Aside from the rumored iPhone 8, Apple is also said to be updating its present flagship smartphones, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Japanese blog site Macotakara has a new report today indicating that the successor of the iPhone 7 series will come in an all new color. The site says Apple will add a red casing color, joining the existing Black, Jet Black, Silver, Gold and Rose Gold options.
Apple iPhone 7 And 7 Plus To Come In All-New Color
Apple is said to be promoting a new color for the updates of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. According to 9to5 Mac, KGI has previously reported that Apple will introduce three new iPhones in 2017. This would include one majorly redesigned ‘iPhone 8’ with OLED display and no physical Home Button, as well as two iterative updates to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
Mac Otakara has a decent track record when it comes to reporting details about unreleased Apple products, especially iPhones. It was the first site to say that Apple would remove the headphone jack with the iPhone 7 and it was true. The site says Apple will add an all-new red color alongside current Black, Jet Black, Gold, Rose Gold, and Silver options.
Apple iPhone 7 And 7 Plus To Come In Wireless Charging
The report of MacRumors claims the smartphones will retain the same aluminum design as the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, with only internal changes, including the addition of a faster A11 chip.
If this report is accurate, it could signify Apple's plans to release a completely overhauled glass-backed iPhone with a curved, bezel-free OLED display and wireless charging at the high end of its 2017 smartphone lineup, while making only incremental upgrades to its traditional 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones with LCD displays.
Remember that earlier report from another Japanese website Nikkei Asian Review said Apple plans to release three glass-backed iPhones next year, while it was said the 4.7-inch iPhone would get wireless charging, so there remains a lack of consensus among rumors—perhaps unsurprising given new iPhones are likely over nine months away.
