An image of the rear case allegedly belonging to the Apple iPhone 7 has leaked. A photograph of the inside and outside of the case was taken off of a computer, and appears to have been snapped at Catcher Technologies. The latter is an Apple supplier that produces casings for the iPhone. Instead of the protruding camera seen on the Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6s, there is some black material around the rear-camera cutout that was described as a "slight bulging outgrowth."Other changes include the removal of the antenna lines on the back case, and as expected, the earphone jack has been eliminated. The source of the image says that the casing is thinner than the one used on the iPhone 6s.The unveiling of the Apple iPhone 7 is still roughly half-a-year away. which means that we should take this image with a grain of salt. However, we should point out that in March 2014, images that were alleged to be that of the Apple iPhone 6 were leaked by a Foxconn employee. Those images turned out … [Read more...] about Rear case of Apple iPhone 7 leaks sans antenna lines, protruding camera and earphone jack

While we are still roughly four months away from the unveiling of the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus, a tweet from NWE editor Steve Hemmerstoffer's @OnLeaks Twitter account reportedly shows CAD images of the next iPhone models. As you can see, changes to the newer versions of the phone include the removal of the two antenna lines on the back cover, and the addition of a Smart Connector port on the larger Apple iPhone 7 Plus. And there are more coming, but first let's step back for a moment.UPDATE: Hemmerstoffer, as his alter-ego OnLeaks, has created a video clip from his CAD image of the iPhone 7. You can see it in the video on top of this story.The images purportedly come from Catcher, a sub-contractor that works for Apple. And if you think that this CAD design might be off base, two years ago a leaked CAD image of the previously unseen Apple iPhone 6 revealed the exact look of the phone a good six months before its unveiling, down to the antenna lines and the protruding … [Read more...] about Computer Aided Design of the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus appear (UPDATE)
Diagrams allegedly revealing the measurements of the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus surfaced today, revealing that the upcoming new iPhone models will be a tad thicker than the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus. While the iPhone 6s measures 7.1mm thick, the leaked diagram of the iPhone 7 reveals it to be 7.2mm thick. And the iPhone 7 Plus will also be 1mm thicker at 7.3mm, according to a second diagram. The height and width of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 both measure 138.3mm x 67.1mm. The height and width of the iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone 7 Plus both measure 158.2mm x 77.9mm. Again, the only difference in size between last year's and this year's models is the additional 1mm in thickness that will apparently be found on this year's handsets. Apple users are hoping that the extra mm in thickness is the result of a higher capacity battery.The diagrams also show that the iPhone 7 Plus will feature a dual camera setup, while the iPhone 7 will carry a single camera on the back. … [Read more...] about Leaked diagrams reveal that the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus will be slightly thicker
We've often turned to case make Spigen to show off images of an upcoming phone because of the renders it provides while showing off new cases. And that is the, uh, case once again with the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus. The company's iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus collection includes 17 different protective cases for the iPhone 7 Plus. More importantly, each one shows off the dual camera setup on the back of the phone. We expect the extra 12MP camera to provide optical zooming, and perhaps some bokeh capabilities (hinted at by the invitation to the September 7th event). The Apple iPhone 7 image confirms the removal of the 3.5mm earphone jack, and the larger lens on the rear camera.Take a peek at Spigen's cases now by clicking on the sourcelink, and you can figure out which one you're going to buy to preserve the looks of your new iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus.

This one will be a major point of difference for many people — and we’re going to be upfront and say that we won’t be awarding a winner here. After all, software largely comes down to personal preference.We can, however, highlight some of the major differences between the two phones. While iOS is often considered the easier-to-use of the two mobile operating systems, Android is considered to be the OS that “does more.” That’s to say, if you know what you’re doing, you may get more out of Android. If you want things to “just work,” on the other hand, then iOS may be the mobile OS for you.The HTC U11 runs pretty close to stock Android, but there are some major additions to the software. For example, HTC has included its digital assistant, called Sense Companion. Sense Companion is not a voice-based assistant, but rather an assistant that will pop up every now and then with suggestions based on your calendar and usual mobile use … [Read more...] about HTC U11 vs. Apple iPhone 7 Plus: Can Android champ beat Apple’s flagship?
