The rumors surrounding the next version of Apple’s iPhone have, as usual, spanned a wide range of possibilities. Now, however, we may have something more concrete.
On Sunday, a video surfaced that purports to show the iPhone 7, which is expected be released this fall, but hasn’t been shown off by Apple.
The new video comes from a Weibo user in China and was posted on YouTube by 9to5Mac.
In the video, which is narrated in Chinese, we see the supposed new iPhone 7 compared to an iPhone 6S. Based on the visuals alone, we see that the alleged new iPhone has redesigned antenna lines, a larger camera and, most importantly, no headphone jack.
That last detail, regarding the possible elimination of a headphone jack, has been rumored for months. This video, if it turns out to be authentic, shows exactly what handling an iPhone without a headphone jack would look like.
Additionally, the larger camera in the video looks a lot like the larger camera frame shown in other recent supposed iPhone 7 leaks. That consistent detail will lead some to assume this indeed the real iPhone 7. But a number of authentic-looking fake leaks have trickled from Chinese social media in years past, so it’s best not to start crying about the death of the iPhone headphone jack until it’s confirmed.
