Dummy Apple iPhone 7 unit leaks with Smart Connector, but no antenna lines
This supposedly is the rear of an Apple iPhone 7 dummy unit
At the bottom of the purported dummy unit, you will see the Smart Connector dock. Over the weekend, we told you that the latest report has Apple putting the kibosh on plans to include the magnetic docking port on its smartphone. And the camera on the dummy unit indicates that Apple is planning on using a flush design for the rear snapper, something that we have been expecting.
We also could see the iPhone 7 launch without a 3.5mm earphone jack. Apple was said to be removing the jack in order to make it easier to waterproof the phone (one less opening means one less opportunity for water to enter the inside of the device) and to allow more room for a higher capacity battery inside the device.
Earlier today, a sketch that supposedly was made of the iPhone 7, revealed that we could see fewer changes than usual to the product following the "S" year of the handset's usual two-year cycle. This would dovetail with comments made last month by connected Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who said that the iPhone 7 won't have many "attractive selling points."
