We are barely a month away from the official launch of the new iPhone and excitement levels are rising. Vetting our appetites is the newest video leak that lets us take a peek at the design of the two soon-to-be-launched variants. They are likely to be called iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, and here's what we know about them so far.

No headphone jack

This was one of the earliest rumours doing the rounds and, later, many leaks and reports confirmed that the next iPhone will not have the standard 3.5 mm headphone jack. Instead, it will use the proprietary lightning connector and Bluetooth headphones.

No 16 GB model, 32 GB to be the new base

When your phone is loaded with apps, photos, and 4K videos, 16 GB memory just doesn't cut it. Which is why Apple will be killing the 16 GB variant this year. The base model will have 32 GB of internal memory and other variants might go up to 64 GB and 128 GB. It is quite possible that the higher-end model could go up to 256 GB.

Hardware upgrades

Both iPhone variants will come with the new A10 processor. iPhone 7 will probably have 2 GB of RAM while iPhone 7 plus is tipped to have 3 GB of RAM. The cover design is also likely to have better waterproofing. The higher end iPhone might even come with a dual-lens rear camera.

Other updates

Apple will be releasing the next iPhone with an upgraded version of the 'TouchID' that will have a better response time and enhanced security. With Apple Pay being accepted at more and more places, this becomes necessary. The prolific news leaker, OnLeaks, has suggested that the new iPhone this year will come in the much awaited black colour.

The phone will reportedly be launched on 9 Septemeber, when Apple is expected to launch the new version of MacBook Pro as well. Recently, Apple achieved the distinction of selling a Apple Opens Siri to Developers

billion iPhones worldwide since it was first launched in 2007.
