To be sure, Apple’s upcoming iPhone 7 will be a solid and respectable upgrade, complete with faster internals and improved camera performance across the board. That said, users anticipating a radical rethinking of the iPhone’s design will likely be disappointed when Tim Cook and co. take the wraps off of Apple’s next-gen smartphone next month. According to a number of credible sources and various leaks that have emerged over the past few weeks, the iPhone 7 will, by and large, closely resemble the design of Apple’s iPhone 6 and 6s models.
But for those willing to wait it out, Apple’s 2017 iPhone is shaping up to be an incredibly intriguing device. Echoing previous speculation from the rumor mill, a new report from Bloomberg relays that the iPhone 8 (Apple may skip the iPhone 7s nomenclature) will not ship with a mechanical home button.
