iPhone 7 (iPhone 7 Plus) Release Date
Traveling back time, we can see that since 2013 Apple has been releasing its product in the month of September. iPhone 5c and 5s were launched on 10 September(2013), iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were launched on 9th September(2014) and iPhone 6s and 6s Plus were launched on 9 September, 2015. Therefore, we are expecting Apple to maintain this tradition next year as well. However, our close observation reveals that Apple prefers launching their product on Tuesdays. So the most probable days for releasing Apple’s phone will be either 6th or 13th September, 2016. And thereafter it will be released globally by the end of the month.
On the other hand, there are also rumors that Apple is going to launch its next generation iPhones i.e. iPhone 7 and iPhone 7s in two different dates. This decision might have been taken to deal with the global competition. So we can expect iPhone 7 in coming spring and iPhone 7s in the next autumn. If these phones are not released simultaneously, then we are not expecting some major updates to be included in the two phones. However, these are mere speculations and we are not really sure about it.
Rumored iPhone 7 Specifications
We are quite sure that iPhone 7 and 7s are going to be powered by A10 processor. Every year Apple introduces this performance upgrade in their flagship products, so 2016 will be no exception to it. However, there are rumors about iPhone 7 being powered by A10 processor that will have six cores. The present processor has dual cores, and therefore the leap from two to six is highly controversial. Just in case this upgrade is being included in the next generation iPhone, then it is going to boost the performance level of the phone to a great extent. For the first time this year iPhones came with 2GB RAM and we are expecting it to continue with 2GB RAM in future course of time.
iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and iPhone 6s and 6s Plus more or less have the same design. In the s series of Apple smartphones not much design changes are being included. Next year iPhone 7 will be introduced and therefore we are expecting a total change of design and structure in the next generation iPhones. iPhone 6s and 6s Plus came with a screen size of 4.7 and 5.5 inch screen size, but we can expect Apple to increase the screen size upto 5.7 inch.
Moreover, chances are there iPhone 7 and 7s will be made with a more durable material that will ensure that the phone has a stronger built. We were expecting iPhone 6 display to be made from sapphire glass, unfortunately we didn’t get to see that. So we would be happy to see a stronger and more durable sapphire glass display in the next generation iPhone.
There are rumors that Apple is going to do away with the home button in the next generation phone. This will help in making the screen bigger in size. However, iPhone 6s Touch ID is integrated in the home button of the phone, therefore removing it would mean that the touch id needs to be moved to either side of the phone or on the screen itself. Apple has lately submitted a patent were the touch id was present in the screen of the phone, so chances of our prediction turning into reality is high.
iPhone 7 series might come with a non metal body. The possible alternatives are ceramics, plastics or liquid metal. But what it will be, we are not sure. However, we must say that the metal body iPhone 6s looks really chic and we would be happy to see a redesigning of the phone with the same metal.

Every year Apple submits thousands of patents and 2015 is no exception. Lately it has submitted a wrap around display with a curved screen. Therefore, we can expect iPhone 7 to come with a curved wraparound display.
Rumored Add On Features
After all these years, chances of iPhone 7 to be water proof are really high. Patent has been submitted and though the research is still going on but we are expecting Apple to introduce this feature from the next generation phones.
Gesture passcodes are quite popular amongst the Android users and we might expect the same in iOS platform as well. In the iOS 9 platform we have to use a 6 digit passcode which the users are not at happy to use. Gesture entry technique patent has been already submitted by Apple and gesture passcode might be integrated in iPhone 7.
In the next generation phones, SIM card is expected to be integrated within the phone and it aligns with different carriers and has the same feature as the normal SIM card. Introduction of this feature in iPhone 7 is going to make the phone far more secured.
Wireless charging unit was expected to arrive along with iPhone 6s, however it was not introduced. So we are expecting Apple to introduce wireless charging option in the next generation phone.
It goes without saying that iPhone 7 will be powered by iOS 10 and therefore it will flaunt all the new features that are being included in the next generation iOS platform.
iPhone 7 Camera
In iPhone 6s and 6s Plus Apple has introduced a major leap in the megapixel factor. The previous iPhones came with 8MP camera, the latest one comes with 12MP camera. So we are not expecting any further improvisation in this regard. However, we are expecting Apple to introduce some new technology in the latest camera that will ensure better quality images clicked with the help of this phone.
iPhone 7 Battery
There are rumors that iPhone 7’s battery will come with layered battery units so that Apple could use all the space available in the chassis and make the battery all the more powerful. Hopefully such improvisation is going to resolve all battery problems from henceforth.
Usually iPhones come with three storage options 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. But we are hopeful this time Apple will remove the 16GB variant and iPhones will be available from 32GB storage capacity and upwards. The 32GB phone should be made available at a moderate price that will encourage more consumers to invest on it.
Rumored iPhone 7 Price
As far as the price of this product is concerned, it is really difficult to speculate about this. However, previously we have seen the price of the flagship products have remained more or less the same. Therefore, we can guess that iPhone 7 will come with a price tag of $850 for 16GB, $1000 for 64GB and $1100 for 128GB.
We will keep updating our readers about more news and rumors about iPhone 7, until then keep reading!!
