Apple iPhone 7s and 7s Plus dimensions leak may be bad news for current case owners
It is understandable that the vast majority of leaks and rumors so far have been focused on the shiny new iPhone 8 concept, but some news are slowly starting to trickle down about the eventual iPhone 7s and 7s Plus, too. Apple should be unveiling three handsets - one unorthodox iPhone 8 to hint at where the phone maker is going, and two more legacy-oriented upgrades that are meant to satisfy those used to the current hardware paradigm.

Today's portion of iPhone 7s rumors corroborates previous speculation that it will be slightly thicker than the iPhone 7, mostly because the new edition should have a glass, instead of aluminum, chassis. We've heard that all new iPhones should arrive with glass housing, aimed to facilitate wireless charging, and now there is a "trusted and reliable source" who has disclosed the exact dimensions of the new 7s and 7s Plus, claiming that they will be slightly less compact than their predecessors.

The iPhone 7s will eventually clock in at 138.44 mm x 67.26 mm x 7.21 mm, so it will be thicker than the iPhone 7 at 7.1 mm, while the iPhone 7s Plus is said to come at 158.37 mm x 78.1 mm x 7.41 mm, against the current iPhone 7 Plus 7.3mm thickness. The difference in size is pretty negligible in terms of width and height, so the current cases might fit with a bit of stretching, but the increased thickness of the glass chassis might be a problem, yet we won't know for sure before Apple hits the stage come September 12th.
