Apple posted its report detailing its Christmas quarter earlier this week, prompting many to wonder whether or not Apple is doomed… again. Of course, that’s how many people reacted over the years, insisting on the inevitable demise of the iPhone, Apple’s biggest money maker. That has not happened, and it’s very likely it won’t happen soon.
Apple will continue to sell tens of millions of iPhones each quarter for the foreseeable future, even though sales may dip in some quarters. The iPhone 7 is surely going to be a hot product, and should contribute significantly to Apple’s Christmas 2016 quarter.
The iPhone 7 is going to be better than its predecessors, which is something we can say about any new iPhone. But what we’re mostly interested for the time being is Apple’ brand new design. After all, Apple introduces a dramatic design change every two years.
So while we wait for the iPhone 7 announcement – surely a mid-September affair – let’s check out some iPhone 7 concept videos, including some daring designs but also a few believable creations.
