2017 marks the 10th anniversary of the Apple iPhone. Is the anniversary the reason the iPhone 7 is sticking with the iPhone 6S design?
Steve Jobs unveiled the first iPhone on January 9, 2007. The iPhone 1 with GSM connectivity went on sale on June 29 only on AT&T. 2017 will be the 10th anniversary of the iPhone. The anniversary might be the reason why Apple is apparently not making a major design change for the iPhone 7 as it would be expected by a full version iPhone.

The leaked schematics and rumors so far point towards an iPhone 7 that is an optimized version of the iPhone 6S. The 10th anniversary iPhone is already rumored to be different. It is likely not called iPhone 7S as it will sport for the first time an OLED display and is rumored to feature a glass back panel similar to the iPhone 4.
The iPhone is the most important Apple product ever. It is the biggest legacy that Steve Jobs has left behind. It is quite possible that Apple is working on something very big to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the iPhone. Without the iPhone Apple would have not the growth the company enjoyed over the past decade.

In 2017 the new Apple Campus II (Spaceship) is also opening. The Spaceship is another legacy of Steve Jobs. He announced the plans of the futuristic campus back in 2006. 2017 has everything to be big Apple celebration, if the iPhone sales growth is coming back.
