Rumor: 2017 iPhones won’t include glass chassis or wireless charging; will add red color

Supply sources in Taiwan are claiming Apple’s 2017 iPhones will simply be iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus — typical “s” updates to this year’s models — and there won’t be a spectacular redesign, Macotakara reports. A source claims a red color offering is the only likely change to the design, flying in the face of nearly every other rumor about next year’s iPhone, most of which foresee at least one model with an OLED screen, glass chassis and a bezel-less display that increases screen size. The new sources also claim that the main internal upgrade will be the addition of an A11 chip, adding that the much-rumored wireless charging addition isn’t coming either.
