Three seems to be the magical number for Apple in 2017. Recent rumors have suggested that the Cupertino company plans to release three new iPad and iPhone models this year. The next-generation iPhone lineup will include a 4.7-inch model, a 5.5-inch model and a high-end 5.8-inch model, according to the DigiTimes.
With the next generation iPhone just months away, details regarding Apple's flagship smartphone are coming into focus. Previous reports have pointed to a radical new design in the works, set to make a splash at this fall's 10th anniversary of the iPhone. Apple may skip the iPhone 8 name entirely, opting for another title such as the iPhone X for its top-tier model. Two additional models that could be dubbed the iPhone 7s are also expected to launch in September.
Apple will release the first iOS 10.3 beta on January 10th, according to tipster Sonny Dickson. Little is known about the rumored update, but Dickson claims it will include a new " Theatre mode" with "popcorn-shaped Control Center icon." Dickson, who is known for his accurate sources, doesn't know what functions "Theatre" mode will provide, but some Apple fans have speculated it will be a new Night Shift-type option.
Three iPhone models are set to arrive later in 2017 according to a report by Mac Otakara. Apple is expected to introduce a 5-inch iPhone 7s, expanding the available size choices beyond the current iPhone and iPhone Plus. This model would fall between the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch display sizes found on the latest devices.
Many of the leaks surrounding the 10th anniversary iPhone have centered around wireless charging and changes to the display. Besides offering an AMOLED screen, Apple is expected to completely redesign the iPhone 8 with a curved display. Other reports point to the demise of the bezel and home button, with concepts showing simply an all-glass front panel. But what about the iPhone 8 camera? Reports indicate that Apple will continue to improve the camera by leaps and bounds.
