Weeks ago, we wrote about how future iPhone models - more specifically, the upcoming iPhone 7 - might consider doing away with a headphone jack. Rumors seem to suggest that its new slimmed-down design and updated spatial aspects won't be able to accommodate the jack's 3.5 mm diameter. While nothing has been confirmed as of yet, designer Eric Huismann has envisioned what a concept, liberated of one of its most important hardware features, might look like.

First off, he foresees that the iPhone 7 will introduce wireless AirPods that connect to the device via Bluetooth, meaning their integration will depend on a wireless connection or Lightning cable. It's not outside the realm of possibility, but some have pointed out that this will make charging very cumbersome.

Secondly, Huismann swaps out the standard Home button in favor of one that uses 3D touch. Other ideas include a miniature, 4-inch version of the phone, as well as the reintroduction of a forgotten colorway: space black.

It'll be interesting to see which, if any, of these features will be implemented. Stay tuned to Highsnobiety for more iPhone 7 coverage.
