iPhone 7 UK release date, specs & new features rumours: Apple may release 4in iPhone along with 4.7in and 5.5in models

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus arrived in September, but now that we're well into 2015 it's no surprise that chatter about what's next for Apple's smartphone is getting louder and clearer. Here's everything we know about the iPhone 7 release date, specs, new features and design rumours and bring you the latest iPhone 7 speculation to help you stay up-to-date with the latest iPhone 7 news, rumours and leaks. When is the iPhone 7 coming out?  

iPhone 7 rumours: Isn't it going to be the iPhone 6S?
Some of you might be thinking, isn't it going to be called the iPhone 6S next? After all, Apple has released an iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5S and now iPhone 6 (alongside the iPhone 6 Plus). So if history repeats itself, it's likely that the next iPhone will be called the iPhone 6S rather than the iPhone 7. See also: iPhone 5S vs iPhone 6 comparison
However, Apple has surprised us somewhat over the past two years, releasing an iPhone 5C alongside the iPhone 5S in 2013, and an iPhone 6 Plus alongside the iPhone 6 in 2014. We're wondering whether Apple might soon decide to ditch the numbers completely and stick with iPhone, iPhone Plus and iPhone C, perhaps. Or, simply ditch the 'S' models and launch an iPhone 7. 

In fact, reports that emerged in mid April suggest that the next iPhone is going to be so significantly different to and better than the iPhone 6 that Apple has decided the iPhone 6S name doesn't fit, and instead will launch an iPhone 7 this autumn.
No one knows for sure yet though, so you'll see both terms used within this article, although primarily iPhone 7 to keep things simple.
Latest iPhone 7 rumours: First iPhone 7 leaked images emerge
On 30 June, the first purported iPhone 7 leaked photos emerged, and we expect that this is going to spark a string of many more in the months to come.

The images come from 9To5Mac, which claims to have obtained the images from a "proven source familiar with Apple's supply chain."

The images show an iPhone case that looks almost identical to the iPhone 6, but is apparently destined for the iPhone 7 later this year. Despite previous rumours, the case is the same thickness and width as the iPhone 6.

Where the differences can be spotted is on the interior of the alleged iPhone 7 rear casing. The mounting points for the logic board and components are different, which suggests changes to some of the inner workings of the phone.

9To5Mac has since published a second report showing what it claims is the new logic board for the iPhone 7. According to the report, the new iPhone will have a new Qualcomm LTE chip that will have the potential to deliver up to two times faster LTE download speeds.
