|iPhone 7 and iPhone SE the cases reveal some details about the design|
With the case for iPhone SE, there is very little difference with the current iPhone 5s. The only real change is at the level of the volume buttons, they seem to be a top coat on the iPhone SE. But for the rest, the design is more than similar to the iPhone released in 2013.
Regarding the case of the iPhone 7 now, there are some changes. The most obvious is in the back, space for the camera moves to the point of being bigger than the iPhone 6 / 6s. This suggests that Apple will integrate a bigger sensor. On the lower end, there are two large areas, suggesting that Apple will put two speakers (against one to date) and will give up the jack.
SE for iPhone, we will quickly set since the presentation will be next Monday. IPhone 7, it will be a little more patient and wait until September before seeing the changes compared to the iPhone 6s.

The manufacturer of the iPhone's GPU will lay off 350 people
It will be difficult not to see a sign of slowing sales of iPhone: the manufacturer of the iPhone GPU Imagination announces that it will separate 350 employees; the measure takes effect immediately for 200 engineers of the British company, and another cart 150 departures is scheduled for February.
Fantasy cautions that its core business activities will not be affected by the restructuring plan: the branches Imagination's PowerVR business (graphics and business), Processors (GPUs that are found in our iPhone) and connectivity are at priori spared. Personal departures as well as sales rationalization measures should allow Imagination to find the way of profits after a quarter in the red: Fantasy poster indeed 7.3 million pounds loss, against £ 5 million of the profits last year in the same period.
Against all odds - but should we take his word? - These poor results are therefore not directly related to Apple slump in the smartphone market.
