Does the Space Black iPhone 7 Plus mockup do anything for you?

The iPhone 7 is still just under a month away from being announced, but that hasn’t stopped the rumor mill from firing on all cylinders recently. We’ve seen huge resolution photos of what appears to be the body of the phone. The rumored Lightning to 3.5mm adapter has been lambasted. A prototype emerged, but it was later found to be highly suspect. And those were just some of the articles that we’ve posted recently. The rumor mill never stops though, so today we’ll take a look at what the rumored Space Black iPhone 7 might look like. Spoiler alert: it looks pretty slick.

Macrumors (via TechTastic) got their hands on these images, and there are a couple things that we can glean from them as they relate to other rumors that we’ve seen or heard recently. Let’s start up front.


This shot really doesn’t confirm or deny rumors of a new pressure sensitive home button, but it does give us a good clear look at the front of the mock up. The following shots are a bit more revealing.


Now that’s what we were waiting for… If we’re being particularly picky, I’d call the color more of a “Space Grey” rather than “Space Black,” but there are some wacky names for colors out there, so who am I to judge? We can see a couple of things in this image, including the rumored dual-camera bump, re-worked antenna band layout, and the rumored on-again/off-again Smart Connector pins. Rumors have flipped back and forth on that piece a couple of times already, might be best just to wait until the phone is announced before we know for sure.

One somewhat unusual marking on this mockup is the “S” branding. It doesn’t seem likely that the next iPhone model would be an “S” if Apple’s recent naming conventions are to be believed.


Here we can see the long-rumored omission of a 3.5mm headphone jack as well as “dual” speakers. Rumors indicate that it’s more likely that one of those speaker grills is strictly decoration.
