Apple counting on three suppliers to deliver iPhone 7; phones to ship at the end of Q329
KGI Securities Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says that there will be nothing special about the iPhone 7 that would make it a must have in terms of features. There is talk about a dual-camera setup on the rear of the iPhone 7 Plus that might include a second camera with optical zooming capabilities. The iPhone 7 will be powered by the A10 chipset and may not have an earphone jack. The device could be waterproof and have a thinner design.
With the tenth-year anniversary of the iPhone coming next year, Apple is said to working on a special re-design of the phone. In this scenario, the Apple iPhone 7s will be eliminated, replaced with an Apple iPhone 8 that would be special enough to mark the first decade of the product that TIME called the most influential gadget ever.
