According to reports, Apple is planning to reserve the name “iPhone 7” smartphone, which will debut on the market in 2017. It is reported by Venturebeat, citing sources close to the company.
At the moment, this information is attributed to the category of rumors. However, this makes sense, given the minor design changes of the next iPhone.
