The reports further show a concept of display and radius on the upcoming iPhone 7 similar to the iPhone 6S. But the device will come to be the thinnest among all the Apple iPhone models. After the reduction in size you may connect your headphone viva lightning port or Bluetooth. Apple has already introduced lightning headphones last year but in a limited number.

As the report discuss, the 3.5mm port is the standard in size which seems quite hard to reduce in size. However Apple has already reduced the thickness of its iPad touch by 1mm despite the 3.5mm port. The company has already tested other options including introducing the failed 2.5mm port years back.
