The iPhone 7 is coming on September 7.
Although almost everything has leaked out already, we still have some questions about the new iPhone that we can’t wait for Apple to answer.
Keep reading to find out what we want to know.
Will Apple finally kill the 16 GB storage option?
- Steve Kovach/Tech Insider
16 GB of storage simply doesn’t cut it for most people. But Apple has been adamant over the years and kept the entry-level iPhone at a wimpy 16 gigs.
This year could be different. According to Joanna Stern of The Wall Street Journal, Apple will start the iPhone with 32 GB of storage, which should be enough for many. There are also reports that the iPhone will max out at 256 GB. Sweet.
Why is Apple removing the headphone jack?
It’s all but confirmed that Apple will remove the standard headphone jack in the iPhone 7. Get over it.
But it’ll be more interesting to hear the company’s explanation for why this is happening. Did it come up with a better standard for wireless headphones? Is it all about Bluetooth now? Does the Lightning connector make that much of a better headphone jack replacement?
We’ll find out soon.
Will Apple include a dongle that works with regular headphones?

If Apple kills the traditional headphone jack, it’ll almost certainly make some sort of dongle that’ll let you use your old headphones through the Lightning port.
But the real question: Will Apple include a dongle with the iPhone 7? Or will it make you buy one for an extra few bucks?
How much will those rumored wireless earbuds cost?
- Antonio Villas-Boas/Tech Insider
Another result of killing the headphone jack: Apple is rumored to have a new pair of wireless earbuds.
Those earbuds will almost certainly cost extra, so our question is this: How much? Samsung’s wireless earbuds cost $200, so we wouldn’t be surprised if Apple’s earbuds were in that range as well.
Will there be new color options?
There have been a few unconfirmed reports that Apple is considering dark blue and glossy black color options for the iPhone 7. Will those rumors turn out to be true?
Why are there two camera lenses on the back?
Leaked photos of the Plus model of the iPhone 7 show a camera with two lenses. Why?
So far we know that dual lenses could help recreate the bokeh effect found on DSLR cameras. That feature was also hinted at in Apple’s invitation to the iPhone 7 event.
Will battery life get any better?

Apple has a habit of making new iPhones thinner without significantly improving battery life. It looks like the iPhone 7 will be about the same thickness as the iPhone 6s, so here’s hoping Apple is able to squeeze a lot more out of the battery.
