With just over six weeks remaining until Apple officially introduce the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus to the world, as it did with the current range of iPhone models last year, making the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus the two new flagship devices available. Leaked photos and rumors surrounding the next iOS hardware, starting to become clear and consistent, suggesting that Apple’s next-generation devices are just around the corner.
The design of iPhone 7 has already been debated to death, meaning the intensity and frequency of rumors pertaining to the iPhone 7 are ramping up, meaning we know exactly what to expect, but just what range of colors will be offered in? Another one to believe there removal of 3.5mm headphone jack.
The majority of the speculation and leaks are almost seeing about the iPhone 7 are all starting to agree on not only the physical design of the duos, but also the features and technical specifications that they will ship with. What we aren’t able to consider is that, whether or not Apple will ship the device with new color options that extend beyond the current four available with the iPhone 6s range.
There’s no “real” evidence to claim that Apple will deviate away from the Silver, Gold, Rose Gold and Space Gray options that are right now pushed out to consumers globally. But nevertheless, most concept renders and suggestions speaks about the Cupertino-based company could be planning on introducing a new Deep Blue option, or a potential Space Black variant that could attempt to mimic the visual appeal of the Apple Watch.
While this leaked video of iPhone 7 claiming to show possible Space Black model side-by-side with Gold and Rose Gold models. This comes directly from the ConceptsiPhone.
Admitting that the video quality is a disaster, which makes it difficult to tell whether it really is a Space Black option, or just a different, albeit darker, variant of Space Gray. Now that you have to take this one with a pinch of salt for the time being.

Next to speak about the new iPhone and its 3.5mm audio headphone connector. Deutsche Bank is the latest group to add its imaginations to the mix, issuing a research note that corroborates several previously rumored features coming in this year’s refresh.
The bank that expects, believes the 4.7-inch model will have an improved camera and optical image stabilization, while the 5.5-inch model is all set to gain a dual-lens camera and 3GB of RAM. It’s known by all, but there’s something that again surfaced into the rumor mill.
Both the models of iPhone 7, 7 Plus are also expected to have no headphone jack, a touch-sensitive home button with haptic feedback, a new darker color, “professional class” waterproofing, and improved sound, possibly by way of stereo speakers.
The most interesting point the bank’s belief is that the iPhone 7 will ship with a Lightning-to-3.5mm headphone jack dongle in the retail box, rather than Lightning-based EarPods as previously speculated.
many other aftermarket Lightning-to-3.5mm adapters are so bulky and clunky looking due to the need for a digital-to-analog converter. Currently, it remains to be seen whether Apple could create a dongle that meets its high standards of design.
To witness those all we’ll have to wait until it debuts. Apple is widely expected to announce the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in September.
Other rumored features include “a faster TSMC-made Apple A10 processor, repositioned antenna bands, faster LTE and Wi-Fi, a slightly larger battery, and a minimum 32GB of base storage. A larger 256GB model may also be available.”
