Rumors are that Apple will endorse iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus as two products with the latter having the advantage of dual camera over the former. As far as features are considered, iPhone 7 introduces Force Touch pressure sensing technology, and the cancellation of 3.5mm headphone jack. Another change noticeable is that iPhone 7 doesn’t have the Smart Connector feature in iPhone 7. Comparatively there is nothing game changing between iPhone 7 and iPhone 6S releases, however a new generation of iPhone is set to release next year with a glass body to memorialize the tenth anniversary of Apple.

Leaked pictures from a French site show that the 3.5 mm jack that is generally meant for audio however, Apple might have introduced the new iPhone 7 headphones without the jack with some eye pleasing lightning feature. The connecting end of the headphone wire looks like a charging plug in most Apple devices. Now that 3.5 mm port is likely to be out of the picture, the users might have to utilize the only outlet available on the device to plug in for charging.
