According to some recently published reports, Apple will release two versions of the iPhone 7 this year. There will be the 4.7-inch Apple iPhone 7 and the 5.5-inch Apple iPhone 7 Plus. The rumored third model, the Apple iPhone 7 Pro, is out. According to reliable sources who spoke with Mac Otakara, Apple devised the latter model just in case it had problems manufacturing enough dual lens cameras. In that scenario, the iPhone 7 Plus would have featured a single lens camera with the dual lens seen on a limited edition iPhone 7 Pro handset.
Since Apple seems to have no problems with the production of the dual lens camera, there is no need for the iPhone Pro. Thus, that model is out, and it will be the iPhone 7 Plus that will feature the dual lens camera. The second lens will reportedly offer optical zooming.
According to the same sources, Apple toyed with the idea of using a name like the Apple iPhone 6SE in order to keep the iPhone 7 name for next year's 10th anniversary model. Instead, it decided not to use an "S" name for two-years in a row. To give credit where it is due, tipster Evan Blass called for two new 2016 iPhone models back in July. He said that Apple would release the iPhone 7 (with the code name Sonora) and the iPhone 7 Plus (Dos Palos) this year.
The reliable sources cited by Mac Otakara added that we will see only minor changes this year such as the A10 chipset, the removal of the 3.5mm earphone jack and a new capacitive home button. Electromagnetics will allow the user to feel the sensation of a button clicking.
We expect to see the new iPhone 7 models unveiled on September 7th with pre-orders starting two days later, The phones could be released on September 23rd.
