Earlier, Macotakara report suggested that the iPhone 7 would be offered in deep blue color variant, but that doesn t seem to be the case now. I have heard another information that space grey would not be disconnected, but would be possibly updated to much darker color. Also, the new color would not be deep blue, but possibly formal black which is close to black, a source familiar with the development told 9To5Mac.

The Apple iPhone 6 was offered in three different colors Space Gray, Gold and Silver. With the iPhone 6s, Apple introduced a new Rose Gold color option. Now, with the iPhone 7, Apple could introduce a new Space Black color variant.
The publication also notes that while the source isn t reliable, with no previous track record, though the IP address was located near Apple HQ. Soon after the report came out, a couple of iPhone 7 renders on Space Black color have also surfaced online. The renders were shared by a couple of leaksters @ShaiMizrachi on Twitter and@appleidesigner on Instagram. While the final color used by Apple may differ, it offers a glimpse at how the iPhone drenched in new color option would look like.
Early reports suggested that the physical Home Button could go away, but the publication reports that the button is here to stay. However, Apple could have a similar approach the Force Touch feature on the new MacBook with a haptic feedback to simulate the click. In case Apple uses a non-moving button, it may also have to use a different pattern for resetting, probably using one of the volume buttons.
From past rumors, we have learned that the iPhone 7 will come with relocated antenna bands along the top and bottom edges, water and dust resistance capabilities, and the 3.5mm audio jack is also likely to go away. The Plus variant is rumored to come with 3GB of RAM, a dual-camera setup at the back and a Smart Connector port as well.
Rumors also suggest the Apple will drop 16GB base variant and replace it with 32GB as standard, and the top end variant could come with 265GB storage. It remains to be seen what all rumored features actually make it to the iPhone 7.
