On top of that, Apple would purportedly include higher-quality lenses (with more elements) and extra LED flashes to produce more natural color in low-light photos.
If the report is accurate, you also wouldn't have to worry quite so much about Apple ditching the headphone jack. Much like Motorola, Apple is supposedly bundling a headphone adapter (in this case, Lightning to 3.5mm) in every iPhone 7 and 7 Plus box on top of native Lightning earbuds. It still wouldn't be as elegant as a native 3.5mm port (you'd likely have to go wireless to listen to music while you charge), but you wouldn't have to buy a dongle to keep using your pricey wired headphones.
There's more. Kuo also hears that the A10 chip powering the new iPhones will run at a much higher 2.4GHz clock speed (the A9 in the iPhone 6s and SE tops out at 1.85GHz). And if you're the sort who has to get a new color to prove that you have the latest iPhone, it might be your lucky day. The analyst elaborates on a previous rumor by claiming that Apple will replace its seemingly ubiquitous space gray color with "dark black," and there would even be a glossy "piano black" if you're feeling ostentatious. Oh, and the purported second speaker grille? That would hold a new sensor to improve Force Touch, though it's not certain how that would work.
To top it all off, the report also supports a few existing stories. The new iPhones would indeed be water-resistant, surviving depths of 3.3 feet for 30 minutes. And Apple would not only double the base storage, but the mid-tier's storage as well. You'd be shopping between 32GB, 128GB and 256GB models, much like you do with the iPad Pro. The display resolution won't be going up, Kuo says (boo!), but you would get the smaller iPad Pro's wider color range. All told, Apple would be counting on a ton of iterative improvements to get you to upgrade. Even if this isn't the big redesign you'd hope for, it'd be more than just a modest tune-up.
