iPhone 7: New report appears to confirm plans

Despite being the best part of a year away from launch, Apple’s iPhone 7 has dominated the tech headlines so far in 2016.

And it appears that's not about to change any time soon, after an industry source today bolstered previous claims about the forthcoming smartphone and let slip some previously unknown information too.

According to the Apple insider cited by Fast Company, the tech giant will equip the iPhone 7 with wireless charging, making it the first in the range to offer the feature.

The Apple Watch can already be charged wirelessly, but iPhones are lagging behind flagship phones from Samsung in this department.

The source's claim is backed up by a number of assertions that have already slipped out from supply-chain sources.

He also asserts that Apple will ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack on the iPhone 7 and offer audio via its Lightning port, a rumour that's been doing the rounds for some weeks too.

However, in a fresh revelation, he also reckons the iPhone 7 will include new noise cancelling tech both within the handset and in the headphones you'll connect via the Lightning dock.

Previously we'd heard that Apple will make theiPhone 7 waterproof and is slimming down its design.

The smartphone is not expected to be revealed until September 2016, although a cheaper model, dubbed the iPhone 6c, is expected in March.
