Will there be a new iPhone to use to accept credit cards?
While all of this is just speculation, there has been a lot of discussion recently about the possibility of a launch of a new, completely redesigned iPhone sometime in September or later this year that you could soon be using with your credit card reader. Rumors say Apple will have 3 new versions of the iPhone 6s in stores this year, including a new 4-inch, 4.7-inch and 5.5 inch devices. However, other sources familiar with Apple’s plans keep saying Apple will only release iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus successors in 2015.
There’s some debate as to what Apple will call its next iPhone(s), and we wont know for sure until officially announced by Apple itself. Business Insider states that if Apple does release another 4-inch iPhone called the iPhone 7c or iPhone 6c, it will most likely be a successor to the iPhone 5c – a more affordable version of the iPhone 5s that came with a colorful plastic body rather than the brushed aluminum.
Here are some of the rumored features for the possible new iPhone according to a GeeksBlog article:
Camera: Instead of the old 8-megapixel iPhone cameras, the new phone will have a 13-megapixel camera with two-lens system that will be equipped to capture DSLR imagery.
Thickness: While previous iPhones have gradually gotten thinner and thinner, there is speculation that the new iPhone device will have some thickness to it.
Processor: The next generation iPhone will have A9 processors with a 14-nanometer design that will make the chips smaller, more efficient and more powerful than ever before.
3D Display: Some sources are saying that the iPhone 7 will have a 3D display that doesn’t require glasses to see, but other sources are saying that this is false and the 3D technology in the phone will be in the camera. The only changes to the display that most speculators agree on is that the display will likely be a higher resolution, which is common in new releases anyway.
Although there will be no definite information on the new iPhone release until officially announced by Apple, we can be sure it is something worth speculating based on their device release history!
