IPhone 7 & iPhone 7 Plus

Iphone 7

iPhone 7 will banish the bump with new slimline dual camera – and lose the antenna bands of its predecessor

 

  • Design expected to be similar to 6s – but without ‘bump’ around camera
  • Larger of the expected two models will use a radical dual lens camera
  • Handset also set to ditch headphone socket and use wireless charging

The iPhone 7 body will appear very similar to the design used for the iPhone 6, apart from a slimmer camera with no ‘bulge’ and no antenna bands on the rear.

‘On the iPhone 7, the camera is said to sit flush with the rear casing, enabled by a thinner camera module.’

Apple is also developing a radical wireless charging system for the iPhone, it has been claimed.

‘The iPhone maker is looking to overcome technical barriers including loss of power over distance with a decision on implementing the technology still being assessed.

Apple has previously made a patent application for a system to use an iMac personal computer as a hub for wirelessly recharging at a distance of about 1 meter using a technique called near-field magnetic resonance.

‘Apple is working with its longtime audio chip partner Cirrus Logic to adapt the audio chipset in the iPhone to work with the Lightning port, according to our source.

Apple is also believed to be developing a more expensive pair of noise-canceling, Lightning-connected, earphones or headphones, possibly under its Beats brand, the site claims.

Apple is expected to include an adapter with the handset to use older regular 3.5mm headphones.

It is the latest in a long claims have emerged that Apple is set to kill off the headphone socket.

In order to shrink the thickness of a future handset, Apple is rumoured to be looking at ways to get rid of the standard 3.5mm headphone port.

Now, more reports suggest the yet-to-be-announced iPhone 7 will feature a single, multipurpose lightning port that will double up as a headphone port as well as charger.

There are rumoured plans to do away with the headphone jack, but now, developments for the iPhone 7 could be taking an even bigger leap – Li-Fi.

A Twitter user has revealed an image to show that the company may be testing Li-Fi technology for the iPhone 7, which would mean data transmission runs on visible light waves, instead of radio.

Li-Fi is reportedly 100 times faster than Wi-Fi, and would be significantly more secure. 

‘Li-Fi testing is already imminent. May appear in the next iPhone 7 according to iOS code in iOS 9.1 firmware.’

This new wireless system hit speeds of 224 gigabits per second in the lab, and has the potential to revolutionise internet usage.

The Li-Fi technology uses visible light between 400 and 800 terahertz (THz), and transmits messages through binary code, giving it in-lab speeds fast enough to download 18 movies of 1.5 GB each second.

The system isn’t likely to replace Wi-Fi entirely in the years to come, and ripping out the existing infrastructure isn’t feasible.
