An exciting thing about upcoming iPhone announcements are the concepts that regular people put out there prior to the official announcement. Some concepts are quite realistic and others are amazing but downright unrealistic. However, a recent concept, by designer Arthur Reis, looks incredibly realistic and the render could be what the iPhone 7 actually looks like.
Immediately noticeable is the lack of the 3.5mm headphone port. Recently, many analysts and reliable sources suggested that Apple will be removing the headphone port from the iPhone 7. It seems like a very Apple thing to do, and it’s almost a certainty that the iPhone 7 will come without a headphone port.
Reis’ concept reflects this controversial change and also reflects what people think will take the place of the headphone port, speakers.
As well as the missing the headphone port, the concept shows a few other design changes which have been rumoured to be made to the upcoming iPhone. On the back of the phone, we see a camera which doesn’t protrude – an improvement many current iPhone users suggested. The corners of the phone in the concept Reis has imagined look slightly less rounded than the current iPhone 6S – which gives the concept a more iPhone 5-ish look.
Other than that, aesthetically, the concept looks fairly similar to the design of the current iPhone. This is realistic, as we’ve often seen Apple not make drastic changes to the design of the iPhone since the 5S.
