Apple’s iPhone 7 is now in production, with the company gearing up to release its latest smartphone at some point in the autumn.
Renowned tech insider Steve Hemmerstoffer used his @onleaks Twitter account to reveal the news. He says that only the 4.7–inch iPhone 7 has gone into production at Apple partner Pegatron. The 5.5–inch iPhone 7 Plus is not being made at Pegatron’s factories.
Apple’s other major partner, Foxconn, is said to be putting together the larger handset. Insiders have suggested that the larger phone will feature a dual lens camera, rather than the single lens unit found in the iPhone 7.
The news comes as a series of conflicting rumours have thrown Apple’s plans for the iPhone 7 into some doubt. One Chinese source claimed over the weekend that the iPhone 7 would be hardly any different from the iPhone 6s, shooting down claims that Apple was planning on getting rid of the standard 3.5mm headphone jack.
Apple is set to officially launch the iPhone 7 in September, at the same time as it releases its latest iOS 10 software to existing iPhone and iPad owners.
