Apple Allegedly Kills Off Single Lens iPhone 7 Just Months Before Launch

Apple has allegedly killed off plans to release three different iPhone 7 models just months before launch.

We've seen rumors and mockups circulating for sometime that suggest Apple might be launching a 4.7-inch iPhone with a single lens camera, a 5.5-inch iPhone Plus with a single lens camera, and a 5.5-inch iPhone Pro with a dual lens camera. Apparently, that was the plan but Nikkei is reporting that intense competition has forced Apple to drop the single lens 5.5-inch model and only release a dual lens model.

It is the first time that Apple has come under such pressure since it launched iPhones in 2007. The competition is so fierce that Apple killed off a premium iPhone 7 model in the second quarter, less than six months before its official launch in September, according to a source. Initially, Apple had planned two versions of iPhone 7 Plus, one with a single lens and one with a dual lens. The single lens edition has since been ditched, the source said.

"This never happened before. Before this year, Apple never made changes to iPhone's product line mere months before the launch. It has been a volatile year for Apple," a source said.

If true, this may bode well for customers as the 5.5-inch iPhone Pro would likely have been sold at a premium. Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 7 on September 7th. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.

Wow, so many rumours. Some people are so affected by them. Do they really think rumours equals truth?

I don't know why a larger phone has to equal premium and a smaller phone gets neutered comparatively (no mention that the 4.7 model would get the dual lens). Is a Ford F150 more desirable as a piece of fine machinery than a Ferrari? And Apple continues to be clueless about the absurd size of their bezels. Nearly an inch top and bottom for what? Symmetry? Isn't the whole point of force touch so that you can access functionality within the screen area? Lose the bezels and give us a freaking 5" iPhone in the same space as the current 4.7".
