According to this report, Apple is planning to add 3GB of RAM to the iPhone 7.

It is Sunday today, so let’s take a look at the most interesting posts of the last couple of days.
Most of the articles this week deal with the new tool for semi-tethered Pangu jailbreak of devices running iOS 9.2-iOS 9.3.3, rumors about the next-generation iPhone and its specs as well as with the long-anticipated new MacBook Air and Apple Watch 2.
A new rumor about the Apple Watch 2 has recently appeared on the Internet. According to this rumor, the wearable device will get a thinner glass that will reduce the overall thickness of the smartwatch. Currently, Apple uses a Glass on Glass (G/G) technology, but a new generation is said to feature a more advanced One Glass Solution (OGS) screen. The rumor comes from an Apple supplier called TPK Holding, so I guess we can believe it.
According to the latest report from a research firm iDC, in the third fiscal quarter of 2016, Samsung sold about 77 smartphones compared to only 40.4 million iPhones Apple managed to ship to its customers. As Apple fans wait for the new model to come this September, the South Korean giant sees increase in sales of its Galaxy S7. Samsung’s market share is now equal to 22.4%, while that of Apple is 11.8%. The average iPhone selling price has also decreased from $662 to $595 in 2016.
Even though first rumors about possible MacBook Air refresh in 2016 appeared on the Internet in June, there haven’t been any updates on the issue since that time. Today, however, a new report has been shared by usually-reliable Taiwanese website DigiTimes suggesting that Apple is still planning to update the MacBook Air lineup and will add a USB Type-C port to the machine. The new standard is becoming more and more popular, so releasing a new MacBook means adding the support for this standard as well.
According to the latest report from a Japanese website Macotakara, the next-generation iPhone called either the iPhone 7 or the iPhone 6SE will get a brand new flush Home button with integrated Touch ID fingerprint sensor. Today’s report goes in line with previous rumors suggesting that Apple may be planning to get rid of the physical button to improve the reliability of the iPhone.
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.
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.
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.
Apple has released the second public beta of iOS 10 and macOS Sierra to those users who have a valid public tester account.

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.
A well-known insider Evan Blass has recently revealed the codenames of two upcoming iPhone models. The presence of two codenames may mean that Apple is planning to release the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 and only one larger 5.5-inch model called either iPhone 7 Plus or iPhone 7 Pro. In case you don’t know, recent leaks and reports from suppliers indicated that in September we may see three smartphone versions, namely, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus and a brand new model with dual camera and Smart Connector called the iPhone 7 Pro.
It is Sunday today, so I guess it's time to discuss the most interesting posts of the last couple of days.
Most of the articles this week deal with the next-generation iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus or Pro. A number of images and even videos that appeared on the Internet earlier this week have shown the design of the new handset. Apart from that, as the release date comes closer, more rumors about the hardware used in the iPhone 7 surface on the Net.
Yet another leaked iPhone 7 part has recently appeared on the Internet. According to a video that was originally shared on the Chinese social network Weibo and then posted to YouTube, the upcoming smartphone will indeed lack the headphone jack. In line with previous leaks and rumors from reliable insiders, the clip reveals two speakers at the bottom for better sound quality as well as larger camera cutout for improved photo sensor.
