The iPhone is a cultural phenomenon with 13 million iPhone 6S/6S Plus sold during its opening week last month. What?! Seriously, what? Aside from being the most ubiquitous smartphone in the world, the iPhone is also the most gossiped about phone ever. If history repeats itself, Apple ought to be unveiling their tenth iteration — the iPhone 7 as it will be predictably be named, unless Apple plans on pulling a fast one on us — next fall. And of course, rumors about it are absolutely rampant. Given that it’ll be the number 10 in iPhone versions, we’re expecting to see some major upgrades.
In a new concept video for the iPhone 7 by ConceptsiPhone, some insanely cool ideas for the new iPhone are proposed. One of the latest murmurings about the handset include a brand new screen (possibly a foldable screen?) that extends all the way across the entire front face of the iPhone — thereby eliminating the Home button. This isn’t the first time rumors about a disappearing Home button have surfaced. Before the launch of the iPhone 6 (sooo two years ago), there had been buzz about the tech giant eliminating the Home button as well, but that didn’t happen. However, with the release of the iPhone 6S and the introduction of 3D Touch, not having that button has become more feasible than ever.
Other ideas include an interchangeable back panel that will allow you to customize your phone to express yourself however you’d like. SO clever. Of course, they also predict a serious camera upgrade for both the front and back cameras, because selfies.

Let’s hope Apple can deliver!
