The report claims that one of the main highlights this year would be a thinner profile, made possible thanks to the headphone jack being done away with. Even though WSJ is a reliable source, we aren’t sure about the headphone jack being removed as a recent leak revealed the 3.5mm audio jack will be left intact. However, it could also be possible that the leaked images weren’t actually the real deal.
The report sheds some light on the 2017 iPhone models as well, citing sources “familiar with the matter”. Things to look forward to on next year’s models include an edge-to-edge OLED display with a built-in Touch ID sensor. That means the physical home button will be done away with, which should allow Apple to make the top and bottom bezels a lot smaller.
