Several new rumors about the next-generation iPhone have appeared on the Internet. According to the latest report from usually reliable KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the next-generation iPhone will feature a processor with a clock speed of 2.4 GHz. Apart from that, the 4.7-inch device will get 2GB of RAM and the larger 5.5-inch will get 3GB.
According to a new leaked image showing the retail packaging for the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus, the device may come with new “AirPods Wireless Earphones”. First rumors about Apple’s plans to ditch the traditional headphone jack appeared on the Internet this spring, but so far, nobody could tell for sure if the company was planning to ship new accessories with phones or sell them separately. Now it appears that the wireless headphones will be included in the iPhone 7 Plus package, whereas the smaller handset will be sold with EarPods and a special adapter. However, it should be noted that these are only rumors and suggestions.
According to the latest report from a Japanese website Macotakara, the next-generation iPhone will come in a new color, namely, Gloss Black. The shade is similar to the color the Mac Pro has. Earlier this year, first rumors about the device have appeared on the Internet suggesting that Apple may be planning to discontinue the Space Gray iPhone and introduce a new shade.
Apple has officially announced its rumored media event dedicated to the iPhone 7. The company has started sending out the invites for the upcoming unveiling. As it was reported earlier, Apple will introduce the next-generation device on September 7th.

According to the latest report from iFixit, which is based on data from multiple third-party repair shops and posts on Apple Support Communities and other online resources, there is a major problem affecting many, if not all, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus units. With time, users start seeing a gray bar at the top of the screen and face problems with touch input. But that is not the only bad news.
GeekBar has recently posted a couple of new images showing what appears to be an assembled front panel for the upcoming iPhone 7. The leaked part is slightly different from the component used in the iPhone 6s. Notably, there is no cutout for the physical Home button. Keeping in mind that the release of the updated handset is just around the corner, we may assume that the screen assembly is genuine and no different from the one that will be used in actual handsets.
