Reported iPhone 7 case images show off slimmer design and no headphone jack
An image of a supposed iPhone 7 case has surfaced, months ahead of the device's expected launch. If this case is accurate, it backs up a few previous reports regarding the device, such as the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack, as well as an overall similar design to the iPhone 6 and 6s. The back of the case also appears to have a cutout for a bigger camera.
The photos of the case come from noted leaker @OnLeaks:

Note that it's still early days, and case makers are unlikely to have access to iPhone 7 design materials just yet, so any cases that emerge aren't based off of a final product.
The iPhone 7 is expected to be announced later this year. In addition to ditching the headphone jack, the phone is said to be losing the antenna lines on the back, as well as the camera bump, both of which have been present on Apple's last two iPhones. Speaking of the camera, the iPhone 7 Plus, supposedly the 5.5-inch version of the device, will reportedly have a dual-lens camera system on the back.
