Is this proof that the iPhone 7 won’t feature a headphone jack?

Fans of the 3.5mm audio jack may want to look away now…

The leak comes courtesy of prolific leaker and journalist Steve Hemmerstoffer.

As seen in the leak, the cases have space for speakers, buttons and a Lightning port, but no standalone headphone port hole.

The images match a long-standing rumour that Apple is abandoning the jack socket for the next flagship iPhone.
