Rumors about the iPhone 7 never seems to end, everyday a new rumor trickles in, come in different forms and from different sources. In continuation of our iPhone 7 rumors article: iPhone 7 : what we know so far (2), we bring you some of the latest speculations about next year’s Apple iPhone and we think about them.
There are weirdly wild and totally implausible speculations or rumors being peddled about the iPhone 7 battery. The rumors claim that next year’s iPhone 7 may have a significantly improved battery life – this is virtually light years from the truth. We don’t intend to be the “messenger of doom” , but if you are expecting a ‘significantly’ improved battery life from Apple inc in the iPhone 7, then you are most certainly going to be disappointed. It’s feasible, it’s plausible, but it’s not going to happen – at least not with the iPhone 7 and there is nothing any anybody can do about it. Striking a final blow to the rumors, Apple CEO Tim Cooks recently hinted that consumers aren’t just ready to accept a larger battery for to get an improved battery life. Coming from Apple’s most high ranked crème de LA crème, its safe to say that the idea is dead on arrival. After all is said and done, one fact is established – the iPhone 7 is coming with improved battery life, if at all, the difference will be quite minimal.

Action may speak louder than words in the real world (on earth), but on mars (on the internet) were rumor geniuses like us are residing – pictures and videos speaks louder than them all. After being bombarded with zillions of ‘worded’ rumors from legions of rumor peddlers, we bring you some creative iPhone 7 concept images and videos. Obviously, most of them will not make it pass the internet, neither are going any where near Apple’s iPhone 7 design, but these are the most plausible concept that won my private Grammy in the ” iPhone 7 rumors” category.
The first concept is a rather creative one, designed by Antonio De Rosa Studio (click to see more), the concept burrows the key element of the Apple watch – the digital crown – and replicates same on the side of the smartphone. Its may not be actually plausible but its truely a fascinating imaginative leap.

Designer Martin Hajek has also created some beautiful images of the next iPhone. His designs may not be quite similar to Antonio De Rosa’s but both their designs seem to be inspired by the Apple Watch. While Antonio’s design borrows the apple watch control concept, Hajek’s design grabs the apple watch color choice
– The rose Gold.
Below are also some beautiful concept from Designer – Gasser Farahi
There are rumors that The iPhone 7 could get a USB-C port, just like the new 12-inch MacBook, however we think this is highly unlikely. The change from 30-pin to the Lightning ports quite recent, Switching again now would be highly controversial and May give Apple some PR headaches for some time.
Earlier i speculated that Apple are almost certainly going to stick to their 7000 series aluminium. But a weibo blogger who cites 15 years of experience in integrated circuit design and has over – 32,904 fans on the site claims that the iPhone 7 will not be made of metal. He claims that next year’s flagship will be made of “something else” though he didn’t hint on possible materials that may be used. However, considering the recent “Bendgate” saga and that Apple just recently adopted the 7000 series aluminium, I stand by my previous speculation. The only plausible reason Apple would want to ditch using metals would be if its planning wireless charging for the iPhone 7. However, watch this site for frequent updates.
