Apple counting on three suppliers to deliver iPhone 7; phones to ship at the end of Q3
According to sources from the upstream supply chain, Apple has three contract manufacturers assembling the next generation of iPhone models. Pegatron and Foxconn will be responsible for production of the Apple iPhone 7, while Foxconn and Wriston will be assembling the Apple iPhone 7 Plus. Shipments of the handsets should start late in the third quarter, Wriston has been used by Apple before, namely in the production of the plastic-clad Apple iPhone 5c.

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.
