While we expect the new phone to sport the latest Apple processors, the iPhone 7 will also come with some added functionality that the previous iPhones have never seen before. Both leaked renders as well as images suggest that the device will come with a smart connector on the rear of the phone.

Furthermore, images show three dots lined up in the lower bottom of the rear end of the iPhone 7. The iPhone 6S did not feature any such smart connector.

The iPhone 7’s images also suggest an integrated Touch-ID sensor within the display as opposed to the standalone button that the iPhone 6S featured.

Apple is also expected to steer away from the standard 3.5mm jack and use its lightning connector to double-up for your headphones for audio playback. The iPhone 6S did use a 3.5mm jack for standard headphones.

Recent leaks also suggest that the 16GB variant of the iPhone will be scrapped, and a new 256GB variant will be introduced. This means that while the iPhone 6S was available in 16GB/64GB/128GB variants, the iPhone 7 may be seen in 64GB/128GB/256GB variants.
