The iPhone 6 is only two months old, but iPhone 7 rumors are already getting traction.
Among devoted Apple followers, there’s a general consensus that the iPhone 7—if it’s not released as the iPhone 6S, following previous convention—will feature at least a 4.7-in. screen size, which is the size of Apple’s iPhone 6, according to MacWorld.
There’s also the possibility that several features already available on the Apple Watch may make their way to the next iPhone. These include sapphire glass, a highly durable screen material that was rumored for the iPhone 6, and wireless charging, which is also known as “inductive charging.”
Another rumor is that Apple could introduce “sidewall displays,” which allow the screen to curve onto the phone’s edges. The speculation is supported by Apple’s filing of a patent that describes smartphones with flexible displays that can be bent over the edges.
In accordance with how Apple usually upgrades its iPhones, users can likely expect improved cameras, performance and battery life. It’s also probable the iPhone 7 will arrive next September, the month Apple usually announces its newest iPhone.
Of course, new iPhone rumors don’t come without their fair share of somewhat outlandish features. There’s speculation that the iPhone 7 could have face-scanning technology, and even a rumor that it could have holographic screens.
Prices are rumored to be between $650 and $850 without a contract, which would make it the most expensive iPhone to date, according to Inquisitr.
