You might be wondering why you’re reading about the iPhone 7 when the iPhone 6S hasn’t even been formally launched and when there’s one full year to go before that handset becomes due. That’s because a well known Apple analyst with a good track record has said to investors today that the iPhone 7 is going to be the thinnest iPhone yet from Apple measuring between 6.0 to 6.5 millimeters thin.
This prediction comes from infamous KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who says that the iPhone 7 will be as thin as the iPad Air 2 and the iPod touch as both of them are 6.1 millimeters thin.
iPhone 6 is 6.9 millimeters thin whereas the upcoming iPhone is expected to be over 7 millimeters due to the 7000 series aluminum that Apple has reportedly used.
That’s also there is that Kuo has to say about the iPhone 7 at this point, which should only be taken with a grain of salt for now, considering the fact that there’s a long way to go before we start hearing things about the iPhone 7.
Apple has an event scheduled for September 9th where it’s going to formally unveil the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, countless rumors and reports have detailed the specifications and features the new handsets are expected to bring.
