iPhone 7 To Be As Slim As An iPod Touch But That Begs The Question, Can It Retain All The Necessary Hardware?

The latest piece of information states that the upcoming iPhone 7 is going to be as slim as an iPod Touch. While, that is definitely impressive and we have no doubt that Apple will be able to make it possible, there are somethings that need to be removed from the equation in order to aid the tech giant in achieving its goal. First off, and you guys have heard this on countless number of occasions that the company plans on discarding the 3.5mm headphone jack.

Afterwards, users will have to make do with using headphones that feature a lightning port (which will actually be advantageous thanks to delivering a digital signal rather than analog) but according to two analysts, Blayne Curtis and Christopher Hemmelgarn, Apple will include a Lightning-equipped headphone with the iPhone 7, but will not purchase Cirrus’ noise-cancelling technology for in-box headphones until the iPhone 7s, which is most likely going to take place during September 2017.


We have also been hearing about Apple’s attempt to make its iPhones waterproof. With its iPhone 6s and iPhone 6ss Plus sporting a layer of rubber making them water resistant, future iPhones are expected to be completely waterproof and sport EMI shielding, so we can expect great from things iPhone 7 in this regard.

Unfortunately, we are concerned about other things revolving around the hardware components. If Apple does make its iPhone 7 extremely thin, where will it find room to accommodate for the other chips? As the latest report has it, iPhone 7 is going to be a cut above the rest, because the upcoming handset and its larger screen brother, iPhone 7 Plus are going to sport 256GB of internal storage, which is twice the amount that is present inside the tech giant’s current generation iPhones. In addition, it is also expected that iPhone 7 Plus will come with a 3,100mAh, meaning that iPhone 7 will come with a larger battery as opposed to iPhone 6s.

Let us hope that despite that thickness reduction, Apple does not make sacrifices to the overall experience of its upcoming smartphones.
