Apple reports second straight quarter of declining iPhone sales

Jul 27, 2016, 00:43

This marks the first time we've seen these components since the iPhone 7 entered mass production, but unfortunately they don't answer our question of whether or not Apple's 2016 iPhones will sport a 3D Touch home button.

On the bright side, the antenna bands on this iPhone are much subtler than the current model, tucked away along the upper and bottom edges of the phone, though still visible.

The good news is that the leak we've been waiting for is finally here.

In essence, there is nowhere the phone doesn't seem to be running into problems. In Blass' view, Apple was planning to tweak the name of the iPhone 6 like it did with respect to iPhone 6S.

As to the price, the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are expected to have the same pricing as all new iPhones: $650 for the base iPhone 7 / 6SE model and $750 for the base model of the iPhone 7 Plus / 6SE Plus. As always, the company will likely offer more storage variants for the both models with each next tier up usually costing $100 more. The unit in question is shown in rose gold, and it's also compared at length to a rose gold iPhone 6s in order to highlight the differences.

With nearly everything from the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S era being retained on the upcoming phone, one would be surprised why Apple would even call it iPhone 7.

An article on the iPhone 7 said that the handset will sport a powerful 21-megapixel lens that will produce DSLR quality images. However, a recent rumor claims that Apple may stick to just two models.

Typically, Apple remained tight-lipped on Apple Watch sales figures, but a 16 per cent decline in the firm's "other products" revenue hints that sales of the smartwatch are slowing down. The leaked device also packs a Smart Connector in back, which could support some interesting new accessories. To accommodate this new hardware, the iPhone 7 Plus could come with 3GB of RAM.

Traditionally, every year an Apple's iPhone launch event is held in September, but to date, no official announcement is made on the iPhone 7 event date.
