iPhone 7 images based on 3D blueprints pop up, show little change
We may still be some time removed from Apple's annual September event when the Cupertino maker traditionally unveils its new iPhone, but you can be sure that somewhere in China, production has either already begun, or is about to. As we've previously seen, alleged technical 3D models of the iPhone 7 are already in supply, allowing third-parties to make use of them. In this case, a 'reputable' accessories maker close to our colleagues at GSMArena has provided.

As can be plainly seen, and in corroboration with some rumors, the iPhone 7 rendered here is very familiar. The most notable difference is the removal of the controversial antenna bands on the back, lending the phone a rather... peculiar look. This might be just us being used to the iPhone 6/6s look, but we can't help it. 

Other changes include a dual grill on the bottom, which we haven't seen in a while (it used to house the microphone on the iPhone 5 and 5s) and the seeming lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack. The former may suggest stereo speakers, but it could obviously also be an effort at symmetry. As for the latter, regulars probably won't be hearing for the first time that Apple might be dropping the jack in favor of its Lightning port. 

Obviously, all of the above is based on renders whose authenticity we simply have no way of verifying. In fact, Steve Hammerstoffer, also know by his Twitter alias @OnLeaks, has already taken up to the micro-blogging service to question their legitimacy. According to the popular leakster, these are based on "old" CAD drawings that are unlikely to be accurate.

Thankfully, given the typical interest in Apple's next iPhone, we're likely to be seeing more and more intel and photos like these trickle down as we get closer to September, so we should know more soon.
