iPhone 7 Release Date: iPhone 6 Successors Already On The Production Line; Top Features RevealedApple Inc.

Apple's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are still going strong after breaking records set by iPhone 5c and 5s but the Cupertino giant is reportedly prepping for release of two devices – the iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 – in the coming year.

It is reported that the iPhone 6s will be released along with the Apple Watch in the first half of 2015 before launching its flagship device, the iPhone 7 in the third quarter of the year. The iPhone 7 is expected to be unveiled in September like its predecessor, the iPhone 6.

However, nothing is confirmed as of now, because Apple Inc. is yet to reveal any information about its upcoming device and is very unlikely to do so like in the past.

Reports are also doing the rounds that Apple is planning to discontinue the iPhone 4s and the iPhone 5c, and that production of the devices would be stopped in the second half of 2015 though the company is yet to confirm.

Meanwhile, a few features of Apple's upcoming smartphone have been leaked to the media in the last few weeks. John Gruber had said in the latest episode of The Talk Show (via The Tech Block) that Apple is working on extensively improving the camera of its next smartphone, something that can take pictures of DSLR quality.

Camera upgrade would be welcomed by Apple fans for the simple reason that the iPhone 6 has an 8MP main camera and 1.2MP front snapper, when its rival Samsung Galaxy S5 has 16MP camera.

Another website, iPhone7update has also claimed that the iPhone 7 would have a 14MP main camera and 4MP front snapper, powered by a quad-core A8 processor, come packed with 256GB or more internal memory, screen protected by sapphire crystal glass and chassis made of liquid metal. There are also reports that the device would have an A9 processor though nothing is confirmed.
