Three versions of the iPhone 7

iPhone 7 will be one of the most waited devices this year. Based on a report from Business Korea, the upcoming iPhone could have ceramic material on the back. This is something like those on OnePlus X which offers a premium feel. However, this information is not official just yet and could only be just a prediction of iPhone 7 design.
Not only having ceramic material on the back, the iPhone 7 is also rumored to be waterproof. The waterproof design has been one of the strongest rumors about the phone as Apple filled a patent for ports that eject water. The company also has a patent titled “Electronic Device With Hidden Connector” for connections that self-heal, which will be really useful for a waterproof phone.
