Apple gives up on iPhone 7 dual-camera due to technical issues

Apple iPhone 6One of the biggest changes expected on the upcoming iPhone 7 was the dual-camera configuration, which, according to previous leaks and people with knowledge of the matter, was supposed to be installed on the bigger Plus model.

But according to a new report coming from MobiPicker and citing “internal sources,” Apple has decided to abandon the dual cameras on the iPhone 7 generation and will instead go for a bigger and improved camera unit as compared to the existing 6s models.

Before anything, it’s very important to keep in mind that this is just an unconfirmed rumor, and it can very well be fake. But at the same time, confirmation that dual cameras will be packed on the iPhone 7 has never been offered, so it’s better not to take anything for granted until Apple itself comments on the next model’s features.

The dual cameras were supposed to be the main feature making a difference between the standard 4.7-inch iPhone and the Plus version, so if Apple indeed drops them from the future lineup, it’ll be really hard to find a reason to purchase the bigger device, given the similarities between the two.

That’s the case with the current iPhone models, as the 6s and 6s Plus come with similar cameras, although the latter does feature OIS. A bigger battery and display make the Plus a better buy for those in search for such things.

But starting with the iPhone 7 generation, Apple was believed to be looking into ways to make a bigger difference between its models, and the dual cameras were meant to help draw this line. Previous reports indicated that the 4.7-inch iPhone would only get a bigger camera sensor, but this would obviously not offer the performance of a dual-camera setup.

The aforementioned source claims Apple took this dramatic decision because of “some technical difficulties” that were not disclosed.

In the end, it’s very clear that the closer we get to the official release date of the iPhone 7, the more rumors reach the web, so just make sure you don’t take everything for granted.
