Apple reportedly testing 5 different iPhone 7 prototypes

The Apple iPhone 7 is undoubtedly coming next year, and it is expected to come with changes to design, enhanced features, and new features. So what should we expect from the new iPhone? Let’s look back on what changes we’ve seen with past iPhones. The Apple iPhone 4 introduced a new design; Siri made its debut with the Apple iPhone 4S; the iPhone 5 introduced a bigger 4-inch screen; the iPhone 6 featured an all-new design and a bigger 4.7-inch screen, and the iPhone 6 Plus was Apple’s first phablet rocking a 5.5-inch screen. According to a new report, something new is coming with the iPhone 7, with Apple reportedly testing various prototypes.

5 prototypes


The new rumour comes to us courtesy of GforGames. According to the report, Apple is testing 5 different prototypes of the iPhone 7. The report adds that these changes to the iPhone 7 include a USB-Type C port with support for headsets, support for wireless charging, a fingerprint scanner integrated into the screen, multi-Force Touch, and a dual camera set-up presumably for the rear-facing camera. Lastly, Apple is said to be testing an AMOLED screen, but this isn’t expected to make its way to iPhones until 2019.

So which of these features will be seen in the upcoming iPhone 7? Sadly, it’s too early to make a calculated guess as of now, since we won’t be seeing the iPhone 7 until September of 2016 (9 months from now).

So far, previous reports have claimed that the iPhone 7 will be waterproof, if two different patents granted to Apple are to be believed. It is said to be thinner than the current iPhone 6S, with reports claiming that the device will not feature a 3.5 mm earphone jack. According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst renowned for making accurate predictions on anything Apple-related, the iPhone 7 will feature a 4.7-inch screen and 2 GB of RAM, while the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus will rock a 5.5-inch screen and 3 GB of RAM. Both will rock the new A10 chip.

Of course, since this is anything but official, take this with a pinch of salt.
