Apple iPhone rumored to receive major changes for 2017

Connected Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has already gone on record as saying that the Apple iPhone 7 "won't have many 'attractive selling points." Which means that Apple could be planning on skipping the mid-cycle iPhone 7s and going straight to the Apple iPhone 8 for 2017. According to a report published today, the major redesign for the device, which we would expect to see with this year's model, will instead take place in 2017.

The 2017 iPhone is rumored to have a screen that covers the entire front of the handset with Touch ID embedded inside the display. Also inside the display will be the front-facing camera and the speakers.

A recent image allegedly showing off a schematic diagram of the iPhone 7 reveals that the design and the size of the next iPhone is very similar to the size and shape of the iPhone 6s. That would seem to confirm that the big changes will be coming one year later than usual. While the iPhone 7 might end up with the same size and look as the Apple iPhone 6s, there is talk that the antenna lines found currently on the back of the device will be removed.

Besides the other changes we've mentioned above, 2017 might also see the introduction of a larger 5.8-inch Apple iPhone with curved glass and an AMOLED display. Considering that this is coming from Ming-Chi Kuo, we would have to expect that there is a good chance that we will see a higher-end iPhone model next year.

Expect a continuous argument between you and mxy. You come up with a lot of good points but you need to stop replying to him when he adds nothing to the discussion to your comment, all he's going to do is make a pointless endless thread just to try and get on your nerves.

Of this, I am well aware of. But hey, Maherk is telling the truth.

19. Mxyzptlk unregistered

You would think that but only because you can't say it to me directly.

Maherk is telling the truth. You're brain is never ready. There. I said it directly to you. Unlike you, I'm not a coward.

32. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Only after I confronted you and after MaHerk tried to make a joke that wasn't funny at all. Try again.

What makes you think Maherk was joking? And I always confront you directly. You're the one that's always being a coward. Tried and succeeded.

48. Mxyzptlk unregistered

No you don't. Just look at this article. You didn't confront me directly until after I called you out. You didn't.

I confronted directly when challenged, which is far more than I can say for you. Just look at this article for proof: http://www.phonearena.com/news/Video-speed-test-compares-all-Apple-iPhone-models_id80919/comments I did. Stop being salty because I did.

71. Mxyzptlk unregistered

No you didn't. Again, you only did so after I called you out on it. You stop being so salty.

I already said I confronted you directly when challenged. For an idiot against "no, you" responses, that was a great "no, you" response you just typed.

88. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Yeah, you can "say" all you want. Doing so is another story. Maybe if you would stop stealing my responses, I wouldn't have to use a generic response. #Roasted

But I did it. Unlike you, in the article I previously linked. Maybe you should quit now, and live to fight another day. I'm destroying you in this thread, once again. #YoureDone

103. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Lol is that what you think? Are you destroying me? I suppose you do need those troll tokens because this is all you have. So if "destroying me" on a tech blog as an anonymous user is supposed to give your life meaning, then yeah you're the one who's "destroyed." #BackAtYou #CopyingAgain

In other words: "Meanestgenius has owned me yet again. So much so, that I've resorted to this rambling nonsense." #There #IFixedYourLamePostForYou #YoureDone

In other words: "Mxy has exposed me with the cold, blunt truth and now I'm deflecting." #Exposed #CopyCat #MxyOwnedMeanest

You're completely delusional. I've absolutely slaughtered you in this thread, and now you're the one that's deflecting. #YoureDelusional #YouWish #NowYoureCopyingMe #MeanestGeniusHasOwnedMxyOnceAgain #OhAndYoureDone

139. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Oh I'm not delusional at all. You just can't stand being wrong and it bothers you. That's why you want shut up. #TruthBomb #MxyOwnedMeanest #MeanestRoasted

Your incessant rambling is as coherent as a stray thought in that pea brain of yours. #Lame #EvenMoreLame #MxyIsTheLamestOfThemAll #MeanestGeniusHasOwnedMxyOnceAgain

Why you so stupid man? Just shut up

18. Mxyzptlk unregistered

What Xperia was trying to say was that Mxy wasn't trying to start anything and your comment was unnecessary troll bait that adds nothing to the discussion.

If that's what you got from "...when he (read: YOU) adds nothing to the discussion....", then your reading comprehension is even worse than I thought. And don't forget "pointless" (he was referring to you with that as well).

33. Mxyzptlk unregistered

No, that's what I said after fixing his post. Pointless is what I would describe this argument as.

38. meanestgenius

Posts: 21754; Member since: May 28, 2014

His post didn't need fixing. He was accurate with what he said about you. If it's pointless then why are you still responding?

47. Mxyzptlk unregistered

No he wasn't. That's why I fixed it. Because I'm making an example out of you.

51. meanestgenius

Posts: 21754; Member since: May 28, 2014

Yes he was. That's why you felt the need to "correct" it, because it was so accurate that it embarrassed you. The only "example" you're making is how to make a fool of yourself.

72. Mxyzptlk unregistered

It's funny watching you trying to catch the bandwagon train. It's about as accurate as CDMA being dead right now. If that's what you want to believe.
