Video of Apple iPhone 7 casings shows the removal of the 3.5mm earphone jack
While we still have roughly two months to go before the Apple iPhone 7 is unveiled, it is becoming increasingly clear that the device will not sport a 3.5mm headphone jack. The latest indication of this is a 6-second video discovered today on Weibo, that shows two iPhone 7 casings. When the camera shows the bottom of the casings, we see that the 3.5mm earphone jacks are not there.

Just yesterday, we showed you photos allegedly ofthe Apple EarPods that will be bundled with the new iPhone model inside the box. The images showed that instead of a 3.5mm male connector, the accessory featured a Lightning connector at the end of the cable. That would seem to confirm that Apple has removed the jack, replacing it with a second speaker grille. Apple might have decided to do this in order to make the iPhone 7 thinner, or possibly to add a higher capacity battery. Earlier today we passed along a tip from @OnLeaks, who said that the Apple iPhone 7 would sport a 1960mAh battery. That would be a 14.3% increase over the 1715mAh cell powering the Apple iPhone 6s.

Keep in mind that due to the short length of the video, the terrible quality of the imaging, and the quick movements of the person holding the casings, we really can't get a firm grip on the legitimacy of the clip. As a result, we do suggest that you take this video with a grain of salt.
