Apple May Finally Resolve the iPhone’s Band Problem

Apple is going to change the position of the antenna on its upcoming iPhone 7 and come out of the controversy of iPhone’s band problem. The position of the antenna was one of the most controversial issues of the iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s and 6s Plus’s design.

Schematic maps for the iPhone 7 that were leaked a few days ago indicated the antenna bands would be changing. Now a new leaked photo of the phone’s chassis has included much more proof as well as showing the design of its body.

The image shows the antenna band is moved to the bottom of the back of the phone, in spite of going up into the metal unibody itself.

However, the image only shows the bottom of the new iPhone 7 though. It’s yet not clear how the smartphone will look on top. One thing to be noted, as we still don’t know who uploaded the photo and not verified by iPhone 7, it remains uncertain whether the photo is real or not.

This is not the first time it has been claimed that antenna bands will move bands crossing the back of the case despite retaining an all-metal chassis. A couple of months ago, MacRumours also received claimed they heard from an unknown source that the iPhone 7 will have a back uncluttered by the bands.

The iPhone 7 is expected to be released in September.
