Next-gen iPhone cases reveal dual camera and Smart Connector

“Cases claiming to be designed for the next-generation iPhones, currently being dubbed the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, have been released online today,” Benjamin Mayo reports for 9to5Mac.

“Although the cases do not show anything drastically different to what we’ve been hearing for months, with most of the chassis mirroring the appearance of the iPhone 6s,” Mayo writes, “it is interesting nonetheless to see the design formalized into cases that are apparently going to be on sale by the end of the month.”

Mayo reports, “The case renders include a depiction of what the dual camera system on the 5.5 inch iPhone 7 Plus could look like, suggesting that it will have a binocular-esque appearance of two camera iris holes side-by-side with a sizeable gap between them… The iPhone 7 Plus case also includes space for the 3-pin Smart Connector on the back of the device… [and] the cases do not include holes for a 3.5mm headphone jack.”

MacDailyNews Take: Oh, yes, we want that two-eyed beast!


  1. Have never cared much for iPhone cameras as a selling point.

    When I need a photo fast, I can pull the Canon out of the pocket and take a shot in maybe five seconds. It’s a reflex.

    With my iPhone, it has never been that easy. I use it for videos exclusively, though.

    But I will still buy the iPhone 7, and with 256 GB.

      1. Yes, but photography is what I do. Two Canons, a Nikon DSLR, and my iPhone. Sometimes even a view camera.

        That is why I was speaking above about my own experience. the iPhone is great for most photographs taken by most people – the billboard ad campaign showed what they can do – but it was not designed to make quick photos.

      1. Compared to sports photographers, mine are slow.

        A lot of those guys have a great sense of anticipation. They aim the camera to where the action will be.
