The iPhone 7 is still months away yet news and rumors about the upcoming smartphone just keeps on rolling in. It is expected to be a very popular smartphone once it releases though recent news have revealed that it will look very similar to its predecessor, the iPhone 6s. Still, a new report has signalled that there will be another feature in the iPhone 7 that makes it different from last year?s smartphone.

According to 9to5Mac, the iPhone 7 is expected to have a larger earpiece and would have a relocated ambient light. This comes straight from well renowned Japanese tech website Mac Otakara. The reports mentions that the makers of protective screen protector have stopped receiving orders because there are changes, which makes the LCD protectors unusable.

The same report mentions that the ambient light sensor of the iPhone 7 is said to have been moved to the right side of the earpiece. At the moment, the iPhone 6s has the sensor on its left side. Also, the report cites that the iPhone 7 will have a slightly larger earpiece as compared to its predecessor. This means that any current LCD screen protectors will be rendered unusable for the iPhone 7.

MacRumors report that though there will be a small design tweak for the iPhone 7, Apple fans will be happy to hear that there will be a major design change in 2017. This could come as a result of the Cupertino-based company making the switch to AMOLED displays starting next year. The same MacRumors report mentions that an iPhone with an edge-to-edge display and an all glass body may surprise everyone in 2017.
