Apple has less than a month before it finally announces the new iPhone 7, but as usual, leaks won’t stop coming out.
We have heard talk of a missing headphone jack, a dual-lens camera, and many others, however, the latest leak to have made its way to the public is that iPhone 7 will pack an improved RAM of 3GB. This will step up from last year’s 2GB, marking one of the slight improvements that Cupertino is expected to add to the iPhone 6S successor.
Coming from an unconfirmed Weibo report via the reliable Apple leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer, the supposed iPhone 7 benchmark shows that the device has iOS 10 on board and a RAM of 3GB. While this is an expected upgrade, the fact that the leaked image shows off iPhone 9 as the model number throws further doubt to the report. But still, it would be a welcome move for Apple given that more rumors are pointing towards a device that has very few changes when it comes to the design language.
Speaking of design, the iPhone 7 will also be debuting some other needed changes on the Home button. Apparently, Bloomberg is adamant that the new phone will ditch the physical Home button in favor of a touch-capacitive design. In actual sense, hitting the Home button of the current iPhone 6S will only lead you back to the home screen and nothing more. But with this update, the button could get more uses, much like what already happens on some newer Android handsets with an all-in-one button that works as a Home and Recents/Back button as well as fingerprint scanner.
Just so as you know, none of these reports are coming from Apple. All of them are based on leaks, speculations, and rumors, so, better take them with a grain of salt. Still, keep following us for more of the same as we draw closer to the official launch date of iPhone 7 and its bigger brother iPhone 7 Plus, which some say might be called iPhone 7 Pro (or the Pro could feature as a third variant), which should happen this coming September.
