New Video Shows Off Alleged iPhone 7 Design With No Headphone Jack
Several images depicting what's believed to be the rear casing of the iPhone 7 have been surfacing on Chinese social networking sites in recent weeks, and today, a short video gives a more in-depth look at the prospective design of the device.
Shared by Dutch site TechTastic, the video features the same casing we've seen in photos, with relocated antenna bands that no longer span across the back of the device, a larger protruding camera hole to perhaps accommodate an improved image sensor, and overall, a design that's not much different than the design of the iPhone 6s.
Photos of the iPhone 7 casing have largely ignored the bottom of the device, which is actually visible in the video. Of note is the lack of a headphone jack, one of the most widely rumored iPhone 7 design changes Apple is undertaking. With no headphone jack, Apple will have more space for other components and will perhaps be able to improve the water resistance of the iPhone 7.
Also visible in the video is a second speaker hole located where the headphone jack used to be. There have been some rumors suggesting Apple will introduce stereo sound in the iPhone 7, but rumors disagree on this point.
Today's video only features the iPhone 7, but all of the above design elements are expected to extend to the iPhone 7 Plus, with the exception of the camera. The iPhone 7 Plus is rumored to have a dual-lens camera with a wider camera cutout.
As previously rumored, the next-generation iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will feature a unified volume button and a mute button, according to leaked CAD images shared in a video on the Chinese version of TikTok and posted to Twitter by ShrimpApplePro.
Instead of separate buttons for volume up and volume down, the iPhone 15 Pro models are expected to have a single elongated button for...
Apple says iOS 16.4 is coming in the spring, which began this week. In his Sunday newsletter, Bloomberg's Mark Gurman said the update should be released "in the next three weeks or so," meaning a public release is likely in late March or early April.

A first-generation iPhone still sealed inside its box sold for $54,904 at auction, which is more than $54,000 over the original $599 price tag of the device when it was released in 2007.
The original iPhone was put up for sale by RR Auction on behalf of a former Apple employee who purchased it back when it first came out. Back in February, an original, sealed iPhone sold for over $63,000,...
The iOS 16.4 update that is set to be released to the public in the near future includes voice isolation for cellular calls, according to notes that Apple shared today.
Apple says that Voice Isolation will prioritize your voice and block out the ambient noise around you, making for clearer phone calls where you can better hear the person you're chatting with and vice versa.
While year-over-year iPhone upgrades are not always groundbreaking, new features can begin to stack up over multiple generations. For example, the iPhone 15 Pro will be a notable upgrade for those who still have a three-year-old iPhone 12 Pro.
If you are still using an iPhone 12 Pro and are considering upgrading to the iPhone 15 Pro when it launches later this year, we have put together a...

Fact - we cn already have lightning headphones, but almost noone makes them because:
1. No demand.
2. Companies dont want to pay royaly fees when they dont have to.
Apple simply want to create a way to make more money from the license fees, and sell more wireless beats.
I look forward to the announcement and the obligatory "Whoops & Cheers" from the crowd that always seem to follow. Maybe, just maybe, there will be an uncomfortable silence.
I may be in the minority, but I for one hope there is as I really do not want to have to start having to use an adaptor, nor have any intention of replacing my current headphones that work with a very convenient, up until now, almost universally adopted connector type.
