With the release of IPhone 6s and the IPhone 6s plus, rumors are already circulating about Apple’s next flagship phones which are likely to come with the same pairing like The basic and a bit advanced and larger in size plus phone.
The IPhone 7 and the IPhone 7 plus are yet to come, but talking about them on the basis of the clues by Apple Inc. would give us a lot of hints about the upcoming phones. Apple’s iPhone 7 is expected to launch in 2016, bringing a new design and new features.
IPhone 7 Features And Release Date
Side Wall Display
There are rumors about the upcoming IPhones having a brand new design feature which is the side wall or the edge feature (in Samsung galaxy note 4 and S6).
The speculation comes from an Apple patent, which was published in 2015. Apple would call it the sidewall display instead of “Edge” if the rumor is to be believed.
Touch Id Display
Another rumor which is revolving among the apple fans is about the famous Touch id or fingerprint scanner.
The touch id button which is the home button could possibly be switched from the place it has always been at, which means according to the rumor, the whole screen would play the role of a Fingerprint sensor.
Quite Convenient No ?
This also means that Apple is going to make the home button appear no longer for the users.
Reversible USB charger
Another rumor viral on the web is about a Reversible USB charger.
The new charger would be with a reversible USB connector along with the lightning connector on the other end.
Electronic SIM Card
Another rumored feature for the latest IPhone is that it will come with an Electronic SIM card which will replace the mainstream and traditional SIM cards.
Recent reports suggest that e-SIMS would be a virtual embedded equivalent of the old SIM cards which will make things simpler than before.
This means far more flexible roaming and easy switching of carriers. Imagine making a call and then switching the operators without putting a SIM card in the SIM card slot. Cool or not? Well, it is too early to answer that.
In March 2015, with the revelation of a new patent it can be guessed that Apple is going to make its IPhones waterproof.
This change was expected this year as well but Apple is maybe better late than never in this case. Another interesting thing is that instead of making it waterproof from the inside Apple will work on the electronic components on the inside and cover them with waterproof components.
