Daring Fireball’s John Gruber has been talking on his The Talk Show podcast about some very interesting rumours that he’s heard about Apple’s 2017 iPhone.
According to Gruber, via AppleInsider, he has heard from sources that the 2017 iPhone will have an edge-to-edge display that covers the whole face of the phone.
“The Touch ID sensor will be somehow embedded in the display, the front-facing camera will somehow be embedded in the display, the speaker, everything,” he said.
The comments arose when Gruber was talking to analyst Ben Thompson about the fact that the forthcoming iPhone 7 will look pretty much exactly the same as the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s.
Gruber also said that it is his “gut” feeling that Apple will not be calling this year’s iPhone the iPhone 7, although he has not heard anything to that effect from his sources.
Returning to the 2017 iPhone, however, Gruber says that it will be quite different from recent iPhone models.
“2017 is going to be the jaw-dropping, wow, that’s an astonishing industrial design iPhone.”
