iPhone 7 design said to fix our biggest gripes with the iPhone 6s

The iPhone 6s is a fine looking smartphone, but there are a few changes we might have made if we were calling the shots at Apple. Thankfully, it sounds like the Cupertino company may take our collective criticism to heart when it releases the iPhone 7 later this year.

MacRumors reports that the iPhone 7 design will fix two annoying design details from the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s. First, the camera will finally be flush with the rest of device instead of jutting out. Second, the antenna bands will be a little less visible.

The news comes from a source who MacRumors says has proven reliable in the past. The report notes the iPhone 7 Plus may still pack a noticeable camera hump, especially if it includes that rumored dual-lens camera. As for the new antenna bands, they’ll apparently hug the edges of the device, giving the back panel a cleaner overall look. The report also includes a mockup of the device (pictured above) based on these new details.

If this source is telling the truth the iPhone 7 could look pretty nice, though we’re still hoping Apple can really surprise us this year instead of pushing out another boring iterative update.

For a more exciting take on the iPhone 7 check out our own commissioned concept design, which focuses on rumors that the device could ditch its headphone jack.
