Leaked iPhone 7 Case Supports no Headphone Jack Rumor

Rumors have been claiming the iPhone 7 won't include a headphone jack and instead will rely on Bluetooth or the Lightning port for audio out, and now what purports to be a leaked case for the smartphone backs that up.

The images of a case that look like they're for an updated iPhone design first appeared on the @OnLeaks Twitter account. Assuming they're legit, and not mocked up only on speculation, the next iPhone may do away with the headphone jack port and gain stereo speakers.

Based on early reports, Apple will ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack with the launch of the next iPhone, presumably this fall. Removing the component frees up space for other design elements such as stereo speakers or a waterproof body.

Reports also claim the next iPhone will sport dual rear-facing cameras, although it appears that will be an iPhone 7 Plus-only feature.

Assuming Apple follows its usual pattern the next iPhone refresh will come around September, so we still have a few months to wait for the official word on new features.
