Apple is having a great run this year: the Apple Watch, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, MacBook, MacBook Pro, iPad Air 2 and the WWDC are a success all around. But fans are still wondering about one thing: what’s next for Apple? Most likely, the very next thing for Apple is the iPhone 6S, but that’s not what most are excited about, rather the upcoming iPhone 7.
The iPhone 7 release date is set for March 2016, with the iPhone 6S coming this October in three different sizes and variations. According to our sources from within the company, the iPhone 7 release date has been pushed to March alongside the new Apple Watch second edition because there will be a joint event showcasing new integration features that we haven’t seen before. Although our sources were not willing to share what kind of integration features they were hinting at, they did tell us that the next iPhone 7 will adopt a slightly different design language.
According to them, the iPhone 7 design will incorporate TouchID into the screen, instead of using a physical home button, thus maximizing screen to body ratio. They did debunk the rumor that there will be a joystick home button on the iPhone 7, but they did confirm that there will be DSLR-level photography involved with the device. They said that we should be expecting a 16 MP duo-camera with optical image stabilization on the iPhone 7 which will sport a 5.3 inch display with Retina resolution.
Take these rumors with a grain of salt, until Apple confirms the information that we’ve come across. Although these features have been rumored for quite some time, the fact that the iPhone 7 release date will coincide with the new Apple Watch is new, so we’re a bit skeptical about that. Nonetheless, at least we’re fairly sure that this October, we will be seeing the iPhone 6S being released in at least two different variants: a plastic one and a premium metal one.
