Others think Apple wouldn’t change the design of its next generation handset.

iPhone 7 Rumors Features

iPhone SE Seems to Get Strong Demand

No matter what some experts say about iPhone SE orders Apple seems to experience strong demand for 4-inch iPhone model. Consumers seem to be happy with the smaller ‘fruit’ handset that can replace iPhone 5s lineup and Apple happily reports bigger iPhone SE chip orders for Q2, 2016.

It was earlier reported that iPhone SE processor orders were planned for up to 4 million for second quarter. Still customers are so interested in this device [iPhone SE with new features was officially released this spring] that the Cupertino-based giant had to revise its orders to over 5 million devices.

iPhone SE Sales Strong Demand 2016

It is curious that the higher demand for new smartphones is reported after Apple confirmed the first decline in its iPhone sales history. At the same time the company’s CEO Tim Cook noted that iPhone SE got higher demand than expected and this is a good sign for Apple. The company can improve its smartphone sales in the next Q3, 2016 if the demand keeps growing in the summer when there are no public updates.

We’ll know how popular iPhone SE is once Apple shares its earnings report and provides information on model sales and not common iPhone sales. This model isn’t that popular in the U.S. because local customers prefer bigger and more expensive Apple smartphones, but it is extremely demanded in China and India [Apple even offers its iPhone SE leasing program in India]. These two emerging markets have millions of customers who wish to own original Apple phone but want to pay for it as little as possible. There are predictions about Q3, 2016 financial results being similar to Q2 report. We’ll know the truth later.

Apple is now testing iOS 9.3.2 and preparing for WWDC 2016 conference where it should present iOS 10 and other new products for this year.

Apple Offers the Bigger iPhone 7 Battery

How will Apple change iPhone 7? Will this model be more popular than current iPhone 6s or previous iPhone 6 or not? We’ve heard some rumors about iPhone 7 battery. It could be larger than on current smartphone models.

There are different iPhone 7 concepts and ideas what this smartphone could look like. Some rumors assure Apple could make it waterproof. Others believe it could get exclusive features and be more powerful than current generation devices.

iPhone 7 Larger Battery Rumor

iPhone 7 battery rumors promise a bigger battery if comparing iPhone 7 to 6s or smaller if compared to iPhone 6. We already saw some images of possible iPhone 7 battery and they showcased the 7.04 watt-hour unit of bigger size than in modern handsets. Surely nothing is confirmed and won’t be confirmed by Apple right now.

The company is not against other sources sharing rumors about its upcoming devices. Chinese experts mention the battery capacity of 1735mAh and 2810mAh. For example, the iPhone 6s boasts 1715mAh and 6s Plus version has 2750mAh.

If we take a look at iPhone 6 we’ll notice bigger batteries of 1810mAh and 2910mAh and it seems that the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus wouldn’t get larger options. Still Apple could surprise customers and release something more powerful and interesting than 2014 and 2015 models.

Next gen phone should get A10 chip. Its design won’t get major design upgrade. It could get only slight changes. At the same time, iPhone 7 features could include dual-camera system, absence of 3.5 mm headphone jack and other improvements.
