During the last several months, all the reports and rumors related to the iPhone 7 release had been swirling throughout the web. All of them claimed that the device will be released in 2016. However, it seems that is not going to happen. But why?
Read this article to get the answer.
iPhone 7 Release Unlikely to Happen in this Year
Apple refreshes its smartphone lineup every year. So, it was quite logical to believe that the same thing would happen in 2016, as all the earlier reports and rumors did. But now, according to Evan Blass, a tipster who has achieved a huge popularity of revealing accurate information about the future Apple devices, has claimed that the iPhone 7 release is not going to take place in this year. And more importantly, he reveals the reason behind it. He says that the entire iPhone upgrade cycle has been shaken up. Starting with the iPhone 6, a three-year upgrade cycle has been adopted. As a result, the next model will have almost the same look as the one introduced back in 2014.
The device will have the old chassis. However, there will be some changes in the design. For example, the 3.5-mm headphone jack will be ditched, as claimed by different reports. Due to the changes and revamped upgrade cycle, Apple is forced to push the iPhone 7 release back to 2017.
There is also another reason behind the delay. 2017 will be the 10th anniversary of the iPhone lineup. According to different reports, Apple wants to celebrate the anniversary with the iPhone 7.
Delay of iPhone 7 Release Means No iPhone 8 in 2017
It was strongly expected that the iPhone 8 will be released in 2017. But as the iPhone 7 release has been pushed back to 2017, the iPhone 8 will definitely not be released at the expected time. More specifically, it is not going to release anytime soon due to the revamped upgrade cycle.
