Evan Blass says there will be two iPhone 7 models, not three
Despite some persistent rumors, notorious leakster Evan Blass has said that this year will see two new iPhone 7 models, not three. The two models expected to be unveiled this year, the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus, are code named "Sonora" and "Dos Palos", according to evleaks. He insinuates that there will not be a third model. Photos that were disseminated  yesterday allegedly showing images of the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7 Pro contained several red flags indicating that they were fake.

On the back of each unit was the "s" logo. This year's model is not supposed to have the "s" name. Thus, the presence of the logo on the back of what was supposedly the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7 Pro really gave away the fact that the picture was not legit. At the moment, it's not clear whether the 7 Plus model will be just a super-sized version of the 7 (as it was the case with the 6 Plus and 6s Plus), or if it'll resemble what we're seeing in the rumored 7 Pro model, which is said to carry a dual-lens camera and additional hardware connector dots on the back.

In any case, it seems fairly certain that the antenna lines on the back of both models have been moved to the top and bottom edges of the handsets. Additionally, neither device is expected to sport a 3.5mm earphone jack. We should see both models officially introduced in September.

And it may or may not rain in 45 days. Id start complaining about these lackluster articles about the stupid iPhone 7 leaks but I'm just glad I'm adblocking PA.

Lol. Was there a warning or message that I missed that will block you from commenting if you have an adblcok for their site?

The ads are huge and obnoxious anyways. If they toned down their ads to a couple of banners and remove the click bait articles then I'd still probably use it but I'd not feel as good about doing it.

And why should PA tone down the number of it's ads? PA isn't charity, this site is business, and they've got to pay the bills!

too many add equal to them been blocked so 3-4 ads seen is better than 13 blocked. smaller revenue is better than none.

Finally Someone with sensibility. This entitlement mind set is driving me nuts. You don't like PA - don't visit. I dont like android - I don't buy. Your whining isn't going to do anything - PA is a business, to them monthly bills, salaries, taxes, business licenses, hardware, software cost and upkeep, legal fees and actually make a living to pay their own house bills, mortgages, food and necessities is what determines how many ads they put up - you don't pay their bills!!! Did you send them a check for the right to govern how they run their site? No? Shame, do you even know what it costs to run a site like PA? (Not directed at you trojan_horse)

I am glad Apple decided to drop the iPhone 7 pro, because there is no reason why they couldn't put the pro extras into the 7 plus. If they did come out with a pro version. Then it how much more would Apple charge for it over the plus? Would it be another $100 on top of the plus price? In other words it would be another revenue stream to gouge their customers for the new pro name.

In order for me to comment I have to disable adblocker. Otherwise the comment box doesn't show up

That's weird. Which adblock are you using? On iOS I'm using Purify so not sure how yours works.

The adblocker I use is just called 'Adblock'. It's the most reviewed/rated adblock on chrome, that's why I went with it. I assumed it was the best?! IDK lol. Maybe I need a different one.

I use it with Safari, no issues, and best of all don't have to disable to comment.

I've noticed that the only ones complain are android and PC users. I had no idea what was happening until I used my PC to comment (rarely). I have adblocker, and I have no issues with either mobile or desktop version of the site, I didn't have to disable or enable anything - just didn't know the problem existed. but I do whitelist PA for half the times when I'm at home and have time to wait and navigate thru their ads. On weekends I actually go thru all the ads and tap on them - pa deserves at least that much. :). I was trying to keep that iOS users aren't affected by this a secret. But fra out of the bag. Even ad blocking on iOS is better.

With apples releases limited to once or twice a year - I'm really happy for the Apple leaks/articles even if they're fake. With all the android manufacturers releasing stuff weekly and all the android updates that no one gets (trolling) it's nice that they throw in a few Apple leaks no matter how redundant they are.

Its true though. If you want support after 2-3 years, you buy a Nexus device lol. Anything else, ha.

Funny, 'cause my OnePlus One is still getting updates till today and it's definitely no Nexus...

84. AlikMalix unregistered

Which version is your one plus one? Truth, please. I'm actually asking for my own interest (regarding what we talked about before). And are these official updates or something you had to get from 3rd party or something.

I have the 64 GB Sandstone Black version that came with the Cyanogen logo on the back. Now that you asked, I did some further researching and according to this post ( https://goo.gl/TVyoOr ), I actually have Version 3 of the 64GB Sandstone Black. Didn't know there were that many changes. Got one for my mum and it's Version 4 of the same device... As for the updates, they're official builds of Cyanogen OS. Latest build was COS v13.1-XNH2KAS254 and it contains the July security update.

I understand that you may only be referring to Android, but my BlackBerry Passport is two years old and is still supported, updates and all. Just sayin'.

That's awesome. Do you think Blackberry will announce much further support for BB10 next week? How about a new handset for their OS too?

59. meanestgenius

Posts: 22107; Member since: May 28, 2014

I sure hope so, but I doubt it. I believe the most they're going to announce as far as devices are concerned are the new Android handsets that are coming out. But I do believe that they will announce the new OS update for BB10 due out next month, as well.

You know Alik, if someone wanted to troll iOS, they could say that even though Apple releases updates to all iOS devices that they most definitely receive, what good is that if it's an update that breaks the phone and needs another update to fix the previous update, only to have the new update (that was supposed to fix what the last broke) break the phone again and need another update to fix that one? Wash. Rinse. Repeat. Just sayin'. ;)

Honestly, had never or know anyone who was crippled by iOS updates. Just like all the malware and updates that cripple android devices are affecting very small amount of people. MG with all fairness, android updates do come with problems to one or crew devices just as well. There have never been an android update or patch that haven't had issues. At least with iOS Apple quickly releases "another" patch vs android that many are still stuck with memory and battery issues until next update that comes once in a few month or not at all.

I never said Android OS updates don't have problems, but you have to admit, Apple has more prevalent problems with OS updates than Android. At least with Android, that can be attributed to there being a literal plethora of Android handsets out in the world. What's Apple's excuse? They have less than 10 device types running iOS at any given time. As far as security patches go, BlackBerry releases its Android security patches on-par or quicker than Nexus devices receive them, and quicker than the other Android OEM's.

Yeah I haven't seen this pattern during Steve era. Didn't think a numbers guy like cook would be great for designing and maintain a product that's so intimate to our lives. I agree. But, Apple updates quickly and as far as reports go - it affects negligible amount go people. And I believe the same for android bug reports. But it only seems that Apple has issues more frequent, because it updates more frequent and these updates hit nearly every perish who owns and iOS device. Android hits a minuscule tiny amount of people at a time so you can't catch a problem with such a small sample of devices. Yes Apple can do better QC. But under cook I've lost a little of my trust. So far I've been updating the moment I have it available - I have it set up to back up my data as I enter the house - and it will update overnight as I sleep - so I can tell you that I've had every update. Thebonlybonesthe I had an issue with was one of 8.x.x where my old iPad wouldn't rotate and at some point took forever to change the wallpaper picture. That was resolved in less than a month.

half the sales at the store i work are ios others are android. very few android complain of updates and mostly are samsung and main issue is lower battery life. ios user complain a lots more of problems they also suffer on battery life.but also various others issues. so sorry but apple as.no excuses its not like they support 20 different model.

101. AlikMalix unregistered

"very few android complain of updates" Dude very few actually get updates..... But I have verified your claims in AT&T and version stores, including bestbuy - and they ALL claim that android users bring in a lot more complaints and issues than iOS users. I urge everyone who visits any store that repairs or issues mobile device to ask for themselves in your area - pretty confident what you going to find out will refute maronruns claims.
