iPhone 7 Update, Specs, Rumors: Double Leak Reveals Significant Design Change; To Feature Lightning-Equipped EarPods In Both Handset?
iPhone 7 is full of surprises. Apple is making sure that its flagship offerings will not be brought to naught. To strengthen iPhone 7's hold on its target market new developments and last-minute design change happen.
Apparantly, Apple will be replacing its home button with a sensitive touch surface that polishes flush with the phone. Moreover, to be able to recreate the feeling of a button, iPhone 7 must secure a haptic feedback same as Macbook's Force Touch trackpad, incidentally written by both Business Insider and 9to5Mac.
However, the circumstance for the change is building and it also embarks perfect sense by removing an obvious point of failure, which is a tactic also used by rival handsets like the HTC 10 and OnePlus 3, the transition minus any negative feedback, Forbes reported.
When the customers bite into the haptic feedback on the latest home 'button', Apple might also pave the way to go a step further with the radical iPhone 8, Forbes added. Last May, LG announced that it can create a fingerprint sensor straight into its displays that would allow Apple to get rid of the home button completely.
Featuring Lightning-Equipped EarPods In Both Handset
The images leaked from a Chinese blogging site Weibo, a trusted leaker within Apple's supply chain. Apart from a flat, the elongated Lightning connector and the headphones are the same with the EarPods bundled with the iPhone 6s, including a lined up remote.
Moreover, the gear's authenticity is quite difficult to determine. That being said, it may fall in line with hopes that Apple plans to eliminate the 3.5mm headphone jack from the iPhone 7 line which forces buyers to use between Lightning and Bluetooth for external audio, AppleInsider reported.
The use of lightning could enable higher-quality sound. But, Apple could possibly include one with innovative iPhones to ease the transition.
The iPhone 7 is allegedly to be release this fall and most probable in Apple's normal September launch window. iPhone upgrades must focus primarily on capacity, speed and camera technology. And though the superior 5.5-inch model might also comprise an iPad Pro-style Smart Connector.
