A new report from KGI Securitires analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reveals many of the changes and upgrades Apple will unveil for the iPhone 7.

Here's a look at what Kuo says is coming:

● Processor: A10 chip from TSMC that could potentially clock at up to 2.4-2.45 GHz. It may be clocked a bit lower due to heat and power consumption concerns.

● Storage: Capacities of 32 GB, 128 GB, and 256 GB on both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

● RAM: The iPhone 7 will stay at 2GB of RAM; whereas, the iPhone 7 Plus will get 3GB.

● Color: Apple is said to offer the iPhone 7 in five colors: silver, gold, rose gold, dark black (space black), and glossy 'piano black'.

● Water Resistance: IPX7 water resistance which will let the device survive splashes, showering, and dips in water up to a meter deep.

● Headphone Jack: There will be no headphone jack. Apple will reportedly provide both Lightning EarPods and a Lightning to 3.5mm jack adapter in the box.

● Speakers: The earpiece receive is set to become a speaker with the addition of a new audio amplifier. This positioning differs from the earlier expectation that Apple would put a second speaker where the headphone jack was and will allow for better stereo sound.

● Home Button: The iPhone 7 is said to get a pressure-sensitive click-less home button which will benefit water resistance. Haptic feedback will mimic a clicking sensation when the button is pressed.

● Display: Improved 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays will make use of wide color technology developed for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro.

● Camera: The iPhone 7 Plus features a dual 12-megapixel lens camera. One is a wide-angle camera with larger pixel sizes, a 6P lens, and optical image stabilization, the other is a telephoto lens with smaller pixel sizes and a 5P lens.

● Flash: The rear camera flash will be upgraded with four LEDs (two cool and two warm) and a new ambient light sensor for better image quality.

● Proximity Sensor: Apple may upgrade the proximity sensor from LED to laser for faster response, greater recognition distance, and potential gesture recognition.

● FeliCa: Apple is planning to bring support for FeliCa, a mobile tap-to-pay standard developed by Sony, to iPhones in Japan.

Notably, Kuo expects iPhone 7 shipments to be lower than those of the iPhone 6s at 60-65 million this year compared to 82 million last year. Apple's water resistance requirements apparently resulted in lower assembly yields that delayed mass production until the second half of August.

Apple is set to unveil the iPhone 7 on September 7th. Make sure to follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.

Loans for bad credit no guarantor can amazingly fulfil all your personal desires, by providing sufficient cash into your account. You don’t have to pay a single penny to get these loans.

Because there is little difference between IP-67 and IP-68 unless you're really aiming to work underwater (IP-67 is 1m depth, IP-68 is >1m, which really doesn't tell you much, does it?) Interestingly, IP-66 is actually far tougher to achieve than either 67 or 68, since it involves resistance to water jets, not just sitting motionless at the bottom of a trash can. No, the sequence doesn't really make sense, but it's an International Standard, and they never do...

Why not ip68??

Because it's about the same based on the results I looked up.

Well hopefully water tests reveal this to be accurate!
