Apple’s iPhone 7 appears to have entered mass production, after a worker at its manufacturing partner Foxconn posted a picture of the forthcoming phone's camera modules on social media.
The picture, apparently taken inside Foxconn’s staff canteen, shows a package containing a number of camera units, marked up with serial numbers and other identifiers.
While the staff member claims that ‘mass production has started’ in a tweet posted alongside the image, it’s not clear whether these units are destined for the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus.
Recent conjecture suggested the smaller iPhone 7 would feature a single lens camera, which these components appear to be.
If the image turns out to be the real thing, it could well land the Foxconn worker in trouble.
Despite the fact that Apple appears to have been leaking information about its new smartphone to major US news outlets, it still guards its components with secrecy.
The iPhone 7 is due to launch in September.
The handset is said to have a similar design to the current iPhone 6s, while controversially ditching the 3.5mm headphone jack.
