Apple is set to release a Space Black model of its forthcoming iPhone 7, not a Deep Blue version as some insiders claimed earlier this month.
Reports in Japan suggest the new shade has been designed to look similar to the black editions of the Apple Watch, as Apple attempts to differentiate a device which will have few discernible changes compared with 2015’s iPhone 6s.
Interestingly, the same sources also say that the Touch ID home button on the iPhone 7 will offer haptic feedback. That means that when users press the button they will feel a small vibration to let them know the button has registered their input.
Until now, haptic feedback has been confined to Apple’s Force Touch tech, which is found on the screen of the iPhone 6s and Apple Watch.
As rumours grow about Apple’s iPhone plans, it’s clear that any changes are likely to be minimal and noticeable only by hardcore iPhone fans.
The company is said to be plotting a major overhaul of its iPhone range next year, to tie in with the tenth anniversary of its original smartphone.
The iPhone 7 is due to hit shelves in September.
