Apple expected to unveil iPhone 7

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Apple will show off its latest iPhone Wednesday.

And if you're looking for a radical change in its form or function, you'll need to look elsewhere. But if you're one of those people who have an attachment to earbuds, you're bound to be disappointed.

If what sources in the supply chain say is correct, Apple will be doing away with its iconic earbuds. What will replace it though is unclear. It's possible the analog jack will be replaced with a listening device that can connect through the current "lightning" jack. Or Apple may be "cutting the cord" for good, paving the way for people to use Bluetooth technology to listen to their phone calls or music.

Under the hood, the new Apple iPhone models are expected to feature a faster processor, more memory and better camera optics.
