iPhone 7 SIM Tray Image Shows Rubber Ring for Better Waterproofing – First Rumor Has Been Confirmed


Earlier, we reported that one user stated that the iPhone 7 SIM tray featured a rubber padding to improve the water resistance capabilities of the smartphone. Due to lack of images, we couldn’t state if the report would be fake or authentic, but a leaked image apparently shows an iPhone 7 with its SIM tray and the rubber protection added so take a look right here.

Leaked Image Shows Rubber Padding Around iPhone 7 SIM Tray – Is Recording 4K Videos at 60FPS Also True?

While the leaked image provides valuable insight to the water resistive properties of the upcoming iPhone 7, what about the other rumor that suggests that camera sensors on both iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be able to record 4K videos at 60FPS? If true, it would be another achievement for Apple, but unfortunately, without substantial proof in the form of images, we cannot confirm if this feature is going to be available or not. What we do know is that the upcoming iPhone 7 is expected to come with the IPX7 certification, which will make it more waterproof than its predecessor.

This certification will allow the phone to remain functional at a depth of 1 meter and for a duration of 30 minutes. If you recall, the Apple Watch is also IPX7 certified. The fact that iPhone 6s was not certified and iPhone 7 is gives us a clear understanding of the improvements of the upcoming smartphone. Not only this, but the improvement revolving around the hardware specifications suggest that the clock speed of the processor is going to be running at a speed of 2.40GHz, which will obviously mean that we’ll get to see a hefty level of performance.

The announcement of both iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is going to take place very soon, so we want you to stay with us throughout these announcements and you’ll get to know everything there is to know about both the devices and their respective features.
