Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reports again that Apple will change the iPhone in 2017 dramatically adopting glass as the enclosure.
The iPhone 7 could turn out to be a major disappointment. If Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is correct, than Apple is not changing the design of the iPhone this year. Kuo again says in a new research note according to 9to5Mac that Apple will adopt glass in a new iPhone design in 2017.

Apple has already used glass in the iPhone 4. Now that most smartphones adopt a full metal housing, Apple is supposed to find a new design language again to differentiate. Kuo already said the same thing last month. Also new will be the display. The iPhone in 2017 will be using an AMOLED display.
If Kuo is right than this year's iPhone is could not be called iPhone 7. It does not make sense to change the design in a major way in an S edition. It could also be that Apple skips the iPhone 7S in 2017 and calls it iPhone 8.
Since Apple released the iPhone SE, everything is possible. Apple has released an iPhone with the design that is 4 years old. This daring move opened up all directions the iPhone 7 could go. The leaks so far hint at only minor design changes, that are more like fixes of the flaws Apple introduced with the iPhone 6. We have seen more elegant antenna lines and reports about a flush camera lens.

The iPhone 7 is expected to be unveiled in September. Next up though is the WWDC 2016 in June. Apple is likely announcing new Macs.
