iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Pro’s boring blueprints leak: Really, Apple?

With the launch of Apple’s iPhone 7 looming, we’ve seen plenty of purported leaks of the device pop up, from sketches to actual dummy units. Now, thanks to images shared by OnLeaks (via uSwitch), we have what might be the final blueprints for Apple’s upcoming smartphones.

The images, apparently from an Apple casing subcontractor, appear to confirm several changes coming to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, the latter of which may actually be re-dubbed iPhone 7 Pro because of the inclusion of a Smart Connector, something that we recently heard was being “shelved” by Apple. That’s not the only difference between the two handsets, according to the blueprints.

Based on the leaked photos, the iPhone 7 Pro will be the only model to feature the new dual camera arrangement, which is something we’ve seen hinted at in the past. If true, the iPhone 7 Pro will have a lot of compelling exclusive features, including the aforementioned Smart Connector, dual-lens camera system, and what we assume will be a higher resolution display.

Both models will apparently lack 3.5mm headphone jacks and instead rely on Apple’s Lightning port. Meanwhile, dual-lens camera system or not, both devices appear to feature protruding cameras, something we see in virtually every major flagship out today.

Finally, uSwitch reports both devices will indeed have repositioned antenna bands, which we saw reflected in images that leaked earlier this week. Overall, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus don’t look drastically different compared to the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, which means fans hoping for a redesign might have to wait until 2017 at the earliest to see major changes.
