Apple iPhone is one of the most coveted launches every year, with rumors and reports start pouring in well ahead of the launch of the Apple iPhone iteration planned for the year. In 2016, the Cupertino giant is expected to launch its new iPhone version, supposed to be called iPhone 7 in Q4.
The rumored iPhone 7 is believed to come with upgraded specifications and boast an array of interesting specifications. Here we ist 7 most rumored specifications of the upcoming new generation Apple iPhone:
Apple iPhone 7 is expected to get major changes in design, including a new camera set up, absence of audio jack, thinner and light body and more. As seen in the leaked images, the rear side of the phone seems to go antennae free! Apple might have limited the antennae lines on iPhone to the curvature of the case, instead of scrolling across the rear of the device. Also expected is a very flat-looking Home button that could just be a touch-sensitive pad instead of a physically clicking button (via Mobipicker).
No more 16GB!
Rumor mill has churned out that Apple would drop the 16GB model to instead offer 32GB, 64GB, and 256GB for the iPhone 7. Also, the company is expected to launch 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB for iPhone 7 Plus version. If this is not enough, the company is also believed to be prepping an iPhone 7 Pro line up.
The missing audio jack!
If the rumors are to be believed, the Apple iPhone 7 will ditch an audio jack. The absence of an audio jack is also supported by the latest report that shows the phone's machined casing.

Speaker grill placement changed:
Seems like Apple is ditching the headphone plug to instead add a speaker! As per the latest report, the audio jack on the iPhone 7 will be replaced by a second speaker grill.
Dual Camera set up:
It is believed that Apple will also launch a Pro version of the iPhone 7, which will flaunt a dual-camera set up. It is likely that you get a normal camera paired with a much larger one placed alongside on the iPhone 7 pro version. A new leaked image also shows that the rear camera set up will be slightly bumped out.
Water proofing capabilities:
It is also believed that the Apple iPhone 7 will be water and dust friendly. In fact, the expected camera bump on the phone could possibly be a measure to make the phone waterproof!
Apple iPhone 7 is expected to feature a lightning port assembly with a headphone jack built-in, to take care of charging phone, transferring data as well as working as headphone plug.
A dual-SIM variant in the making:
Speaking of connectivity options, it is also believed that the iPhone 7 will be available in a dual-SIM variant. Leaked photos highlighted dual-SIM tray for a new dual-SIM iPhone variant.
New colour variants:
Apple changed the colour scheme for the monochromatic iPhone by adding gold and then Rose gold colour variants. Now, if Japanese blog Macotara is to be believed, the company will swap the space gray color for navy blue instead.
A report on Weibo (via 9to5Mac) suggests that Apple is looking to launch a 256GB model of the iPhone 7 for a similar price as the 128GB model of the current generation iPhone 6s.
