One of the first iPhone 7 rumors is making its rounds throughout the web today. Supposedly, Apple is working on a dual-lens camera for the next generation of iPhone. This will apparently be a completely redesigned camera module. That's not all though... the same source of this rumor indicated Apple is also working on a new 3D pressure sensor which will be designed to enhance Apple's health related apps.

Here's a quote with a few more details,

The other novelty that this year's iPhone will sport, according to the "supply chain sources," is said to be a 3D pressure sensor, which will be used in connection with Apple's Health app, and on its upcoming watch as well. The 3D part apparently means that there will be a depth "Z" axis added to the usual X and Y ones of the touch sensor, which is said to be used for aiding to measure pulse and blood pressure. If Apple manages to pull that pressure sensor thingy off, it will indeed be something rather unique to differentiate the iPhone 6S, iPhone 7, or whatever the handset gets named in the fall.

Of course, as always, take these rumors with a grain of salt, as they are unconfirmed at this time. We will keep you updated if more evidence comes forth. [Editors Note: the above image is of a Toshiba dual-lens prototype and is meant only as an example image.]
