iPhone 7 schematic shows Smart Connector, borderless display on iPhone 7 Plus

It’s become a weekly occurrence to see schematics for Apple’s upcoming iPhone 7, and once again more have leaked out. This time, they slightly contradict other images we saw recently, with dots on the back of the iPhone 7 Plus indicating the device will indeed support Apple’s Smart Connector.

Aside from that possible revelation, the schematics are pretty ordinary, showing some measurements and once again confirming the iPhone 7 Plus will sport a dual-lens camera. The iPhone 7, meanwhile, looks virtually identical to Apple’s existing iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s, suggesting fans are in for a minor upgrade this year (at least in terms of design).

According to the schematics, the iPhone 7 might be slightly thicker than the iPhone 6s, possibly to make room for a bigger battery while the iPhone 7 Plus will be pretty much the same size as the previous iPhone 6s Plus. 9t5Mac points out the schematic depicts a frameless display on the larger model which stretches from edge to edge. Whether that’s simply due to the crude nature of the schematic or an actual feature remains unclear.

Based on what we’ve already seen of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, Apple may not have many major surprises up its sleeve. Be that as it may, we still don’t expect to see the company’s new devices until at least September, which means we could be in for a long summer of leaks.
