Two new spy photos shared by a reliable French website Nowhereelse prove that the iPhone 7 may get a larger camera module and its larger sibling called the iPhone 7 Plus or Pro may be equipped with a dual camera. Today’s photos go in line with recent reports from supply chain sources and analysts who claim Apple is considering a switch to more advanced photo sensors for its 2016 iPhone lineup.
According to a statement made by a Hon Hai chairman Terry Gou, Sharp will start shipping OLED panels for the completely revamped iPhone in 2017. According to the executive, the panels will be ready in time for Apple to use them in the rumored handset.
Apple has just released the first beta of Safari 10 for OS X Yosemite and OS X El Capitan. The pre-release version of Apple’s browser for desktops is compatible with the latest OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 beta and OS X Yosemite 10.10.5, so if you have a compatible Mac, you can download the latest software and test it on your own machine right now.
Apple has released the third beta of iOS 9.3.3 and OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 to registered developers and public testers.

According to the latest report from the WSJ, Apple won’t completely change the design of the iPhone in 2016. The reporters believe that the company will improve water resistance and make the handset thinner and lighter. Moreover, it is very unlikely that the next-generation iPhone will get a headphone jack. As to the size, both iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will resemble the 4.7-inch iPhone 6s and 5.5-inch iPhone 6s Plus. The report cites KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who earlier this year said that the new iPhone may become 1mm thinner and made other predictions concerning the device.
According to the latest report from Macotakara, Apple plans to ship the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus with standard 3.5mm headphones and a Lightning adapter. Recent rumors suggest that the company will ditch the headphone jack to reduce thickness and weight of the devices and make the headphones compatible with the Lighting port of the handsets.
Apple has begun pulling the 2012 13-inch non-Retina MacBook Pro models from the shelves of Apple Stores in the United States. While the laptops are still available for purchase, they are no longer showcased to customers. They can’t take a closer look at the older devices and test them with their own hands. This may mean that Apple is preparing the ground for the rumored 13-inch MacBook Pro model with an OLED touch panel instead of function keys.
In addition to sharing a photo of the purported dual SIM card tray for the next-generation iPhone, Rock Fix has also posted several other images showing a dual lens camera module, headphone jack, and 256GB storage for the device. While the images seem to be legitimate, I don’t think we can believe them straight away.
Below you can take a look at the photos of the aforementioned leaked parts shared via Weibo.
According to a sketchy image showing something similar to the dual SIM card tray for the iPhone 7 that appeared on a Chinese social network Weibo, the next-generation smartphone may support the work of two SIM cards. The image has been shared by a smartphone repair shop Rock Fix, so I don’t think we should take what we see for granted.
Additional proofs of Apple’s plans to bring a new system-wide Dark Mode to iPhones, iPads and iPod touch units have been recently found in the first beta of iOS 10. A developer named Andrew Wiik managed to turn on the rumored mode for the Settings app on his iPhone running the latest firmware version.

It is Sunday today, which means it's high time I told you about the most popular posts of the last couple of days.

References have been found in iOS 10 beta that prove Apple may be planning to add a separate cellular data toggle to the Control Center. The introduction of a standalone switch for turning the cellular data on and off is a feature many users have been anticipating for quite a long period of time and it's nice the tech giant may demonstrate it soon.
If you like rumors like I do, you might have heard that Apple is reportedly planning to add a new touch-sensitive OLED panel instead of functions key on the new MacBook Pro. Many things point to this, for example, leaked photos of the alleged casing for the laptop or references found in the latest version of Apple’s desktop operating system called macOS Sierra. But what if Apple decides to integrate similar OLED panels into its wireless keyboards? Below you can take a look at the concept showing how everything may look like.
A well-known hacker nicknamed iH8sn0w has successfully jailbroken iOS 10 beta that was released to developers last Monday.

One of Apple executives has recently explained why the company hasn’t brought iMessage to Android. In a comment to tech journalist Walt Mossberg, this person revealed that there are two reasons for not expanding the messaging service to rival platforms.
