The next iPhone has been in the spotlight for quite some time. The rumours have now especially gained momentum with the launch date so near, and the latest leak brings in some new unheard of information about the iPhone. Apparently, the optical image stabilisation feature that was exclusive to Apple's Plus iPhone models is now coming to the next 4.7-inch iPhone as well.

A report by reveals the image of an alleged camera module of the upcoming iPhone. The image shows four areas around the lens where the OIS may be embedded. These areas are speculated to don the hardware that allows the camera module to travel in order to stabilise photos.

Apple is heavily rumoured to introduce the dual camera setup in its next Plus variant giving it a big upgrade. It's only fair that the 4.7-inch variant gets a few iterations as well, and OIS seems to be a solid bet. Past leaks hint that the camera lens is also larger on the next iPhone compared to the current generation, indicating other unknown upgrades.

For now, we are expecting Apple to hold an event on September 7 to unveil its 2016 flagship. There has been some debate on what the upcoming iPhone will be called, and rumours have boiled it down to either iPhone 6SE or iPhone 7. September 16 is the speculated date for the release of the smartphone in the market, and carriers may make it available a little later on September 23. The big change in the upcoming iPhone is that there is expected to be no 3.5mm audio jack this time around.
