Just because Apple has seen a dip in iPhone sales lately doesn't mean people aren't waiting with bated breath for the iPhone 7 to hit store shelves. According to reports, that will happen sometime around mid-September, but if you're among the restless who can't wait, here's all the need-to-know info revealed by the latest leaks.

Dual Stereo Speakers?

Folks have been speculating about the nature of the iPhone 7's headphone jacks (or possible lack thereof) and speakers for quite some time. As CNET will tell you, French tech site Nowhereelse.fr released photos of the iPhone 7 missing its audio jack and featuring a second speaker on the bottom instead. If these pictures are credible, it might mean people have been right all along, and we won't see a headphone jack on the new iPhone. Some have theorized that plugging in headphones would now be done through a connector that makes the Lightning port charger your new favorite music companion. We shall see.

Dual Cameras? Why Not!

PhonesReview.com also found leaked pictures indicating that the new smartphone may have dual cameras. Android devices currently have several different camera modes, so that may be something Apple is exploring with the latest member of their family as well. Live Photos, which allows one to take moving pictures, is also likely to make an appearance on the new iPhone. Dual cameras can be useful for a number of things, including snapping pictures faster and allowing for more user flexibility with picture taking. And as we all know, picture-taking and sharing is a huge deal when it comes to smartphones.

Apple's "Juicy" Secrets

Evan Blass, who is known for leaking Apple's secrets early (and is generally credible), totally told the Daily Mail that we can pre-order the new phone starting on September 9. Some sources have guessed that the actual device might be announced at an Apple event on September 7, which would make sense if pre-orders were to open two days after it was first shown to the world.

Increased Battery Capacity

If you're like most people and are tied to your phone almost 24/7, battery life hangs over your head like a ghost. If you do fall into that category, the Country Caller has some good news for you: The iPhone 7 is expected to have better battery life than its predecessors. This will be accomplished by replacing the old battery, which could produce 1,715 milliamperes per hour (mAH), with a new 1900 mAH battery. In other words, this means you can take more pictures, listen to more music, and just do more without having to worry about your iPhone's battery life.

iPhone 7 Goes Waterproof?

Whispers have been claiming Apple's new flagship device will be waterproof. While this is good news, it's also not a dare to see how much water you can throw your handset into without it dying. The degree of water-readiness can vary between phones, and very few phones can actually survive being submerged in huge bodies of water. Besides, why would you want to ruin that shiny new finish? If you're not lucky enough to get your hands on a new waterproof model, you can always purchase a water-protectant case from OtterBox for around $30.

Use The Force -- Force Touch, That Is

The Christian Post dug up some photos of the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus prototypes, which curiously enough don't have a raised home button. This seems to imply that Force Touch will now be a thing on iPhones going forward. If you're worried you missed a new Star Wars Jedi power, we're here to put your fears to rest. Force Touch is, in fact, a pressure-detection method that means the new smartphones will react differently depending on the amount of pressure applied to them. It's not clear exactly what each touch does yet, but fingerprint sensors for your home screen still seem imminent in newer generations. So now, you can open your iPhone using the Force.

These are the major highlights that we're expecting to see on the new phone. Now it's your turn to chime in. What features do you want to see, or are you hoping to see removed/revamped in the future?
