According to the latest report from DigiTimes reporters, in 2018, the iPhone will get a brand new biometric scanner. The supply chain insiders are sure that Apple will add an iris scanner to the next-generation iPhone to enhance its security features.
The Pangu team has recently released a semi-tethered jailbreak compatible with 64-bit iOS devices running iOS 9.2-iOS 9.3.3.

Two new images showing what appears to be a prototype of the second-generation iPad Pro have recently appeared on the Internet. The photos have been reportedly shared by an unidentified Chinese supplier.
As you can see below, the tablet has a model number MH1C2CD/F that is a bit different from the numbers current 12.9-inch iPad Pro models have. Moreover, the unit depicted on today’s photos reveal the storage capacity of only 12GB that is a bit of surprise. However, provided that the photos are legitimate and we see a real iPad unit, we may assume this amount is enough for a prototype device. The device is running the latest iOS 10 beta released to developers earlier this month.
According to the latest report from a German website called apfelpage.de, the next-generation iPhone will be called the iPhone 6SE, not the iPhone 7. This rumor makes sense if we take into account the reports suggesting Apple may be planning to start releasing major updates for the iPhone lineup once in three years, not once in two years. Apart from that, the ‘6SE’ branding suits the next-gen iPhone perfectly, as in terms of design and functionality it is expected to be very similar to the iPhone 6s released in 2015.
It is Sunday today, so I believe we should take a look at the most interesting posts of the last seven days.

There are also some posts telling about new builds of iOS and OS X released to developers, public testers and all other users worldwide.

According to the latest rumor shared by a well-known insider Evan Blass who has been correct in the past, the release of the rumored iPhone 7 and its larger sibling called the iPhone 7 Plus or Pro will take place during the week of September 12th. It is currently unclear whether Blass refers to the date of Apple’s media event devoted to new handsets or the date of their availability for customers in the USA and other countries of launch. Anyway, the information goes in line with previous rumors and reports from reliable insiders.
The Pangu team has released a jailbreak of iOS 9.3.3. Currently, the app for jailbreak is available only in Chinese, but very soon the hackers will release an English version.

According to the latest report from Deutsche Bank researchers, alongside the iPhone 7 Apple will ship a Lightning to 3.5mm jack adapter to make older EarPods compatible with the new smartphone. What this means is that the company will not release a brand new pair of headphones for the next-generation iPhone.
As the iPhone 7 release date comes nearer, more and more leaks appear on the Internet. Today, a new photo has been posted to the Chinese social network Weibo comparing the alleged iPhone 7 rear panel to that of the iPhone 7 Plus or Pro.
As you can see below, the main difference between the iPhone 7 component and the part of the larger handset is the presence of the rumored dual camera. The antenna bands on the image seem to look a bit different from those we have seen recently.
According to the latest report from The Information, the launch of the widely-rumored electric vehicle designed and manufactured by Apple may take place in 2021. Earlier this year, rumors appeared on the Internet suggesting the company was planning to start selling its car in 2020. However, when Steve Zadesky, a key figure in the development of the vehicle, left the company in January, Apple faced some difficulties that moved the release date one year ahead.
A new video that appeared on YouTube yesterday gives us a closer look at three upcoming iPhone 7 models that are expected to be unveiled in September. The clip shows us something similar to the Rose Gold, Gold and Space Black colors. The latter one is a new rumored color option Apple is reportedly planning to launch this year. Although it is rather similar to the Space Gray color, it is a bit darker.
The video was first shared on a YouTube channel called ConceptsiPhone. You can watch it below.
Apple has released the second public beta of iOS 10 and macOS Sierra to those users who have a valid public tester account.

Apple has recently shared two new videos highlighting the cameras on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Both short clips are parts of the "Shot on iPhone" campaign launched back in 2015. The videos are available below or on Apple’s official YouTube channel.
According to the results of the poll conducted among the U.S. customers, only 9.3% of current iPhone users are planning to upgrade to the newer iPhone 7 this year. The reason for such poor results is connected with rumors suggesting the iPhone 7 lineup will largely resemble the iPhone 6s lineup externally. If Apple changes the design of the iPhone in 2016, 25.2% of current users may upgrade.
