Thinner iPhone 7 to feature no camera bump and stereo speakers

iPod touch Dimensions

The iPhone 7 rumors are heating up ahead of Apple's expected iPhone SE keynote on March 21st. Earlier today, the Chinese site My Drivers reported that Apple is planning to release three iPhone 7 models in the fall. The next-generation refresh will include an iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7 Pro, to fit in with Apple's rumored 9.7-inch iPad Pro and already released 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Apple is expected to announce both the iPhone SE, next-generation 9.7-inch iPad and new Apple Watch bands later this month.

The iPhone 7 will be 1mm thinner than its predecessor the iPhone 6s, according to Macotakara. The iPhone 6s is 7.1mm thin, which means if Macotakara is correct, the iPhone 7 will be 6.1mm. This prediction makes sense since the current iPod touch model is also 6.1mm.

Macotakara also noted that the iPhone 7 will lose its camera bump and will not include the standard 3.5mm headphone jack to further streamline the device. Rumors about Apple ditching the extended camera and headphone jack have been prevalent for months.

Finally, the blog added two new rumors to the rumor mill, suggesting that the iPhone 7 will feature stereo speakers and a thinner Lightning port. The stereo speakers could tie-in with the My Drivers report that Apple is gearing up to release an iPhone Pro model. The first iOS device to feature stereo speakers was the iPad Pro, and the 9.7-inch iPad Pro is rumored to also feature four speakers for improved audio.


I hope and pray that NO ONE buys the iphone 7 and that a petition nets billions of names that states something to the tune of We want a phone that allows users to use our headphones in order to accommodate our needs, and especially the needs of the disabled who can NOT afford to pay hundreds of dolllars on MacCrap Phones who nickle and dime us citizens with crap cords, crap functions and crap cost. Thanks!
