  • iPhone 7 Accessories Leak Out Early, Confirming No Major Design Changes

    New accessories for the iPhone 7 are already being manufactured and sold ahead of the handset’s official debut this fall. The cases and screen protectors all but confirm that the device will bring no major design changes this year.


    Pocket-lint got its hands on the accessories during the Computers Unlimited Exposed event in London. They are manufactured by established and popular cake maker Cygnett, which suggests they’re based on more than just rumors.

    Assuming they are accurate, the cases confirm Apple’s next iPhones will look identical to its last. Recent reports have warned that we won’t see big changes this year, but Apple is expected to be planning much bigger changes for the iPhone’s 10th anniversary in 2017.

    Some of the changes we are likely to see include a larger camera sensor on the iPhone 7 and dual-lens camera on the iPhone 7 Plus, as well as redesigned antenna bands that aren’t quite as easy to see from the back. We have seen some additional sensors, too.


    “The screen protector, which is designed to stick over the front of a phone to make the glass more sturdy, shows two sensor holes above the front microphone instead of one,” notes Pocket-lint. An additional sensor has also been spotted on the back of the device alongside its camera.


    Of course, we cannot confirm these accessories are accurate at this point. Cygnett claims they’re based on design specifications — not just rumors — but until Apple makes everything official this September, it’s best to just wait and see.

      Take a look at the third picture. The iPhone on the top has a circular hole towards the bottom right of the case. The the only headphone jack I can spot.

      The third picture looks like a headphone jack but not the other ones so I wasn't sure...thanks for clarifying!

      Ahh that's a microphone on the front side?!
      Does that mean I have to turn my iPhone upside down when calling?
      I've been talking to the bottom all along[emoji79]

      iPhone has at least 3 mics. I think there are 4 in 6S. Not sure. The front top is for FaceTime, speaker phone calls, bottom is for regular calls, rear top is for video recording.

      Seriously I dont know what apple is thinking not making any physical changes to the phone. I'm rocking a 6 plus and so far I hear no rumors to upgrade at all. So disappointing

      There's only two mics. The slit at the top is definitely a speaker (the one used for regular phone calls). It's very easy for you to confirm that it's a speaker by listening to it, and it wouldn't make any sense to put a mic behind the same grille as a speaker, so definitely no mic there. There's one next to the headphone jack for phone calls. The one next to the camera is for video recording and noise cancellation. This applies to at least iPhone 5 and up.

      No way to know what this new hole is for the iPhone 7, but my guess is a sensor for TrueTone display like the iPad Pro 9.7.

      I'm done and tired with this whole Apple game.. Sticking with my devices and I'm not looking to "upgrade" every single year.. tired of a little upgrade here and there... " O M G IT STILL HAS THE HEADPHONE JACK!!!!" ....... I mean, ****... There are much more important things to deal with in life than trying to get hands on yet ANOTHER "iDevice" ..... they ran their course, Apple is a fad, move on to the next... Anyone can steal their game, just make a new GUI. Besides the Jailbreak community really should move to a different OS. Since Apple doesn't want to play nicely, just make android run like iOS. Problem solved, its easy to do on an android. Seriously people will realize soon the iPhone is a fad.

      That is all I need to know, bye bye Iphone! It has not the best technology out there anyway, look for example the Google phone, it has USB C interface whereas the iphone still suck using the Apple proprietary cable.
      If this is really the case, which I think it is, I will look into the Android world for my next phone.
