Apple iPhone 7 Rumours: Extremely Thin Design In the Works

Apple iPhone 7 rumours have already started popping up on the internet. According to the latest rumour, Apple is going to make its latest flagship device extremely thin. Due to the 3D Touch both the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus were thicker than the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. The new 6S version had .2mm increased thickness than its counterparts.

But, Apple is sending its upcoming smartphone on a diet. The handset will measure somewhere between 6mm and 6.5mm. Rumour is that the company is looking to accomplish this by removing the 3.5mm earphone jack. This will make the device sleeker.

Most people were hoping that Apple will use the space freed by removing the earphone jack to equip the smartphone with a higher capacity battery instead of just making the device thinner. Although, another rumour suggests that we might still get a bigger battery in the iPhone 7.

A photo of an alleged iPhone 7 battery reveals that it will have a 6.5% increase in watthours. The iPhone 6S has 6.61 WHr which will increase to 7.04 WHr.  This percentage increase would increase the iPhone 7 battery to 1826mAh from the 1715mAh of the iPhone 6s battery.
