Earlier in the week, a video out of China gave us a nice look into iPhone 7 dummies in Gold, Rose Gold and rumored Space Black. It’s time for another iPhone 7 video as we head out into the weekend.

Brand new footage, which surfaced last evening on Chinese social media, offers yet another comparison between a claimed iPhone 7 rear shell in rose gold finish and a Rose Gold iPhone 6s. Read More

 

Video: iPhone 7 mockups in Gold, Rose Gold and rumored Space Black

By Christian Zibreg on Jul 21, 2016

Many rumors surrounding Apple’s upcoming  iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus suggest a refined iPhone 6s industrial design with subdued antennal lines on the backside and the usual Gold, Rose Gold and Silver finishes, with at least one source pointing at a possible Apple Watch-like Space Black variant.

Ran Avni of YouTube channel ConceptsiPhone posted an interesting video yesterday, depicting iPhone 7 mockups in Gold, Rose Gold and Space Black to give us an idea what the handset might look like when it launches this fall. Read More

By Christian Zibreg on Jul 18, 2016

Dutch blog iPhoneabonnementen.com re-posted Monday some interesting new photos that allegedly show off a three-model iPhone 7 lineup consisting of the claimed ‘iPhone 7’, ‘iPhone 7 Plus’ and ‘iPhone 7 Pro’ models.

Another video compares claimed iPhone 7 casing to iPhone 6s

By Christian Zibreg on Jul 17, 2016

Two days ago, a six-second clip gave us our first non-static look at a claimed iPhone 7 dummy case.

Last evening, French blog NowhereElse.fr shared another video that was posted to Chinese microblogging site Weibo, which offers a side-by-side comparison of an iPhone 7 casing against the iPhone 6s’s industrial design.

Corroborating prior rumors, the claimed clip shows a larger camera opening on the backside plus redesigned, more subdued antenna lines and—you guessed right—no headphone jack. If Apple follows its usual release schedule, the iPhone 7 will make its debut in September. Read More

 

Short but sweet video out of China shows iPhone 7 design similar to previous leaks

By Christian Zibreg on Jul 15, 2016

Following a bunch of photographs, most of which have been leaking out of Asia, that purport to depict various iPhone 7 components, dummy cases and molds, a fully assembled iPhone 7 case has now been caught on video.

Posted to the Chinese social network Weibo by an unknown source, and first spotted by Dutch site TechTastic.nl, the short six-second clip gives us a look at the backside of what appears to be a 4.7-inch iPhone 7. Read More

 

Additional photos depict curved camera bulge on iPhone 7

By Christian Zibreg on Jul 14, 2016

Following a photograph posted this morning by Italian site Macity.it, which allegedly showed iPhone 7 case molds in Gold, Rose Gold, Space Gray and Silver (but not in the rumored Apple Watch-like Space Black appearance), French blog NowhereElse.fr posted a pair of case mold shots of its own.

Case molds depict what iPhone 7 may look like in Gold/Rose Gold, Space Gray and Silver

By Christian Zibreg on Jul 14, 2016

Italian site Macitynet.it posted this morning a photograph showing alleged 4.7-inch iPhone 7 case molds, giving us a decent indication what the upcoming handset may look like in Gold, Rose Gold, Space Gray and Silver finishes. If anything, the photo reaffirms Apple’s rumored design for the next iPhone with cleaner antenna seams and a protruding camera on the back, plus the four colorways. Read More

 

Fully assembled Lightning-based EarPods shown on leaked images

By Christian Zibreg on Jul 13, 2016

Last month, a batch of photographs out of China claiming to depict a Lightning-based version of Apple’s standard EarPods headphones left us scratching our head due to the product’s sketchy appearance. But now, French blog NowhereElse.fr points us to another set of leaked images, originally posted on the Chinese social network Weibo, that ostensibly show off a fully assembled EarPods headphones with a Lightning connector.

UPDATE: confirmed as fake. Read More

 

Crisp iPhone 7 Plus snaps show Smart Connector and, confusingly, no Mute switch

By Christian Zibreg on Jul 12, 2016

The industry-standard 3.5mm headphone jack may not be the only widely-used feature that is thought to be on the chopping block for the next iPhone. A new batch of high-resolution photographs that surfaced last evening appear to show off a larger 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus model that doesn’t seem to have the Mute switch on its side.

The photos were posted by French bog NowhereElse. The same publication released a set of images yesterday that gave us the clearest look yet at the iPhone 7’s subdued antenna lines. Read More

By Christian Zibreg on Jul 11, 2016

French blog NowhereElse.fr on Monday posted a claimed image of an iPhone 7 backplate which offers the clearest look yet at the subdued antenna lines along with a larger single-lens camera on its back. The alleged photo claims to represent Apple’s 4.7-inch iPhone 7 model and is in line with earlier leaks showing antenna lines running around the top and bottom edges of the handset and a single camera on the back with a larger opening versus that on the iPhone 6s.

CAD renderings “confirm” many rumored iPhone 7 features

By Christian Zibreg on Jul 6, 2016

I generally avoid using the verb “confirm” together with “rumor” and its synonyms in the same sentence, but in this particular instance it’s probably the right thing to do. Last night, claimed iPhone 7 technical drawings began circulating around the web, seemingly confirming many of the previously published rumors regarding Apple’s upcoming smartphone refresh.

Re-posted by French blog NowhereElse.fr and originally published on Chinese social media, these CAD renderings show a notably subdued antenna lines, no headphone jack, a pair of speaker grilles for stereo sound at the bottom, dual-cameras on the back of the 5.5-inch model and an enlarged single-camera hole on the 4.7-inch model, among other interesting features.

Photographs of claimed Lightning-based EarPods leak on the web

By Christian Zibreg on Jun 29, 2016

A sketchy photograph just surfaced on the Chinese microblogging service Weibo, appearing to show off a Lightning-based version of Apple’s standard EarPods headphones. As you know, Apple is widely expected to ditch the 3.5mm analog audio jack on the next iPhone in favor of wireless headphones via Bluetooth and all-digital wired headphones based on Apple’s proprietary Lightning connector.

Did iPhone 7’s touch-sensitive Home button just leak?

By Christian Zibreg on Jun 15, 2016

Many sources are adamant that we’ll have to wait until a tenth anniversary iPhone next year for a bezel-less device with an integrated Touch ID sensor and no Home button. As for the upcoming iPhone 7 revision, the most recent leak from MobiPicker suggests that the iPhone 7 might come outfitted with a touch-sensitive Home button that sits flush with the surrounding bezel, requiring users to perform tapping actions due to the absence of any moving parts.

Photos of alleged MacBook Pro seemingly confirm OLED touchpad rumors

By Cody Lee on May 31, 2016

New images surfaced on Tuesday of what is said to be a chassis for Apple’s upcoming MacBook Pro. Cult of Mac says they were sent the photos by “an anonymous source who claims to work for one of Apple’s manufacturing partners in China,” but that of course cannot be confirmed.

The so-called spy shots are interesting because there’s a noticeable gap in the laptop chassis, just above the keyboard. The oddity lines up with a recent investor note from prominent Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, which called for this year’s MacBook Pro to feature an OLED touchpad. Read More

 

New schematics leak suggests iPhone 7 won’t get any thinner, depicts bezel-less Plus model

By Christian Zibreg on May 26, 2016

Purported iPhone 7 schematics, leaked by Czech website LetemSvetem Applem, suggest that neither the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 nor its 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus counterpart may get any thinner than their present-generation iPhone 6s/Plus counterparts.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claimed last September that Apple’s next iPhone would be iPod touch-thin, measuring between 6-6.5mm for the 4.7-inch model. Read More

 

Another leaked schematics reaffirms dual-camera as iPhone 7 Plus exclusive

By Christian Zibreg on May 23, 2016

Differences between the 4.7-inch iPhone 6/6s and the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus/6s Plus are mostly confined to screen size, battery and optical image stabilization on the bigger model.

With the next iPhone, this imaging gap between the regular-sized model and its 5.5-inch brethren is expected to widen by a significant margin.

Purported iPhone 7 technical drawing discovered on Chinese forum Baidu by Italian-language HDBlog serves as yet another indication that the flagship iPhone 7 Plus model will be exclusively outfitted with a rumored dual-camera system, leaving the regular-sized iPhone 7 model with modest photography improvements stemming from a larger camera package.

Camera bump to remain part of iPhone design for another year, leaked photo suggests

By Christian Zibreg on May 23, 2016

A claimed photo of an alleged 4.7-inch iPhone 7 backplate, which surfaced on a Weibo account this morning, gives us a closer look at the handset’s protruding camera, cleaner antenna lines and more. Prior leaks showed a camera design not flush with the housing, but the new photo suggests that the rear camera could be slightly bevelled, too. Read More

 

Alleged iPhone 7 Plus parts reaffirm dual cameras, suggest 16/64/256GB models

By Christian Zibreg on May 22, 2016

French leaker Steven Hemmerstoffer yesterday republished an image of some claimed iPhone 7 Plus components, found on Weibo.

The photo appears to show an alleged dual-camera module said to be destined for the handset’s refresh, along with NAND flash chips which suggest that the iPhone 7 could include a new 256-gigabyte model.

The presence of both 16GB and 64GB memory modules on the photo might indicate that, disappointingly, the iPhone’s highly criticized low-storage 16GB model won’t be going away with the forthcoming hardware refresh. Read More

 

Another technical drawing suggests iPhone 7 has same width and height as iPhone 6s

By Christian Zibreg on May 9, 2016

Reliable French leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer via his blog NowhereElse.fr and Twitter handle @OnLeaks published this morning another claimed technical drawing of Apple’s forthcoming iPhone 7 which suggests that the device will be as tall and wide as the current-generation iPhone 6s, measuring in at exactly 67.1 mm wide and 138.3 mm tall.

The leaked drawing does not specify the depth of the iPhone 7, but previous rumors did point to an iPod touch-thin phone so it’s too early to tell if existing cases will fit the iPhone 7 or if these will need reengineering for a thinner form factor. Read More

 

Leaked screenshots show off minor design changes in upcoming iTunes 12.4 update

By Christian Zibreg on May 7, 2016

Apple is working on a minor update for desktop iTunes and MacRumors was able to obtain screenshots which show off several design improvements in tow for the app. This isn’t the top-to-bottom overhaul we’ve been all waiting for though the changes in iTunes 12.4 should make this infamous Mac and Windows app a bit easier to use.

As per the leaked screenshots, iTunes 12.4 packs in a redesigned media picker, a persistent sidebar for quick access to different sections of your iTunes library, a slightly reworked mini player and a tad simpler menus. Read More
