Apple's next flagship device is rumored to launch in September and chip suppliers including Cirrus Logic and Analog Devices have started to book production capacity for the device, according to DigiTimes.

Multiple sources have reported that Apple will remove the 3.5mm headphone jack on the iPhone 7 in favor of an all-in-one Lightning connector for audio output, charging and connecting peripherals. And now we'll reportedly also see a second speaker added to the device.

According to rumors, Barclays analysts believe the iPhone 7 will have dual speakers supplied by Austin based company Cirrus Logic. Barclays said the second speaker will likely take over the space currently occupied by the 3.5mm headphone jack on current iPhones.

Meanwhile, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus models are expected to have a dual-lens camera system, with driver components supplied by ADI. Plus the iPhone 7 Plus could lack a protruding camera lens.

Furthermore, reports from The Electronic Times state that Apple will move away from Samsung and source most or all of its A10 chips for the iPhone 7 from its longtime Taiwanese supplier TSMC. The chip will reportedly go into full production in June.
