In a significant departure from an established pattern, Apple will not be making substantial changes to the next iteration of the iPhone, which will come out this fall, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal.
The one exception: New iPhones will no longer have headphone jacks, a move that is likely to dismay some users.
The company will retain the current 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch sizes, according to WSJ, citing people familiar with the matter. Apple is planning much bigger changes for a planned release in 2017, the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, according to WSJ. (An Apple spokesperson declined to comment on the story.)
