BGR writes that several different news sources, including CNBC, the Wall Street Journal, and Reuters, have all posted very similar stories today stating that the only major change expected for the iPhone 7 is the removal of the headphone jack. Everything else will be simply “subtle changes” according to CNBC, including the same size of screens (4.7-inch and 5.5 inch).
However, CNET adds that there will be much bigger changes to the iPhone in 2017 to mark the iPhone’s 10th anniversary. If true, this would break with Apple’s tried and trusted pattern of a major iPhone upgrade every 24 months.
This all pretty much ties in with many other recent rumours about this year’s and next year’s iPhones, and BGR goes as far as to say that having three major news outlets all reporting very similar news sounds a lot like an official PR leak from Apple. Basically, Apple wants to prepare us to not expect too much from the iPhone 7, and also to get us used to the fact that the headphone jack really has been removed, despite this being a far from popular change.
