There have been a lot many rumours about iPhone 7 not coming through as a major upgrade this year. And now, Wall Street Journal claims that Apple has plans to break out of its traditional pattern of giving a redesign to iPhone every year.
Although iPhone 7 is expected to consist a number of minor upgrades, a new report hints that a few of big Apple features for iPhone are still under progress and won’t be ready for integration with this year’s iPhone model.
A China-based engineer said, after a meeting with an Apple executive last month, that Apple does not have plans to give a major redesign to upcoming iPhone. According to Wall Street Journal, “The answer, one person at the meeting recalled, was that the new technology in the pipeline will take time to implement.”
There are, however, reports that the iPhone 7 will eliminate the standard 3.5mm audio jack and the lightning port would function both for the charger and the earphones. Also, it is believed that Apple would provide a Lightning to 3.5mm adapter in the box itself so as to make it convenient for the users.
A dual-lens in the iPhone 7 Plus would indeed be a welcome change for all of us in order to take DSLR-type images. WSJ claims that Apple had plans to bring in curved display in iPhone 7 but could not get completed with it in time. All in all, there would be some massive feature upgrades in next year’s iPhone marking its 10th anniversary.
