#iPhone7 #iOS – Rumored : Apple iPhone 7 Price And Specs : If the rumor mill is to be believed about the possible announcement date of the highly-anticipated iPhone 7, then it is almost sure that a date around September 5 or 6 is likely.
This would mean that the day it becomes available to buy would probably be September 16. But has anything new been leaked?
iPhone 7 price
According to the latest rumors around the web, the price of the iPhone 7 could fall in line with the prices of the 6s and 6s Plus. This information was leaked via Weibo and mentions that it is because the cost of an iPhone rarely varies from year to year.
The standard iPhone 7 model is expected to be priced around US$649, £539 GBP, and AU$1079. For that price, you will likely get a starting storage capacity of 32GB, which is great news considering that 16GB had been deemed to be too small for iOS 10 and a decent amount of apps, images, and other media.
As for the top end of the price range, the iPhone 7 is expected to be more expensive than 128 GB the iPhone 6s, which was at US$849, £699, AU$1379, but it is being said that for this price, 256GB of storage will be on offer.
For the moment, there is some confusion about whether there will be a 64GB or 128GB middle variant available. A recent leak from the Chinese WeChat site has built up some consensus on prices for all three sizes, but sources cannot agree on what the actual cost of a 64GB or 128GB iPhone 7 will be.
Water resistant iPhone 7
Apple has long been focusing on improving the durability of the iPhone. In fact, it was the so-called “Bendgate” scandal of 2014 that pushed the company to include reinforced aluminum in the iPhone 6s, but the latest rumor suggests that with the iPhone 7, Apple is likely to go much further.
According to Mac Otakara, there are some iPhone prototype units with “ruggedized” features. Previous rumors had suggested that Apple was looking into using silicone seals to protect the entry points of the iPhone 7 and an encapsulated system for chips.
