Apple might not ditch the 3.5 mm audio port and might even introduce dual-SIM option in upcoming iPhones
There have been rising speculations that Apple might do away with the 3.5 mm audio jack in their upcoming iPhone 7 in favor of a Lightning or Bluetooth supported audio technology. But Engadget just reports that according to a smartphone repair shop called Rock Fix in Ganzhou, China, this might not come to be true in the end. Rock Fix has been posting images of iPhone 7 components lately. One of the images posted includes the Lightning cable assembly of 4.7 inch iPhone, which seems to show a headphone jack attached to it. Moreover the shop also showed pictures of a dual SIM tray for iPhones.
Rock Fix also claims to show 256 GB Sandisk memory chips as well as the screen panels in the customary 2 sizes. They have also floated pictures of a dual camera assembly for iPhone 7 Plus. Engadget also reports that the shop owner has told them about changes to the antenna design which he clarified won't actually remove the antenna bands from the back of the iPhones.
Rumors around the iPhone launch have started to gain momentum as the month of the launch closes by. Earlier it was reported that Apple might ditch the dual lens camera due to an immature technology but just the following day, another insider claiming to be a Foxconn employee jumped to say that the mass production has already begun. One thing's for sure that this time around, nothing would be confirmed close to the event and Apple might surprise us with some new advancements as they step into the 9th year of the iPhone. However, the rumor mills will keep churning all the way through.
