While the iPhone 7 will likely have many improvements — potentially including a dual-lens camera, a touch-sensitive home button, a thinner body, wireless charging and faster processing — it likely won't have that gorgeous all-glass body.
"As far as I know, only one [iPhone] model will adopt glass casing next year," Allen Horng from Catcher Technology — a big manufacturer of iPhone casings — said at a shareholder meeting last month.
The last time Apple went with a glass casing was with the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s. That glass, while sleek, seemed to collect some minor scratches with heavy use. But with new and modern technological innovations, Apple may use a stronger glass with iPhone 8.
The iPhone 8 will also fall on the iPhone's 10th anniversary, which many are taking to mean it will be extra special.
So if current iPhones in the market are on its last legs and bigger improvements are expected, users may be better off looking for the hottest new gadget on the block; the iPhone 8.
