iPhone 7 retail packaging allegedly leaks

Given that Foxconn is said to have begun shipping the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus ahead of tomorrow's announcement, it's likely we'll get a few more leaks before the grand unveiling. During the last few moments, the suspected retail box of the iPhone 7 has been shared by leakster the_malignant. Though we cannot say for sure whether it's real or fake, the device depicted atop the packaging does align with what's been rumored. 

The supposed retail box, apparently devoid of its contents, doesn't really offer much we haven't seen before regarding the next iPhone. It looks specific to the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 in Rose Gold — one of five purported colors that could be on offer this time around. The device shown on the box includes a single rear-facing camera as expected, while the iPhone 7's newly-located antenna lines also get some more airtime. 

If this is a legitimate shot of the iPhone box, then Apple appears to have made one or two adjustments. Notably, the back of the device is showcased rather than the front, as seen here on the right with last year's iPhone 6s. For Apple to present the rear side of the iPhone 7 (and presumably the iPhone 7 Plus) on the box would make a lot of sense; this perspective would shed more light on significant aesthetic changes like new color options and the iPhone 7 Plus' supposed duo camera. 

Those eagle-eyed may also have noticed that the specific model number has gone, replaced simply with 'iPhone' in bolder text. Whether it's legit packaging remains to be seen, and the leakster himself seems apprehensive. Still, with many units likely being churned out and moved around, there's only so much Apple can do to keep everything under wraps.

Looks fake. Anyway, the iPhone 7 hardware makes it a hell of a phone. But the iOS lag and limitations... though.

iOS lag? As an Android user, iOS is the most lag-free OS right now, even if less capable.

Do not think that you become automatically credible whenever you begin with "as an Android user"... http://www.gizmodo.co.uk/2016/08/apples-ios-now-fails-more-than-android/ Now, get off my back.

The iPhone 6s is the smoothest mobile phone with the least amount of lag.

The article you posted has to deal with apps crashing, not "lag or limitations" of iOS. And if you read the article you would know that it had to deal with a software update that was later fixed (fairly quick, I might add). The forum you posted was just one users' experience (and I'm sure you selected said forum link from a simple Google search in wanting to find something to back up your claims instead of a more in-depth search). And if you read on, you would find that people saw their problems fixed after another software update. All software is going to have bugs or issues with each new release. What matters is how quickly those matters are resolved and if the user experience is improved in each subsequent update. I think it's very important to point out that when Android has software issues, it takes a VERY long time for consumers to get a fix due to manufacturers and carriers taking their time getting the update to consumers. I'm an Android owner as well as an iOS owner. I am critical of both, but I have to step in when I see someone with an obvious bias behind their comments. If it was based on factual evidence instead of finding random articles and forum posts to fit your narrative then I wouldn't feel the need to even respond.

@Dr.Phil I posted that link to prove that iOS isn't flawless. But there are articles and videos on the web about lag in iOS. I just didn't feel the need to post all of them links here. In my original post, I mentioned iOS' lag, I didn't say iOS is the most laggy OS. But that fool Creep came-off saying iOS is the fastest mobile OS, as if I had implied the contrary.

No it isn't. All phones lag. You're just too much of a hater of Android to see the lag in the carp you use. IOS9 is the worse IOS firmware every with 3 revisions and 8 minor update/patches to fix stuff that wasn't broke that they broke and kept breaking 7 more times and it still isn't right. My iPad Pro is way more laggy than any of the 6 phones I have right now in my possession as you can see in my user photo. Its more laggier than my iPhone 4, 4S, S3, S4, Note 5 and Note 7. It's certainly more laggier than my SP4, but not my Tab S. That Tab S is a laggiest tablet I've ever owned. So my iPad certainly isn't the worse. Claiming iOS is smoother than Android? I guess it depends on who's phones you're comparing it to. So if we pick as device as close to IOS as possible, that would be either LG or Google's Nexus. Last I checked, people with the Nexus 5 are on the same page. All phones lag, it just depends on what you're doing. IOS keyboard is the most laggy keyboard on any operating system. It freezes, crashes and simply just wont type. I hate typing on PA with any mobile device because all the keyboards on ALL of them suck. I see what you saying, your claim is IOS is smoother. You're not denying it lags. You know? Because you knwo it does. So shut your Android trolling iOS hypocritical self-righteous pompous self-delusion self-post liking tech fan wanabe pie-hole up.

Read post #3. He's making it seem as if iOS has a lag problem, which it doesn't.

It is not free, Apple hides the lag behind the slow animations. I have noticed it on my cousin's iPhone 6. Even the slow animations could not hide the stutters while moving between homescreens.

You must be kidding me, I use both S7 edge (Canadian version with minimum boat ware) and iPhone 6S. S7 edge lags more over time because of lack of App optimization.
