New report claims that Apple will call its 2017 handsets the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus

Last month, KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi Kuo said that Apple would be releasing three handsets next year, including the Apple iPhone 7s and Apple iPhone 7s Plus. In addition, there will be a special 10th anniversary edition of the phone sporting an OLED display, an all glass front and back and a Touch ID button embedded in the front screen.

A fresh report from Japan published yesterday says that Apple will release just two phones next year, the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. And to further disappoint those who were looking forward to something along the lines of the Xiaomi Mi MIX to be unveiled by Apple in 2017, next year's phones will look just like this year's models except that they will be powered by the A11 chipset. And next year's lineup will reportedly include a red version of the two iPhone models.

Of course, Apple might have deliberately spread this rumor to call off the hound dogs sniffing under every rock for clues about a so-called 10th anniversary iPhone model. Until Apple actually unveils its 2017 iPhone handsets next September, we just need to keep in mind that anything is a possibility.
