Nearing weeks before the big release, it appears Apple has scrapped it’s potentially largest and most powerful device they’ve ever created. The usually reliable leak comes from Mac Otakara stating the “iPhone 7 Pro” is no more.
In this report Mac Otakara explains there’s no current need to add a new top of the line model above the iPhone 7 Plus. This nixes the idea of having a third model of iPhone and means we should see the dual lens camera implemented into the iPhone 7 Plus while avoiding a triple-threat of naming confusion. We still expect to see a new flush, capacitive home button, the A10 processor and of course the 3.5mm headphone jack is now gone.
The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are expected to be revealed September 7th, with preorders beginning 2 days later on the 9th. A recent leak from AT&T does suggest a delayed launch of September 23rd, but the original September 16 launch is still very much possible.
