Tomorrow is the day where millions of Apple fans would be watching eagerly the reveal of the newest iPhone. By now it is apparent that the Cupertino-based company is not going to make a drastic design change for this iteration of their beloved product.

However, it is clear that the company is bringing some noticeable changes. First and foremost, it is almost confirmed that there will be no headphone jack this time around. To make the phone thinner and have a better sound quality, the company is going with the lightening connector.

In another interesting move, Apple will finally kill the 16 GB version and make 32 GB a base version. This is a very logical step as today we have bigger applications, photos, and videos to cater. It is possible that there is a 256 GB version for the higher end version of the iPhone.

iPhone 7 plus or whatever the company decides to name it will get quite a handsome upgrade in terms of RAM and camera.

It will sport a dual camera lens setup which has been seen many times this year in phones such as LG G5, Huawei P9 and LeEco-Coolpad's Cool 1. Along with that, it will have a RAM of 3 GB instead of 2 GB of iphone 7.

KGI Securities' analyst Ming-chi Kuo said that apart from the normal options in colors there will be a Space Black and a Glossy limited edition Piano Black option as well.

Apple will use a new processor in A10 chip which will be clocked at 2.4 Ghz. Apart from that a new sensor for 3D touch will be used for better accuracy. The proximity sensor will also switch to laser technology for detection.

The company will be betting big on this phone as their result of the last few quarters were rather disappointing. For the first time in Apple's history, the revenue drop was registered.
