    The iPhone 7 Tech Specs show that only one speaker is on the bottom? Looks like only a microphone on the one side.

    Did you watch the Keynote? The other speaker is in the earpiece, on top of the Phone, in order to be stereo.

    I thought both speakers were supposed to work on my I7?

    Does the left speaker do anything? I can hear sound out of the ear piece and bottom right speaker. Seems like the bottom left doesn't do a thing....

    Symmetry, and a mic. Think about how bad it would look if that side was closed off, now that there is no headphone jack there :)

    It's been like that on basically every iPhone--that there is only one speaker on the right. Take a look at the iPhone 4 design too.
