Apple iPhone 7 cases seemingly confirm rumors
The iPhone 7 may just be Apple's worst kept secret yet if these latest leaks prove to be true. Sketches, renderings, and now casings have all found their way to the public with striking similarities between them.
According to the latest leaks from a Chinese online retailer, the iPhone 7 generation will only be a marginal update to the iPhone 6 in terms of design. It will be just slightly thinner by 1 mm and its backside will lack the horizontal stripes due to the new antenna layout inside. Otherwise, the rest of the dimensions are almost identical. Meanwhile, the iPhone 7 Plus will carry dual rear cameras as previously predicted.
Interestingly, the retailer is listing cases for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus with a ship date by the end of June. This suggests that Apple may be launching the iPhone 7 earlier than anticipated, though it could also be an error on the retailer end as well.
Major analysts have already agreed that the 2016 iPhone refresh will be a small update with the next major redesign not coming until 2017.
