The leaks come from mobile case makers who have already started creating cases for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. While these cases are often built based on speculation and rumours, they're often an accurate representation of what we can expect a next-generation iPhone to look like.

For starters, the headphone jack will be removed

Apple will be doing away with its headphone jack, in favour of a symmetrical design. The lightning port will remain in the bottom center while a dual speaker system will be placed on either side.

Supply chain contacts told Forbes that the company is currently still testing out the dual speakers, but it appears that Apple is really boosting up the external audio for upcoming smartphones.

The iPhone 7 case does not fit the iPhone 6s camera because of its lower, wider, and tapered camera cutout. Schematics of the iPhone 7 have depicted a larger camera, presumably to accommodate an improved sensor. It is rumoured that the iPhone 7 Plus would getting the dual camera setup.

Lastly, there will be no major design changes for the iPhone 7

The design of the new cases reveals that aside from the cutouts, it fits the iPhone 6 perfectly. This would mean that there are no major changes to the size or shape of the new model – making it three years since we’ve seen a drastic change in the exterior of the iPhone.

Taking into Apple's release history into account, it's likely we'll see the iPhone 7 officially revealed in September 2016! Stay tuned, guys!

Both the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus were released back in September too, we don't see why Apple would change the release date.
