We are all in a happy tizzy, aren’t we? At least we Apple fans are. The iPhone 6S was revolutionary and evolutionary at the same time, and just when you think that Apple has run out of ideas, the company throws a curveball the wows pretty much everyone.
At the time of this writing, we can make an unsafe bet that the iPhone 7 will be released on 9th September. And how could we possibly make such an assumption? Well, the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus was released on Wednesday 9 September, which was the last day of IFA 2015.
But more than WHEN Apple’s new iPhone will be released, we are more concerned about what does the iPhone 7 entail? We scoured far and wide across the World Wide Web, and this is what we found.
- No Headphone Plug: Ok, so this is pretty much confirmed according to the Wall Street Journal; Apple has decided (to a huge uproar!) ditch the headphone plug on its latest iteration of the iPhone. The reason? Well, getting rid of the headphone plug will help tighten up the iPhone structure thereby making it more water resistant, and aesthetically thinner. The Lightning Connector will inevitably help in charging the phone and for connecting headphones. But why the uproar? Many iPhone customers who are planning on upgrading are left cursing the cost of making an additional purchase, which by Apple standards, will be expensive.
- Dual Camera: Yippee! The iPhone 7 will have a dual camera (or so says industry pundits). And this is a big deal because? Well, because the multi-aperture cameras will improve image quality and low-light performance, which has been a weakness of the iPhone camera since 2007. There’s a good chance the device will use camera technology that Cupertino acquired when purchasing LinX Imaging. Any improvements to the sensor quality in the iPhone 7 will be a huge draw for upgraders since Apple didn’t blow people away with the iPhone 6s and iPhone SE cameras. Live Photos are truly a great addition but the market is surely ready for something far juicier to take iPhone photos to the next level.
- New Colours: Keeping it real this time around, Apple says that the iPhone 7 will come in space black. This is supposed to be in addition to the space gray, gold, rose gold, and silver iPhone 6s models that Apple already sells. Come to think of it, this is definitely an option that already reeks of class and a sense of sexiness that the space gray variant just can’t compete with.
Let’s be honest here. From what we hear online, the iPhone 7 will only be am embellishment over the iPhone 6S. Supposedly, Apple is saving all its new-generation forward-thinking capabilities for the iPhone 8, which is slated to be released next year in time for the 10th anniversary of the iPhone. And yes, the talk in town is that there will be no iPhone 7S in 2017.
