Apple is currently testing five versions of its next generation iPhone 7, as it tries to suss out exactly which features next year’s flagship device most needs.
Sources in China have told G For Games that the Cupertino company is running the rule over models that include USB–C charging, something which the company already has in its top–of–the–range MacBook.
There are also said to be plans for a new layer of the company’s 3D Touch tech, with the iPhone 7 featuring a multitouch take on the feature which debuted on this year’s iPhone 6S.
Apple is also thought to be readying wireless charging, a new set of dual cameras and even moving its fingerprint scanning Touch ID tech into the iPhone 7’s display.
Previous rumours, backed up by patent leaks, have shown Apple is at least researching the possibility of making the home button part of the iPhone’s screen, which would mark a major design departure.
The same source says Apple will change its screens from LCD to OLED, a story which has begun to gain traction in recent weeks.
However, any iPhone 7 rumours at this early stage need to be treated with caution, even if it is likely that Apple is planning a radical new look for its best–selling device.
