Bloomberg is the latest to confirm that the iPhone 7 Plus model will ship with dual cameras. The new iPhone will feature two sensors that produce more detailed and brighter photos, according to an unnamed source who has used a prototype version of the next-generation device.
"Both sensors, which each capture color differently, simultaneously take a picture, and the device produces a single, merged photograph," said the person.
The dual cameras will also allow the iPhone 7 to perform better in low light situations. The dual cameras system will only be available on the larger 5.5-inch model, and not the basic 4.7-inch model.
Bloomberg's source also noted that both iPhone 7 models will not include a headphone jack, but they will be equipped with new pressure-sensitive Home buttons that utilize haptic feedback. 9to5Mac published a simular report in July. Quoting a source from the Japanese Apple blog Macotakara, 9to5 claims that the Home button will use haptic feedback to "simulate a click," just like Apple's Force Touch trackpad.None of the sources have mentioned how the new Home button will affect Touch ID or how a reset will be performed on the next-generation device.
The lack of a headphone jack is one of the earliest iPhone 7 rumors that has refused to die. Apple is expected to replace the headphone jack with an additional speaker. iPhone 7 owners will need to utilize Bluetooth supported headphones or connect them through the iPhone's charging port.
