Everyone is waiting on pins and needles to find out what Apple has planned for this year’s iPhone, even if the current rumors are pointing toward a more “boring” update before getting the bigger design overhaul next year (to coincide with the iPhone’s 10th anniversary). One change that we’re expecting is that the current Space Grey color will be replaced by a deep blue iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Pro. It’s also being called dark blue. And here are the first renders.

These are obviously not official renders straight out of Cupertino, but rather they are the work of graphic artist Martin Hajek. The detailed 3D renders give us a good look of what a deep blue iPhone 7 could look like, including the altered antenna band and the dual camera configuration of the bigger 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Pro.

It would be interesting if Apple does indeed follow through with a deep blue iPhone 7, as going with bolder colors has really only been explored with the cheaper iPhone 5c. It doesn’t look quite as muted as the Gold and Rose Gold color options and it’s definitely more colorful than the standard Silver. I think it looks good, almost like the iPhone 7 already has a protective case on it.

In addition to the color change, Apple is expected to be getting rid of the headphone jack on the iPhone 7 (just like Motorola). There were rumors of removing the home button and integrating it into a new OLED display, but it looks like that’s getting saved for next year’s design. I do wonder about the three metallic dots on the back of the iPhone 7 Pro, near the bottom. Is this for MotoMods-like modularity? Magnetic charging?
