    I'm probably crazy but check this out. The beats by dre twitter account posted this photo and its bugging me because it doesn't look like the iPhone 6 or 6s. The top section of the phone with the camera and speaker looks too small (not tall enough). The iPhone 6 has equal height top and bottom but this pic looks off. Could this be a leaked iPhone 7?

    ALSO!! The top of the ringer switch is supposed to line up with the top of the screen. This picture looks like the ringer switch is much lower than on a 6(s) or 6(s) plus

    Look at my updated comment on the ringer switch. What about that?

    It's the angle ..... No way Apple uses the same general design of the 6 for the 7 based on their history.

    No need to be sarcastic with comments that don't add to the discussion.

    It just looks like lazy photoshop to me. Whoever tweeted the picture didn't line up the simulated screenshot onto the phone correctly. I see this all the time in movies/tv. The ringer switch doesn't appear to be in the proper location because the screenshot was pushed too far up on the phone.

    Its not the 7. End of story. Wait until August to see actual rendering. We get these over excited members from time to time thinking they see something that is not real :)

    We won't see the iPhone 7 schematics until March or April like with the iPhone 6, so it's still a couple of months before we find out what it will look like.

    As Cergman said. The screen was photoshopped into the image and they didn't line it up correctly. It's shifted up a tad (which is why the top bezel looks smaller and the top of the screen not being in line with the silence switch. It is 100% a 6 or 6s with a poorly done photoshop on the screen image. Not a 7.

    Why would 7 look practically exactly like a 6? Not really Apple's MO.

    Pretty sure iPods don't have antenna bands nor earpiece speaker.
    That said I don't think this is an iPhone 7 either.

    Pretty sure that all we're seeing here is a photo of an iPhone 6 or 6S-generation device, with the screenshot poorly superimposed. It happens all the time. A lot of the promotional shots coming form Apple/Beats marketing departments have some level of digital rendering, and are rarely 100% natural objects with no rendering or touch-ups. Usually it's a good enough job that no one notices, but sometimes the work is rushed, and people look at the errors and automatically assume this is some leaked new model because the proportions are off.

    Bottom line: someone took that photo, the phone might or might not have had something on the screen, but whatever was there was not what they wanted. So they took a screen shot with another phone, slapped it over the phone's screen in the photo, and didn't align it properly.. so the top of their pasted image is riding higher than it would actually be on an iPhone 6/Plus, and that makes the positioning of the speaker and the the side volume switch look off.

    It's not hard to do. If I want that same phone in that same pic to display this thread, that can be arranged.

    Or, I can fix the the first image, positioning the screenshot better on the the front of the phone, and guess what? It looks like a normal iPhone 6/Plus again.

    apple seems to make a huge jump and iphone7 is actually running android.

    What's that photo even used for? Neither the phone nor the headphones look that great on it.

    It's not the iPhone 7, according to recent rumours Apple haven't even decided on the design of the iPhone 7 yet. Leaked parts will probably follow later in the year just like they did with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus the other year.

    You don't accidentally release a glamour shot of a phone that doesn't match for another eight months.

    These things are heavily rendered and tweaked in photoshop or whatever else
