Come September, Apple will unveil the next-generation of?iPhones,?iPads and?Apple Watch. Past rumors suggested that there are three iPhones in the offing and they are the flagship ?iPhone 7,? the bigger sibling ?iPhone 7 Plus? and the better equipped ?iPhone 7 Pro.?

However, the credible tipster Evan Blass of @evleaks fame says Apple is not planning to release the heavily-rumored iPhone 7 Pro smartphone this year. Unlike the regular iPhone 7, this ?Pro? variant was rumored to feature a rear-facing smart connector port to pair a physical QWERTY keyboard. To top it off, rumors also suggested that a dual camera with optical zoom can be expected. But none of these rumors is going to come true as there is going to be no such device.

Moreover, according to Blass, Apple will unveil two models of its iPhone and they have been?codenamed “Sonora” (iPhone 7) and “Dos Palos” (iPhone 7 Plus). The two codenames are nothing but the Central Californian city names.

To corroborate the news further, very recently, an alleged photo showing a troika of questionable iPhone 7, 7 Plus and 7 Pro made waves online. The phones shown in the photo were indeed counterfeit precisely because they all had “s” logo on their back panels.

As we know, the devices earmarked for 2016 do not fall under the ?s? category. Many say the ?s? appended to the iPhone number (e.g. iPhone 6s) stands for ?successor.? This means the handset will only feature significant improvements when compared to the predecessor. Apple usually releases the ?s? variant every other year.

Moving on to the rumored iPhone 7 specifications, the antenna lines that run through the back of iPhones have been relocated to the top and bottom edges. This makes the back panel look clean, neat and stylish.

Furthermore, reports say, none of the iPhone 7 models will feature a?3.5mm headphone jack. The camera lens will apparently be bigger than the current-generation device. The bigger ?Plus? variant, on the other hand, will differentiate itself from the flagship by flaunting a dual camera setup.
