Apple May Do Away with iPhone's Home Button In 2017

"Apple iPhone (maybe Apple Watch?) event on Sept 7 at 10AM in SF". The leaked images confirms the new look of Apple iPhone 7.

There have also been rumors that Apple is planning to introduce a third premium handset in 2017 and that it will feature a curved display meaning Samsung will not be the only manufacturer with a curved display. New MacBooks don't normally come during a September Apple event and are usually held off until October, however we may be surprised since last year's Fall event jammed the iPhone 6s/Plus, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, new Apple Watch colors and bands, and the fourth generation Apple TV into one single event.

Meanwhile, the base iPhone 7 may not get the same treatment in terms of camera, but it's not getting left out. A future iPhone would include technology called FeliCa, a mobile tap-to-pay standard in Japan developed by Sony Corp, people familiar with the matter said.

Under the proposal, almost 51,000 postal workers would continue delivering mail and working up to 8 hours a day. A postal worker walks past Canada Post trucks at a sorting centre in Montreal on July 8, 2016.

Finally, there have been several leaked pictures purporting to show a blue iPhone 7, suggesting Apple may be considering different colour options. It is rumored that the new iPhone 7 will miss the 3.5m Audio jack and will rely on lightning port headphones.

According to other sources familiar with Apple's supply chain, the number of core processor chip shipments "may drop up to 15 percent" compared to 2015 supply chain orders, while panel orders "are dropping around 20 percent" compared to orders placed in the same period.

The issue on the shortage of iPhone 7 production is reportedly caused by the defects in the waterproof speaker and dual-camera module, which Apple reportedly has not yet resolved. It comes with 1,960mAh battery. There are also reports about Apple manufacturing wireless earbuds, which may accompany the iPhone 7. Viewers can stream the entire event on their iOS 7 or later device, their Mac running OS X 10.8.5 or later and Safari 6.0.5 or later, or their PC with Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge. However, nothing has been set in stone yet and Apple is expected not to provide concrete details with regard to the development of iPhone 8. It will go on sale in U.S. and other countries from third week of September.
