It is barely a month since there were whispers in the market that Apple was planning to bring a Smart Connector for the iPad Pro line to the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone 7. The Smart Connector features a 3-pin port that makes it easy for users to connect other accessories such as a keyboard as well as charging.
The rumors first broke on the same Japanese blog and which is now down playing the story adding that Apple has withdrawn the Smart Connector ports from the next iPhone 7.
The Smart Connector is an Apple’s iPad Pro range invention designed to facilitate the Lighting port to provide power as well as data simulation. Exactly how would these work on an iPhone? The answer ultimately lies with Apple and other eagerly awaiting creative third parties. Generally, with secondary accessories able to draw power from the phone, this could easily lead to more reliable wireless headphones as well as mini keyboards among many other inventions.
According to Apple CEO Tim Cook, the next generation iPhones will be loaded with features “you can’t live without”. He also went on to assure iPhone users that the reported slowdown is not only affecting Apple but all OEMs globally.
This reassurance was followed by numerous speculations of possible features that could be expected on the next iPhone 7. Macotakara Japan has refuted claims that the Smart Connector is among the features to be housed in the new iPhone despite previous rumors vouching of it.
The Smart Connector is not the only shake-up on the iPhone 7. For a while now, the 3.5mm headphone jack has gathered traction from all corners with speculations being that Apple is considering doing away with it which will ultimately see thinner phones come into the market.
Speculations from all iPhone die-hards are that there will be no radical design changes in the next iPhone. Besides the hardware upgrade, slimmer, and a dual-camera, there is no much expected from the iPhone 7 which is expected in September as is the usual case.
There are also rumors that suggest that the iPhone 7 will be charged form a long distance and not limited to the charging pad through a wireless charging feature.
