Possible iPhone 7 documentation points to merely cosmetic speaker openings

It's probably time to stop repeating that the rumors machine of the “IPhone 7” It is in full swing, or soon you are sick of the clich, but here we are again. Today, the french site NWE published images of what might be a technical drawing of Apple's upcoming smartphone, and it gives us (more) some tips on what we'll see in September.

Possible schematic drawing of

The above image obviously should not be taken as real without a doubt, after all, anyone makes such a drawing and prints without much difficulty; Anyway, according to the site, it was recovered from one of Apple's production lines in China and no one wanted to specify if anything from Foxconn or Pegatron, however.

The most relevant information taken from the piece of paper has to do with the next iPhone's speakers. So far the speculation would be that, with the end of the headphone jack, Apple would adopt a symmetrical design on the bottom of the handset, with the same number of audio out holes on each side of the Lightning port and a loudspeaker. Double speaker, narrow.

For the leaked scheme destroys all this noise by suggesting that the left openings of the Lightning entrance are merely cosmetic only one of them would be used for a microphone, and all the others would be there only for the sake of visual symmetry. And the iPhone would still have a mono speaker. This solution is similarly adopted in iPhone SE.

What's more, nothing new under the sun of rumors: the design indicates redesigned antennas and larger camera modules are there, practically “confirming” the veracity of these items.
