Following rumors about the new Apple smartphone, it is believed that the company plans to introduce a color option "deep blue" to replace the option of Space gray for the next iPhone in July. The new tone is next to the already available colors silver, gold and rose gold.
The report makes clear that Apple plans to shelve gray color space, which was introduced with the iPhone 5s in 2013. The lighter shade replaced the black used in the iPhone 5. Over time, the color has been applied to other Apple products like the iPad Air, iPad Pro and 12 - inch MacBook Pro.
The Cupertino company has consistently added color options to its iPhone lineup. In 2008, Apple released a white option with black iPhone 3G. The company had introduced later the white silver option with the iPhone 5s, which also included the option of gold. Currently, Apple added the option of rose gold tone for the iPhone 6s.
The report also says that the iPhone 7 will maintain the same glass surface LCD employing current iPhone models. This corroborates a previous report informing that there will be updates for the next iPhone screen 7 and will have to wait until 2017 with the release of "iPhone 8" see if OLED technology is included in the display.
Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 7 this September, with the latest rumors suggesting the new smartphone will be similar to that of the iPhone 6 and 6s design, so that major changes would come only in 2017 with the departure of a new iPhone model.
However, the Apple smartphone could be stripped of a 3.5mm headphone jack. Among other additional features that are rumored to include the device could be incorporating a chip A10 for more processing power, chip LTE and Wi-Fi faster, among other things.
