Apple will be launching a new 10th anniversary edition iPhone

iPhone 7

LONDON: Apple launched their flagship smartphones, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, in September last year and while many criticised it for lacking new features and innovation, the Cupertino giant ended up selling the highest number of iPhones ever in the last quarter of 2016. However, the glory of the iPhone 7 may prove to be short lived. A recent report suggests that later this year, Apple will be launching a new 10th anniversary edition iPhone which is said to come with major upgrades over the current model. As per the report, the new iPhone is expected to feature a curved OLED panel, a first for Apple and an edge-to-edge bezel less display. The phone may also come with 3D sensors enabling facial recognition for security and access. What’s more interesting is Apple may also abandon its trademark lightning connector in favour of a USB type C, essentially rendering the cords you use now, to power your phone or listen to music, entirely useless; leaving iPhone 7 users locked into an old format with dwindling support as lightning is an Apple-specific technology.
