Apple Might Release iPhone 7 in 2016; Some Probable Phone Specs

Apple has always enjoyed popularity due to its ability to roll out iPhone versions from time to time. While there have been goof ups, lurches and not so good gestures on each of these iPhones over the years, we still await a new model with bated breath. The Apple iPhone 7, for instance, reinstates this claim. Industry insiders are pointing to a 2016 release for the iPhone 7, while this year might see tweaked versions of the iPhone 6 and  iPhone 6 Plus. If job advertisements are anything to go by, Apple is looking for engineers who can work on the batteries for its line of gadgets. This means that Apple iPhone 7 could come with a beefed up and more efficient battery. We don’t believe this points to bigger battery size but it is expected that Apple will pump in a key software suite upgrade with its iPhone 7. [+more]
