iPhone 7 once again dominated our most shared stories this week with the latest component leaks and analyst reports giving us a glimpse of what to expect with the device. A tapered antenna design and what looks like a new auto-focus was spotted in one leak, while another report claimed Apple suppliers are ramping up hiring early as they prepare for a “more complex” design with the iPhone 7.

UBI Research said it expects only the larger iPhones to get new OLED displays, and another analyst report claimed Apple was looking to LG for iPhone 7 dual-camera components and planning optical image stabilization features for the 4.7-inch models for the first time. All that and more in our top iPhone stories:

Apple also previewed the new San Francisco Union Square location ahead of its grand opening today, while reports surfaced detailing Apple’s plans for retail stores in India and an expansion of its Fifth Avenue store in New York.
