We are a little while away from the launch of iPhone 7, the next stellar expected launch from Apple that will take its smartphone portfolio a step ahead. This article will cover all the information about iPhone 7 right from its release date to its specification, price, rumors, features, leaked images and concept design. We hear a lot of rumors and leaked information about the next generation iPhone which expectantly will bear the same design and appearance of its predecessors.
9to5mac even got some leaked images to further confirm the facts that Apple will stay loyal to its already existing design aesthetics. However, yahoo’s statement that Apple “Apple has a few tricks up its sleeve for 2016” creates expectations for a better device with upgraded software and hardware specs.
The leaked images do not show the screen but seems like Apple is yet to catch up using OLED screens for its iPhone. But rumors indicate the possibility of scratch proof sapphire display for iPhone 7 similar to those used in its smartwatch.

The last time Apple tried to introduce sapphire screen for iPhone 6, production problems caused it abandon the attempt and stick to conventional LTPS based LCD screen. Speculation sources claim that Apple has entered into an agreement with Foxconn to get the tough screens readied without fail this time.
Since Apple has already started making iPhone in varying sizes the same trend is expected to continue without any abrupt stop. The iPhone 7 can be expected in 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches and perhaps a smaller screen size at sub-par 4 inches too targeted for specific group of customers.
