With Apple’s iPhone 7 expected to be announced during the month of September, the smartphone’s case has apparently been leaked. The upcoming device strongly resembles an iPhone 6s, but there are a lot of differences that you will be very interested to know about that could either make or break your purchase.
iPhone 7 Case Leak Does Not Show A Headphone Jack – Is Apple Really Omitting This Feature From The Upcoming Smartphone?
In terms of pure aesthetics, Apple’s upcoming iPhone 7 looks very similar to Apple’s iPhone 6 and even an iPhone 6s with curved corners and a flat back. However, the following details is something that you probably did not notice; the absence of a 3.5 mm headphone jack cutout, which brings us back to the old rumor, is Apple really serious about omitting the crucial feature from the smartphone. The feature has been present for a very long time and if Apple replaces it with a Bluetooth or Lightning port based headphones, it will allow the tech giant to further reduce the overall thickness of iPhone 7.
It could also mean that the company will have ample space for other components since the entire circuit will be absent from the entire configuration. If you take a look at the image below, you will clearly be able to see those large speaker grill cutouts present at the bottom side of the case, indicating that Apple is also intending on improving the overall sound quality. Even if you manage to block out one speaker grill with your fingers while playing a game, you will still be able to hear sufficient sound levels from the other grill.

In a previous post, we stated that Apple’s upcoming iPhone 7 Plus was reported to come with 256GB of internal storage as its highest capacity model, along with a 3,100mAh battery, suggesting that iPhones coming in 2017 and 2018 will have even larger capacities.
Additionally, a dual-camera interface suggests that the Cupertino tech company will also be welcoming dual-camera setups inside future devices. We are not certain about the total megapixel count of the upcoming iPhone, so we will stick to our gut and believe that the sensor will retain the same number of megapixels (12.3MP) as the current generation iPhones, but will add more features courtesy of the updated software from Apple.
