Leaked case images fuel speculation iPhone 7 lacks headphone jack

French website NowhereElse has posted what it claims to be several leaked photos of a silicone iPhone 7 case obtained from an accessory manufacturer, fueling previous rumors that Apple is doing away with the headphone jack. The clear case appears to fit a phone similar to the iPhone 6 and 6S in shape and button placement, but with a cutout for a second speaker where the previous phones had a 3.5 mm headphone port. Apple has been rumored to be looking to drop the headphone jack in favor of adding a second speaker for stereo audio, and is expected to launch cord-free Beats earphones alongside the new iPhone 7.

The case’s camera cutout is larger on one end than the other, but given the style differences between cases it’s impossible to say what that means for the size and shape of the camera coming in the new phone. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo at KGI Securities has suggested the iPhone 7 Plus could include a dual-camera system that would incorporate two distinct lenses, incorporating the Linx camera technology that Apple acquired last year.
