The larger iPhone 7 model (again, the same size as the iPhone 6 Plus) has some major differences over the 'regular' model, causing some analysts to speculate that Apple might ditch the 'Plus' label in favour of calling the new handset the iPhone 7 Pro:
- There's a dual camera, a technology Apple splashed $20 million for when it bought Isralei camera specialist LinX in 2015. Their technology uses complex algorithms to combine two images for a greater impression of depth, and improve image quality under low lighting. It could even be used for 3D scanning functions.
- See those three dots on the back of the phone? That's a Smart Connector, which can transfer data and power. It's currently used on the iPad Pro to attach to the Apple keyboard. It might be used for superfast charging, or connect to a host of new accessories.
- Again, there's no headphone jack, so expect to buy an adaptor or new cans.
Yes, it's only rumour and speculation - but several major 'leaks' from separate sources have started confirming each other. Either everyone is running with the same lie, or we're really looking at this year's major iPhone release.
