According to the information accidentally found in one of the interviews with Apple CEO Tim Cook, the iPhone 7 may support the Apple Pencil functionality. Adding the support for stylus to the iPhone, especially the 5.5-inch model, makes sense for those users who use their phones for messaging, creating handwritten notes, and possibly drawing.

A growing number of those iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users who used the latest version of Pangu jailbreak are reporting that the app gets unauthorized access to their Facebook, PayPal as well as credit and debit account details. While the Pangu team is trustworthy and very unlikely to steal user’s personal data, its Chinese partners who most likely had access to the tool or its ways of distribution might have used it for stealing sensitive data.
