Latest rumor about the Apple iPhone 7 says it supports dual SIM cards, and sports a headphone jack
Last week, we told you that some Foxconn employees reportedly posted on Weibo that the Apple iPhone 7 Plus will not feature a rear-facing dual cameras setup because of "technical difficulties." One of the camera modules was supposed to offer users optical zooming. Even connected Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo thought that a second camera might be coming to the 5.5-inch model. The good news for iPhone fans is that this rumor has been put back into play by others claiming that talk of the death of the dual camera setup was false.

Today, one of the earliest rumors we heard about the Apple iPhone 7 is being seriously challenged. The next iteration of the iPhone was supposedly coming to market without an earphone jack. Last month a manufacturer out of China displayed adapters that turn the Lightning port into a 3.5mm jack for heaphones. But today, a smartphone repair company known as Rock Fix, located in China, posted images of what is supposedly the Lightning cable accessory for the iPhone 7. The component still includes a headphone jack.

Other images served up by Rock Fix include a picture of what is said to be the iPhone's first dual SIM trays, a SanDisk 256GB memory chip, and a dual-camera module for the on-again rumor about the Apple iPhone 7 Plus. Check out the images in the slideshow at the bottom of this story.

Earlier this morning, we told you that the Apple iPhone 7 is now undergoing mass production at contract manufacturer Pegatron. Before you know it, September will be here and we will be turning our attention in earnest to the tenth-anniversary iPhone due out in 2017.
