Design drawings bring iPhone 7 and 7 Plus to life

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have been brought to life in new design drawings ahead of their official unveiling this fall. The images reveal the larger camera sensor that’s expected to come to the smaller 4.7-inch model, and the all-new dual-lens system coming to the 5.5-inch model.

iPhone 7 leaks are about as common as British rain these days, so we already have a good idea what Apple’s upcoming refresh will look like. The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus will basically be the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, but with redesigned antennas, new cameras, and no headphone jack.

In case you needed reminding of that, we now have design renders to go along with all those leaks.

And they’re not just any old renders that someone could have knocked up in Photoshop in under ten minutes; they reveal the internal design of Apple’s new devices, including all the tiny little holes that their components will be attached to.

The drawings also confirm the iPhone 7 series will have those redesigned antenna bands, which are harder to spot when looking at the phone’s back. Only the larger iPhone 7 Plus will have Apple’s new dual-lens camera, but the smaller model will have a bigger sensor.

The headphone jack is also missing from these drawings — as expected — and there’s no Smart Connector in sight, either.

It is easy to fake renders like these, but the detail inside them suggests they might be more than that. Either way, it seems there’s no doubt the iPhone 7 series will at least look like this from the outside.
