iPhone 7 launch date is CONFIRMED ! Apple to unveil its new smartphone next week

The rumour is that it the larger iPhone will get a dual-lens camera that will be able to snap SLR-quality photos and 3D images.

There has been a lot of talk about Apple removing the Home button, but the latest rumours suggest this will be a key feature of next year’s model.

Instead, Apple could add some pressure-sensitivity to the Home button, meaning it will perform different functions depending on how hard you press it.

The latest leaked pictures suggest that Apple is going to get rid of the plastic lines that run across the back of the iPhone.

These lines currently allow radio signals to pass through the metal casing and reach the antennas. However, it looks like Apple may be planning to redesign the case to get around this restriction.

There is some suggestion that the iPhone 7 will be waterproof. Smartphone rivals like Samsung already make waterproof phones – and this is a big selling point for people prone to clumsiness.

Apple has improved the water-resistance of its devices in recent years, but it yet to release a fully waterproof phone.

Earlier rumours suggested that the new handset will no longer come in a 16GB model – but that the top-of-the-range iPhone will now offer 256GB of storage.

It’s also expected to feature fast-charging technology – meaning your phone will get several hours of battery life from just a few minutes of charging.

Finally, there have been several leaked pictures purporting to show a blue iPhone 7, suggesting Apple may be considering different colour options.

Alongside the iPhone 7, Apple is expected to unveil the Apple Watch 2, and potentially the iPad Mini 5 and the iPad Pro 2.
