A newly leaked set of components has shed further light on Apple’s plans for its forthcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
Moulds for the aluminium shells of this year’s iPhone models, along with schematic drawings, have appeared on Chinese social media site Baidu, backing up rumours we’ve already heard about the cameras on each device.
The smaller, 4.7–inch iPhone 7 looks set to come with a single lens camera, albeit one larger than that found on the current iPhone 6s. The larger iPhone 7 Plus has a larger aperture for a dual lens system.
The latter has long been rumoured for inclusion on the iPhone 7 Plus, helping it stand out from the rest of the iPhone range.
Interestingly, neither mould shows space for Apple’s Smart Connector. A leaked case had pointed towards Apple including the tech found in its iPad Pro models with the next iPhone, allowing users to connect specially designed accessories.
Apple is set to launch with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in September, although it is likely that neither will mark a major upgrade on last year’s handsets.
Instead, Apple appears to be looking towards a major overhaul in 2017.
