Apple will switch to a 3-year product cycle for the iPhone, instead of the current 2-year cycle, according to the Nikkei Asian Review.
The shift will start this fall, when only minor changes will be introduced for the iPhone, with more dramatic upgrades to come next year.
The 2016 iPhone update will look almost identical to the current iPhone 6 with likely improvements in the camera, water resistance and battery capacity, said the Nikkei Asian Review, adding that the iPhone’s headphone jack will be removed, although other reports have disputed this.
The Asian news outlet also said a special high end version of the 2016 model will provide better photo features with more editing abilities.
