New rumors claim no dual cameras for iPhone 7 Plus
A supposed Foxconn insider is casting doubt that the iPhone 6s Plus successor will be equipped be dual rear cameras due to technical problems.

Previous rumors were claiming that the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus would be shipping this September with two rear cameras. When combined with the 3-pin Pro connector, these two features could potentially better differentiate the iPhone 7 Plus model from the standard iPhone 7. Additionally, news from WDC this year suggests that iOS 10+ will likely support RAW image files to suggest that the company may have big camera plans for its mobile devices.

All the supposed drawings, covers, and renders showing the iPhone 7 Plus with dual rear cameras may all be false according to a post on Chinese blogging site Weibo by a Foxconn insider. The source says Apple had abandoned the plan for dual cameras some time ago due to technical problems. Foxconn is an important manufacturing partner to Apple and is likely gearing up for production of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.

Meanwhile, more reports are saying that the upcoming generation of iPhones will just be a slight upgrade from the current iPhone 6s and 6s Plus even if the dual camera feature turns out to be true. In turn, the 2017 iPhone refresh is expected to be a more revolutionary generation to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the iPhone smartphone. Such a refresh may be equipped with border-less OLED panels and wireless charging.l
