At the bottom of the phone is a magnetic based Smart Connector like the one used to help attach the Smart Keyboard to the Apple iPad Pro. It also helps send data back and forth between the Smart Keyboard and the 12.9-inch slate. Unless Apple has some sort of Continuum-esque feature up its sleeve, the appearance of the Smart Connector is a strange one.
Now this might be the time to pull out your container of salt so that you can take this story with a grain of the stuff. Looking at the photo of the front of this alleged iPhone 7, we can see that the handset does not have a home button. Captions that accompany the photo say that Touch ID and the home button are integrated together inside the home screen. The 3.5mm headphone jack is also MIA in the photos, but we have been expecting that for some time now.
The Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus won't be introduced until September. On Tuesday, we expect to see Apple introduce the 4-inch Apple iPhone SE at an Apple media event.
