Mock-ups suggest an iPhone 7 Pro could be in the works

  1. Another day, another new set of images purportedly showcasing Apple’s next iPhones. The latest leaked images showcase dummy models for the iPhone 7, the iPhone 7 Plus and an additional model labeled as the iPhone 7 Pro.

    The iPhone 7 Pro appears to be the same size as the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus, save for two distinct characteristics. The first is the dual-camera system found on the back of the device which has been the subject of rumors dating back to 2014.

    The second noteworthy feature on the reverse of the iPhone 7 Pro is a Smart Connector near the bottom, much like the one found on the iPad Pro. This three-pin connection is used to interface with various accessories like keyboards, USB camera adapters and SD card readers. Adding the connector to the iPhone could pave the way for much easier pairing with accessories of all kinds.

    These images, courtesy of French site Nowhereelse.Fr, are again of dummy models which are typically used by accessory manufacturers to get a head start on designing cases and other products for upcoming devices.

    MacRumors believes the dummy models in the new images may be outdated based on the fact that both of the larger handsets have the “S” designation on the rear.

    Apple is widely expected to reveal and launch its latest iPhones come September.

    These "mockups" also suggest these are iPhone 7s models.....according to the 'S' icon on the back.

    Have a friend who worked for apple that told me they would release "mock-ups" or early images of iphones to gauge the public's interest and love for it.

    Of course Apple would add a new proprietary connector so they can gouge your wallets even further.

    The Apple super-secret-sauce hype-cycle begins to spin again. Recycled. Redundant. Boring. Next!
