ploy to keep expectations high.

The photos, which surfaced in China and we're spotted by NoWhereElse, show both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus from multiple angles.
