We’re getting to that time of year where graphic artists begin to try and think exactly what the next iPhone will appear like and exactly what features it will contain, with concept art turning up all over the Web. There are numerous new concepts appearing every day that we cannot possibly inform you about them all, however when one appears to simulate the design aesthetic of the Apple Watch, we believed you may want to see it.

iPhone 7 concept main

Turning up over on DeviantArt and put together by StudioMonroe, this iPhone 7 principle borrows from the Apple Watch by having the screen’s glass mould directly into metal at the side of the screen.

This is a step beyond the a little curved edges that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus’s screens already have, and theoretically allows the iPhone 7 to be made physically smaller while keeping the exact same screen size as its predecessors.

Also part of that downsizing without decreasing screen size is the removal of the Touch ID Home button. According to the idea, any Touch ID function would be taken care of by a sensing unit built into the screen simply as among Apple’s own patents explains, while the act of pressing the button to go back to the home screen would be taken care of by Force Touch. With Force Touch very much anticipated to make an appearance in future iOS devices together with the Taptic Engine, we truly wouldn’t wish to bet versus it.

It’s also worth explaining that this concept does not seem to have any type of volume controls, however perhaps we’re being a little bit particular. It’s also most likely that such features would be handled on the software application side with this certain idea, but we don’t see Apple doing something along those lines simply yet, that’s for sure.
