According to sources from Taiwanese suppliers, Apple's new smartphones will not be iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, but iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. At the same time they will become updated versions of the current generation, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, without significant design changes. The main innovation will be the A11 processor, but rumors of a glass case and wireless charging are not justified. In addition, it is reported on the appearance of an additional color option – red. It also assumes the output of an average 5-inch iPhone with a dual camera, mounted vertically, and not horizontally like the iPhone 7 Plus.

Based on this tradition, the appearance in 2017 of models of iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus looks logical.
