We've been speculating for months, and now, just days ahead of Apple's big event, leaked photos confirm one recent rumor. It was always thought that there will be three separate iPhones released this upcoming Wednesday - the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and the iPhone Pro.
But now, Russia’s Eurasian Economic Commission has leaked Apple's trademark filing online. Apple needs to file specific documents with countries around the globe. While they hold patents and trademarks here in the United States, similar filings must take place in other countries, too.
The documents reveal that Apple has scrapped its plans to release the new, top of the line, iPhone 7 Pro.
The phone was most likely cast aside due to the rumored new dual-lens camera. There were reports over supply concerns. There wouldn't be enough to go around.
Already looking ahead, could 2017, the iPhone's 10-year anniversary, be the year we see the new dual-lens camera?
Many people believe that Apple is holding back releasing major products until the milestone 10-year anniversary.
Previously leaked photos have confirmed the camera and its image stabilization feature. It consists of four dents in the camera that allow the lens to float within the casing. This, in turn, makes for better photos.
Whatever the case may be, it's safe to say that Apple is likely saving the best for next year. This year's changes will be minor, with the exception of removing the headphone jack and/or home button, if it's true.
