Rumor has it Apple's next iPhone may be waterproof

Rumor has it Apple's next iPhone may be waterproof

The iPhone 7 will be revealed at a special Apple event in San Fransisco on September 7, and will go on sale on September 16.

All of us are keeping track of iPhone 7 rumors about specifications, but we're truly curious when the device will actually hit the markets.

But newly leaked images supposedly showing the iPhone 7 display assembly suggest this won't be the case.

Popular leakster Evan Blass also mentioned in his tweet that pre-orders for the iPhone 7 would start on September 9, which makes sense if the device will be introduced on the 7.

Recent reports speculate that Apple is preparing to launch the phone on September 7, but we'll have to wait and see for now as the company is remaining typically tight-lipped on the subject. The leaked photos only show the front and back panels, with no details of the sides shown. While the news was positive, the announcement comes at a time when many analysts continue to predict declining iPhone sales, which not only affects Apple but is also having a major impact on its suppliers and third-party companies. Here is everything you should know about iPhone 8. But things changed when Apple introduced the iPad Pro and its Smart Connector that allows for advanced accessories, like Apple's new Smart Keyboard to be used with it.

Here's what to expect from Apple's iPhone segment this quarter. That would give the iPhone 7 stereo audio support, something still fairly rare in the smartphone space, not to mention a first for an Apple handset.

It has been claimed that the current home buttons of the device are switches that physically press into the phone, but the latest models will have a pressure-sensitive button that provides feedback to the user through a vibrating haptic sensation rather than an actual physical click.

Compounding matters is the fact that wireless carriers' new installment plans make upgrading your phone every year pain-free.

The iPhone 7 has been described as a very mild upgrade. In storage department also Apple has doubled down with the options of 32 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB.

No audio port means Tim Cook and co. can shave a few millimeters off the product as well, making this year's iPhone thinner than the 6S range. There's little doubt they'll sport improved cameras and faster performance, but it's best to take the rest of the rumors with a healthy pinch of salt. Fans could be choosing from three iPhone 7 versions this year.

Better battery life: I fully expect battery life to be the same for the iPhone 7 as for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6.
