Designer Martin Hajek has come up with vision of howÂ Appleâ€™s next flagmanÂ will look like. The iPhone 7 is smaller but wider than its previous versionÂ and has a full screen display.
The speaker has been moved to the top of the device. Whatever it may look it, no one can say it untilÂ the iPhone 7 releaseÂ is planned in September 2015 (when the internet is saturated with leaked iPhone pics).
Mr Hajek said: “Based on an idea from tech editor Steven Tweedie from Business insider I visualised what an iPhone 6 would look like with the display pushed to the edges.”
Meanwhile, the Cupertino based cpmpany’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus continue to hit the market, breaking Appleâ€™s previous iPhone 5s/iPhone 5c records and securing the company a 40% market share in the UK, according to research firm Kantor Worldpanel ComTech.
Kantar Worldpanel ComTech strategic insight director Dominic Sunnebo said: â€śApple has experienced a huge jump in sales share across almost all major markets thanks to the launch of the iPhone 6.
â€śIn major European economies, the US and Australia, Appleâ€™s share of sales has risen. This success is particularly evident in Great Britain where Apple now has its highest ever share of sales, with 39.5%.â€ť
Another reports that came earlier this weekÂ claimed that the popular devices makerÂ is looking to discontinue the iPhone 5cÂ and iPhone 4s, with production of the handsets widing down in the second half of 2015.
The company was not available for comments on the issue â€“ it never speaks about rumorsÂ â€“ and we, for one, will certainly be sad to see the back of the iPhone 5c.
â€śThe new schedule is expected to stagger the releases of two devices in 2015 to capitalise on sales,â€ť reports The Mail Online. â€śApple could release the iPhone 6S to people who want to upgrade to a slightly cheaper model, before announcing its flagship iPhone 7 in the autumn.â€ť
The Californian tech giant tends to preserveÂ its design well alone between iterations of iPhone, saving the BIG design updates for every other cycle, as evidenced by the big switch from the iPhone 5 to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. This means that the iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 shouldnâ€™t look too different to current iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models.
â€śHowever,â€ť saysÂ Mac World, â€śif Apple does decide to go for a new design for the iPhone 7, we actually think it could be thicker than the iPhone 6, with what Apple calls “sidewall displays.â€ť
The report added: â€śApple has published a patent relating to such displays, which hints at a future iPhone with a display that extends onto the sides of the device, providing interactive or touch sensitive portions that give access to the slide to unlock functionality, music player controls, messaging readout, caller ID, system controls and more.â€ť
Appleâ€™s next iPhone versionÂ will reportedlyÂ come with a dual-lens camera setup, according to reports.Â The word comes viaÂ Daring Fireballâ€™s John Gruber, who, during his latest â€śThe Talk Showâ€ť podcast claimed heâ€™d heard from â€śa birdie of a birdieâ€ť that Appleâ€™s next phone will feature the â€śbiggest camera jump ever.â€ť
â€śIâ€™ve heard that itâ€™s some kind of weird two-lens system where the back camera uses two lenses and it somehow takes it up into DSLR quality imagery,â€ť he said.
