iPhone 7 release date rumors: Deep Blue color variant to replace Space Grey?


Rumor has it that the new and upcoming Apple iPhone 7 might choose to ditch a familiar color variant in favor of a new one.

According to information coming in from a Japanese source as reported by Apple Insider  Apple is said to be introducing a new Deep Blue color variant for the iPhone 7 and at the same time, will be totally removing the option for the Space Grey color variant. Space Grey was first introduced by Apple during the release of the then new iPhone 5s, back in 2013. Since then, the color variant had been a regular option in almost all of the succeeding generations of iPhones.

Apple is expected to finally unveil the much awaited new iteration of the iPhone sometime this fall. The device has been a hot topic in the rumor mill for quite some time now that most of its specifications and the changes that it would probably come in with have already been made known to fans and users.

Some of the biggest changes that the iPhone 7 is said to be implementing is the removal of the standard 3.5 mm headset jack. This is reportedly due to Apple seeking to promote the sales and use of wireless Bluetooth headsets. The iPhone 7 is said to be coming with a Bluetooth headset that is rechargeable directly via the iPhone itself, through the Lightning port. Other notable specs include an A10 processor, 3 GB of random access memory and a 256 GB memory storage option. There is also a possibility of a dual-lens camera setup. Despite the widely reported specs, these features have not been confirmed by Apple.

With the iOS 10 rumored to be unveiled at the upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference 2016 later this week, the new iPhone is expected to carry the latest version of the software out of the box.
