Is this the iPhone 7? First leaked components [Pictures]

Taiwanese site Apple Club claims to have obtained these images, which it says show the new handset’s screen. It comes amid claims the handset will be the first to dump the headphone socket, instead relying on the lightning port or wireless headphones.

Apple Club says the screens are from the handset, which is expected to be announced in September, and were posted to Wechat. Apple is also said to be testing models with USB-C, multi-touch 3D Touch, dual cameras and more, according to 9to5Mac.

It comes as more claims have emerged that Apple is set to kill off the headphone socket.

In order to shrink the thickness of a future handset, Apple is rumoured to be looking at ways to get rid of the standard 3.5mm headphone port.

Now, more reports suggest the yet-to-be-announced iPhone 7 will feature a single, multipurpose lightning port that will double up as a headphone port as well as charger.

According to a report in Chinese site Anzhuo, supply chain sources have confirmed the removal of the 3.5mm port on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

It claims Apple will instead focus on wireless headphones to output sound, and will sell the handset with a new, wireless equivalent of Apple’s ‘EarPod’ headphones. Users will also be able to use the lightning connector on the phone to connect a headset.
