An unconfirmed iPhone 7 part which leaked out of China back in March had us wondering whether the iconic smartphone might come outfitted with the iPad Pro’s Smart Connector. Since then, various analysts and sources have speculated that this could indeed be the case, including the fairly reliable Japanese blog Mac Otakara.

Today, however, Mac Otakara reports that Apple has decided not to include the Smart Connector on the iPhone 7 after all.

The report does not give the reason for shelving the Smart Connector on the next iPhone aside from simply stating that’s the decision Apple has made—which indicates that the company had been considering making an iPhone with the Smart Connector before it ultimately abandoned such plans.
