As we get closer and closer to the supposed launch of the iPhone 7, the rumors continue to swirl and it looks like at least one of them could be doubling back on itself. We’ve been hearing since last December that the new iPhone would be ditching the 3.5mm headphone jack. Now, based on leaked images of the iPhone 7 components, that may no longer be the case. The headphone jack is back?

The leak comes by way of Rock Fix, a Ganzhou-based cellphone repair shop that has apparently gotten its early hands on some iPhone 7 components. Among these parts is the Lightning cable assembly for the smaller 4.7-inch iPhone 7 and the headphone jack is still there for all too see. The leak also reveals the module for the larger iPhone 7 Plus (iPhone 7 Pro?) that confirms the new device will be getting dual cameras.

We also see some SanDisk memory chips in 32GB and 256GB capacities, further leading us to believe that Apple might be ditching the 16GB entry point for the new iPhones and it’ll bump the biggest storage size to 256GB. At least that’s what these iPhone 7 components images are leading us to believe.

iPhone 7 Components Leak Reveals Headphone Jack Is Back Again?

The usual caveat applies with as many grains of salt as you’re willing to consume. Your doctor warned you about all this sodium content.

If the iPhone 7 does indeed abandon the headphone jack, it certainly won’t be the first major smartphone to do it. We already see it in the new Moto Z. If you can trust these leaked images, it looks like Apple might be saving that trick for next year when they may have even more tricks up their Cupertino-designed sleeves.
