Apple won’t release its next-generation iPhone until the fall of 2016, so there are still months of development ahead. For the current time, Apple’s flagship iPhones are the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus, released to the public in September of 2015, reported macrumors.com.

To be transparent, they are all excellent products that CNET earned 4 stars above. However, they all suffered from Apple’s phone factor: this year’s tech wrapped up in last year’s design, stated CNET.

“As you get to the 7, all the stuff you’ve seen so far, all the discussions, again indicate it’s a bit more of an evolutionary product rather than revolutionary,” Daryanani stated on CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street.”

The new features the iPhone 7 are expected to have are no headphone jack, and OLED display instead of and LCD display, smart connector charging, a new sport home button making it possible to record and save your heart rate, added appleinsider.com.

“The expectation today is about a 10 percent uptick in capital allocation as you go into the call. If it’s something better, if they talk about repatriating money, that $200-billion-plus they have offshore into the US, returning it back to shareholders, that absolutely could drive the stock much higher,” Daryanani explained.

Apple usually keeps the same design for two generations of the iPhone (the 4 and 4s, say, or the 6 and 6s), before unveiling a physical redesign on the next update. We expect the iPhone 7 to be fundamentally different in look and design to the two generations of iPhone that precede it, stated cnbc.com.

In this case we would expect less dramatic enhancements in each update: perhaps the full iPhone 7 in autumn, followed by an ‘S’-class update in the spring. Or Apple might choose to update its 4-inch smartphones in one set of announcements and its larger phones in the other, reported macworld.co.uk
