Cupertino doesn’t like experimenting too much with its smartphones. And don’t get us wrong, innovation is one things, but what we are referring to is rather Apple’s levelheadedness when it comes to major design changes and even more so, adding and dropping models.
Nonetheless the prevailing opinion within the industry the past few months has been that Apple will launch a total of three iPhone 7 variants – the basic 4.7-inch one, the now traditional 5.5-inch Plus as well and an third even more premium variant called « Pro ». Well, a new source claims that the US giant will stay true to its ways and only out two phones this year. To add even more drama to the scoop, allegedly this was a last-minute move as well.
Initially, Apple had planned two versions of iPhone 7 Plus, one with a single lens and one with a dual lens… This never happened before. Before this year, Apple never made changes to iPhone’s product line mere months before the launch. It has been a volatile year for Apple,

Apple is expected to redesign the iPhone, including giving it a glass chassis, in 2017 to boost weakening demand and to see off stiff competition from rivals, including South Korea’s Samsung Electronics and China’s Huawei Technology, whose phones use Android platforms.
Determined to secure its position as a key iPhone assembler, Foxconn is developing its glass casing technology. “Foxconn has been trying glass chassis since last year
We are indeed expecting something spectacular next year to celebrate the iPhone’s anniversary and this might just fit the bill perfectly.
